New Asus v60 cpu cooler install help

Q: New Asus v60 cpu cooler install help

Ok so I installed a new Asus v60 cpu cooler on my system today, and after I installed the cooler my internet and audio aren't working. And also barely any of my service can be started. Is there something I could've done wrong? The cooler seems to be installed fine.

Preferred Solution: New Asus v60 cpu cooler install help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Quite possibly. Did you 'knock or clunk' against anything during installation?

How did you install the cooler? ie remove the mobo from the case or attach the backplate through the cutout (if the case has one)

If removed from the case, what surface did you put the mobo on? ie Anything that could cause static etc

How tight did you attach the cooler?

From the symptoms, worst case scenario it sounds like you may have damaged/shorted the board.

Hopeful case scenario, the cooler isn't actually installed correctly and just needs to be re-seated and any aberrations are temporary with no permanent damage.

Does the BIOS have any temp monitoring? If so what are the temps like?

i have a i5-750 o/c to 3.7ghz, which has been running pretty cool until i started playing DA:O, which pushed core temps to arouns 80! i have a smallish case, and memory close to the sides of the CPU, because of the design of the P7H57D-V EVO, and was wandering if anyone knows any effective, cheapish, CPU coolers small enough to fit in this confined space. thanks

Hey guys,

I just got an aftermarket northbridge cooler, and when I went to take out the stock northbridge cooler, I discovered it was connected to this other heatsink which, according to Google, cools the MOSFETs which controls voltage or something P). Is there a chance I can just take it out and leave it bare, like the other MOSFETs above the CPU socket? Here are the relevant details:

Asus P5Q-Pro
Core 2 Quad 8200 OC @ 3GHz (not standard voltage)

I know, I know, I should have researched this before buying....

You shouldn't run it without the mosfet cooler since your overclocking, you could just buy a separate mosfet cooler, like these

ASUS "A7N8X-E Deluxe" nForce2 Ultra 400 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket A CPU AMD XP Barton 3000+

80 gig HDD
1024 megs of Crucial 64X64 memory
500Watt Power Supply
I received these two items free when ordering products and am not sure if they are any good or worth using.
I tried to register my MOBO on the ASUS website this morning however they keep saying that it's not the right serial number. I checked the outside of the box, the mobo itself and the packing slip from New Egg.com where I paid for a new one not a used one. Also there were 5 things missing from the box. I called New Egg and they promised to send me another box of all the things that come with this mobo. Up until now I have been building a lot cheaper computers and the AUSU has a lot more parts so I was not sure what was missing just that the items and the number I was supposed to have didn't add up.
Also is the thermal gel or the pads better for the CPUs/Heat Sink/Fans?
I know this is a lot to deal with but I respect all of your advice.
Thanks, Jac

A:ASUS MOBO and CPU Memory cooler help needed please

Well I can't make out your pictures but it won't hurt to use coolers for the RAM or chipset. The board alreadt has a heatsink on the Northbridge but you could put the other one on the southbridge. If you plan to overclcok then this help disipate any additional heat thats generated.

I personally like thermal paste over pads and I think they do a better job at transfering heat.

Hi, anyone knows wether a 120 MM CPU Cooler will phyiscally fit in a M92p Tower case? The cooler is 158 mm high in total. I think the Thinkcentre case is 175 MM wide. But You also have to consider that there is a Motherboard and CPU inbetween. WIll that fit or do I have to go for a smaller 92MM Cooler? Anyone tried this before?

Hello all, new to this forum. I bought a Cooler Master chipset cooler for my Asus P4P800-E Deluxe. I was checking my GPU fan when I touched the cooler and it was hot, I mean HOOOTTT, like cant touch it for more than a second hot.

The fan is spinning the 5K revs it runs in but its super hot anyway. I gave my stock cooler away and this is what I have. The MB temperature is normal, 37c and cpu 32c fanless at idle. I dont know where that MB sensor is located but the chipset must be over 40c at least.

Whats the best chipset cooler out there. My MB has an Intel 845 chipset. (i need an upgrade!)

My Antec P180 (provides great ventilation with 4 120mm fans) case is sitting standing up like its meant to be and I was reading in another forum that some heatpipes dont like to be sideways, could this be the case?

