P5k!!!! Need Major Help!!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

well ive been using my P5K for a logn time. since about septemeber roughly. i have never been to bad with this board. making sure that nothing over heats. basically treating it right.

Heres the problem. My LAN port is detected and installed. but when i try to send data through it, the LAN port just cuts out. the lights on the back of the board turn off and turn back on and my computer just gets a new IP from my router. I have tried assigning a Static IP and i just have the same problem. Ive tried new drivers and even old ones but nothing. same problem. I've checked cables and tried a direct connect to my modem and still nothing.

Here is problem no2. When rebooting one time my overclock had failed. i thought this to be a bit weird when my overclock was solid for about 16hours on Prime95. even OCCt said it was stable at 3ghz for 24 hours. i know it isnt the CPU as it is kinda new and works in other baords at the same overclock.

When i returned everything to default TEXT BOOK settings the overclock still failed. so i return everything to auto then i got "BIOS Corrupt" i inserted the P5K disc and put in the stock BIOS that comes with the disk and still overclock failed on STOCK SETTINGS. (note: i had the latest BIOS before a reflash)

Ive come to a conclusion. my motherbaord has had it. but the thing is that the company that i bought it from went bust. how can i RMA the board to ASUS. i cant find it on there UK website. can anyone help me and forward me a link please.

clear cmos?

doest he p5k have the same crash free bios setup? perhaps you could just update the bios to the newest version (is it already?)

If you fix the overclock issue but still have trouble w/ the ethernet adapter i acutally havea brand new linksys 10/100 pci card you could use (my moms ethernet adapter in her hp pavilion just broke - doing the exact same thing you described ironically - i just threw the 2nd one of these 10/100's i had and it worked fine)

Let me know if your interested...

As far as RMA'ing the board i dont think asus would do that (not sure though) it is strange that there isnt a listing for a UK divison of theirs on the site... perhaps call the US numbers?

Good luck either way

well it did have a crash free BIOS and i did the update. after that i reinstalled windows by formatting my hard drive (the long way) boy did that take long!!!

Yeh and everything is working great again. my overclock is solid at 3.2GHz with my kick ass E2180. my ram is running better then before at 4-4-4-12 @ 1180Mhz. i think this board just got alot better.

My LAN is up and running as well. what more could i want. lol!!!
