ASUS P5Q3 LGA 775 Intel P45 Doesnt Acess HD, CDroms or Floppy Drive Tags: Motherboards Asus Floppy Disk Intel Last response: October 18, 2009 1:16 PM in Motherboards Share Sands December 6, 2008 2:56:45 AM I am having boot issues with a new ASUS P5Q3 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard. Using G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ. It sees the Hard drive in BIOS but will not access it or the CDrom or even the floppy. I cant load an Operating System. What shall I try? Or should I return the board to Newegg? Is it the RAM? I am not using the orange or white Sata ports. Any Help will be greatly appreciated!

Sands December 6, 2008 6:50:22 PM Hi ghislaing , I have changed them in the BIOS to try and boot from different devices. I tried to boot from a CDROM First as I have bootable Operating system disks for XP. That didn't work. So I connected a Floppy drive and changed the boot first to the Floppy. I have floppy to start the loading process for Windows XP. That didn't work either. In the BIOS boot screen they are shown. In the BIOS Specifications screen they are shown. But I cannot get one top spin up! Do I need to use the Supplied ASUS CDrom first to load anything? I have tried with just one 2GB Stick in various slots as well as trying different SATA slots for the CDROm. No luck! I am running a 450w PS and only one PCIe Card . Its a Nvidia GTS8600. Could it be power related? GhislainG a c 206 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS a b å Intel December 6, 2008 8:32:57 PM It shouldn't be power related. You could have an incorrect setting or the motherboard is defective. Do you have a non-bootable USB stick or external drive connected? Edit: Have tried pressing F8 at POST to select a boot device from the menu?
