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.

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?

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

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

Hello,
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?

These are just examples.
You would need to do a websearch to find something that you want
for your computer.
Specs on your motherboard show you have one pci express X1 slot
and two standard PCI slots.
Although wireless cards can use more robust components,it doesn't
mean they may not have problems in the future.
You can just try and find out.
Make periodic backups of your computer,so you can just reload it
and go,in case of problems in the future.

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.

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?

Hi,

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).

WHAT I DID
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.

PROBLEM
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.

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

A:ASUS P6T Vista Install Help

From what I am seeing,you still have the CDROM set to first
boot device in the bios and the computer is booting to the

Change the first boot to the hard drive or remove the CD til
windows is booted up.

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.

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!

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.

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?

Hello Everyone,

I recently bought an Asus Xonar DGX soundcard for an HTPC I'm building. Upon installing the card and booting into Windows 7, Windows recognized the card but was unable to install a driver for it.

Trying to then install the drivers (via both the CD driver and one I downloaded from the Asus website) I was greeted with the following error message, ""Please plug-in ASUS Xonar D2 Audio device." I tried moving the soundcard to a different PCI-express slot, but I was greeted with the same error.


At this point, I'm not sure why I am unable to install the soundcard on my Windows 7 install. Everything has been working correctly so far, so not sure if there is a driver issue or something that is wrong with the card itself.


If anyone could offer any additional assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
--Asif

A:ASUS Xonar DGX 5.1 - Won't Install in Windows 7

Disable the on-board audio, in the BIOS and then try installing it. The on-board needs to be disabled anyway and two sound cards can cause conflicts.

BTW, your profile and My System Specs list Vista. Also nothing in My System Specs except the wrong OS. You should list your hardware there as it helps someone to try and help you.

I have an Asus eee laptop,on Linux which has no CD player. I also have a legal copy of Win XP which I want to install on the Asus, I do not have an external CD
My Dell laptop with CD has win XP.
How can set my laptop to act as a CD source for the Asus XP installation.
Thanks
Paul
 

A:using laptop cd to install WinXP on Asus eee

Magic? I think either investing in a USB cd type drive or, IF possible, In the days of windows 95/98, you used to be able to copy the install folder to a formatted bootable drive, boot to it and run the setup from the HD. Can't say I've done it recently, but maybe someone on here has or knows if it is still a viable option. It would involve moving the laptop hd into the one with the cd drive.

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?

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:

On my Asus m2n68-am se2, I am unable to boot Windows 7 nor install it on another drive.

INITIAL ISSUE: Could not boot

Last week, I tried to dual-boot install Fedora Linux onto my Windows 8.1 PC (Asus CM1435 Desktop). I resized the Data Partition (not OS partition) by 100GB. I then restarted the PC, and Fedora seemed to work okay, however, I could not got Windows to start anymore. I then turned on Secure Boot and other Windows 8-optimized settings and tried to start up again; it did not work, Windows could not boot.
I tried to search up some details on how to fix this problem, and I came across bcdboot and bootrec commands, and ran them (/fixmbr, /fixboot, /rebuildbcd), however, there was no luck, as /rebuildbcd gave me a 0 disks found error. I also followed the instructions here (https://neosmart.net/wiki/recovering...ws-bootloader/). At this point, "Windows Bootloader" disappeared from the BIOS. Restarting resulted in a "Missing Operating System" error.
I tried using a Windows 8 installation disk, and tried Reset and Refresh, but neither worked. Reset gave me "Recovery Partition could not be found" (was still there, just got messed up in the resize or something), and Refresh gave me "Disk where windows is located is locked" (perhaps from fast reboot?)
Then, I gave up all hope on the current installation. I booted into my Windows 8 recovery disk, formatted C:, and installed it from there. When it got to "Windows needs to restart to continue", restarting put me to "Missing operating system", and I coul... Read more

1.Boot from the Windows 8 install media (You must initiate this boot from a device labeled as a UEFI device, or the installation of Windows 8 will produce an error that the OS cannot be installed to a GPT partition) These UEFI boot devices will have a prefix UEFI: "name of your device", and show as a boot option in your UEFI.
2.After booting to the UEFI device you see the Install Windows 8 screen, press Shift + F10 to open a command prompt.

Hello,

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

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.

I am having an issue with Windows 10 on my laptop. I have installed Windows 10 on various machines from laptops to desktops without any issues. I have used USB and DVD media as well as done clean installs and upgrades. This is the first problem like this I have run into and it's really frustrating and all the Google-Fu I have used is not working on this issue.

The install begins just fine and when it goes to reboot the first time the laptop reboots to the Windows 10 logo, the loading graphic spins at the bottom for around 10 seconds and then it shuts off completely. When the laptop is restarted it restores itself backs to Windows 7 after giving the BSOD error of the SAFE_OS error.

I have tried to uninstall all unneeded drivers, wifi, network, software, clean install of 7, wiped hard drive and clean install of 10, no partitions on hard drive, bios is updated, jumping into bios at startup and shutting down then restarting, various install media, old and new versions of Windows 10, 32 and 64 but versions.

Can anyone help as this really is frustrating me. The laptop is an I5 w/16gb factory RAM and nvidia graphics m310 (I think).

Thanks in advance.
