Question about ASUS P5RD1-VM Motherboard
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 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 http://support.asus.com/troubleshooting/troubleshooting.aspx?SLanguage=en-us hopefully this will help :)
