How do I get this P5W DH to turn on when power is applied without the remote control installed?

    When I first installed this P5W DH I installed everything. Then I started
    to look at what I had running in the background, in the task bar, and what I
    was likely to use.

    So I started to disable things in the startup list, un-install things, and
    turn off things in BIOS to improve the efficiency of the system, and get rid
    of things I don't use.

    Let me say, I really hate programs that install themselves in the auto-run
    section of the registry and offer no way to turn themselves off.
    Hate-hate-hate- a pox on your house. Is Easy CD/DVD creator and Nero
    listening? Well, ASUS has a problem with this too.

    The first time I used this remote control to setup the bios to start up when
    power was applied, the program hosed my bios. I lost all video. No video
    on boot up, no intro screen, nothing. However, I could hear the beeps and
    sounds of Windows starting.

    I had to reset the bios to regain video. Not happy. Out with the remote
    control, and its programs.

    Anyway, I have been unable to get this mobo to start up when power is
    applied. I have set the bios for this, but nothing happens. Apparently I
    must have the remote control software installed for this feature to work.
    But, I don't want to install this software. What can I do?

    Hi, DH works fine & runs ok here, you need it to use the remote. Set your
    bios back to default and try again...

    Do you mean you want it to start up when you plug it in or flip the PSU
    on/off switch? That wouldn't be related to the remote. Since you're
    talking about the remote, I assume you mean when the power button on the
    remote is pressed. If what you want to do is turn the computer on using
    the remote then you need to plug it into the correct port.

    With regard to your no-video problem, as I recall, the remote can instead
    of turning your PC off put it into hibernate mode. If that's what
    happened then its not an uncommon problem for the video to fail to
    comeback from hibernate. I'm not sure if this would be a BIOS problem or
    a driver problem or something else.

    Mitch:

    I just want the computer to power up when I turn on the power strip that
    feeds all my printers, scanner, monitors, and the computer. Nothing fancy.
    Always had this before, and want it now.

    Last week, I couldn't get this feature to work until after installing the
    remote hardware and control software. After which each time I turned the
    computer on, I would get a pop-up window informing me that I needed to setup
    the remote control for start up after the restore of power. I did this and
    it worked just like it should. (That is after I had to reset the bios after
    loosing my video to my monitors).

    It's just that I am not going to use this remote. So I would like to remove
    its receiver and software and go without running it. One less TSR
    (terminate and stay ready) program running in the background, freeing up
    resources, one more USB port on the back of the cpu case. One less doggle
    hanging off of my case.

    It's beginning to look like I --HAVE TO-- use the remote control to obtain
    this simple feature. But I don't want to. Kick kick, shuffle back and
    fourth. Can't I just leave the remote control in the box and get my computer
    to turn on after power on?

    I see. There is an option in the BIOS to start the computer after power
    loss, but I don't think that works if you shutdown properly, just if the
    power is interrupted while the computer is running. (At least it didn't
    work when I tried it.)

    There was a discussion here recently about using a capacitor across the
    power switch pins for this. I made one for a board I have running on a tray
    with no case and it works fine.

    That's a 1000uF cap. I'm told it may be trial and error to find one that
    works for a particular board. I haven't tried that one with my P5W DH.
    (BTW, if you use this approach it won't work if you switch the power off
    and then quickly switch it back on. You need to let the power drain for a
    few seconds first.)