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

I upgraded my GPU recently and noticed that my CPU fan was making more noise than I remembered - sort of a droning noise.  I checked my CPU temps and discovered that, at idle, the CPU was hitting 38-42C.
I decided to upgrade my cooling.  The main limitation (besides the fact that Dell has a non-standard CPU backplate setup) is the somewhat narrow case on the XPS 8900 doesn't allow installation of most of the inexpensive high-performance coolers because they are too tall by 1/2" - 3/4".  Then I found the Cyrorig H7, which has three heat pipes, a huge heatsink, and 120mm fan all in a package that is "only" 145mm high - just short enough to fit in the case.  I installed it yesterday and it works GREAT.  Very happy with it, initially at least.
I also swapped out the stock Sunon case fan for a Cooler Master Blade Master 92mm fan, which is quieter but similar CFM specs.
Overall the computer is now quieter at 100% load than it was at idle before.  And my CPU temps have dropped by 15 degrees C.  Great upgrade.  I made a video on how I did it here:
...and here are a couple of pics:

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

I recently attempted to reboot/restore my laptop using three discs I created after purchasing the pc about three years ago. The process appears run correctly, but after the third disk is complete and installation is at 100%, the disk ejects and pc resarts. When the pc restarts it starts with a boot screen indicating I need to install my windows 7 installation disk. I tried this multiple times with the same results.

I contacted ASUS and they advised my disks I made could be the problem. I ordered new recovery disks from them, 64bit windows 7. I received two recovery disks.

When I booted my pc using my newly purchased disk, the computer starts with a loading screen, with a white bar going across the bottom of a black screen. After this process is complete the windows logo loads. After this there is a grey screen with a cursor and a loading wheel next to the cursor. After about three seconds on the screen the pc restarts and the process starts over again. I have tried this multiple times and appears to be in a continuous loop.

Any ideas how I can solve this problem?

HI all
hoping for some answers.

Tried loading a clean install on my system. Asus p5n-d mobo e8400 pro geforce 9800gtx+ 1 x ide with xp and 1 x sata with xp

Installed a new second Sata looking to get rid of the ide drive after install
everything disconnected except the new sata and a sata optical

Install hangs doesn't even get started many attempts.

Booted up existing xp on the existing sata drive and inserted windows 7 install disk. This caused the system to completly freeze no mouse movement nothing.

Booted up system with xp on old ide drive and inserted windows 7 install and it worked!

Had the install load windows 7 on the new sata drive.

All is ok but to load windows 7 now i have to boot via the old ide drive.

booting up from the new sata drive fails. so obviously can't get rid of old ide drive now.

So any ideas as to why the above has happened??(am suspecting sata driver issues)

And also is there a workaround to do a clean install direct to my new sata drive?

Thx in advance

I am sure there is a simple answer to this but I am not finding it in the manual or ASUS forum search (I've post on those forums as well but have struck on a reply so far).

After building a new PC (Vista 64, I7 920, ASUS P6T) it booted and I installed Windows without an issue. I then ran the install for the motherboard drivers.

When I restarted after installing the drivers, its posts, I can get into the BIOS but if I let it boot after that it gets stuck on a DOS screen called "Welcome to ASUS Motherboard Make A Disk for DOS Menu." After that it lists a series of chipset drivers. Selecting any one of them prompts to put a diskette in drive A.

One, I don't have Drive A or a floppy drive much list a diskette.

Is there are way to skip this menu? I honestly don't want or need a boot disk.

Your questions seems to be in the opposite order I'd expect. First, you'll want to create a disc from the following tutorial.

Then, your should see a boot section in the BIOS that explains or lets you set the option to boot from this DVD. Once it boots, you'll be able to perform a clean install.

Here's the quick rundown:

This laptop is my sons homeschooling laptop. It has windows 8 on it. It quit booting into the OS a while back. It just tries to load and gets stuck trying to load the OS then loops itself. I tried reinstalling windows and every time it loads the install disc it takes forever to load the next page. Finally I get it to start installing and it gives me an error (will post the error later) and never gets past 0%. I thought perhaps the hard drive, but I ran a test and it came out fine. I deleted all partitions and formatted and it still will not install. I tried Ubuntu just to see if it was the disc I was using... Same thing, freezes as soon as it tries to install. Memtest shows the RAM is good. I did a stress test and it said the motherboard failed, BUT I was able to boot to a disc, so I feel like it was a false negative.


I know, I'm leaving out a lot of info, but I'm in my car about to go into work right now, so I will post the reat of the information about it later when I get home.

