Hair pulling time again!

Hi all, still trying to resurrect this Asus PC. Sticker on the back tells me it is a Pundit-R Motherboard is marked P4R8L.

Loads of near misses for part numbers on the asus site, but nothing specific for this motherboard, why not?

I have tried three sts of drivers and it is becoming a real pain!

Anyone any ideas or experience?

Also anyone else having problems with, I can't seem to log in!

Brgds, Epirb.

Thanks for the link wood chip. Am I being blind, I can see no mention of the AB-P 2800 on the Asus site.

I have tried the drivers listed under barebone for both the Pndit and the Pundit R but with no success.

I have actually found the Asus site really slow and difficult to use.

Seems the detective work will have to continue.

If you look at My post above that is also the motherboard You need to imput what CPU is fitted in the MOBO on the site so you can find the board and drivers for it

Hi, yes, understand but what I am saying is that if I select Barebone, then socket 478 and then Pundit-r I have actually managed to get the manual for the P4R8L but the drivers offered don't seem to work.

I still have yellow question marks against Ethernet controller, Multi media audio controller, SM bus controller and video controller (VGA compatible) and each one indicates that the driver is not installed.

Any cles anyone?

The sochet looks like it ether a P4 or Celeron CPU

Why not put that in the web page

  Epirb406 22:38 23 Feb 2007

it is a P4 3 ghz socket 478 chip and unless we are looking at different pages there is no option for specific chips.

What I am looking at is three frop down menues with choices. you?

Only thing I wonder is that if it is a fall out between asus and ATI who made the graphics chip, idea comes from a comment on the asus site about ati not providing drivers.

any ideas?

I could not test in the Drop down box'sas I did not know what chip you had in the board. So is this computer one of those small things with a Micro board fitted?

PS the Asus site is ether down or overloaded at the moment
