Yes, It most likely is a overheating issue.. The motherboard has a feature built-in which monitors CPU temperature and shuts down the system as soon as CPU temps exceed manufacturer's limit.. Kindly look into reseating the Heatsink Fan (HSF) also make sure the base of it that contacts the CPU is Clean so proper contact area can be achieved, also apply some thermal paste if handy or available.. Also take a note if the Heatsink Fan is connected and functioning properly..

My computer starts on first attempt only

Hello the homepage is here:

Try to renew the graphic driver by:

Select windows xp.
Open the vga folder and click on global for download.
Unzip the file before you install.
Uninstall the old driver before you install the new.

The fault could also be the power supply, or a ram module failing.
I recommend at least 2 gb ram, for a smooth running system.

You can add a graphic card in the pci-e socket on the mainboard for better performance instead useing the onboard graphic.

Just make sure the windows system is driver supported.

Good luck

Hello i have a k8v-mx motherboard and i have windows 7 installed, i dont seem to find working sound driver for that id apriciate if you coud help me, tahnk you in advance.

Your motherboard does not support Windows 7. You need SoundMax Audio Driver for Windows 7. If you do all the Windows updates it should find the audio driver. The link below shows the Asus website and the only operating systems it supports. Thanks for using FixYa

I want to update my asus k8vmx series bios.what i would do.i dont have a floppy in my system.

 2 options: either run the update program directly from Windows (be sure to have ALL other programs - including security ones - shut down and all internet connections severed) or use the cd version of the updater and boot from it to run it.

Asus K8VMX board didnot detect SATA hard disk

Sounds like you just need to install your SATA drivers. Look around for your cd/floppy disc of drivers if you have any. When you boot from the CD, It will ask you if you have any other drivers you would like to install, thats when you install them and it should read your SATA hard drive just fine. If you dont have your driver CD anymore search ASUS's website or just google (or similar search engine) your motherboard and look for drivers. Beware of some phony sites though. Good luck :)
