I've recently upgraded my motherboard to asus p5ql-em. This model comes with an integrated graphics x4500 from intel.
This is not my first upgrade,but it is the first I've had problems with.

my config is:
- asus P5QL-EM (my previous mobo was P5VDC-X)
- Kingston 2x1 gb DDR2 667mhz
- Intel pentium D 805 2,67ghz (fsb 533 mhz)
- hdd>WD caviar6400 sata300
- psu> Chieftec 350w
- e-mu 0404 (para musica) PCI card

After installing and double checking connections I've powered it up and the board signaled:
1 long 2 short beeps ...again and again.
As I understand these should suggest a video error...
Anyway, I've downloaded the latest bios update, unzipped it and stored it on FAT32 formatted usb flash disk.
Problem is I cannot access EZ flash utility,the board keeps beeping,and there is no POST screen.

 Is there any other method of accessing bios update? (I do not have working pci-express card to plug into this board).

Thanks Smile

Have you tried turning on your screen (so that the screen is active) before turning on your pc?

Cheers  ;-)

What does it do with everything removed?

Remove ram, HDD, PCI cards etc

What happens when you power it on now?

Thanks for suggestions but first I need to ask you something:

Could it be that I've managed to missmatch Cpu with board?

Thing is, G43 chipset starts from 800mhz FSB and my old D 805 is at 533mhz fsb...
 Last night I managed to find cpu support list from asus and mentioned supported cpu's are 800mhz+ ...

Can processors with slower fsb even work on faster mobos?
