hmmm, sounds like the cpu's dead. but as a last ditched attempt you could test the cpu in a different pc if one is available, if not check all your connectins.

Error 34:
There was no error

Check the BIOS where your voltages are listed. There is a 3.3v rail...a 5v rail and 12v rail listed. Make sure the 3.3v and 5v rail are close to that spec. If your 3.3v rail is not getting good powere...say 3.0v or less or your 5v rail is dropping below 4.7 you may get that error. I have an Asus A7N8X deluxe with an XP2500 and was getting that error due to my power supply overheating. The fan had quit and after an hour or so it would overheat...reboot and give me that error.

If your system is otherwise stable besided the error you turn off the post voice in the BIOS. If that doesn't work you can use the voice editing software that came with your Asus mainboard and edit that error message out of it so that it doesn't say it. Do this only if you are not experiencing problems other than it just saying that.

I am experiencing the same problem, except the system DOES work, only when i use a lesser video card. When i use the more powerful video card i get "system failed cpu test", "system failed cpu test".... no video, no system boot, nothing but the annoying vocal post message.

my system consists of:
Intel P4 2.8c
Asus P4P800 dlx
Kingston value ram pc3200 512mb (2x 256mb) dual channel
Antec true power 430w PSU
Nvidia Geforce FX5900 128mb agp 8x (doesnt work in this system, works in other systems)
or
ATI Radeon 7000 agp 4x (works fine)

i've tried to unplug everything except mobo, video card and memory then try the system (same prob)
i've upgraded my PSU from 350w generic to 550w generic to Antec true430 (same prob)
i've RMA'd the mobo back to ASUS, they swapped me another board (same prob)
i've upgraded the bios about 3 times i'm atleast up to date but (same prob)
i've contacted whatever tech support possible but still (same prob)
i've tried almost everything except swapping the CPU or memory

I would like to know if your system would work with a lesser possibly agp4x video card.

or if anyone knows anything please HELP!!!

What I find that works quite well is to buy another processor! If that doesn't work, try taking it out, and putting it in again. If that doesn't work, re-arrange all the components in the computer. If that doesn't work, buy a new motherboard, because that could be the root of every single problem that you have ever had and known with your faulty processor. If that doesn't work, I find that giving your computer a big kick up the backside works for me! On the other hand, I'm rich and have spent over 70,000 on replacement computers, because of me kicking them, so you may want to steer clear of that. But please, feel free to try any of my other suggestions, and if you ever EVER need any more help, with your faulty processor, or any single little tiny miniscule part or piece of your computer, you know who to come to!

ASUS ASUS ASUS. Where are the mentions of problems with ABIT and SOYO boards? And for the record, I am glad as heck my PC doesn't talk to me. My parents interupt me enough when I'm on it.

Anyways, as to the problem, I think you may want to try another CPU. After all, if it is saying it's failing the test than it probably is.

It's most likely the motherboard.

I finally fixed my problem, it ended up being a faulty video card.. my mobo (ASUS p4p800dx) is capable to run agp 8x or 4x, i think there was something wrong with the 8x capabilities with my video card (GeForce FX5900 128mb) because when i used a 4x video card the system worked fine, but with the 8x video card it gave me the error message. i thought it was a compatability issue or something except the obvious.

well after RMAing almost everything but the video card, i finally RMA'd the video card back to BFG technologies, a couple of weeks later i got a new one and it works fine since (Knock on wood)... hopefully this could help others...

perhaps try to take each card out (one at a time) and try them in another system.. to see if maybe something went bad...

good luck.

Sean

Perhaps this should be reported to Asus since it should and probably was trying to say "System failed GPU test" or something like that. Thank God my Abit IC7 doesn't talk, not that I've ever had a problem with it, ever. If I wanted to listen to something bitch constantly, I'd call my ex-wife. lol

Here's my two bits - Same symptom as everyone else -

P4 2.8 Prescott
ASUS P4P800E Deluxe
Antec TrueBlue 480
OCZ 3700 1GB
Aero 4 Cpu fan (so its staying nice and cool)
Radeon 9800XT

All factory settings

I have removed the MB from the tray to eliminate EMF
I have removed all added pieces except the CPU and FAN
I have added pieces one at a time
I have reset the CMOS
I have reseated the CPU multiple times

There was some discussion about excessive pressure from the fan on the CPU by the mount, I released the springs and lightly held it in place. - No workey.

All with the same POST result and no video at all

The Processor runs fine in a Dell System

I have talked to ASUS once (I guess I got lucky) thats why I found out about the EMF deal - it also sounded like ASUS is very aware of this problems and there IS an answer but it is not getting posted in thier FAQ's - probably so competition can't hammer them.

Going to try to RMA with them, hopefully we'll know something soon!

I'm having the same problem ("SYSTEM FAILED CPU TEST") and here are my specs:

ASUS P4C800-Deluxe motherboard
Intel 2.80 Ghz 800 Mhz FSB cpu
1 GB RAM (2 x 512 MB micron dimms)
ATI RADEON 9600 PRO video card
2 x 40 GB maxtor hard drives (RAID 0 config)
350 Watt power supply

First I had the motherboard replaced by ASUS. (no fix)
Intel said the problem was with the BIOS but the motherboard I got from ASUS has the latest BIOS.
Then, Intel replaced the processor. Just got it back today. (no fix)
Still getting the same error message. I didn't even plug in the video card!!! Doesn't sound like a video card problem to me. I still haven't heard of a fix for my problem. All ASUS can think of is reseatting the CMOS battery -- and no, that didn't solve my problem. My neighbor, too, is having the same problem and he has a 2.6 Ghz processor. Whoever's hardware is causing this problem needs to do a major market recall!!!!

Hi m8,

Ive had this happen with the Asus boards. Got to be honest, Ive not been impressed at all with the P4C800 range.

As already suggested, you can try and remove the chip, and see if that does it. I found it worked on mine....for a while at least.

Best to check the VCORE voltage in the motherboard diagnostic settings. See if its at a normal 1.55v *if your not O/Cing it* if its much lower than that, the chip is most certainly dead or dying. You can try resetting the Bios, to see if that helps.
The only way around it if its still bugging you, at least for the time being is to Disable "HALT ON" in the BIOS settings, so that the system boots without displaying or emitting the audiable alarm.

G'day.

Apologies for not updating sooner.

I spent a lot of time on the phone with ASUS over a period of 24 hours and they pronounced the specimen dead on arrival. Not willing to give up the many many hours of research I had done before deciding on purchasing a Board from this ASUS family, I promptly went out and purchased a P4C-800 Deluxe locally.

I plugged everything into the new board and was rewarded with a perfect boot the first time. I have since run numerous tests and spent plenty of time gaming (going to med school ya know ;-) - very pleased.

One thing I noticed that I have not seen much info about specifically with Far Cry and UT2004, the Northwood 2.8 chip I have increases temp sometimes past threshold (70C). The Prescott 2.8 runs a good 10C hotter but does not trip the safety shut-down, maxing the temp at 65C AND o/c to 3.3GHz, the temp maxes at 67C.. not bad. I COULD use this thing to heat the room in the Winter - OK, so I live in Florida and that's not saying much - but still....

I had this problem
I've used AMD for 12 years and thought Intel deserved a second chance.
Plugged in everything.. turned on... and BLAM! System failed cpu test.. System failed cpu test
I ripped everything out.. following the ideas on this forum as well as many other
Nada.. Nothin Zip System failed cpu test "Son of a!!!"


anyways apparently Intel mobo's require a second power connection. 4 prong square port by the CPU.
Plugged it in and "Voila he screamed with great relish"

Give it a try you monkeys... easy now