Hi. So, I am helping someone to reinstall windows 8 on an asus s56c laptop. All partitions has been deleted prior to me taking over, due to a failed downgrade to windows 7. I was asked to "fix" it, and reinstall windows 8.

The laptop has a 24Gb SSD plus a 450Gb regular mechanic harddrive. 24Gb is too small to use as operating drive, so I assume it has been used to cache the OS. Anyways, I can?t for my live figure out how to setup all as it were from the start. I tried installing the OS to the ssd, but after windows update and stuff there is 100Mb free, no good. So I figure the OS has to go on the mechanical drive, and setup the SSD as cache, but here?s the next problem - bios has no option to set SATA as raid, which I read is required for ssd caching.
Does anyone know how to make use of the SSD for the OS? Would installing the OS on the SSD and use windows storage space work?

Note. According to specifications for the Asus S56C it comes with the SSD as a caching drive, however I am clueless as to how to set it up since the BIOS has no RAID option.

A:Install windows 8 - Asus S56C

I would say your assumptions about the normal configuration are correct. The Intel Smart Response is normally what is the small SSD is used for, but I suppose the Rapid Response may be involved and might be turned on or off in the bios.

But assuming you need the RAID, there is a SATA configuration option on the Bios Advanced tab. Is this where you are not finding a RAID alternative? What does it show as possible configurations.

There is also a SATA I/O security option, which seems to allow for locking the device. I have not seen that before, so have you checked to make sure it is unlocked?

I ran an Asus Motherboard in that configuration for a short time. Installed using the UEFI configuration and after the main drive was set up, then turned on acceleration using the small drive. But RAID does have to be available for this operation.

I bought my netbook before the release of windows 7. If I upgrade to 2gb of RAM can I install Windows 7. I have a portable dvd drive to do so.

A:Can I install Windows 7 on my Asus Eee PC 1005ha?

Yes you can. I have a 1005HA and I upgraded to 2GB or RAM just as you are suggesting. I then installed Windows 7 Ultimate and it runs like a charm and has done for several months now. The WEI rating is just high enough to enable all the Aero features of Win7 and as long as you don't bloat it too much, there's no lag at all.

There was a comparison done with this laptop running XP and Win7 and I think the conclusion was that there is very little difference in performance between the two.

This is a direct quote from the review: "Legit Bottom Line: Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system can and will be run on netbooks without a significant performance difference in most areas when compared to Windows XP. Consumers will be able to enjoy the enhancements had since 2002 without fear of turning their netbook into a clunker!"

First time poster so hello to all.

Firstly, the spec of the system I am building:

The aforementioned A7N8X-VM/400
Athlon XP2800
2 x Crucial 512 PC2700 Unbuffered
Western Digital Caviar 200gb
NEC 16x DVD writer
Soundblaster Audigy 2 LS
Haupagge PVR-250

Everything is installed and the Hard Drive and DVD Drvies display under the bios as Primary and Secondary master respectively. The memory check succeeds, showing the right amount of memory and 333mhz and the CPU is correctly detected. However, it will not boot at all. I have tried several different floppy boot disks and one bootable CD with varying boot device orders, and have tried to boot with QuickBoot turned off in the bios. When I try to boot, I get a random stream of characters accompanied by constant short beeps.

Any ideas?

Did you DISable onboard graphics and forgot to put in an AGP card?
Or set AGP first instead of onboard VGA in BIOS?

First, hello to everybody.

I would like to explain my problem :

I made a hardware upgrade of my PC with a ASUS P8P67 LE, I still use my 2 original disks ( in IDE mode ) but I have made a format of the C: because my pc was running a xp home edition OEM version and I will now install a XP professional sp3.

With this version the installation will not succeed, always in the "installing device" the programme will block and finally make a power-off of the pc of I will receive a blue screen asking not to do caching or shadowing of the bios or ask upgrade by asus. on the blue screen there is : driver-irq-not-less-or-equal and usbehci-sys.

The Old xp home edition will well install but that version will no more work after 30 days so it's no advance.

Thanks for your help.

I hope I have give a minimum of information.


A:Unable to install XP on new asus P8P67LE

This is either caused by a scratched CD or bad RAM. You can create a new XP CD using nLIte
Also download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature and burn the Image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the tests with one stick of RAM in at a time for at least 7 passes. If you get any errors that stick is bad.

I am having an issue installing RTM Vista on my 3200 Athlon system.

My MB is an ASUS A8N-SLI.
2 WD Raptors RAID 0 for Primary.
1 300 gig SATA3 drive - non raid.
When I boot off the DVD I get into the setup screen. My drives show up fine, and I was even able to format my RAID drives.

