Question about Foxconn 845GV4MR-ES Motherboard

Foxconn 845GV4MR-ES Lan refuses to work

A friend had a machine "repaired" by one of the local companies. In this case, repair seems to mean sell them a new mobo, cpu, ram, hdd - but not to install Windows.

While trying to install XP Home (this is the software they have a license for), I notice that the bios recognises the lan as a series of Docking Stations - Windows also adds new Hardware of this type.

I've tried installing PCI ethernet cards, but they also get recognised by the BIOS as docking stations - and if I try and use the appropriate ethernet driver on the "docking station", I get a blue screen.

Does anyone have any clues as to what's going on here, and how I can get the Network Adapter installed?

Have you installed the correct drivers for this mobo? You can get them here:

I've used these with XP Pro and everything works. You have to install the chipset driver before the others. Also, do you have the onboard network adapter enabled in the BIOS?

    I've just reread your post and I think I might have misunderstood the problem. Do you mean that there is a reference to docking stations in your BIOS setup? If this is the case, my first step would be to Load Default Settings in BIOS setup then, if thet didn't work, I would clear the CMOS memory. There's a jumper for this on the mobo. Alternatively (or as well) there's an option in BIOS setup to Clear Configuration Data (or something like it).

    The final, and rather ominous, possibility is that you have a faulty mobo or the wrong BIOS - but let's not go there yet! (For what it's worth, the current BIOS version on the Foxconn website is 461XP219. It works for me.)

Laptop not charging

It sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Your Asus Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue ( Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

I need the drivers to install this motherboard: GA-PCV2-CSI

Do you have the motherboard support disc? If you have it then you can use it to install drivers for your computer. Else you can download it from the official website of the motherboard. Download drivers according to the operating system you will going to use.

Hope this could help you..:-) Thanks..

Foxconn moterboard

Does the system not even start up the power supply? That most likely means you've wired up your power button incorrectly. Also it could be possible that you're grounding the motherboard to the case. Make sure it is screwed onto the case correctly.
