Specs: Xp, N/R
Does anybody know where I can get a full manual for the Asus A7V-VM motherboard? It's been used by HP in their Pavilion 500 model. HP does not have manual & the mother board is not listed in the Asus website. The manuals on the web are also incomplete.

Thank you

I just put "A7V-VM" into google & the 2nd hit on the list was a 21-page Quick Start manual. It cover's everything you need to know about the board setup except the BIOS...& since it's an HP BIOS, there's really not much to know anyway.

I'm fairly certain that's an alias of Asus A7V133-VM. Downloads for it are here:

You may want to check that too.

Thank you all for the replies
I'm afraid the A7V-VM and A7V133-VM are different motherboards with different specs- e.g. north bridge chipset.

My problem with this board is that it has both on-board graphics & an AGP slot. It has been run with a graphic card which is now removed. When I turn the system on there are no beeps & no signal to monitor. I want to switch back the graphics to the onboard GPU but I don't know what to look for (jumpers etc). There is no mention of any graphic setting jumpers in the A7V133-VM manual either. Any bright ideas?

No, the chipsets are the same (at least I couldn't see any difference).This shows the specs for the A7V-VM which is the same as the A7V133-VM. (You can download the manual from the FTP site to check.) The northbridge and southbridge are the same. There was a site I found yesterday where someone posted that the chipsets were different but that apparently was in error.

But as far as your particular problem, clearing the cmos should revert is back to the on-board graphics.

Unfortunately most Asus boards have no 'clear cmos' jumpers. They did however have the solder points where the jumper pins should be. Their position is marked on the motherboard. The Asus method is to short those 2 points with the end of a screwdriver to clear the cmos. You can try that or remove the battery--a couple hours to make sure.

When you bootup after the cmos has been cleared it will load default settings which will include the on-board graphics. Then go into cmos and set the date and time and any other settings for which default is not adequate for your particular system.
