Chassis intruded fatal error - can't access bios

Hi, on installing a new pci soundcard on my friends Advent desktop, powerup fails with a 'chassis intruded - fatal error' message. The system goes through POST, validates ram, checks (and recognises) drives etc then hangs completely.  I've checked the jumper on the chassis intrusion pins and that's fine.  I've also reset the CMOS as per the manual (at least the manual for P5LD2-VM (the board actually says P5LD2 TVM SE/L but I can't find a manual for that model -as far as I can see, the layout is essentially the same).  However, none of this has any effect - the error keeps coming up and won't let me get into the BIOS (or anywhere else).  My friend got the machine second-hand (it was working), and has no mobo recovery disks or anything.  I've scoured the net for a solution, but so far, nothing I try solves the problem.  The board is running a Intel Core 2 1.GHz CPU by the way.

I'm not an expert, by  a long way, but have built a few machines, and tinkered with others and this is the first time I've hit such a seemingly impossible problem (and it had to be on someone else's machine!) Any suggestions will be gratefully received before my friend becomes my ex-friend!!

    thanks Wraithbearer - I had tried rebooting with the card removed, checked all board connections etc but still the same problem. I think I have no choice but to update the bios - as I said my board says P5LD2-TVM-SE/L, but I'm assuming/hoping that the VM-SE bios will be the correct one. I think I should be able to do it via the ASUS EZ Flash utility - I certainly hope so as all other alternatives assume being able to access DOS or Windows which, obviously, I can't do...

    ... an hour later. Having discovered that the board doesn't have a connector for a floppy drive (thus making flashing the bios impossible), on a hunch I took another look at the pins. There are three sets of pins, tho only two were originally jumpered - the top set being chassis intrusion, then cmos reset, then a set with a double gap between pins 1 and 2, like . . . that don't appear in any of the manuals for the P5 series - on the basis that there wasn't a lot to lose by this point, I found a spare jumper and closed pins 2 and 3, booted up and .... after a brief complaint about cmos settings, I was in!! I really haven't the faintest idea why this worked - those pins definitely weren't originally jumpered, and the chassis intrusion complaints began before any pins had even been looked at...

    Whatever, I'm deeply relieved - I could have just bought another board, but the humiliation......!! Thanks for your suggestions wraithbearer - they were well to the point. I only found this board in a desperate search for some ideas, but will stick around...

    regards

Hi Shanakie, did you remove the soundcard to see if it worked again without it? If not try that, if it works without it go into the bios and turn of the chasis intruded warning reboot and replace the card, if it still has trouble try it in different slots, if it hangs only in a certain slot try another PCI device in that slot eg. modem, and see if it hangs if it does its a faulty PCI slot or a cap or something to do with that particular slot has gone, if it hangs on every PCI slot and other cards work in any of them it's the card, the card may not be faulty though it may just be conflicting with something on the board you may have to mix and match cards till you find a working configuration. Failing that try updating the Bios this often fixes problems with no other solution, Goto this link

All the information you need to update the bios is on the left hand side, and from the drop down menus on the right select the socket775 series and you'll find all the software that would've been on the motherboard cd as well as the bios updates for your P5LD2 VM SE

    Thats crazy i hunted everywhere for your exact board, couldn't find it so i just assumed it must've been a factory typo, but not i'm curious to track it down and check those jumpers, I'll keep you posted, if i find anything i'll post it on here for future reference, because i'd like to know what those jumpers were, perhaps bus speed?

New CPU installed!Please enter setup to cnfigure your system Chassis intruded! Fatal Error...sytem halted


It means that the Chasis or the cabinet which holds the motherboard, CPU, GPU, etc. is open. It's a security feature offered by some OEMs where a connector found on a motherboard can detect if the chassis component has been removed or replaced. Some OEMs also offer onboard speaker or PC chassis speaker which goes off in situations like these.
This is a hardware problem, and in most of the situations, you need to put the jumper back on the motherboard with the pin labeled chassis signal and ground. Sometimes OEM offers a simple switch which is automatically armed when you close the chassis properly. So check if that's the problem you are facing.

Chassis intruded... fatal error.. system halt..


If your case is not setup for chassis intrusion, the motherboard has dropped a jumper.
The location is by the last PCI slot between the CD audio connector and the USB bus plug. (it is right next to the CLRTC jumpers)

Good luck

ASUS p4 intel motherboard giving chassis intruded. fatal error message and system would not boot unless reset again. can anybody solve this?


Hi there.
Start the PC and enter the bios using either the Esc or Del key, once in the bios set the chassis intrusion to "disabled" save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will now restart and you should be able to boot into the operating system no problem.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Chassis Intruded, Fatal Error...System Halted


you need to go into the bios of your pc.....usually pressing the delete key when you see the first logo screen after booting up....look for a section that relates to errors and what the bios is supposed to do when it encounters an error.
i.e if you see a line in the bios that says "halt on all errors" disable it and when you next boot up the bios will not stall.

Chassis Intruded, Fatal Error.....System Halted


I'm not familiar with that particulat model, but I'd guess the motherboard has a chassis switch connector, and senses the chassis be open. Could be because: - chassis open (close it), - switch defect (as a workaround, you could short-circuit it, or just unplug it - whichever solution works for you). As another workaround, you can probably disable this switch in BIOS.

Try disabling this feature in the BIOS. Here is a link to the manual.
