Open your manual to page 40. Follow the instruction shown for; Load Performance Defaults.
If you are still unable to get the bios to load properly contact ECS for a new updated bios chip or you can flash the bios your self. See page 9 for location of bios jumper. Note: bios chip is to the left of JP1.

ASUS K8V-MX motherboard "UNKNOWN PROCESSOR"


There is a processor installed that the BIOS cannot recognize. Update the BIOS in the motherboard.

Also make sure the CPU is in the CPU support list, on the same page. If it is not a supprted CPU, you will get that error.

Unknown processor - update BIOS - press F1 to continue


Hello jssingh

if the system boots but gives unknown processor message then it means you have to do what is says,that is to update your bios.

go to asus web site. www.asus.com

go to services ---> support ----> download

on the left hand side at the top enter your motherboard model number "P5SD2-VM".
under it choose Bios

the main board model will be listed and you be asked to choose an operating system. (choose any operating system. bios is independant of operating system)

look at the list all available bios versions. download the latest. it usually comes with the upgrade utility as well but you can download the utility anyway

you cal also try this link for your bios download
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

format a floppy disk and make it bootabel (you can also use a usb flash drive or even a cd)
copy the files to it. start the computer and boot from it.
at command prompt type the afudos command and the new bios version.
follow the prompt. it will update the bios.


good luck. hope this has helped you.

Hi,
This seems to be a common problem with this board. That error could mean any number of things from a loose cable to a fried chip. Flashing bios will not get rid of the problem.

ASUS P5KPL-CM Bios Problem with Core2Duo 2.8 Ghz Processor.


I recommend going to this site and getting the latest Bios for the board.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

I don't know your expertise with computers but it will require you downloading their Bios boot disk utility and creating a boot disk. then copy the Bios file to the same disk. When you boot it up it will guide you through the Bios flash process.

Be aware that you can completely kill the Bios if it has a problem during the flashing so only do it if you are positive you can get through it.

Alternately if you can push the F1 and get into the OS the Motherboard utility disk should have an updater you can use from inside windows.

boot the pc from cold, note the long identifier number - it contains a 2 character identifier for the board manufacturer. For more info go to the Award bios website, it has a better explanation of this. From there you will be able to either download new BIOS from there, or the website of the vendor/manufacturer.

Asus bios problem


Unless there is a compelling reason to update the bios it should be left alone. Apparently this is one reason for that sage advice.

Go back to asus, download an older version of the bios and install it. Fortunately you didn't end up unable to boot or you would be buying a new board.

A disk read error occured


Your system BIOS no longer recognizes your processor. I'm going to assume you haven't replaced the processor recently, in which case it is a bios error. Can you enter the bios on startup, or does this occur before that? On most computers there will be a message saying something along the lines of "press F1 to enter setup" - of course, it could be F1, F2, F10, F11, F12, DEL or ESC... or possibly another key Try hitting all of those and see if it takes you to a BIOS menu. If you can't get to the BIOS, you're going to have to replace the motherboard. If you can get into the bios, you may be able to detect your processor from there. Without knowing specifically what bios you are using, or what motherboard so I could find the bios information, I can't say more. If you can get into the BIOS, it should tell you what version it is (usually on the top somewhere). Get me that information and we can go from there. If you can't get into the BIOS, it's time to replace your motherboard. Or, honestly, for a system of that age it might be cheaper to just buy a new (or used) computer to replace it.
