Question about ASUS P8Z77-V Pro

1 Answer

OS freezes after plugging in LAN cable

Running windows 8.1,nvidia 760, Samsung SSD for boot, 2 x 1 TB Western Digital Raid1. Seems to be a mobo problem but wanted another opinion. First time booting up there were no issues connecting to my friends network, now that I've brought the rig home everytime I connect to the LAN whether it be wireless or LAN everything locks up, but the mouse. Tried using another wireless card, removed all wireless cards and connected using the LAN, same results for both. It's as though, as soon as it gets an internet connection it locks up. The PC is definitely pulling an IP, because I can browse the internet momentarily. When it locks up I cannot ping the machine from another computer on the LAN. Any ideas?

You could have a bad peripheral causing the lockup. Or a corrupted OS.

If you have a spare hard drive try loading the os on it and see it the issue continues. If so and you have checked out your peripherals it may be a board issue.

SOURCE: Local area connection, no internet connection

My guess is the LAN port on your motherboard is bad. The simple solution would be to add a PCI ethernet card and disable the one on your motherboard in device manager.

windows XP will usually automatically creat a lan connection for each Network card it detects, if it hasnt done this then the chances are you have not installed the drivers for the Network card.

SOURCE: Can't find wireless networks

According to the specs for your computer, it has a wireless card.
If the wireless driver is installed you will see it in Device Manager and it should be working and enabled. If not you will need to install the driver for the wireless card.
If it is installed and working you need to configure the wireless card to the wireless router's settings, (eg. the SSID, and the WAP or WEP encryption settings etc. so it can communicate with the wireless router).

You need to contact the college's IT support to get the college's wireless router configuration settings so you can configure your laptop's wireless with these settings.

I was running windows 8 and having trouble with it. So I decided to go back to Windows 7 pro, when doing this I inadvertently put the windows 7 on my second internal SSD drive. now computer is...

Hmm..interesting, so let me get this straight:
You have 2 drives, C drive with Win8 and SSD drive with Win7?
You want to revert back to only having one OS on one drive?
Why can't you just erase everything on the SSD drive? I thought you already had Win8 on that drive? If you don't have anything that you need to keep on the SSD drive, I would just format it and start fresh. Although you always want your OS to run on the SSD drive so that your machine will boot up faster.

Hard disk not detected in windows as well as in BIOS

NO PC stated, nor OS
what windows?
never put email in a post, unless spam for 1000 years endless is fun. never ever do that;....

when bios cant see it that means the DRIVE IS DEAD.
lost power, cable fell off or , 5vdc and 12vdc are not good into said drive from PSU.
This is PnP, plug and pray works in the BIOS too, it scans the pCI buses and finds all chips and driver;. hdd, ssd and cd/dvd,BD.

i run the same setup but have 4 drives, with zero data on W10, partitions, so if the OS goes belly up, I never lose data.
Drive 0 boot SSD
drive 1 , 2TB,
drive 2, 1 TB
drive 3, external eSATA, off line until Backup times.

so to boot drive zero or 1, you must tell BIOS which to boot from
its just one bit to flip there.
not sure what PC that is,

here is what to do with a HDD that seems dead.?
the full list.....!!!
  1. can you hear it spin,? yes/no (yes good)
  2. if no its lost 12vdc or is bad.
  3. BIOS says its not there, oops, its not talking at all , bad news. is the data cable to it ok? "sata cable" try MOBO alternate sata port yet? be wise to.
  4. move any suspect HDD to another PC, works now? see all FILES there? then the bad PC is bad, bad cables bad PSU there...
  5. if the HDD makes clicking sounds say so, its bad, or PSU bad.
  6. if using and alternate PC to via a disk, look in diskmanager first. and if drive letter missing, change it to X: the look for files there on the X: drive, see? keep in mind some FILES will not be accessible on alt system due to stricter permissions now. IF running windows 10 (are you) say so, it has super tight, permissions now (reason 1, I use it)
  7. there is more to this but will stop here.

Indesigh cs2 will force to quit while we open the photoshop cs2 with in 10 to 15 minutes.

Sounds as if you have filled up all your available RAM You might try increasing your page filing however that will slow you down a bunch. Best solution is what I have a SSD with the OS and PROGRAMS on it with a TB HDD for storage extra page filing with an SSD is just as fast maybe faster than the straight memory. A 64 GB SSD will hold Windows 7 Ultimate, MS Office 2007 Enterprise, And Adobe CS$ design Premium With about 25 GB left over. 8 GB Ram Quad core With SSD page filing MS recommended 12 GB so I now have essentially 20 GB of RAM and 40 GB SSD OS and Programs and the TB original Drive makes great storage You do not have enough table space (usable fast memory /disk) for all you are opening that is why some thing must close or stop

Windows Server trying to boot from external hard drive

go into your 'update settings'. there is a section of where it asks you about how you want your settings set and where to send updates to. You may find the problem here. Check all the 'advanced' settings as well. If your Western digital is plugged in via USB and not requiring updates, unplug it while starting your system, after complete start up, reinsert the USB plug. It may show new devise found, then from here, you may be asked to reinstall it to stop the rebooting.
