Question about ASUS A7N8X Motherboard

1 Answer

I recently bought a used Asus a7n8x mobo so I can rebuild my dead xp Pro 462 A Socket system. I am upgrading the mobo to the "delux = A7V8X-E" board and replacing my 2400 athlonxp cpu with a used 3200 athlonxp. I am good with hardware but not so hot with software... I am missing my old mobo installation cd. Can I install xp Pro without it and then down load the mobo drivers directly to my xp pc or can I make an installation cdrom by downloading drivers off the Asus webpage - and if so how is this done?

You dont need the drivers untill after windows has been installed....However... If windows does not pick your network adapter up, you will need to load these before you can get online.
Download all the drivers for the motherboard and just Burn them onto a cd as a data disc, so you have them ready

Excellent motherboard. I've owned two of them, best socket A motherboard ever. Nvidia nforce chipset, soundstorm audio. You can definitely burn the drivers to a disk or pen drive for installation after you've reinstalled windows. Windows xp may even have drivers that will work for the network card. So you may just be able to go to asus's website with that system and install directly to the system. You will know if the network card is working when xp asks to activate, try to activate and it will tell you if you have a network connection or not. I would burn all the drivers and software to a disk though just in case. Downloading the drivers and saving them on a CD is easy. Just download and save the drivers/software to your "my documents folder" when downloading from asus. Then open my computer double click on the cdrw drive or dvdrw drive whichever one you have and drag the files from your documents to the cdrw//dvdrw window. Once you've done this you will see at the top of the window "files ready to be written to cd". At the top in the left column in window you will see "write files to cd". Insert a blank cd-r or cd-rw and click write files to cd. That's it once its finished you can use the cd to install the software. If you have any trouble or questions reply to this and I will be glad to help you. I miss my A7N8X-E I sold mine to my friend 5 years ago and its still running strong and I used it for 2 years before him.

Max. AMD for Asus A7N8X-X


Find the manual online.  Also, your question is foolish in light of the much better efficiency of new multi-core systems and general inavailability of AMD Athlon XP 3200+ in socket-7 form; it's not like you'd save money changing CPUs, or your system would merely fake it for a few days if you put in an XP 3200+ (in the socket that fits!) you had set aside, and it did work.  On the other hand, XP2600+ overclock pretty well.
