For some reason i can't select or see South Bridge configuration in Bios-Advanced-Chipset-South Bridge Config. Also in the overclocking section (JumperFree Config.) The ICH setting is missing!<img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> Any clue to what going on? <br />
<br />
Also I got an USB Device Not Recognized message...that message keeps popping up and it very annoying with that pop sound. I have to click on it and drag its window to the bottom of my task bar...By the way, all of my USB port works so i don't why this message is popping up. If im not mistaken, USB device or ports is controlled by South bridge? My monitor also have 4 usb ports just to let u guys know.<br />
<br />
Could my cpu cause this? Cuz i been removing it in and out for many times due to resitting the cpu cooler and changing mobo.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/5/51/51f3f167_vbattach33081.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/617176/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/7/79/7964638e_vbattach33082.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/617175/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

Got any USB device plugged in that might cause havoc?<br><br>
Did you try to reset the CMOS?

I tried unplugged all the usb devices and it still show it. As for the reset the CMOS, you mean manually using my hand to do it on the mobo or in the bios?

on the mobo.<br><ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Turn of computer</li>
<li>Disconnect power chord</li>
<li>Find and remove CMOS battery (round battery, shiny thing)</li>
<li>Move the CMOS reset jumper (see manual of your board, often near the battery)</li>
<li>Go walk the dog, or drink some coffee (in other words, wait a bit)</li>
<li>Replace the CMOS jumper</li>
<li>Replace the battery</li>
<li>Reconnect the power chord</li>
<li>Turn on PC</li>
<li>Hope it works.</li>
</ol>

Did you install all of the chipset drivers from your Motherboard CD?<br>
And, what device(s) in your Device Manager (Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager) have an "!" point by it(them) and what section is(are) it(they) under?

I fixed the USB problem by removing the usb and firewire cables out of my motherboard it came with my pc case. Now, i have the PCI Device problem.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/a/a2/a219402b_vbattach33088.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/a/a2/525x525px-LL-a219402b_vbattach33088.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:471px;"></a>

That PCI device is simply a missing driver for a PCI card, such as a soundcard or a LAN card, (could be on board). Make sure you have all drivers installed from the CD that came with the motherboard.

Go to bios. Load default settings and see if it helps.<br><br>
Or load default settings. Install fresh windows on another drive or something to see if the problem still lurking

Oh....and which service pack do you have installed for Windows. I think under Windows, you'll need SP2 for USB 2.0 to work smoothly<br><br>
Thus, install Windows SP2 and all drivers from the motherboard CD (Sound, LAN, Chipset maybe)

I have SP2 Window Xp Home. I installed the intel chipset driver but that pci device message still appear, but i think i can bear with that since i can exit it out.<br><br>
Now this is what i need helps the most; in the bios, the South bridge setting doesn't not exist same for the ICH setting. I only see North bridge config. and i think that causes my cpu temp can only be read by Asus PC Probe II and AI Suit. So just how do i make the south bridge configuration and the ICH setting appear in the bios?<br><br>
Edit: i also get low vcore voltage for some reason...usually, it should be atleast 1.30 or 1.35 for a Prescot P4. I think my mobo got confused that my cpu is a dual core....<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/d/d7/d7f29c22_vbattach33090.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/d/d7/525x525px-LL-d7f29c22_vbattach33090.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:420px;"></a>

Go to the Intel site and download the newest INF chipset drivers, that has fixed a couple of problems I was having on mine caused by the older drivers on the CD.<br />
<br />
Is this the plain P5B? Not the deluxe?<br />
<br />
Are you using the most recent BIOS? <br />
<br />
I doubt the lack of a southbridge setting section would affect your temperature readinfs.<br />
<br />
For voltage, set your voltage manually, don't leave it on AUTO.

Yes, this is the plain P5B except it's the newer revision 1.03G with a few solid capacitors.

I just downloaded the manual for the plain P5B, and confirmed, the BIOS for the plain version has no listing to change any southbridge settings....this feature is reserved for the Deluxe version of the board.<br />
<br />
So there is nothing wrong with your board there, it simply is not a BIOS supported feature to display your Southbridge in BIOS.
