    Hmm - interesting.
    I'd be more inclined to install ONLY the LAN driver, then install the rest of the drivers in the following order, by using fresh downloads from the net.
    I'd also think about updating the BIOS - they seem to have issued a large number of updates for this board, and it may be as a result of issues encountered. NOTE:- updating the BIOS is one of the few operations on a computer that can truly make it an expensive doorstop, so only do an update if you are sure that you have the right one, and are prepared for any eventuality! The version numbers I see on the Asus site don't tally with the one I see in the report, so I can't recommend which one to go for.
     
    1) Chipset
    2) Graphics -  install ONLY the VGA driver at this stage
    3) Audio
    4) Updated LAN
    I'd leave the rest well alone, unless you have the need for them
    This should get your system up and running at its design speed without installing a lot of fluff that you may well never use (and half of which I wouldn't want to touch<g>)
     
    Once you've got a fully-functional system, then you can worry about tweaking it till it breaks - after you've made a system image so that you can restore it when it all turns to rat droppings.

    Your system is rather corrupted -you have a large number of file mismatches.
    It may be that the problem is with the Licensing Store itself, rather than the file system, so try this first.....
    Try the below steps to recreate the Store and its data.
     
    1) Click Start button.
    2) Type: CMD.exe into the 'Search programs and files' field
    3) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    4) Type: net stop sppsvc   (It may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    Note: the Software Protection survive may not be running, this is ok.
    5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
    6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    7) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    8) Type: net start sppsvc
    9) Type: slui.exe
    10) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear. It's most likely that Activation will occur automatically but you may be asked to re-enter your product key and/or to reactivate.

  • Hi Noel, Thanks for your reply, before I go any further, I have found this

    http://www.microsoft.com/oem/en/licensing/sblicensing/Pages/licensing_for_hobbyists.aspx

    It looks like I have brought the wrong product, which might explain corroupt files?

    There was something about OPK to make it work properly.

    Question is now, do I try what you have suggested or:

    1: Is there a way I can get this product to work with your help

    2: Bite the bullet, lesson learned & buy a retail version & which is the right product for a newly built pc

    Basically, I'm a numpty, your advice would be appreicated

    Graham
    Don't worry about the OPK - that's purely for cosmetic purposes, and to ensure that the actual owner of the PC has to have the opportunity to read the Terms of Use before running Windows and committing to purchase.
     
    The version you have should be fine (and you can't send it back now) - but you need to try what I outlined above, and then come back with the results.

    Graham

    Yeah, it's a software problem - your installation is somewhat goosed!  :)
     try using the System File Checker -
    System File Checker - Instructions
    Click on the Start button
    type in the Search  box
    CMD.EXE
    right-click on the only file that is found
    Select Run as Administrator
     - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
    At the Command prompt, type
     
    SFC   /SCANNOW
     
    and hit the Enter key
    Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot
    Visit the Validation site  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine and attempt to Validate Windows - again, make a note of error messages.
    Reboot.
    Run MGADiag again, and post the report, and error messages in your reply.

    Now, heres the interesting bit that I slightly understand.lol

    At new build, Asus P7P55 LX P55 Socket 1156 8 Channel Audio Out ATX Motherboard disc put in, then Asus GT 430 1GB DDR3 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card disc put in, then Windows7 disc = corroupt, would not validate or update

    While I was waiting for a reply yesterday, I put win7 disc back in, it patitioned hard drive with: System reserve (E:) 61.8 MB free of 99.9 MB + Local disc (C:) 886 GB  free of 931 GB

    Has it partitioned E: to seperate corrupt copy or is that back up memory?

    I had to re-input key but if you notice I still have 3 rearms before lockout, so it hasn't used any, because I didnt format the drive. So theorectically I can play, get it working then format & install as new, Phew!

    Anyway, it WORKED, win7 validated & updated, seeing programs missing for graphics card, I put motherboard & graphic discs back in, reloading drivers & utilites = corrupt.

    So I deleted what was called utilites, still corrupt.

    So, is windows7 finding it's own drivers for motherboard & graphics? Should I only be installing utilites & not drivers?

    Hope this helps a little

    Thanks for help as always

    Now, heres the interesting bit that I slightly understand.lol

    At new build, Asus P7P55 LX P55 Socket 1156 8 Channel Audio Out ATX Motherboard disc put in, then Asus GT 430 1GB DDR3 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card disc put in, then Windows7 disc = corroupt, would not validate or update

    While I was waiting for a reply yesterday, I put win7 disc back in, it patitioned hard drive with: System reserve (E:) 61.8 MB free of 99.9 MB + Local disc (C:) 886 GB  free of 931 GB

    Has it partitioned E: to seperate corrupt copy or is that back up memory?

    I had to re-input key but if you notice I still have 3 rearms before lockout, so it hasn't used any, because I didnt format the drive. So theorectically I can play, get it working then format & install as new, Phew!

    Anyway, it WORKED, win7 validated & updated, seeing programs missing for graphics card, I put motherboard & graphic discs back in, reloading drivers & utilites = corrupt.

    So I deleted what was called utilites, still corrupt.

    So, is windows7 finding it's own drivers for motherboard & graphics? Should I only be installing utilites & not drivers?

    Hope this helps a little

    Thanks for help as always

    I hate to say it, but your installation hasn't validated at all - and never will, in its current state..
    You still have many tampered files
    I suspect that the problem is those 'utilities' - one of them was almost certainly Vistalizator (Is that disk a genuine one from Asus - I cannot see any way that they would put that on your machine!)
    The 100MB partition is Win6's Boot partition - it's a hidden one that contains the files that Windows needs to boot from, and is created by default if you install Windows to an empty HD. It's quite normal.
    What is NOT normal is for the number of tampered files to appear straight after a clean installation.
    You do not install the drivers and suchlike before the OS, you install the OS first, and then the motherboard-specific drivers afterwards, unless there are very pressing reasons for doing something else (which are rare, for Win7 - mostly related to RAID drivers) You would now have to reinstall the drivers again - but until you have Win7 in a fit state, there's not much point.
     
