Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an ASUS P5GLV-MX ACPI- computer. when I turn on my computer,sometimes it will boot up and sometimes it will not. it will just freeze up and sometimes it will say fan error or sometimes it will ask me to set defaults by pressing f2 or run setup by pressing f1. then sometimes it will freeze up when i try and set the time in the setup and i will have to power it off and then again it will freeze up. can you tell me what that sounds like the problem is. thanks..

Sounds like a RAM issue, or failing motherboard.
However, first thing I'd do is boot into the bios and set the bios to "defaults" or "optimum defaults" or whatever safe-defaults option there is (might be in the last tab/menu/page where you exit or save). Sometimes we inadvertently make a change in the bios which causes issues like this, and resetting things to "stock" settings will fix this.

The CHEAPEST and first thing after that I'd do is replace that bios battery (Cr2032 as I recall).

Then I'd download and reinstall the Bios, if the problem persists.

This is often what happens when small things begin to fail on a motherboard. It could be the battery, or a small regulator circuit or diode for timing or RAM or bios functions. I've got some older machines that do this everytime I shut them off. I've replaced the bios and battery and that fixed it many times.

The troubleshooting can be too tedious, even with newer motherboards and gear. If you're set on continuing and these things don't fix it, pull EVERYTHING off the motherboard except the cpu/heatsink fan and one stick of RAM (no optical drives, no hard drives, no peripheral PCI cards). If that doesn't fix it, then change the PSU or swap it out to make sure you're not dealing with an inadequate power supply to the motherboard (faulty PSU's cause all kinds of odd problems to computers).

No luck, replace the motherboard.

Hello here is the homepage:

Please select your windows system.

Open the bios folder, and click on global for download.

The file has to be unziped.

You also need the asus update utility:

With this you can update the bios, while windows is running
You just have to select the bios file, you have downloaded.

But you have to setup the bios, when the job is done.

Good luck

Can't boot

i should have thank u, if u add some more details in ur query, anyway check the following :
1. check if ur power cable is properly connected and free from damage or broken
2. did u see any blinking indicators on ur front panel
3. open the cabinet and look if the fans are spining
4. did u hear any beeps during (POST) startup
***** if ur answer to the above is YES, then
remove all the power connectors (outside and inside) , all the add on cards, RAM sticks, (and also the processor if u have a pair of smart hand), carefully clean and blow out dusts, and reinsert all of them to thier respective places, and try again.
If u find all these solutions useless, ur processor or RAM or mainboard might defective.

Asus k8s mx mother board problem

To get rid of this message at boot you must turn off the Chassis Intrusion detector feature. To do this you must restart the computer, as it boots press DEL to enter BIOS.
Under the SECURITY tab in BIOS select CHASSIS INTRUSION and select DISABLE.
Then select EXIT and SAVE CHANGES and OK to reboot the system.
