Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard won't post.

I just purchased this motherboard today. The sales rep. where i bought it claimed he was positive that the board is compatible with the Intel Pentium D915 CPU. I tried posting the board out of the case and it just doesn't post. I put the same CPU and RAM back into my old board, which works fine. This is the second time i ran into the same issue and I'm going to ask for my money back tomorrow. The reason I would like to use this board is for a replacement for my present ECS board which has an intermittent problem.

I looked up your P5S800-VM motherboard on the Asus site and it doesn?t list the Pentium D915 ?Presler? dual core processor on its list of supported CPSs. Here is the link to show to your sales rep: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5S800-VM

I flashed the bios on my Asus motherboard M2N-E, and then replaced the processor with a quad. Cleared the cmos and now the computer won't post? What do I need to do to get it up and running again?


Hi,
Try to put back the old procie, if it runs again that means the new procie is not compatible with board.
Read the manual for the compatibilty issue for your MoBo.
Tell me if it works.

Gray area. Your processor may not be compatible with the specs on the new board.

Hindsight it is always advisable to purchase processor along with your chooen motherboard, suppliers areall to keen to sell and will say "Yes" that should work? and is suitable.

Remember, a lot of sales assistants need sales and not all are professional or computer friendly.

Is there a graphics card available which is compatible with the old Asus P5GD1-FM motherboard. The Radeon X700 in place has died. The Radeon HD5450 I bought to replace it does not work at all, so back with...


Any old standard PCI graphics card will work with this board as long as you stay within the power levels your PSU can put out. You can not put a PCI-E or PCI-Express card on this board because you lack the necessary slots. Make sure you double check the interface before purchasing another graphics card.

Bought a Micron GX3 off Ebay. One month later,


NO!! That's not reasonable, and the seller knows it!! I'm an avid ebayer and if they're going to try to charge you to make it right, you should file a Paypal or Ebay Resolution claim today, or the seller will draw it out until the 60 days has passed and you'll have no recourse at all. (I assume you've already left positive feedback by now).
If this has been over 60 days, pay him the $60. You can get the labor cheaper, but not with the part included. Pay him through Paypal so you can keep the option of a new claim

Intel motherboard


Intel gives 3 years warranty with every new motherboard purchased. If you have purchased this motherboard during this 3 year period then you are eligible for a free repair or replacement.
To claim, just take your board back to where you purchased it. They can take care of the rest.
Thank you.

Compatible upgrade processor for intel pentium


The E5200 would be a nice upgrade. It retails on Newegg.com for 65-69.00 and usually has free shipping. And if you have a compatible motherboard and purchase a nice heatsink, it overclocks very nicely.

Looking for a compatible processor for this mobo


It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.

Dell Optiplex GX280 won't start. Fan sounds like a Boeing 757


If the processor is ok, you can just change the motherboard. Then look for a compatible motherboard that can accept your processor.
