I cannot get my new ASUS A8V deluxe and AMD 4800+ dual core
cpu to boot. Surely this motherboard will get up enough for me to
flash the bios ???

THanks,
Lynn

Nope didnt help. I have swapped the video board from ATI 9800 Pro
to ATI 8600 Pro. My Ram sticks (2) are Crucial 1 GB DDR 400 CL3.

I found out my BIOS is 1012 and that I need BIOS 1013. I wonder if I
have to find an old cpu in order to get the BIOS upgraded. I am getting
no video or beeps whatsoever.

Thanks,
Lynn

Are you sure the +12V 2x2 power plug is installed ?

I would have thought 1012 BIOS, since it supports a bunch
of Rev.E processors, would be good enough to get a response
from your processor.

Copied from an earlier post.

"Rename the new bios A8v.rom(it should be something like a8v1013.ami),
and copy the renamed new bios (A8v.rom) to a floppy. Then start the
computer with the floppy disk in the drive while pressing alt F2
repeatedly. This will start a bios erase/rewrite program, which
upgrades
the bios. I had the same problem and this worked perfectly."

I tried that. I get no floppy access at all (no seek). No beep.

I get the led light on the motherboard and the cpu fan turns on.

Nothing else turns on (like the keybaord led's).

This problem was fixed by putting in a AMD 3200+ cpu and upgrading
the BIOS to 1013. I put the dual core 4800+ cpu back in and all is OK
now.
