This problem could be caused by a near flat BIOS battery. Replace the BIOS battery and go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time etc.

How do you flash the BIOS


What happens when you turn the computer on?

If the bios is working enough to enable you to boot from a CD download the new bios from asus along with there AFUDOS.exe flash utility and make a bootable CD and copy both to it.

If the bios is completly none functional you should be getting this msg when you turn the computer on,
Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found

Repeat adinfinitum.
If this is the case you need download the most recent BIOS from compaq and either copy it to a bootable CD if you have this capability or buy a floppy drive for $5 and make a bootable floppy on a working computer and copy this BIOS file to it. Then rename the bios file to A8N32SLI.ROM.

You may not even need make the floppy bootable but I would just in case.

Stick the floppy in the drive turn the computer on and you will see

Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . . .
Floppy found.
Reading file "A8N32SLI.ROM" . Completed.
Start Erasing...

Please turn off your system and power on again to get system back.

and happy days will be here.

In the disk you burned, the bios can't read a zip file, the file needs to be extracted and as far as I remember you need to use a diskette instead of a cd. but I will look into it now.
Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 Bios warning

Please note, BIOS update is only recommended when experiencing technical difficulties with your system, And is not recommended to be performed regularly.

Moreover, due to the nature of BIOS update, there is certain level of dangers involved. BIOS update must be performed with extreme caution . During BIOS update process, your system must be maintained without interference or power loss to prevent unexpected damage.

In case of BIOS update failure, please follow instructions in your User's Manual for guidelines on BIOS recovery via CrashFree BIOS. In the event that BIOS recovery is not recoverable via CrashFree BIOS, please contact your place of purchase for further assistance on BIOS recovery.

You can get the bios from here
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4V8X-X

Get the 1008 version

its under Bios and 3rd entry, all os version 1008
File is in zip format, needs to be extracted.
the rom file inside needs to be placed in a diskette.
Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 Diskette or if you can get the bios to read a cd then that is fine also. Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 if the setup is looking for a file named as
P4V8X-X.rom

it may be required to rename the PV8XX08.rom to P4V8X-X.rom

But im not perfectly sure what you are trying todo or why it is asking for it. il have to look into this more. Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 As I suspected, BestDarnGood linked us the manual and the correct page about the problem. it confirms that the file has to be renamed and placed in a floppy.

Thanks BDG

Asus p4v8x-x bad bios checksum checking for floopy floppy not found checking for cd-rom start reading P4V8X-X.ROM could not find P4V8X-X.ROM


Hi, you can download the bios file here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P4V8X-X&p=1&s=15

Please select your windows version.
Select bios and click on global for download.
You have to unzip the file before you install it.

You might have to change the cmos battery out with
a new one:

ghost2233_59.jpg So the bios can remember its settings.
Thats why you get a bad bios checksum.
A reminder flashing the bios with a wrong one WILL destroy the mainboard.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure that the cd rom is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the cd drive including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or
your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd rom then plug them back in or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps

Instead of updating your bios try removing the bios battery and then wait for about 5 mins then plug it back in to reset it. Most often that fixes the problem faster and easier.
