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