Try taking out the battery on *********** board, then put it back in and try it. this should reset your bios.

also there should be a 2 prong jump block on *********** board to reset bios.

check *********** boards book for location of this pin.you will need a jumper to do this. if you have any old hd's or cd dvd drives laying around you can use one of them. the little black thing for master/slave jumping..or an old mother board.

i have like 4 of them in the bottom of my case just incase i have to reset bios the hard way.

hope this helps.

Asus p5lp-le no display


If it seems like the computer completed the boot process but the screen is blank, try the steps below.

The problem will either be the monitor or the video card inside the computer. Connect another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad and the video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor does not work then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer did not complete the boot process then try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have some channels lock in which i can't pick up. How do i unlock them?


Channels Lock? is this for the TV? this is under the Computer section so I am going to asume you are trying to watch TV from your PC and some channels are locked and you cannot watch them? if you are normally suppose to get them and you are using a tv tuner from cable (for example) you should be able to modify this in the tv tuner settings.

PCI slot / TV tuner error


i am not an expert, but have lots of experience with my own media center. by moving the tuner card you changed the address of it which if the os does not recognize new hardware, it will not install the drivers for it. i believe you will have to use the device manager to reinstall the drivers for the tuner card. also will have to redo the setup for the tuner in media center. another problem with the softare change is you have to update the security components to be able to view certain channels.

you can find the best information for all these subjects at your computer manufacturers support website and of course microsoft for the security components. good luck, it should not be too difficult to solve your delemna with a little research and searching there.

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck

I bought apci tv capture card and the manual version says 2.0 and the driver and software disc says v5.3 and whe i try to open the enltv says that the set up is incorrect


A lesson


You mean you purchased a PCI TV Capture card , not "apci" tv capture card.

Good for you ! , Television Sets are a thing of the past and it's time we moved on.

and your manual says your PCI TV capture card is version 2.0
and that your Installation CD states that it's version 5.0



1. the driver CD version of the drivers on it can be 5.0 this has nothing to do with your PCI TV capture card being 2.0 , they are totaly sepreate things.


2. when you attempt to launch the enltv program you receive the error message

"set up is incorrect"

Your PCI TV Tuner Capture Card is made by Encore.

Well your in luck !


There is excellent support for it here.

http://www.encore-usa.com/product_item.php?region=us&bid=2&pgid=17&pid=46

But I see a weakness , and a delema

The weakness is that the site may not provide you with what you really need.

and the delema is to decide what you want to do about that !

If you already have a driver loaded , and you can see that everything is ok in the device manager
meaning no yellow exclamation marks on your PCI TV Tuner device then please proceed with these steps


Since Most PCI tuner cards have less than sufficent support and may not work in all circumstance
due to OS incompatabilites. we sometimes have to take matters into our own hands.


1. Install the PCI TV Tuner into the second PCI slot and try to assign it IRQ 9
2. Load the driver if you have no IRQ conflict
3. Load a program called "MediaPortal" a third party freeware open source program designed to give you back the ability to watch your PCI tuner capture card in the event that it's Television software has failed.

Do not load media portal unless you are confident that your PCI TV Tuner Card DRIVER Installed correctly.

Do no load MediaPortal unless you have no other choice.

4. If at this point you have decided to give MediaPortal a try then download it and install it.

DO NOT install MediaPortal at this stage unless you have downloaded ALL the microsoft critical updates and service packs.



Please understand that your computer may be horribly outdated and needs all it's critical updates and service packs , and maybe even updated directx before MediaPortal can run properly


The default password for SA
is "MediaPortal" and that IS case sensitive


Thank you for using FixYa!
