My previous post here represented too much drinking last night. Send a private message to Drastikpup1. And the new A7V Your best bet is to get rid of the motherboard and sell it to a Gamer or return it. Personally, I have no idea what they are talking about. At the point in the process where this is message is coming up, Pro Tools simply can’t get access to the PCI card.

ASUS A7AE – VIA KTA Motherboard Roundup – January

Dave, Periodically I’ll see this message when I forget to turn off a piece of software. Hey Mark, Well, I think you’re the only one who thinks that it could work with that board! But it wasn’t worth the aa7266-e week of my time tinkering with it when I knew I could grab something else that’s been proven to work in less than 10 minutes.

There may be some miracle cure or obscure setting that may make it work, but to date nobody has found it. I wish I would have been able to cut you off the pass before purchasing the A7A.

ASUS A7A – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – ALiMAGiK 1 Overview – CNET

Anyway, there are you basic choices. Page 1 of 2. Dave, If your anywhere near San Jose, drop by my house and we’ll see if I can’t make it work!


I may have to look into this A7VE board. The Ali Magic Chipset hates the Digi There’s a lot of ways it will show up. You may try reading the “PT Performance” thread where users posted their own testing results with various motherboards and chipsets. Ass all posts by davecool.

I have never seen a post were the AMD chipset would not boot. The time now is My previous post here represented too much drinking last night. Bet I could get it going!

Best way to approach this problem is to remove ALL cards except video from the system and go through a clean install.

So I think I’m going to try and exchange for the A7M and see what happens. I actually stumbled upon it being a bad board the Digi because purchasing made a mistake on customers order and ordered the A7A instead of the A7M so I tested out for a week and couldn’t get it to work. It barely wanted to work at all and ProTools never worked once. The Pentium motherboards with certain chipset’s work good to. Thats bad news, because several people previous to you have tried this motherboard and all have failed to get their systems up and running.


I’ve got an Asus A7V that works great. Find all posts by Drastikpup1. I get the same message.

Personally, I have no idea what they are talking about. So, you can keep trying, or get another motherboard.

VIA KT266A Motherboard Roundup – January 2002

Asus a7a switch to a7v Hey everyone, I’m having problems getting Pro Tools to load. One other way you can get this message is if you don’t put the card in the PCI slot, but I’m sure you didn’t forget to do that! It can happen for multiple reasons, but this isn’t about DMA or any of the other normal setup problems, it’s about too much stuff happening on the PCI bus and the system thinking it can’t get to the card.

If it’s USB based, then this could be your problem too. This is considered one of the soujd “mixed chipsets” on the Digi known incompatibility list. You will not go wrong with these motherboards that I mentioned.
