Written on: 09/01/2011 by bavaneche (1 review written)

A7V8X-X Motherboard: Great motherboard...with a couple of problems that don't effect each motherboard. I have 4 of these mb's and 2 of them can't go beyond the 1.5gig RAM size without constant rebooting...the other 2 are great. All 4 of them seem to have a problem with heavy weight video cards which will also cause reboots off and on. I find 64mb GeForce 2's and 4's work great. I use 512 RAM sticks on the 2 that have RAM problems and I have no problems then. On the other 2 I use a full 2 gigs… Read Full Review

I tried 3 times to load Windows XP but it kept stopping at the format drive part of the install. Then i noticed on the boot screen that the virus protection was active in the bios. After i disabled the virus protection the motherboard no longer recognised the hard drive. It killed my hard drive. I'm up and running with a new hard drive but these things aren't cheap. Everything works fine now and i've found no problems… Read Full Review

Greatest mother board for the value, with the low cost of the components for this dated motherboard you can build one serious rig for very little bread!

Written on: 19/02/2006 by abdnray (4 reviews written)

The ASUS A7V8X-X is a versatile and capable motherboard that suits a variety of users.

The motherboard layout is reasonably good, and the supporting documentation is clearly set out and easy to follow. My only criticism is that the tail end of the AGP card encroaches close to the first DIMM memory slot, therefore it might be easier to remove the AGP card before inserting a new DIMM module in memory slot 1.

The motherboard can accommodate a variety of Socket A processors (Athlon XP Barton and… Read Full Review

I have had the Asus A7V8X-X motherboard for 1 and a 1/2 years, and it never lets me down! I have read that a lot of you have had problems with the XP setup. I recommend you go into the BIOS where there is a menu that says plug and play OS, set it to yes and it will work great!!… Read Full Review

Well it's me again - I discovered that the mobo has some problems in the ide cables - you always have to put the cd in master 2 ide and master the install hd. If you have that problem I recommend that you get new ide cables - I had to get new cables. :S Anyway it still works fine and now I have over clocked my cpu to 2300 but added an extra fan as I don't have anymore money to get the cpu water cooled. It's still the best mobo that I've had but I'm planning on getting a new mobo soon. If you need any help just let me know.

Guten Tag, sorry I don't speak english. NTLDR error is: cable not ok for FDD, HDD or CD-ROM. OR in BIOS 1st-Boot-Sequenz must be: Floppy or HDD or CD-ROM must be ad 1st.

I have read the other reviews about the Asus A7V8X-X motherboard, and I have never had any problems with it! Maybe I was lucky? I don't know. I didn't need to update the BIOS for any reason, and I managed to get a Sempron to run on it, although it was displayed as an Athlon XP. It was pretty quick and easy to set up, everything running pretty smoothly. It took a variety of RAM, 64 to 1 Gig, Kingston, Crucial, Matrix, Corsair. I had it running Duron's, Athlon's, Athlon XP's, and Sempron's… Read Full Review

Tried to install XP 3three or four times. The first time the installation went alright but once I got into XP the first time I hit a key it crashed (I was typing something into the 'run' dialog but I found it doesn't matter-it crashed if I hit a key. I tried Windows a few more times with the same results (except sometimes it would let me hit two or three keys first. I reinstalled XP only to find that it had the same problem during the installation this time. Tried a few more times but it was… Read Full Review

I returned my Asus A7V8X-X to the store, which I expect to have already returned the unit to ASUS for repair or replacement. The mobo is a big disappointment.

This motherboard caused me innumerable hours of investigation, frustration and headaches before I could definitely prove it was at fault, and not my other periferials! Went with ABIT, and all the other same hardware, and haven't had the BSOD's since! I used to like Asus, and I've built several of my own computers since 1997, but I've heard they've really gotten cheap and they don't even support their retailers any more. No more Asus for me.

I like this Asus A7V8X-X motherboard basically, BUT I run Win98 and so far cannot get sound. I've tried e-mailing the ASUS tech help, which promises a reply in 48 hours. So far I've e-mailed 3 times over a 2 month period - no reply EVER. I've tried downloading upgrades, alternative chipset drivers and so on. To no avail.
This lack of support is a shame and lets down an otherwise good procduct. They score 8 for the product but lost 4 for the poor support… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2004 by GallagherKnight (2 reviews written)

Everything seemed to be going my way while installing an Asus A7V8X-X until the time came to actually install my OS. It kept freezing over and over, and I noticed that this specific board was not able to properly run DDR400 ram in conjunction with my Athlon XP 2600+ that has a 333 FSB. Indeed, the manual suggests using only DDR333 with a 333 FSB... but the problems only got worse from there. It kept on refusing to run, sending me straight to the BIOS and suggesting to verify that my DDR333 ram… Read Full Review

You should have set the BIOS setting for the memory on SPD (serial presence detect). I have tried DDR pc 400 and ddr pc266, both works fine. I also tried combining the two memory together, still no problem. In fact, it boost the performance. I think you just missed the BIOS part of setting it to SPD.
