1394 Firewire Problem - Locks on Boot-Up When the cable is plugged in
Just added a 3-port 1394 Firewire to my ASUS A7V8X MB, seemed to install and get recognized by the device manager, but if the 3ft firewire cable is plugged in it freezes at the ASUS splash screen. If I plug it in after booting, my Canon Camcorder is not recognized by MS MovieMaker...I verified the cable is OK on another PC with a 1394 port and was able to download video from my Canon Camcorder from that PC. Could this be a BIOS rev issue, has ayone seen this before? I checked the BIOS settings on the ASUS, there didn't appear to be a 1394 Firewire port onboard...

You could try to reseat the card. sometimes the cards don't fit quite right and when you plug in the cable maybe it moves it enough to get a bad connection.

Interesting question. You made me go look it up. I am surprised to say that is does NOT have 1394 capability on the MB. It have many USB connectors. It seems that since Firewire never really caught on, the mainboard mfgrs have decided to eliminate the 1394 connectors to make space for USB3 connectors,
It is Firewire port/ Interface. The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and real-time data transfer, frequently used by personal computers, as well as in digital audio, digital video applications etc. The interface is also known by the brand names of FireWire (Apple), i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments). This is not as widely used.It works just like USB but it is meant for connecting Firewire capable devices. If you have any firewire capable device (like video camera)and firewire cable, you can connect the device to your PC and use it for high speed data transfer.
Just because an installation may hang does not mean the board is dead. If possible I would connect the hard drive into another PC and check for a virus. While in another pc you can remove important data from the drive & copy to a CD/DVD. Than download the drives Mfg's drive software setup program that will run in Dos mode from a diskett. Reformat the drive and install a fresh copy of windows. You might find that is the only problem. Xp does not always install correctly. There may be a software or hard ware making windows hang.
