Ok I set agp to 4x (I had to reinstall drivers because there was no smartgart before) but it did't help. FSB still works with only 100MHz. The only thing that I can do is to flash the bios. Now I use 1005.

Are you sure you have the FSB jumper on the motherboard set to the 133mhz position, according to the correction page for the mistake that was in the manual? I would double check that setting. I'm using 1007 bios. Here is a picture of the jumper settings....

@Dave H

Thanks for the advice but I was able to fix it witout reseting the bios. It was the darn Coolermaster X-Dream2's fault. I just replaced it with a Volcano 6cu+ and it worked flawlessly! It can now play NFS! Woohoo!

Both jumpers are set to the right position. I will try with 1007 bios.

"just below the battery there are two metal points that you have to short
with a thin piece wire.that will reset the cmos.
my games don't want to play...help please"- Someone on the first page

When i turn on my computer i get no signal from Video and all the other stuff is running. Then a few seconds later i'll turn it off and turn the computer back on. Now i get a High-Low-High-Low alarm(Almost like a 90's car alarm). I know there is nothing wrong with my Monitor. I'm pretty sure it's not the hard drive. I did a swap and still nothing came up. I put in a different video card.. Still nothing. Tried booting it up without the Memory sticks(1 512 1 256 DDR). Took out the battery and put it back in. If i plug an ipod in the USB it charges. The problem started when my cousin plugged an old fan on the motherboard(Don't ask i don't know what he was thinking at the time)
My local Repair shop won't accept computers due to the high demand and there short staff.

Could some one please repley with some what down-to-earth language.
I need my computer back ASAP

THANKS FOR Takeing the time to Read this

The siren is a sign that the cpu needs to be taken out and reset.

Don't forget to install a new thermal pad or paste when you do this.

Its just a quirk of this board, sometimes it (the CPU) just needs to be reset?

I have an ASUS A7N266-VM Motherboard, AGP-4x Slot, 512 MB DDR RAM, 300W intex power supply, I bought a BIG GeForce 6200 256 MB 64-bit (AGP 8x) 3d Card. I dont know if my computer supports it. I tried putting it into the AGP 4x slot. The Computer did not boot up at all, but the fans were working. When I removed the Graphics Card, the System booted up.

Please Reply!!!

Have you disabled the onboard graphic card from the BIOS settings ? There's a menu there somwhere ( you can check the manual ) to disable the onboard graphics and enable the board in the AGP slot.

hope this helps

Hello. I too have an ASUS A7N266-VM for a few yrs now and been very happy with it ( not that i do a lot or games or something ). Now, i have a Duron 900 on it ( FSB 200 ) and faster memory ( FSB 266 ) and using them with 100/133 ratio from jumpers. I should change the processor but they'r hard to find now, but .. anybody has an ideea if running the memory and processor syncronyous ( 100/100 FSB ) would improve the system's speed ?

Thanking you in advance

I built two computers using this MB about three years ago. One for me and one for my mother. The siren beeping sound has come and gone on both of these computers. It has been a while since I have enclountered this problem, but I think I tracked it down to two things. 1) The mother board was making intermittent contact with the case somewhere causing a short to ground. I could always get the MB to boot when it was not in its case. This may also be causing a stress fracture on the PCB due to the weight of the CPU and cooling fan when it is installed in the case.
or 2) This is my latest theory: If the CPU fan is not sensed as having high enough RPM at the correct time during boot up the MB will not boot. Possibly cleaning the fan or while reseatting the CPU, as some people have suggested, will get the fan cleared up enough to allow it to boot.

Hopefully this may help someone out. Both PC are running fine and have been for some time now. Great stable MB in my opinion except for the siren beep that shows up every so often.

I am trying to repair a PC for a friend where the PSU was dead. Prior to this it would power off randomly after a few minutes useage (once I get past this stage, re-seating the CPU and the contacts to the heatsink with some good thermal paste are on the list to do).

Aside from A7N266-VM, there is a 2200+ chip, but I have not removed to check exact specs.

I have installed a new 450W PSU,but cannot get the board to POST. Green LED on the board itself comes on, CPU fan, case fan and PSU are all working nicely. Wireless mouse/keyboard hub from ps/2 sockets lights up, and LED's for power and HD are lit, so power seems to be getting into and around the motherboard.

Have tried with only one stick of RAM, swapping ram sticks between slots, removing CMOS battery, and removing and reseating the board with insulating washers on both sides in case of shorting; still just the PSU, cpu and case fans and LED's only; no hint of a POST.

Any suggestions gratefuly received!

Took the board out of the case and placed it on some cardboard, to completely rule out shorting. Had just the PSU plus CPU h/sink and fan and connected the monitor. No RAM etc.

Nothing, except the CPU fan spinning, and the green LED on the motherboard. No sounds at all. Nothing on the monitor.

Tried with one stick of RAM (in different slots) and still nothing more.

Replaced the CMOS battery and no better.

Am about to reach for my sledgehammer!!!!!! Well, not really, but it gives you an idea of the frustration.

Thanks

Richard

can anyone confirm that athlon mobile processors will work with these boards? i have bios 1007 and tried a 2400+ mobile in mine, but it will only run at 800MHz. does the wire mod allow these boards to run mobile processors?
