Bios reset


If BIOS doesn't recognize CD Rom or USB, I would try updating the BIOS first. It is available at the link below. You may want to update the other drivers as well.

My first thought is that you have a defective motherboard. I've never seen so many things going wrong except when the board was a dud. It sounds like the BIOS ROM or its interface circuitry is bad. If this board is still under warranty you can probably get it replaced. Try the vendor first. If you bought your board from a company like TigerDirect or Newegg, they're pretty good about replacing defective parts. Then check the manual or Asus website to see what you need to do if the vendor won't exchange it. I have used this same board (purchased from TigerDirect) in a couple of systems, and they went together without a hitch.

Once you've got a working motherboard, it should be pretty much smooth sailing with the rest of the assembly. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya! Please post a followup to let me know when you get your system running.

The cd-rom on my sony vaio pcv-rx370ds is not recognized by the bios or it fails worked fine yesterday 11/16/10 Thank you for any help


I would suspect that the CD-Rom drive has gone bad. The easiest way to check this is to swap it out with a working CD-Rom drive. If the bios recognizes that one you have the culprit. If that is not the problem, I would then check the cables. If they are all ok, I would make sure the BIOS is updated. If none of these solved your problem, It may be a bad IDE or SATA port, or failing power supply.

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

Does it show the device in the BIOS? If not then there could be a problem with the motherboard hardware. If it is not showing up in the BIOS then I would first verify that the power connector for the drive has voltage. Also verify that the slave/master jumpers are correct if the drive has any. You could also try downloading the BIOS update from Fujitsu and see if after updating the BIOS it brings the cd-rom drive detection back. If the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows is not then the problem could be with the Windows drivers or installation. You could try going into the control panel for windows and use the "detect new hardware function" and see if Windows detects the drive.

Please Tell me, ASUS P4S8X-MX Problemn


First of all, try to reseat all the cables inside your computer just make sure there aren't any loose connections.

If that doesn't work you will have to reset your BIOS. (Follow the instructions in your motherboard manual.)

If even after resetting the BIOS the problem is not solved, you may have to replace your CMOS Battery.
