I read a solution of your problems, i did not ry this. But i want you to try in your motherboard: this was qoute by
" 9. anonobomber, 07-05-2002 09:51 read the manual from your motherboard, I'll quote it for you; Chassis Intrusion Lead (4-1 pin CHASSIS) This requires an external detection mechanism such as a chassis intrusion monitor/microswitch. The sensor is triggered when a high level signal is sent to the Chassis Signal Lead, which occurs when a panel or light detector is triggered. This function works with an optional ASUS CIDB chassis intrusion module (see your vendor for more details). If the chassis intrusion lead is not used, a jumper cap must be placed over the pins to close the circuit.
pinout 1[+5volt] [power supply standby] [chassis signal] [ground]
in order to supress the messages you are getting you will need to get a jumper to fit over the chassis signal and ground to bypass the chassis intrusion detection circuit.
This has nothing to do with resetting the CMOS. For board specific locations of the pins check for the manual pertaining to your motherboard"

1. check if ur power cable is properly connected and free from damage or broken

***** if ur answer to the above is YES, then
remove all the power connectors (outside and inside) , all the add on cards, RAM sticks, (and also the processor if u have a pair of smart hand), carefully clean and blow out dusts, and reinsert all of them to thier respective places, and try again.
If u find all these solutions useless, ur processor or RAM or mainboard might defective.

How to I connect my SATA DVD drive to the motherboard?

Hi Vicrod,

I'll need a better model number than "845" to give you a definitive answer, as ASUS doesn't name their boards that way. I suspect that the board supports the Intel 845 chipset and that's where the 845 comes into play. If you don't have the owner's manual, you'll need to look at the board real close; you'll find the model number stamped on the board. The good news is that if the board was built in the last 3 years or so it should have built-in SATA connectors (at least 2, probably 4 or more). If your DVD doesn't have the IDE cable and instead has a much smaller cable, it is in all likelihood SATA. In the worst case, even if your MB doesn't support SATA, you can buy a SATA PCI card to hook the drive up to for under $30. Finally, you can go to when you get the full model number. From there you can download an owner's manual that will have the SATA ports labeled.

I hope this helps you. If you think it appropriate, a fix-ya rating would be much appreciated.

Intel ASUS P4 845 GL Motherboard

Hi, For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and". Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb. Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
