BIOS setup won't allow me to set the system time and date for Asus m2n-sli deluxe motherboard.

My suggestion would be to replace the motherboard, where replacement of the battery doesn't help and the time/date display on BIOS setup is "frozen" (m/b manufacturing defect?) and cannot be changed. If anyone can offer an alternative solution, pleade do so. Thanks.

Where can I purchase a system disc for a Asus m2n Sli motherboard having an award Boot Block V1.o Bios?


If the computer is asking for a system disc, then what it is really saying is that it cannot find the Operating System. This usually means that one a a few things:

1. The BIOS is not set to select the internal hard drive as the boot device. This can change by accident or if the BIOS gets corrupted.

2. The OS itself is corrupted and cannot boot.

3. The HDD (hard drive) has failed.

When you say you need a "system disk", what you really need is to reload the Operating System. You can get Windows from many sources. Then you only need the drivers that are specific to the main board you have. These can be downloaded for free from the ASUS website. Just go to support, downloads, select you main board model and revision, and download the drivers for your particular Operating System. Of course, if the problem is hardware related, simply getting a new OS will not completely solve the problem. A BIOS corruption would be the worst possible issue since that would require a reflash of the BIOS, and hopefully it would be in good enough condition to perform one without crashing completely. The simplest problem would be if the BIOS was simply not looking at the hard drive as a boot device. Go into the BIOS and ensure that the internal hard drive is selected as the first boot device. If not, make it such and then save and reboot to see if the problem is solved. Otherwise, you need to ensure that the hard drive itself is not faulty. If it is ok, then a new OS and reloading of the drivers and other programs is necessary.

I have a asus veriton n282g after the asus boot splash screen the PC remains blank and all there is, a flashing cursor it does not boot any further


If the asus erecovery managment system did not work on three occasions, your machine never posted properly to allow it to complete the operation. Appears that the bios chip is corrupted. You can try having the chip reflashed if possible, or simply replace the motherboard with identical unit so you do not have driver issues.

Bad check sum cmos


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.

You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.

During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
You will also need to set the time and date

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
hope this helps you

Did you set the correct time while you where in the bios?
You may also have a virus infection that is messing with your system time/date settings to prevent your security programs from updating.
IF you cant start even in safe mode, you may need to try a live linux distro to scan your computer.
There are special live distros that are just for this very occasion.

I have just built my first desktop PC using an ASUS M2N32-SLI Delux Wireless Edition Motherboard. Unfortunately the Motherboard came without the support CD containing drivers etc. I do have the user guide...


1. Do I in fact need the support CD?

You dont need the support cd, although you might have to update your drivers for your sound card, network card, or wireless card (IF they dont work) from the asus website http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N32-SLI%20Deluxe

2. Can I go straight to installing the operating system and bybass the support CD?

Yes you can. Go into the BIOS and change the boot option to boot from cd first and this will boot from your windows vista cd.

3. Is this system compatible with this Motherboard?

Yes it is compatible with your motherboard.

My asus m2n e sli motherboard wont start. i changed the pwer supply and it still didn't work.. please help


Okay Try:

  1. If you have two graphic ports out, try both, (integrated and card) your bios may have reverted to the internal graphics chip for some reason.
  2. This is a very low risk, but a risk nonetheless, open your computer, and look for the CMOS battery, Its a little circular silver battery closely resembling a watches. All you have to do is plug the computer out, then take the battery out for about 10 seconds (doesn't matter really) and put it back in. This resets the BIOS to factory setting meaning time and date have been wiped but any other probable conflicts with the BIOS will be solved as well. I have seen pretty much broken computers fixed with that simple little trick.
Hope I helped. :)

Can i use AMD phenom 9850 in m2n-sli deluxe mother board


According to all of my available resource's the processor needs an AM2+ socket but your board has an AM2 socket. So I would contact the manufacturer and ask them just to be safe, but I am sure that the board you have has an AM2 socket for the CPU.

Hope this Helps,

Computer STartup Problem


That is an impressive wait. You must be an OR LP to have tolerated that battery manipulation; hopefully the surgeons aren't up nights over the 3 lost insulated forceps.... It sounds as though the system is dissatisfied with the CPU fan speed or another power/cooling interface component (CPU over 90 centigrade, chipset over 95 centigrade, the power supply fan running, etc.) and thus shutting down immediately to protect itself. Do all those things check out, particularly in the BIOS power/cooling section? How about fan and power connections on your videocard being right and jumpered accommodatingly?


That is, you could connect tach fans on any spare 3-4 pin headers and see if favor comes your way. The system will spin them slowly once it boots and you enable automatic CPU/fan control (and power savings) settings.
