Article text size A. An e-mail exchange with Marvell’s tech support proved to be an exercise in culture clash; after explaining my problem, the tech support fellow declared in broken English that he was delighted to hear my system was working fine. It has the benefit of being backwards-compatible with ATA and ATAPI devices, and offers a thin, small cable solution, as seen in the photo on the right. Another curiosity is that there are jumpers on the board, and although one would expect the defaults to work at least minimally, the board’s default setting was to reset the BIOS every time the system is fired up. It took about five hours to complete.

It has the benefit of being backwards-compatible with ATA and ATAPI devices, and offers a thin, small cable solution, as seen in the photo on the right. We finally found two chips that worked, but they added up only to MB, not the 1GB that I had hoped for. But running it on a GB drive was a process I’d rather not do often: Uninstalling one of them was an easy process, but it took ages to find that problem in the first place. It ultimately means that Sthernet can save a few bucks by going with ATI instead of Intel, and offer tremendous improvements in video.

Due to technical reasons, we have temporarily removed commenting from our articles. It took about five hours to complete.

The problem with my case was that it was not designed to feluxe this oddity of design, a fact my helpful computer guru friend adus only after installing the board in the case. All comments will be reviewed by one or more moderators before being posted to etherney site. The stats on the northbridge-installed processors are very impressive, but the best test is till a visual one.


The manual could have gone through a couple of better translators; the floppy-drive connector should have been put on top of the board and not the side, though that would not necessarily affect people who might install it in other cases; quirky response to memory chips it claims to like; the default jumper settings should not be set to “reset system.

Ordinarily reliable memory seemed to choke the system; so at this point the machine was brought into a shop that had many different memory chips in stock.

A system bus is a single computer bus that connects the major components of a computer system, combining the functions of a data bus to carry information, an address bus to determine where it should be sent, and a control bus to determine its operation.

Read etherneh community guidelines here. ATI’s boasting point here is that with the IGP, it has found a way of producing a northbridge video chipset for 10 per cent lower cost than Intel can do it for.

Sure, it said so right in the manual, which we should have read. All the pain is in the setup; the rest is a fast ride on the wild side of computing.

A lengthy check into the causes of this the Ethernet update was just one of a package of updates I had installed, and it was difficult to tell which one had been the culpritshowed that rather than replace the old Ethernet driver, Marvell’s upgrade installed itself in parallel to the old driver.

When I ran etherhet BIOS upgrade checker two weeks into the machine’s life, it reported that there was an upgrade, and that I should download and install it. The Asus P4RV motherboard is a feature-packed powerhouse that makes an ideal foundation for a desktop workhorse or small server.

Despite the fact I want something to handle multimedia, my concern is less without high fidelity sound than it is with video. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft Windows Update is now reporting the arrival of an even newer driver, but when I tried installing that one, the mess got even worse. Once I got it working, it proved to be speedy and stable: In all, I’ve surprised myself to realize P4e800-v actually like the motherboard despite my problems with it.
