Last 3 months I send my Asus P4P8X to claim warranty and I get this mb
back 2 months ago.
When I took this mb back, I boot the system few times (totally no
power on board). I found that my mb display few sentence inside the
booting screen. something like

cmos setting wrong
time/date not set
F1 to.....
F2 to.....

I think this problem maybe due to cmos battery. I didn’t check it
anymore because don’t have battery at that time.
Now I replace battery and find out......the result still the
same->cmos setting wrong.

I already try to clear cmos, update bios, unplug my new added memory
module. Anyone can suggest me what things can I do?

I hope you didn't try to "Clear CMOS" just removing the memory.
This procedure is described on the manual and is done by a jumper on the
mobo.
Clear the CMOS properly, that should force you to go to the BIOS and allow
to load the minimal/optimal setup values.
Then the mobo must start properly, without complains.

Ya...That what i mean here. I set the jumper to clear cmos
memory...all load to default. I set time/date, then I restart again.
It’s so weird, sometimes cmos setting wrong & date/time not set screen
still come out and sometimes not. Too weird. Just like sometimes the
cmos memory corrupt and sometimes not!!

When you move the jumper. You have switched the machine _physically_ off
at the wall I hope. On some boards, moving the jumper, while mains power
is still attached can damage the circuitry. The machine must be properly
'unpowered' when the jumper is moved. The normal 'software' switched off
mode, is not suitable...
