1 Answer

Chassis opened or tampered before

I have just got a ASUS A7N266-VN motherboard. I have fixed a AMD 2400+ processor in it. Now when ever I am switching it on it is going directly to the BIOS setup and writing Chassis Opened or tampered before.

I am unable to update the bios because of this.Can you please help?

Need assistance for download ASUS driver cds


Hi vivek_anand2,
Asus no longer sells the CD for your motherboard. You'll have to download the drivers from Asus & burn the drivers to a CD/DVD disk.
Click on this Asus link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Once loaded type, A7N266-VM into the search window in the upper right hand corner of the page & click on the white arrow. Asus will load another site. The first one listed, A7N266-VM related files for download . Click on it. Another link will load & here you'll have to click the dropdown menu & click the operating system you are using or going to use. Than click, the search button.
All the drivers for the motherboard, A7N266-VM are listed there. Click the + sign to open each set of drivers.
If you need further help just post back here.

Good luck vivek_anand2!
Thank you for using FixYa.

There is normally a system tamper reset within the bios settings somewhere. Alternatively try to reset by the JBAT1 terminal by putting jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back again and restart pc. You will have to set the time again and make sure the HDD is detected in standard bios settings and re start.
