1 Answer

I have a asus P5K motherboard, 4gb Patriot mem., and a duo 6700 processor.I was installing a additional HD , my problem occurred when I turn the system off during reboot. Now when I turn the system on fans run green light on the MB, CPU runs. Now there isn't a signal to the monitor- not even the bios, and I can not turnthe unit off except with the switch on the PS. I reset system, reset memory, disconnected HD's, even changed HD, without any luck.

Hi. here are possible troubleshootign steps to resolved this issue.

1) Kind of obvious) Switch all off and try again.
Switch off the power at the PSU (switch on back), then hold down the ATX switch (on button on the front of the case) for 30 seconds to clear residual charge in capacitors. Switch back on. - If this worked you really didn't need this FAQ...

2) Ensure that ALL cables are tight, pay special attention to the dongle going to the GFX card (if applicable).
Also make sure that your monitor is actually plugged in to your GFX card...

3) Reseat the GFX card, take it out, check for obvious signs of damage, you may want to clean the gold contacts with alcohol or meths.
Put a small amount on a "lint-free" tissue, or use coffee filters.
Put it back in. Make sure it's all the way in and nice and tight.
You should just be able to see the very tops of the gold contacts sticking out of the socket. Make sure that there's nothing obstructing it - e.g. open RAM clips on the motherboard.
If there are any clips to lock it down make sure they are tight.

4) Clear the CMOS.
The CMOS battery provides charge when there is no power at all going to your motherboard; this charge keeps the adjustable settings of your BIOS set. Clearing these settings resets you BIOS.

If you have one, use the clear CMOS jumper located near the battery on your motherboard. Get exact details in your motherboard manual, but basically it's three pins, with a jumper over two of them
[◘ ◘]◘
With power switched off as in step 1, move the jumper to short the other pin
◘[◘ ◘]
leave for about 5seconds then put back, switch power back on.

If you do not have a clear CMOS jumper, remove the CMOS battery. The battery's a pretty easy thing to spot. It looks like a watch battery... To remove it, look for the little clip holding it down towards one edge, push it back so that the battery "pops up" (Tooth-pick is a useful tool for this - Do not use a screwdriver or force the battery in anyway.). Once it's out, place it on a nonconductive, clean, and surface. Try to hold the battery by the edges if possible.
Leave for about 30 minutes then put back in. Switch on.

P5k-e front pannel audio not working

Make sure you check that the front audio cable is connected properly on your motherboard. You can see how it's supposed to be hooked up and where it is located on page 2-32 in either of the manuals I have linked up for you below. And if you haven't already make sure you have the correct audio driver installed.

The only thing i can suggest is remove one of your RAM sticks and see if the machine will boot. I had this problem with mine and it turned out that one of my RAM slots was faulty and would not boot if both RAM slots had RAM in them.

Raid sys on p5k/epu

You are correct. The Asus P5K does support SATA RAID configuration. Page 4-14 in the user manual.
Congifuration [Enhanced]. Only real option is IDE. That does not mean the SATA drives will run like an IDE. The SATA's will function faster. In order to get RAID function you would need to have bought the Asus P5K Deluxe.

Check your motherboard version. Note:
Only PCB R2.0(or higher) support Intel® Core™2 processor

You should find the information between the pci slots Or close to the asus heatsink next to the cpu.
Its quite small text, eg 1.01 1.0 2.0 etc.

If the number is difrent from R2.0 or 2.0 then your motherboard does not support the cpu.

If it is so then you have to change to a difrent motherboard.
