A couple weeks ago I sent my second RMA’ed asus board off the second time they send it back saying it is not the boards problem. They say it is my HD and CD and PCI configuration. Below is a section of my second RMA letter i sent off. My specs are as follows: My Asus A7V has a prophet dual mx video card, sound blaster sound card, 256mb of ram, 900mhz thunderbird CPU, and a 45gb IBM hard drive.
Here is a description of my problems with both boards and the troubleshooting I did with my first board. The first three months my computer worked great then my mp3â€™s sounded like birds chirping(not the speakers I switched them out, still bad), when I went to view jpegâ€™s they looked pixely and funny and sometimes the program would end because of the number or errors occurring. I also noticed that I couldnâ€™t play games, the fps was horrible and I experienced the same problems as with viewing jpegâ€™s. I had windows 98se originally then I switched to another version, same thing, then I switched to windows 2000, same thing. I put an ATI card in, same thing, I put all my components into another computer and everything works flawlessly. I installed the 4in1 drivers before, in the middle, and after my other drivers. I have used the same drivers that I used when it worked. I have also downloaded new drivers. I have minimal applications on my computers so it couldnâ€™t be a program problem. I called tech support many times and they told me to get a RMA.
Does it sound like a config problem or a MB problem, and if it is the MB how can I get a new one?
