Question about ASUS P5RD1-VM Motherboard

2 Answers

Problem with start up

I have installed my ASUS P5RD1-VM with 380 watt power supply 256mb graphics card p4 3.4 ghz cpu and about a gig of RAM. Everything works just fine untill the black and white window pops up that says windows had trouble starting please select your option. I have gone to the bios and set the boot to both the HD and the CD and still brings up the windows did not start properly thing. I have windows vista home premium on the HD and have pressed "del" and configured the BIOS and all the other stuff but it still says it didnt start properly and just restarts the . I have come up with several facts that my HD may be dead. The only problem that concerns me is this RAID BIOS thing that comes up and it shows this stuff on top then Uli RAID BOIS V1.13 bunch of copyright crud Identifying IDE Drives... Channel master 0: NONE... Channel master 1: NONE... Channel master 2: NONE... Channel master 3: NONE... Press Crtl-4 for Uli RAID BIOS Setup Utility I have no idea what this means and have never seen it before but I just thought i might include it. I also pressed crtl-4 but it wont let me do anything in the setup so I just exit it. The motherboard came with a disk and it boots with the disk but it keeps wanting me to move files to a floppy drive which i dont have, it also gives me an option for a command prompt but I dont know what to do with it. If someone would PLEASE help me out it would meen so much to me. I have a computer teacher at my school who would also help me out but i just happend to run into this website. Thanks for the help

    I tried the HD and it didnt work, I took out everything except for the HD, CD drive, CPU, and RAM and it still different work. IT may be something on the HD cause I swaped out the whole motherboard and graphics card so maybe I just need to wipe my HD.

I have different board just got recently and was just out of the blue same issue I'm having. Was board/chip combo I purchased and was running beautifully for first month then this. I have an rma for the board but that's pain. What I noticed with my situation is that if the comp. shutdown for like 10min. all my ide drives will post but that's not right. I'd for whatever reason been thinking maybe the boards chipset got lil fried but I'm going to take the advice hear into consideration as I'd rather not have to tear this rigg down for rma if is not nessacary. Question though could that possibly be the cause my thoughts of chipset issue? In that respect the orig. posty have you attempted oc's? If so I'd sooner be inclined to believe is chipset related where my rig ran like dream for month, this issue started to arrise after I went back to xp and twig'd around with some oc settings.

Try setting the boot in the bios to only hdd(on all options if it prompts you to add a secondary) - i had a similar problem with an older asus board and this solved it. Also had a couple of problems that sound like they could be from the same root that were an issue with the memory or a bios clash with the video/graphics card. Try and get into the bios setup before it starts to initiate windows - usually the "del" key but it should tell you on startup if you watch carefully - i use an almost identical motherboard with similar peripherals and have had no problem when it was all set up, but i remember setting up being a bit complicated, but not exactly how. check this site - is avout problem entering windows - you know the symptoms better than me hopefully this will help :)

Motherboard ASUS P5RD1-VM ram problem

More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.

Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...

Upgrade P5RD1-VM motherboard to the gaming PC

Your pc is not for gaming right now because you are using Intel Pentuim 4 Mother board and CPU. Amd Athlon is best for gaming. I have a AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 with 4gb Ram and Nvidia 6800 256mb OC. to upgrade your computer to a gaming pc. you will need to switch your motherboard and cpu for best performance on games. in order to do that, you might need a different case for your new motherboard. because the one you have might not be right for the AMD Athlon motherboard unless you have a custom made computer. other than that everything is set for you. if you have less than 1gb ram you might want to add more. because the games they are coming with right now is 1gb minimum or required.

i hope that answers your question.
Thank You
