It sound like windows did an update taht had something to do with your motherboard. You can view your updates by going to your "control panel" and selecting your Windows Update (icon). Right click on it and open. Click on "view update history" at the upper left part of the window, then see if any of the listed updates involved your motherbaord. If so, click on "installed updates troubleshoot..." at the top of your screen. This will show all recent updates. You can click on and uninstall the update you think is causing the problem. You can always get it back by running check for updates and reinstalling. Another option would be to do a "system restore" back to before the problem exixted.
Shut down your system normally and restart by pressing powre button on your tower. A screen will come up where you can arrow up to "start in safe mode". Once your screen has come up, it will take a couple minutes, A window will pop up about safe mode. Scroll down in window to "what is safe mode" and click on it. Another window will pop up with, scroll down to it, "start safe mode". Click on that. This will take a couple minutes. Another window will pop up about the system restore where it will ask you to start safe mode with their recommended time. There will be an option box "next". Click on that and a window will come up whrere you should be able to scroll to your update. Click on that and it will restoe to that time. You will lose any other updates done prior to that so when finished, run check updates again but, don't allow the one taht created your problem.

How to Shutdown or Turn off your Computer Properly



There's nothing wrong with powering your laptop, or desktop, down by clicking the Power button and letting it go into standby, sleep, or hibernate mode, much of the time. On your laptop, usually just tapping the Power Button will perform the same function as the following instructions.
When doing this, click on the 69966d5.jpg symbol just to the right of the Start button. This allows all open windows to be suspended properly, with current data saved. When you startup the next morning, your open programs will still be running in the background. Clicking on your logon will have your right back where you left off.
If you see the same symbol with the exclamation mark 15ca2e0.jpg, click and leave the computer alone, because it will be in the process of installing important updates before shutting down.

Nothing beats a complete "Shut Down" through the Start menu in the lower left-hand corner of your Windows screen. Mouse-over to the far right icon, and click on Shut Down in the popup window. All your open programs will be closed properly, data saved, and memory and cache cleared. This is like going to bed at night with nothing on your mind, sleeping soundly, and waking up refreshed in the morning.

Then, when the computer is powered up the next time, it will be operating at its optimum performance levels without being "bogged" down with excessive leftover garbage from previous sessions. It leaves you with a fresh start-up the next time you are ready to use your computer.

To summarize, tapping the Power button most of the time, and allowing the computer to enter sleep mode, is fine. Occasionally, do a complete Shut Down to clear everything out of memory. Your laptop/desktop will thank you...lol.

Regards, Bill

ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard gives 10-15 sec bleeps at 0135 each morning. This sudenly started to ocure 4 nights ago.


Motherboards have a "timed-wake-up" option.
You can enter BIOS SETUP, and configure the computer to wake-up at a specified time, e.g., 01:35, on specific days, e.g., "daily".

Restart your computer.
Enter BIOS SETUP
Set the computer's clock to 01:30.
Save the setting
Exit from BIOS SETUP.
Turn the computer off.
Wait 5 minutes, until the computer's clock advances from 01:30 to 01:35, and watch what happens.

In safe mode- go to event viewer, and look for the fault- it sometimes is a windows update not installing properly, or, it could be a graphics driver problem. The yellow symbol similar to a statement, could give a clue, or, other shown faulting code.
Right click computer, left click manage, and then left lick on event viewer, and let us know what it says.

D845EPI/GVSR video driver for vista


Your motherbaord uses legacy display driver, meaning Intel has stopped updating the video driver for it. What you can do is the following, it works as I have done it for many of my customers.

Open device manager>select display adapter and (right click) to choose update driver>select browse my computer for driver>click let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer> on the next window uncheck "show compatible hardware"> you will see various display drivers made by various manufacturers (select Intel)> and from the next shown list select "Intel (R) 82865G Graphic controller" and install. Windows will give a warning on its incompatibility, but its ok go ahead and install.
The above mentioned work around should work. Try it and let us know. But Windows Aero effects will not work as the display card on your motherboard does not support it.

Cannot start up my laptop since in done an update


Try booting into "Last known good configuration" it is on the same screen as Safe Mode, if that does not work, you can try to run CHKDSK /r from the windows install CD, just choose "Repair" in the option, if this does not work I suggest removing that hard drive and slaving it into another computer to get your data off and then reload Windows onto it. It is missing a .dll
