I've just replaced my Asus A7V266-E with a Asus A7V600-X all went ok until the boot up got as far as the XP users logon screen and it froze with no response from the PS/2 KB or USB mouse. There seems to be no USB support. Could this be a simple config problem or somthing more sinister. Any help most welcome. Thanks in advance and Merry Xmas to all.
Which CPU, how much memory and type also BIOS version of motherboard.
The Asus motherboard is jumperless so I take it you have not changed any jumpers.
You applied the thermal soloution paste under HSF on the CPU core ? Also not too much so its not going to oooze all over the place.
From settings in the BIOS starting from Defaults when changing the bios settings take it you have SAVED all changes on Exit. Even the slightest thing like a incorrect Date & year can cause problems on boot.
Oh, and which Windows, more on the configuration and SPeC of your machine please.
