    Sometimes, the BIOS isn't able to determine the correct FSB from the CPU, so
    it sets everything on the lowest possible.

    Enter the setup and change it (under advanced? ) i.e. there are 2 - 4
    values for CPU speed or something. Once correctly set it should work fine.

    Two places to look - the download page, and the cpusupport page:

    (Click the BIOS button, then click "More" next to each release)
    http://www.asus.com.tw/support/download/item.aspx?ModelName=P4P800%20SE&Type=All

    (Enter P4P800 and select from the returned menu)
    http://www.asus.com.tw/support/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx

    I notice that the 1006 BIOS says it "supports new CPUs", but
    the cpusupport page doesn't show any processors as needing 1006.

    I would try flashing a newer BIOS (or post and tell us what BIOS
    you are currently using). There is even a beta BIOS, if you
    want to try that.

    It would also help if you mentioned the type of processor. The package
    the processor came in, has an SSPEC (SLxxx) code on it, and a
    longer order number. They can be looked up on processorfinder.intel.com
    .. If you post again, give details like that, as if you are using
    a very recent processor, it just might be a lack of proper support
    in the BIOS.

    For example, some Prescott processors can be run at the wrong speed
    by the BIOS (2.8GHz, no matter what speed it says on the package),
    and this is due to a piece of code missing from the BIOS, to handle
    the power configuration for the board. (The Platform Requirement Bit
    or PRB.)

    The cpusupport page also says a 3.4E Prescott can only be used in
    a rev2 board, so that is also a possible reason for the strange
    behavior. Telling us the exact processor type helps, but in this
    case, flashing the BIOS is probably the only option you haven't
    tried.

    HTH,
    Paul

    I encountered the same problem

    I just assembled a new computer using
    1) P4P800SE Motherboard, AMI BIOS Ver. 1.007 (latest)
    2) Intel Pentium4 3.0E (Prescot)
    3) 1x512 Apacer PC3200 memory
    4) 1 IDE drive (Quantum), 1 SATA drive (WDC), 1 CDROM (SONY)
    5) WinXP Pro SP2
    All bios settings (except boot seguence etc) are default. Everytime I
    boot I get the
    following boot screen from the BIOS:

    " AMERICAN
    MEGATRENDS

    DDR Frequency 400 MHz. Single-Channel or Virtual Single-Channel
    Checking NVRAM... 512 MB OK

    Auto-Detecting Pri Master.....IDE HardDisk
    Auto-Detecting Sec. Master....ATAPI CD-ROM
    Auto-Detecting 3rd Master.....IDE HardDisk
    Pri Master: QUANTUM FIREBAL LCT1507 A01.0F00
    Ultra DMA Mode-4 S.M.A.R.T Capable & Status OK
    Sec Master: SONY CDU4811 PY08
    Ultra DMA Mode-2
    3rd Master: WDC WD360GD-00FNA0 3506K35
    Ultra DMA Mode-5 S.M.A.R.T Capable & Status OK
    Auto-detecting USB Mass Storage Devices
    00 USB mass storage devices found & configured
    New CPU Installed! Please enter Setup to configure your system
    Press F1 to Run Setup
    Pess F2 to load default values & continue."

    This screen appear again after I press F1, configure and exit option
    'Exit & Save Changes'.
    Checked and confirmed that the changes has been saved but screen
    appear again on reboot.
    However if I press exit option 'Exit & Discard Changes', it will then
    reboot correctly i.e to the boot device as specified in the boot
    sequence and WinXP Pro runs normal.

    I have done the following but results negative

    1) Clear CMOS memory by removing onboard battery and moving jumper
    from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for over 5 mins and move jumper back to pins
    1-2.Replace battery
    2) Checked and confirmed battery is OK i.e 3.0V off and on the board.
    3) Remove all devices (Drives, CDROM) except Moinitor, Mouse &
    Keyboard
    4) Reflash BIOS to the lastest Version.1.007 using DOS command AFUDOS
    as well as ASUS EZ Flash.
    5) MemTest the 512MB DDR for over 8 hrs with zero error.

    What else do you recommend I do to fix the problem of recurrence boot
    screen appearing so it will boot into WinXP on startup or reboot on
    BIOS changes save?

    TIA
  4. I have my p4p800 SE (550ATX Power Supply,1gb memory,258 Video card, and 3.2 processor)...

    The problem is.. when i open the CPU the mobo is working...
