A7V8X-X BIOS version 1003 vs 1005

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Dennis Demont, Jun 22, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    Installed a new PC today, with the ASUS A7V8X-X mainboard, BIOS version
    1003. Got the famous "Hardware Monitor found an error". Checked Power Setup,
    no values in red, CPU fan speed N/A.
    So I checked the ASUS site, found something about CPU fan reading being
    fixed in BIOS version 1005.
    I flashed the BIOS (what the hell, MB is just 5 min. old) and what happens
    next: error gone, but PC fails to boot (no IDE devices detected). When I
    enter BIOS setup and then exit, the PC starts just fine.

    How come? I couldn't find anything odd in the settings, and ended up
    reflashing version 1003, then set Halt on No errors in BIOS so the error is
    not halting boot up. System works fine apparently.

    Does the 1005 version contain a bug or what?

    Mine has the same problem and I just disabled all the hardware monitors in
    BIOS, set them all to "ignored" and then it works just fine and you still be
    able to monitor temps and voltages and fan speeds in windows with AsusProbe.
    I believe there IS a bug in the 1005 bios.

    contacted the asus CS and no reply.

    Try using PC2100 memory instead of PC2700. It was the only way we could get
    around this problem in our shop without disabling the hardware monitor.
