Asus a7m266 ..Cannot get an A: prompt
Posted on 2003-02-28
Building up this new system and am having trouble getting it to bootup. Problem----after standard one beep post: ( BIOS award medallion bios ver 6.0 asus a7m266 acpi rev1004a). The initial boot screen system shows then it hangs at second screen showing cpu type,cache mem type, mem installed, Pci device listing is last thing shown and does not go any further. Cannot get an A-prompt and Control+alt+delete does not work (must reset to get back to bios).Have tried jumper/jumper free board settings. AsusA7m266 socket A 266fsb freq set at 133 , AMD Athalon XP 1600 cpu rated 1400mhz, Matrix g400 dual head video card , 6.4gig Maxtor Hdd, 512 ddr pc2100 ram, 24x cd rom,1.44m floppy. I know the board needs bios update 1005a to work with the Athalon XP 1600 processer. But I need an A: prompt before I can do the update.
