Question about ASUS A7V600-X Barebone Kit / ATX Mid-Tower Case with 350 Watt Power Supply / Keyboard / Mouse (988835)

Cannot boot or enter setup. ASUS A7V600-X

Hi,

I was adding a new sound card to my system. My system hung. So I rebooted and went into setup and changed some IRQ settings on the PCI slots. That's all I thought I did. However the system won't reboot. It powers up, and briefly displays 256K memory, and then displays the ASUS screen. And then just sits there. If I enter I should be able to go into setup again. But all I get is 'Entering setup....' and nothing happens.

What can I do? Is there anyway to load up the default BIOS settings, or reset them with a switch on the motherboard?

Kind regards,

Ashoka

Hi,

I'm managed to fix this myself.

The system would hang at power-up, simply displaying the ASUS screen, and
I could not get into the BIOS setup at all with the usual pressing of the <DEL> key. I was completely stuck. Did this mean I needed a new motherboard?

I hoped not, so I downloaded the userguide for my particular motherboard from the ASUS US website, from another machine. Browsed through it and found where the jumpers were located on the motherboard to clear the RTC (Real Time Clock) and system settings on the CMOS chip. This meant: removing the battery on the motherboard; moving the jumpers to clear the CMOS settings; waiting a few seconds; moving the jumpers back; reconnecting the battery; rebooting. And hey presto! I could get back into the BIOS set up, where I then had to set the correct date and time, and the processor speed once more. And then a final reboot, letting it go all the way to load the OS in full.

I'm back...

Asus p5nd motherboard won't start when power button is pushed, but the motherboard light stays on..


Most probably your power supply. An SLI rig will draw a lot of power for the graphics and for a power supply in a system like this to have lasted 5 years is amazing. They don't last forever. You could buy a PSU tester (about 10 GBP) and confirm it. But if you have to buy a new one look for one that is at least 25percent more powerful than your old one and has at least a bronze efficiency rating. (silver would be better) and buy one from a known brand such as Antec, Chillmaster, or OCZ.

Just bought a nviada geforce 550 gtx for my foxcon 6100M2MA-RSH2 mother broad when i boot my computer from the card it hangs at the bios splash screen i have a 500w psu and all the conneters,can any one...


I couldn't find the 6100M2MA-RSH2, I only found a 6100M2MA-RS2H, if that is the right one, you can download the manual for it here, that may help you with this procedure. (It should tell you which key gets into BIOS setup, and where to find the option to shut off your internal graphics card)
You may have to enter your BIOS setup and disable your on-board video (there is an article that gives you a general idea of how here). You'll need to take out your new graphics card and use the built-in one to disable it. Usually, the key to get into BIOS setup is F2, F10, sometimes F12 or Delete key, or maybe Esc while the computer is booting.
Look for an option for "On-board video" or something and disable it, save your changes and exit, shut off the machine, and put your new graphics card back in.

ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 GeForce 7025 Socket AM2+ MB built system. Works great with Sata hard drive. Removed my older 500GB IDE hard drive and CDROM from old PC. When i try to put both, or either 1 into to IDE...


Try to go into the bios and set the first boot device as your sata hdd. There will be a option in boot section of the cmos setup where the hdd drive order will be mentioned. If PATA is shown first press enter in the option select SATA and press enter save and exit changes things should go on fine.


Also check your pata hdd and cdrom specific jumper setting. For more help post your HDD model and make and cdrom model and the bios type

Problem with Pundit-R and PCI graphics card


I had a similar problem when installing a GeForce 5200 256mb PCI card in my Asus Pundit-S running winxp which I overcame when I got the sequencing of installation right.

First, Physically install the card in one of the available PCI slots. Using the onboard graphics to your monitor, boot the system. Windows will detect your new card and prompt you to install. Cancel Windows installation and use the supplied Radeon install disc for driver and program installation. After that, Reboot and enter your system's BIOS. On my system, repeatedly hitting the delete key gets me there.

Now this is where it may differ. In my BIOS, I needed to select the ADVANCED Menu followed by PCI CONFIGURATION. If your BIOS does not have the ADVANCED menu, you may have to upgrade it by downloading from the Asus Global Site. That is a whole other challenge but it is possible...hehe

The two options that need to be changed in the PCI Config Menu are:
Primary VGA BIOS -> PCI VGA Card, and
Onboard VGA -> Disabled.

Save changes and exit BIOS however, on exiting, you will need to unplug the VGA/DVI cable from your onboard port and connect it to your PCI card port. My card will not display the content unless it is plugged in from initial boot so you might have to restart your computer if you are not quick enough to catch that boot cycle.

Selecting these options should avoid any onboard conflict between devices as the Pundit-R has an onboard Radeon 9100 chip. I suspect the two same-make chips is where the conflict problem lies plus you don't need to be running the onboard graphics if you have a dedicated PCI card.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.