    Since you now have a clean install, my best suggestion is to do a complete reinstall again, this time using ONLY the System Builder disk, and booting from that, then wiping the HD completely, and installing from scratch. Make sure that you have any BIOS virus-protection switched off.
    DO NOT activate it yet - take the option not to activate automatically.
    Once the install is complete, reboot a couple of times to let things settle down, and then run MGADiag again, and post the results.
    If that's clean, then you can start installing the motherboard and Graphics drivers - at each step along the way, run MGADiag, and see whether it reports tampered files. That way, you'll know what not to install next time (if it comes to that). Once everything is installed, go to Windows Updates, and install a few of the updates at a time, again running MGADiag before the next batch of updates.
    Once the machine is up to date, and the report is still clear of tampers, then you can activate it, and validate it.

  • Asus P7P55 LX motherboard support CD (supplied with motherboard)

    Drivers as follows: Intel chipset driver, Intel Matrix storage manager driver, VIA audio driver, Browser configuration utility

    Realtek 10/100/1000 PCI-E Lan driver, ASUS EPU-4 Engine, (norton internet security-not installed because I have Kaspersky)

    Utilties as follows: Realtek Ethernet Utility, ASUS Express gate installer, ASUS update, ASUS PC PROBE II, ASUS Turbo key, ASUS TurboV

    Adobe reader 9 & ASUS AI Suite

    bit more akward, it doesnt list them individually, ASUS VGA Drivers: nVIDIA display driver 259, ASUS VGA multi language manual, ASUS Gamer OSD 2.08.0406 for xp, ASUS Gamer OSD 3.07.0419 for win7, ASUS smartdoctor. but you cannot load individually? Can you?

     Ok, bit extra, If I format HD wont I lose a rearm if it goes t*TS up?

    What is BIOS virus protection? & how do you turn if off?

    Do I install drivers & utilites?

    Sorry about all the questions, bit of asteep learning curve for me.EEK!

    only want system that works

    Thanks

    Hmm - interesting.
    I'd be more inclined to install ONLY the LAN driver, then install the rest of the drivers in the following order, by using fresh downloads from the net.
    I'd also think about updating the BIOS - they seem to have issued a large number of updates for this board, and it may be as a result of issues encountered. NOTE:- updating the BIOS is one of the few operations on a computer that can truly make it an expensive doorstop, so only do an update if you are sure that you have the right one, and are prepared for any eventuality! The version numbers I see on the Asus site don't tally with the one I see in the report, so I can't recommend which one to go for.
     
    1) Chipset
    2) Graphics -  install ONLY the VGA driver at this stage
    3) Audio
    4) Updated LAN
    I'd leave the rest well alone, unless you have the need for them
    This should get your system up and running at its design speed without installing a lot of fluff that you may well never use (and half of which I wouldn't want to touch<g>)
     
    Once you've got a fully-functional system, then you can worry about tweaking it till it breaks - after you've made a system image so that you can restore it when it all turns to rat droppings.

  • Thanks for that Noel, fingers crossed.

    Wish me luck, I'll be back on sometime tomorrow'ish (hopefully)

    What was that about turning BIOS protection off?

    Graham

    In a lot of BIOS there's some form of anti-tamper protection, to prevent certain things getting altered by malware (such as the MBR, or the BIOS itself). This has been considered redundant for a while and is getting less common.
    From what I can see, your board doesn't have any such thing, apart from the disabled-by-default disk protection, which you should leave at its default setting.

  • Hi Noel

    ok, heres what I've found on bios

    using this, http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&root=252 my bios on board  are: rev. 1.01G but system bios are saying I'm using '1003' ?

    so is this the right page for bios & am I correct in thinking it is the top download?

    http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us this is not bringing up right page, I followed: motherboard, lg1156, P7P55 LX, O/S = windows764 bit

    & as long as I follow this http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?root=198&SLanguage=en-us ok, this link does not work but using: Asus EZ flash to update

    all should be ok, right?Using ASUS EZ Flash to Update BIOS

    Probably best thing to do - I had the  same problem as you in matching the BIOS versions when I tried.

  • Hi Noel, heres where I am now. I haven't has a reply from ASUS tech, but looking at BIOS, they work date wise from oldest at the bottom of page to newest at the top, since 1003 version came out on 27th aug 2010 & newest came out on 18th nov 2010, the date I brought my board, I'm thinking, they couldnt ship my motherboard from china to uk in one day, so I reckon BIOS are right.

    I have tried to format HD but windows won't let me, another clean install, not activated, validated or updated at the mo, only thing installed is kaspersky internet security. I havent installed any drivers & everything is working. No drivers installed yet.

    I take it, that I'm going to need to get usb caddy to boot system off old xp HD to format this disc, but I'll run diagnostic again.

    Thanks Noel, I haven't installed any drivers yet & it all seems to be working? Do I need to?

    Do I still need to format HD?

    Did you advise I make a rescue disc, & would now be a good time?

    What is a SLIC table?

    Thanks for all your help

    There's no point in reformatting - it looks as if it's already been done.
    Yes, you need to install drivers and suchlike, or you'll not get anything like the best performance out of your PC.
    Now is always the best time to make the Rescue Disks, if you get the option! <g>
    SLIC tables are the means by which OEM's ensure that the licenses they generate for Windows are only used on PC's that they manufacture - the wrong SLIC table on a PC will result in a non-genuine notification if the Windows install is not from the correct stock.
     
    HTH - and good luck
