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 they could be 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 even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer and before you touch anything be sure to wear an earth strap hope this helps

Asus f3j bios mod for upgraded ram


Not sure what you are asking about. Asus site says the motherboard will take DDR2 533/667MHz SDRAM, 2x SO-DIMM socket expandable to 2GB
Which means DDR2 533mhz 1 gig per slot total 2gig
or DDR2 667mhz 1 gig per slot total 2 gig

To enter BIOs press F2 at boot up, but no setting should need to be changed.

They do not have a BIOs update for increasing the memory limits.
BIOs upgrades from first to current are.
BIOS 304
Update new CPU Microcode
System plays wave file and causes garbage sound.
BIOS 305
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.
Support Intel Extend ID CPU:Merom Celeron 530 CPU.
BIOS 306
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.
BIOS 307
Fix System hang at ASUS LOGO on SATA HDD with factory recovery image
Last upgrade date is 2008 7 14

Boots up crashes 3-4 times starts working then crashes after several minutes. Have replaced cpu & processor


If the CPU is working then I would put this down to either a corrupt windows installation or faulty RAM. It could also be a fault due to heat, but if you have that in check then I think it's the Windows install or RAM.
To test the Windows install, power on your PC with all hard drives disconnected, power included and if it is stable on the screen that says NTLDR is missing or insert system disk then this confirms the windows installation is corrupted.

Motherboard Problem


Hi it sounds like an operating system crash to me, before going out spending anything try entering the BIOS by hitting "delete" when logo comes up then change "boot secwence" to boot from CD first then HD second.
Next insert XP disc press F10 to save changes and exit......it will then boot from cd and you can try to repair operating system an still keep all your files.

hope this helps

you can also perform a full format in the same way :-)

Warning on post screen during boot up and ocassional blue screen


Sounds like the CPU is overclocked in your system. I would clear CMOS the try it again. The CPU is probably overclocked to far causing it to become unstable.

Cpu upgrade wont happen


Ok i checked the ASUS website and looked up the CPU compatibility list for your board here:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

But unfortunately that particular CPU doesn’t seem to be supported. Must be something to do with the technology inside the CPU or the amount of L2 cache or something like that. (it would require some rather intensive research to find out exact reason why...

And when searching for ASUS motherboards that are compatible with that CPU it comes up with this short list;

AP120-E1
AP130-E1

PSCHL009
AP140R-E1
P4RD1-MX


Did you clear the cmos when installing the new cpu before powering it up?

i know the CPU you have now runs at 400FSB and the new one runs at 800FSB But that board supports both speeds so that shouldn’t be a problem.

What type of RAM do you have ?
maybe check owners manual for memory compatibility chart for new 800FSB CPU

Have you tried the latest beta bios from ASUS site :
I can not guarantee that it will work but it is worth a try.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?model=P4S800D-X%20&f_type=34&SLanguage=en-us
NOTE: Updating the bios can be risky and should only be done to resolve compatibility issues or things like that (or to add CPU support) In the rare event of a power failure during bios update your motherboard could become permanently unusable. (Always use a brand new floppy and follow the instructions to the letter when updating system bios)

System restarts automatically


1st) I would suggest disconnect EVERYTHING from the motherboard. Keep keyboard, mouse and of cause the monitor.turn on....wait your 10-15 minutes, play with the keyboard, flutzz with the mouse..
Nothing happens,TURN OFF cpu, add ONE other device, continue doing the same thing until something happens after a device is installed, that could be your problem. 2nd) your turning on and off the power supply could cause it to crash, then THAT is your problem.too Low or too high power supply voltages causes your cpu to reset in order to protect itself {By forcing the power supply to "crase & burn" u forced the issue.

You can upgrade your bios, you just need to visit the motherboard manufacturer site where you can download the latest bios.

http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=0&model=1276&modelmenu=1

You can also try to reset the bios first, you can reset it to default settings and if that will not work then you can upgrade the bios.

and you can also check this site regarding bios upgrade

Cpu fan lo.


Replace the fan ASAP.

Looks like when the system overheated your Windows registry got corrupted. It is possible that someone who knows what they are doing can get a copy of your registry from a restore point and replace the corrupted files using a Linux live CD or BART PE CD.
