Hi, today i updated my mobo (p5n32-e sli) from retail to the latest (1203), using asus update from windows, which I realise was a bad move.
It updated fine then after the 1st reboot the system hangs on the first spash screen 'AI life' if I hold down delete it says entering setup and hangs forever, if I hold down tab it gets to the boot screen as far as the amount of memory (no memory test, I think). The bios is shown as the latest version. I tried unpluging all my drives, took some ram out etc but no joy. I cleared the cmos by moving the jumper, but its the same.
My pc specs are
4gb corsair pc6400 c4d 4-4-4-12 (taken out 3 for now)
Windows XP 64bit.
Please help asap as I am without a PC (im on my dads)
I update my ASUS motherboards in windows all the time with no problems. 1203 is a beta bios I am running my on it right now with no problems but you may what to go back to a older one to see it will works. If you can't do that try to get different memory and see if it will boot with that in, this motherboard has had problems with corsair memory for some reason.
I have the same problem and a similar set up.
The only things different are I have a 500gb Seagate Barracuda hdd and 4 gigs of OCZ Ram. I've tried removing ram. nothing. I've replaced the bios chip with another one that was loaded with 1203 and nothing... now I'm waiting for a chip loaded with 1103...
this is not my first time updating my bios on this board, just the first time I've ever seen a non-beta bios kill peoples computers.
I dunno dude, check out the forum on the ASUS website for your specific board. I don't have a Razor mouse for me it's really just hearsay, but if the OP has a razor mouse it might be best to try and boot without anything extra plugged in.
I have the same issue with this board. Was it ever resolved? Basically it won't get past post if any USB devices are plugged in. It'll load up window just fine with only a Ps/2 keyboard plugged in and you can plug in USB stuff after windoes has loaded but if you try to start the machine with any USB stuff plugged in it won't get past post.
What version of windows are you using? Which BIOS are you using? 1103 is the latest non-beta version of the Bios, 1203 was on their site but a lot of people were having problems with it so they took it off. There is a USB patch for XP on their site so if your using XP you might want to try that.
