I have some problem with my newly installed 2.6c. When I boot my pc after shutdown, my harddisk led lights but the bios doesn't boot.But after I use reset button, it boots fine.
Then sometimes,inbetween programs,there seems to be little activity on the task manager cpu performance,but my system lags about 2secs to respond.(I have my norton and dc++ running in background),but I had this running while having my cel2.4.Back then I can understand the delay, but why now.
The only good thing is that,my temp is a good 10deg lesser than my cel.
The other thing is I set my cpu volt to 1.528v in bios, but CPUIZ shows it as 1.6v.How can a manual volt given by me overridden?
And the page faults seem high for my dc++,could someone tell me what page fault purpose is?
Should I clean install my os?
Thanks for the advice
Is that the straight P4S800? If it is, you dont have dual channel, so that could be part of the lag.
Are you using a front usb port? They cause problems with the south bridge, so are a bad idea.
Looks like you need to replace your bios. Asus has been having problems with bios chips for a while now. If you recently updated it, reset your bios, as failing to do that will result in boot problems.
No, you may not need to go back to the old bios. When you update your bios, you have to shut down, when it finishes, and restart, going into the bios. You then just click to go to default settings and save. Then go into the bios again, to set it up the way you like. If you dont do that, it is trying to boot to the old bios, but cant find it.
