Question about ASUS (P4BP-MX) Motherboard

1 Answer

Firewire PCI pcb won't work

I have a computer with a P4B-MX motherboard in an HP computer. I bought a 4 port Firewire expansion board and when I try to load the 1394 driver it comes up with a "Cyclical redundancy check error - Cannot install this hardware". I put the board into another computer, which also has an Asus mobo and the same WinXP OS and drivers, and the board worked. The OS has all the latest updates installed from Microsoft. Any ideas? Thanks

Alandoni post the Model Number of the Gateway Desktop PC

I'm going to assume you are trying to install a Firewire adapter card.

They make Firewire adapter cards that fit a long white PCI slot, on the motherboard,

,and a Firewire adapter card that fits a PCI-Express x1 slot,

[NOTE* Color of connector does NOT matter. Blue, Black, Pink with Yellow polka dots............doesn't matter ]

Do I assume you have the PCI-Express x1 version, and there is no PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard?

You are also having problems opening the cover, that keeps the brackets of add-on expansion cards in place.

How about posting the Model Number of the Gateway Desktop PC?
This is found on the back of the desktop computer, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

I will look to see how to open that cover, and what expansion slots you have on your motherboard. Then post back in a Comment.


I chipped my motherboard and obviously it won't work now.

I'm the kinda guy that would just solder a jumper wire across.

(Your indication was a 5mm strip of circuit trace, that was gone, right?)

I wouldn't use these ports in the I/O area anyway.
Mouse uses a USB port.
Keyboard uses a USB port.

Printer/Scanner/ All-in-one uses a USB port
Monitor is connected to a graphics card in the PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.
Don't need that blue VGA port.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

    How to connect pwrswitch, pwrLED, IDE-LED, reset,

    you will need a magnifying glass but theres a row of pins that are there to connect the power /all switches near one corner of the board and won;t have slots for all the lights you want to hook up ! just the function switches only!

    I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

    Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

    If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...
