QUOTE (AMD808 @ Apr 27 2005, 07:01 PM) The A7N8X-E Deluxe is a very good board.

Remember, when you first install the CPU, it will be defaulted to a 100 MHz FSB as a fail safe defualt. To enter the bios, hold down the DEL (Delete) key at POST (Power On Self Test). IIRC, this board has jumper(s) which need to be configured - the motherboard manual will have all the information on this.

QUOTE all of these posts are crossing in the net and i hope you guys get to read the whole thread again.

what a mess

Maybe MD will do a little clean up for us.
i'm glad you mentioned that because another tech told me how much he liked this board because it was jumperless.
the last one is the asus a7v8x and it had a couple of jumpers on it, not too confusing .
i'm gonna keep this old box, that's not too old really,
and see if i can figure out how to turn it into a softwall.

but one project at a time.

#2 do what the manual says

Not trying to sound mean here...but all manuals I've seen will tell you what to do..

MD
ZONIAN, I'm a Vietnam Vet and was fortunate enough to come home safe and sound. Now that I'm retired, I teach Vets computer skills and teach seniors as well. As much as I try, sometimes I do the exact same thing as MD posted.

You help so many people day in and day out but once in a while you finally slip and say "READ THE FREAKIN' MANUAL!" It's just the way it is, especially if you feel the person asking for help isn't lifting a finger himself. (Of course that's a snap decision and may be wrong.)

If you don't have the same component as the person asking for help and aren't familiar with it or have forgotten it - and you're busy and can't locate documentation quickly it's easy to say something quick and move on. That's the way it is in a support position, paid or voluntary, there's just so much time.

If you want a real education, read some of MD's replies to countless other questions. He really knows his stuff and is organized. I learn a lot from him and others here who routinely answer questions. You came to the right place and did get help so all is well and the system works!

The A7N8X is a good board and you'll be happy with it as I am with my four. But definitely RTFM! I've read mine over and over and it finally sinks in. Also, here is lots of info on ASUS boards: http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=219041' ">http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=219041

first i'm not a ZONIAC

AND WE ALL GOT THE THING SORTED OUT HERE.

I AM A ZONIAN

THAT MEANS I WAS BORN IN THE CANAL ZONE,
IN THE REPUBLIC OF PANAMA.
THAT'S IN THE AREA OF THE WORLD WHERE THERE IS A SKINNY LITTLE ISTHMUS OF LAND BRIDGING THE AMERICAS

MD and I kissed and made up.
now all you young cowboys get a tight grip on your reins and pull back.

did you miss the post about the eyes?

small case here just for you id.

when you get my age maybe you'll go for the radial keratotomy.

i have to use glasses just to read the board even with this firefox configured to large font.

you ought to see the size of type i use composing emails.

you'll be alright, i'm sure .

ZONIAN's not posting in caps to sound like he is yelling...LOL

From my general experience in communicating with anyone currently or formerly in the USMC, & Armed Forces in general, it is quite ingrained into a lot of them to write in all CAPS...

Even my Grandfather, who was a Special Constable in the London Metropolitan Police and a higher officer in the British Army Military Police wrote in all caps, my co-worker who was a Tank Commander in the Ethiopian war with Eritrea, still writes in all caps...Very ingrained philosophy/practice that occurs the word over I have observed