I go to install, and it sits at Copying Files for about 3 seconds at 0% and then immediately hits 100% and goes to Extracting files. That sits there for a few minutes and then errors out with something akin to cannot read from media.

At first I thought I had an array issue where it wasn't able to copy files to the drives, but now I am wondering if its an DVD player issue. I have tried two different DVD players with the same result. I have tried 3 sets of Vista media, so I am ruling out a media issue.

I am not sure when Vista loads a DVD driver, and I wonder if it loads a different version of it before the copy. Obviously it can read it from boot up and enough to load the setup program with the generic driver.

Anyone seen anything similar or have any ideas?

Hey all, I will be grateful if you help me with this issue...
I have a problem with the official Asus touchpad gesture sofware on my laptop Asus N56VB running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit, it won't be installed.
Detailed explanation: I can't install the "Asus Smart Gesture" software, it stucks nearly finishing the installation and a cmd window appears saying "press a key to continue", then I press any key and the following error appears: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.", then I press OK and the installer reverts the whole installation. I need to mention that I had Asus Smart Gesture installed before (some months ago) and it was working fine, then one day it stopped working properly and I decided to reinstall it, but it won't install anymore.

Stuff I tried:
-Running the setup as Administrator.
-Cleaning temp files, trash files and other.
-Register and unregister the Windows Installer by typing "msiexec /unregister" and then "msiexec /regserver" in start menu.
-Microsoft Fix it (software by Microsoft that fix problems that programs cannot be installed or uninstalled)
-Uninstalling the original mouse driver (but it reinstalls automatically after every reboot)
-Cleaning the Windows registry with CCleaner/TuneUp and manually too by deleting all entries referred to the Asus Smart Gestu... Read more

Okay for some reason when im installing windows It gets past the first part fine and then says something like " In 15 seconds computer will reboot and continue the installation" So when it reboots it stays on the ASUS logo screen for like 30 seconds and then it just has a blinking tiny line in the top left corner like this
" _ " and its blinking...Can it be because im using a dell hard drive from my other computer?

A:Can't install windows 7 on new asus laptop

A new laptop will have UEFI BIOS if so you'll need to follow the steps in UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums, and more special steps if you're using USB installer in Option One here: UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows.

If this still fails even when booting the installer as a UEFI device and deleting all partitions first, or shrinking C to create a new partition if you want to dual boot with the OS on there, then check the BIOS settings for Secure Boot which must be disabled, any UEFI or CSM which may need enabling, and Legacy BIOS or Boot which may need disabling. Post back a camera snap of all choices if you're unsure.

If this becomes too much to bother with any longer then you can also Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 which always works.

Hello everyone,

I just reinstalled my windows 8.1 pro because of usb driver corruption that occurred due to windows update driver update.

So i basically installed all my drivers using DRP(Driver Pack Solution) and all went well.

Then I wanted to install Asus Utilities like EZupdate,Aisuite,usb charger but none of their setup works .

Whenever I click on setup it starts some asus com services but after that nothing happens no setup screen is popping up it just quits.

And I am having problem only installing Asus Software other software are installing fine.

My pc specs are as follows:

1)Intel 4670 K
2)Asus Sabertooth Z87
3)12 GB DDR 3 ram
4)Windows 8.1 Pro X64

I already tried enabling and disabling UAC and smart-screen but that didn't affect the setup.exe.

I tried running all exe as admin that also didn't help.

There is no unblock button for the setup so it should work as normal.

I even re-downloaded the asus tools from their website still the setup wont launch.

I am using Bit-Defender Total security but i even paused protection and tried still the asussetup.exe nothing happens when i click it except starting some Asus service in task manager.

I tried some solution from asus forums running AI suite cleaner in safemode and re-try installation but still nothing happens when i click on asussetup.exe.

So I would like to know if any of you had similar problem or know any different solutions

Thank you for your time .

A:Unable to install Asus AI suite 3

We have similar systems. Mine is:

1) Intel 4670
2) Asus Gryphon Z87
3) 16 GB DDR 3 ram
4) Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Media Center

No USB problems due to Windows Update.

No problems installing AI Suite III, though I only install Thermal Radar as the rest of it seems unnecessary at best. Thermal Radar OTOH provides excellent fan control and is very much worth using if you value silent computing.

