Question about Shuttle ak32vn Motherboard

2 Answers

USB functionality turned off in BIOS

I went to use my AK32VN system recently and at startup BIOS stalled at what looks like a dianostic screen with a blinking cursor. After using this system for more than a couple years this was the first time I'd seen this screen. It listed all the vital specs of my machine but BIOS stopped there. It did not respond to any keystrokes and I eventually had to reboot.

Going into the BIOS menus I found that if I enabled USB functionality under Integrated Peripherals it caused BIOS to stall at this particular screen. If I disabled the functionality then startup works as it should, Window2K boots and everything is fine, except that I no longer can use my USB devises.

I'm a graphic artist so I can't do without my Wacom and scanner. I haven't installed any new devises or made any modifications so I'm puzzled as to what casued this switch in settings. Is this a sign of age? Is there a workaround that I can use to enable USB and make the system boot as normal? Or is it time to replace the old girl?

I had this same type of problem - and it turns out it was my fault. In my case I have a Dell 24" ultrasharp monitor, which has a USB hub and 4 ports, as well a a number of media reader slots. I had taken some pictures, then plugged the flash SD card into it's slot - and forgot to download the pictures. So I shut down for the evening, and when I tryed to boot the next day, the machine stuck at the bios screen.

I went so far as to swap out my mobo, but when the problem reoccured, I knew it had to be something else. Then I noticed the flash card, removed it, and the boot went fine.

So, do you have anything new plugged into any USB ports?

Worst case, though, if the machine boots properly when some or all USB devices are not connected, you can still connect them after the machine boots, and they should still function.

I recently replaced a Hdd on a PC and downloaded an op system to a usb and all I get is this screen,is there something I'm doing wrong or missing something?


Try to make sure that the installation that you put on the flash drive is bootable. Use pendrive Linux http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/
I personally use it as it is very easy to make bootable flash drives

I have a dell optiplex gx280, got error:"inmountable boot volume" after restarting will not reboot and I dont have startup disc, please help


Sounds like there is problem with the hard dive file structure, or OS image.

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Add boot option and change boot to usb


You need to change boot options in BIOS. Press required F key during boot. Look on the screen since Function keys vary with systems. In boot options make USB 1st. Save and reboot.

Note: Some systems have an boot option during startup. Thus eliminating the need for BIOS change. Again, look on the screen for F key.

Did you try pressing F8 key at boot up?

    Turn on your laptop and look at the first screen that comes up as soon as it is on. This screen will tell you "Press x key to enter setup", replacing "x" with the actual BIOS access key. It's usually "Del" or "F2" on Toshiba systems.

  • 2

    Press the key firmly and quickly before the screen goes away. If you do not react quickly enough, you will miss the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS. On Toshiba systems, this window of opportunity is somewhere between two to five seconds.

  • 3

    Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."

  • 4

    As the first boot device, select "USB," or "USB HDD." If you have a "USB ZIP" option, you might be able to boot from it, so select that if you have no other choice.

  • 5

    Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.

    SCREEN WENT BLANK THEN WINDOWS COULD NOT START BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING FILE IS MISSING OR CORRUPTWINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM\r CAME ON THE SCREEN TRIED TO GET INTO BIOS BUT ONLY COMING UP WITH PLEASE WAIT


    Dear user,
    if you are trying to access bios for setup of CD ROM as a first boot device and having problem to access the bios then here is an advice for you.

    most of notebooks or systems have a special key assigned to select the boot device at startup without entering in bios setup. therefore please hit function keys at startup like F9,F11,F12 when you start system. F9 and F12 keys are most commonly used for boot device selection.

    hopefully you will understand my advice.

    Update my Intel D845GVSR Bios Version to VA84510A.86A.0056.P20, then my USB driver is not working at all.


    I followed the suggestion of changing the BIOS configuration to the recovery mode, however one thing was missing - it required a startup disk and I didn't have one. I then changed the BIOS configuration to the config (pins 2 & 3) mode, booted up and went to the BIOS/CMOS setup and a new menu tab appeared called "maintenance". I went to the advance tab and selected USB configuration and, instead of a blank screen, there appeared a selection for USB support and it showed disabled. I changed the setting to enabled and three more lines of information regarding USB came up, but required not further changes. I went to F10 and saved and exited and I now have me USB capability back.
