Question about ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

Probem with Asus P5W DH waking back up

I have a new Quad Core system with a ASUS P5W DH with 8 GB of
RAM and running Windows Vista-64 Business. It has two
video cards ASUS GeForce 8600 and GeForce 8500. When we shut
the system down it starts back up after about 2
minutes. Sometimes we can get it to stay off after
shutting it down several times. It has a ASUS
and I have updated the BIOS to version
2406 dated 11/16/07.

I have gone through the BIOS and set the following
ACPI 2.0 support - No
ACPI APIC Support - Enabled

APM Configuration
Restore on AC Power Loss - Power off
Power on by RTC Alarm - Disabled
Power on by External Modem - Disabled
Power on by PCIE Devices - Disabled
Power on by PCI Devices - Disabled
Power on by PS/2 Keyboard - Cntl-Esc
Power on by PS/2 Mouse - Disabled

I have the following devices plugged into the PS/2
HP Laserjet printer
Color printer
APC UPS Power supply
Microsoft Mouse
Sony USB storage device
Sony 3.5inch 1.44 Floppy USB

Internally it has the following:
Creative X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series
Two Plextor PX-800A 18x DVD+/-RW
Belkin Firewire b + USB2 PCI-Express Card
ATech 28-in-1 USB 2.0 Internal/External Card Reader (black)

I do not see any wake-up timers set so it seems that
either I am getting a signal from a USB device or I am
having a problem with the motherboard.

I would appreciate any assistance on this system that someone can give me.

    Thanks occupier,

    Modem not connected. LAN is connected to a Linksys G router. I'm going to try disconnecting all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. I'll also disconnect the LAN. If it still does it then I'll try a PS/2 keyboard and mouse.

    System is brand new so I hope it's not the switch.

    Thanks for the help. It gives me some more things to try.

Do you have a modem plugged into phone line - is a signal on phone line causing it (unplug phone line cable to try that).
Could be faulty power switch on front of computer where the contacts are only a hairs breadth apart and the slightest movement/vibration causes it to contact (try this by disconnecting those two wires from the motherboard

I'd try disconnectng any communication cables from the computer first. That would be LAN and Modem cables. If it still restarts, disconnect the keyboard and power down the PC. If it still restarts, then power down again before it is fully off, remove the mouse. If it still does it get a priest to do an exorcism

Hi Trifon,
you are detecting a known problem for 32 bit operating systems.
The problem for those system is that they can manage maximum 3 Gb of RAM.
If you want all of your RAM used you have to install a 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has also a version for 64 bit as well as windows xp (but is not good supported) and windows vista.

Asus notebook windows 7 totally frozen..."not responding" Can't even exit without holding power off.

This is due to the fact that your ASUS Eee PC 701 PC does not offer minimum System requirements to run windows 7

Microsoft has published their minimum specifications for a system running Windows 7
  • 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) / 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available disk space (32-bit) / 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

But I suggest following as min to run smoothly

  • A Dual Processor (AMD or Intel) – you can use a lower Celeron or Pentium Processor, but you will regret it

  • 2 GB RAM (operating memory) – you can use less, but you will regret it

  • 16 GB available disk space and another 20 to 30 GB if you plan on running applications

  • A Vista compatible graphics card (DirectX 9 graphics process with WDDM 1.0 or higher)

  • A Vista compatible sound card

  • Vista drivers for any other unique hardware you have on or connected to your computer

If this helps please do leave a vote and rate for the solution.