No idea what "Driver Pack Solution" is or why you used it. While I've never heard of it nor have any idea what it is, I will nevertheless assert that it's bogus. At best, it's completely unnecessary and can add no value whatsoever. At best. More than likely, it's actively harmful. I don't care enough to find out, because it's completely unnecessary and can add no value whatsoever. At best. Software like that is not worth one millisecond of consideration.

Especially since you've just reinstalled, I would start over and reinstall Windows again from scratch. Then I would get the latest drivers directly from Intel and whoever else makes your hardware. The drivers on the Asus site are by and large outdated, but they will give you an idea of what all you need. I would not use "Driver Pack Solution" or any other garbage like that. I would not install Bit Defender. In fact, I would turn off Windows Defender's real-time protection, but then I've never had any sort of malware in 30 years of using PCs, aside from, ironically, A/V software whose real-time side-effects rise to...

my A7N8X-VM asus motherboard will not let me install any operating system ive tried different harddrives and it still wont work.

it was working fine then one day out of the blue when i turned the system on it said 'boot error enter system disk'

I formated the drive tried to install windows xp and after the initial setup and format it reboots strait back to the same screen instead of goin on to windows install.

i tried 98 it wont format any of the harddrives ive tried '6' of them.
its drivin me insane :knock: please help

A:A7N8X-VM asus motherboard cant install any OS tried different hd's

Have the drives been showing up in the BIOS recognized correctly? Have you tried using boot disks? Are you installing XP Pro or Home? How are you formatting the drives? Are you doing a quicky, or did you do a full wipe (zero fill)? It sounds like you have a boot sector virus or something. I would reflash the BIOS. Then set it to fail safe defaults.

Is there anyone out there that can help me install my Asus wireless N53 adapter?

When I plug in the adapter into the USB port on my desktop I get the following pop up:

Found New Harware - 802.11 n WLAN
If you have the disc that came with your device insert it now...I did not get a disc when I purchased this adapter.

So it has an option to select I don't have the disc. Show me other options. However, When I select this option I receive an error message Windows couldn't find driver software for your device.

Plz someone help, I've been sitting on this for 5 hours already, called Asus support waited 40 min to be connected with a rep who advised me to watch a demo tutorial on youtube which helped NOTHING!

I thank you in advance for your assistance.

So I wanted to change my dvd drive because my old one was going the way of the dodo bird. I managed to remove it while the computer was off and then install the new ASUS dvd drive I bought on Amazon. I proceded to simply hook up the Sata cable to the ASUS p6t SE board I have (yes I know this is old), and I used a sata power to [prong power hookup from the power supply] adapter not knowing my Cooler master 650w supply already had a sata power cable.

Question is this: Firstly when powering on I swore I started to smell some faint electrical burning smell...wonderful! Not sure if the sata to prong looking power adapter was malfuntioning or hooked up wrong and cooked my new DVD-drive. After an attempted boot I also got a blue screen saying that a driver has corrupted my system and I can attempt to reboot. So I figured this was obviously the result of me trying to install a new dvd drive or the power adapter issue causing a problem.

After unhooking the power adapter and putting the correct sata power connector from my power supply into the back of the drive and making sure the sata cable was connected securely to a Sata port I booted up and checked the BIOS. No drive at all detected... I can't even get the dvd tray to open on the new drive when the computer is properly booted up.

Currently I have the drive still hooked up, windows managed to boot, but I can't do anything with the drive at all for some reason. Bad drive? Did I fry the drive with the adapter I... Read more

Good evening all!!

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this but....

Just wondered if someone can help me. I've recently bought an asus xonar D2/PM,

I downloaded the updated drivers from the Asus website and tried installing it on my new Windows 7 64 bit install but every time i run the install it crashes the PC which leaves me with the dreaded blue screen.
I also tried installing with the drivers disc that came with the soundcard but i get the exact problem

Has anyone had a similar problem and if so can you help me please!

A:Asus Xonar D2/PM Install Problems

I've experienced the same problem, but instead of bluescreening, it just hung. I had (at that time) an ASUS P5K mainboard.

This is what I did to alleviate this and successfully install the card:

1. Downloaded the latest driver
2. Disabled all devices that I didn't need, i.e. com, lpt, embedded audio (especially that) in the BIOS
3. Installed the driver with success and enjoyed the clear, quality sound

Good luck!

Update: Just installed on my new PC, forgot to disable onboard audio. The driver crashed windows. Disabled the onboard audio, successful install!
