Question about ASUS P4S800D-X Motherboard

1 Answer

Occasional BOOT hang

Hi, I have a computer with the following specs:

Intel Pentium 4 3.4Ghz CPU
2.25GB PC2700 Memory
2x 500GB SATA Hard drives
1x 160GB IDE Hard Drive
2x IDE CD/DVD Drives
Nvidia 7800 Video Card
1x Floppy
Windows XP Professional
Windows Vista Business Dual Boot (set to XP default)

It sometimes hangs on bootup, before the Windows option menu (note it did this before I installed multiple OS on it) it hangs just after it finds both sata disks. The screen just goes blank and the computer jusat sits there doing nothing. Sometimes I have to constantly reset it, then it eventually boots up as normal. Any ideas?

I suggest adding 2X 1GB DDR PC2700 memory sticks. Crucial also recommends it, but as long as it's only 1gb thats DDR PC2700 per stick it's compatible, so you can shop around if you like and choose the cheapest.

Hope this helps!

It is telling you that the motherboard can't find the first item on the boot order where it is looking for an operating system, or a bootable disk CDR-DVR. This is usually the DVR Optical Device, or it may be the hard drive. Check your connections on DVR and Hard Drive both at the device and and at the motherboard. Pins in the hard drive and DVR are fine and easy to bend.

My motherboard has fried: Albatron KM18G Pro 2003. It no longer seems to be available. For the computer to be exactly as it was before disaster struck, do I need exactly the same motherboard?


Well you do not need exactly the same motherboard. You need a motherboard that has the exact CPU socket, DDR slots and AGP or PCI slot.
Here are the specifications for the motherboard: Processor
- AMD Athlon/Athlon XP/AthlonXP Barton/Duron Processor
- FSB 200/266/333MHz
Chipset
- North Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 IGP
- South Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 MCP
- I / O Chip : Winbond W83627HF
Memory
- 3 DDR Sockets:
-
DDR200 to 400 non-ECC DDR SDRAM up to 3GB (Single Channel) or up to 2GB (Dual Channel)
Expansion Slots
- 1 x AGP 8X/4X slot (1.5V Only)
- 3 x PCI slots (PCI 2.2 compliant)
IDE Connectors 2 ATA133 channels (up to 4 ATA 133 IDE Devices)
Onboard I/O Connectors
- 1x Floppy Connector
- 2x USB 2.0/1.1 header (4 ports USB cable optional)
- 1x CD_IN header
- 1x COM Port header
- 1x S/PDIF in/out header (S/PDIF in/out cable optional)
- 1x CPU fan header with fan rotation detection function
- 1x System fan headers with fan rotation detection function
- 2x 5 pin system panel header (Intel spec)
- 1x 3 pin Power LED header
- 1x 4 pin Speaker header
- 1x Front audio header (Intel spec)
- 1x Case Open detection header
- 1x Wake on LAN
- 1x 4 pin TV-Out header

So you have to buy a motherboard that has Socket A, that support DDR I memories and has an AGP slot (for the video card).

If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa.

GA-EP35C-DS3R random reboots


Hi Buzznode,

First things first - once you have all the components properly seated (sometimes if a RAM chip or CPU heatsink/fan isn't quite right it'll cause those problems) clear the CMOS entirely. There should be a jumper somewhere near the CMOS battery - move it from the 1-2 seating to the 2-3 (with the system powered down) and count to ten. Move it back over and then try booting up again. If the problem continues, swap the memory chips. Otherwise repost once you've tried the recommendation.
