Question about ASUS P5N-E SLI Motherboard

1 Answer

Fails to go to "Setup", does not show on Screen.

I have four of these motherboards and all give the same problem. Two of them have Intel Quad Core processors installed with 2 Gb Ram and two of them have Intel Core2 Duo processors installed with 4 Gb Ram. All have qualified PCIe x 16 Graphics cards installed in the "blue" slot. Two have 160 Gb HDDs and two have 500 Gb HDDs. All have 52X CD-Rom Drives. All turn on and fans run and lights lite up, but nothing happens on the monitors. I have reset the CLRTC per the manual pg. 1-26 and still no good. Please advise?

    There are four seperate monitors, all working, checked out on other machines. No extra power pins on video cards. Monitors are plugged into video cards. Motherboard manual showes these video cards compatible with motherboard. I was very careful when assembling to ensure no static discharge to the equipment. Please advise? Thanks, William

Windows does that in Device Manager, it isn't the motherboard. If you have a Dual-core CPU, they'll show up as two CPUs, Quad-core as four CPUs, etc.

Needupgrading my cpu


ztz198,

On the top of every Intel processor is the sSpec Number, and the part number.

Intel Core2 Quad, that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 2.66GigaHertz,.........hmmm,

Gateway Support indicates if the option is a Core2 Quad core, it will use Up To a 1333MegaHertz, Front Side Bus frequency rate, ('Speed'),

[1333MHz FSB]

http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4822/DX4822sp2.shtml

That 'narrows' it down to about 6 different processors.

Starting with the Yorkfield-6M Core technology, based on the 45NanoMeter architecture. (45nm),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Yorkfield-6M.22_.2845_nm.29

1) Core2 Quad Q8400
2) Core2 Quad Q8400S
3) Core2 Quad Q9400
4) Core2 Quad Q9400S

Then on to the Yorkfield Core technology, based on the 45nm architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

5) Core2 Quad Q9450
6) Core2 Quad Q9450S

The maximum frequency rate of 2.66GHz, is actually a low estimate. It is a little higher, and rounded off to 2.67GHz.

BIOS Setup might state 2.66GHz, but a better program like CPU-Z, IMHO; will state 2.67GHz. A more realistic figure.

Does it REALLY matter? Yes, and No.

This way when you get into a conversation, with fellow minded computer geeks, you will stand out as one who knows; what hardware components he/she is using.

Also helps you determine what voltage range is being used.
What Instruction Sets are being used.
What technology is being used, and use it to know if the upgrade CPU will indeed work.
Also whether a BIOS upgrade is needed.

I'm guessing it is the Intel Core2 Quad Q8400.

How?

I cheated, lol!,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113110

Intel Core2 Quad Extreme at a maximum frequency rate of 2.93GHz?
That would be the Intel Core2 Quad Extreme QX6300,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

Based on the Kentsfield XE technology, and 65nm architecture.
Uses a 1066MHz FSB.

Motherboard chipset is the Intel G43,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

(Scroll down. Is not in 'alphabetical order'. It is past the P45, and G41 )

Yep. Should work.

Makes me wonder though, about how you addressed the Thermal Paste; situation.

The old Thermal Paste MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned off, and fresh, new Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.
CANNOT reuse old Thermal Paste.

CANNOT reuse a Thermal Pad, IF used.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Do I also assume the inside of the computer case is spotlessly clean, to include the Heatsink sitting on the CPU; and the cooling fan for it?

Heatsink was sit on CPU flat?
Cannot be even a little tilted.

For this reason I remove the motherboard, and install Heatsink.
Then I can hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.

If a tiny crack of light shows on one side edge, of the Heatsink; then the Heatsink is NOT sitting flat.

This = No.

Four screws with springs on them, hold the Heatsink to CPU, Joe?
Yes. I know. This is so you cannot over-tighten the Heatsink to CPU.

You CAN however keep tightening, until the motherboard breaks, though. (Jus sayin')

However, if the screws are not tightened in a crisscross fashion, and tightened in incremental stages; the Heatsink may not be sitting flat.

Will await reply before going further. Post back in a Comment.

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=719&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36547/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8200-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.


Good luck

My core 2 duo E6550 does not work on my foxconn g41mxe motherboard


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186187

Motherboard supports Processors with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of either 800Megahertz, or 1066MHz.

1333MHz FSB support is done with OVERCLOCKING.

http://ark.intel.com/products/30783/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-E6550-%284M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB%29

Intel Core2 Duo E6550 processor has a 1333MHz FSB.

http://www.manualowl.com/m/Foxconn/G41MXE/Manual/297328

I reduced the view size to 120 percent. Go to Page 27.
Press DELete key to enter BIOS Setup.

Use Down Arrow key to highlight - Fox Central Control Unit
Press the Enter key

CPU Frequency Setting should be set to 333 (333MHz)
Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
333MHz x 4 = Approximately 1333MHz. (1332)

http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&socket=Socket%20775&model=G41MXE&cputype=Intel

Note the version of the BIOS program also.

I want to know which are the best supported intel desktop boarads in intel quad core processor.


You can visit alot of websites and webshops that can tell you more about motherboards and support with Intel Quad Core Processors. Just ask them if it is supported, most new motherboards will if they are made for Intel.

The onboard ethernet card just stopped working. There is no fix I can find. I reinstalled windows and the drivers. once you instal the driver it only will start in safe mode.


Reboot your PC and hit F10 or F2 or any key it shows on your screen and go into BIOS setup and there should have one entry you can disable the onboard ethernet card.
