Question about ASUS MB RAMPAGE FORMULA 775 X48 RT (90-MIB3S0-G0AAY00Z) Motherboard

2 Answers

I have a Asus Rampage Formula board w/ 4gig mem, was running a BFG GTX 260 max core nvida card , win XP pro 32 bit sp4. I have had no issues for about 1yr then when the computer would run for a few hrs the video output would stop (black screen and flashing power light on monitor) It would also not display any boot info or even bios screen when rebooting only digital after fully booted. If a game was started (ie: black ops, battle field...) once it moved to game screen it would go black/flashing power light on monitor. Shift Tab would sometimes get video back. Changed to new card (MSI 560 GTX) and will play games but still drops video screen when booting warm (bios screen and post info) until fully into desk top. I have monitored the Northbridge and Southbridge temps but north is running the highest at ~134f when under load & 115f on south. Doesn't seem all that hot from what I understand but I could be wrong? Any ideas???

It actually sounds like your monitor might not be running specific resolutions correctly.
Try your system on another monitor (borrow one if you have to) to see if the monitor itself is the issue (which I believe it is).
If the monitor is the issue, repost your question as a monitor issue, specifying what make/model monitor you have.

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

Hi


Well about guaranteed your 2 gigs ram is probably DDR II ram which has maximum of four gigs with 64 bit processing and 2 with 32 bit is. So motherboard needs upgrade. 35.00 for good giabit or board with 1000 megs a sec ethernet lan. With ddrIII ram. And upgrade operating system I believe win 8 has max 16 gig ram win 7 uses 8 gis vista and longhorn 64 use 4 and xp normal edition 32 bit uses 2 max. So you about have to run win 7 or 8. Win 7 will become direct x incomparable at some point making us change to win 8. Win8 cost like 300 to 350 and tiger direct.com has good deal of the win 7 pro media center for 75 bucks. So spend 150 on good speed 8 gig ram, 125 bucks for 12 core and at 4 GHz I think. And a board for 35. Reuse all other componets. And you\'ll have a 2500 dollar computer and best on the block.

Can't detect XP discs in win 64 bit


Hello Joe, 64-bit processing is faster than 32-bit processing because the CPU is handling more bits at once, However, a 64-bit OS requires more resource than a 32-bit OS, A 64-bit OS requires that device drivers operating in kernel mode be a 64-bit drivers, These drivers must be available from the device manufacturer. An application is compiled to process 64-bit or 32-bits. A 64-bit OS can run either 64-bit applications or 32-bit applications, but 64-bit applications are faster also 64-bit applications cannot run on a 32-bit OS.
A 32-bit OS can only address up to 4 GB of memory, More than that might be on the motherboard, but the OS cannot use it, because it does not have enough memory addresses to assign to the physical memory. A 64-bit OS theoretically can address up to 1 terabyte of memory although in practice, most motherboards can only hold from 12 to 16 GB of memory.( A terabyte is roughly 1000 GB or 1 trillion bytes). If you open many applications at the same time and have high computing needs and enough hard drive space and memory, you can benefit from 64-bit computing. To get most out of it, the processor, motherboard, operating system, drivers and applications must all be 64-bit, and you should have installed the maximum amount of memory the motherboard supports.

P5PE-VM with Win7 has no display on PCI video cards-EVGA 2600 or EVGA gt 220. Both cards ran fine with Win XP. What do I need to do?


Hello here is the mainboards homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5PEVM/#download

Are you running 32 or 64 bit system ???

Make sure the video driver supports windows 7, 32 or 64 bit.

The video card can sure run fine on windows xp but not in windows 7 as it is a totaly different system.

The mainboard has a 1 x AGP 8X slot.

So now you maybe has to find a video card that supports windows 7

Try also to download a manual.

Good luck

I have an Asus M2N68AM-Plus Mobo and a Asus GeForce GTX 460 1028mg video. Onboard video works, but I cant get the board/windows7 Pro 64-bit to read the geforce gtx 460.


your motherboard is not a 64-bit board so it cannot support the windows 7 64-bit version. you should get the 32-bit version or upgrade your ram and then your windows should be able to read your onboard video.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

Cannot install the audio driver, my computer no sound


Hi nenmacil, suggest you disconnect any other sound device jacks when installing the supremeFX II software. Asus boards use auto jack sensing software.
Disconnect your other speakers. You also have the option for live chat from Asus: http://livesupport.asus.com/
Your board is very new (2008). Check with a pro from Asus.
Or call tech, M-F, 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST at: 1-812-282-2787.

Good luck nenmacil!
Thank you for using fixya.

Can I run two EVGA GeForce 260 GTS cards in crossfire on an ASUS Rampage MOBO?


This is an excellent question, basically "Can you run two Nvidia cards on a cross fire motherboard in a SLI configuration". My first thought was "No" but you should be able to still run a single Nvidia card.

From everything that I have collected the above is correct. Here is a reputable site that you can trust which has a spill on whether you can do this: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/246903-33-nvidia-graphics-card-crossfire-motherboard

OS Upgrade Issue


Stick with XP. I bought a laptop that had Vista in it, and it runs and performs more faster with Win Xp Pro. It was slower and too confusing with Vista.
