Hi, you can download a manual here:


Please select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global.
Unzip the file before you can read it.
Upgrade the other drivers if some missing.
Run also windows update.

You may have to disable the onboard graphic in the bios.
You can also try to upgrade the bios by using the
asus upgrade utility.

The graphic card must be a PCI-E socket.
I guess the old driver is making a conflict as it is the same brand.

And download the latest driver for your graphic card here:

Apparently yes. To determine that for sure boot in Safe Mode and run it there - the drivers will not be loaded so if it stops you will know it's a hardware problem.

i dont if you mean your graphics card or you cant see it this might be a driver issue

Want to make sure your drivers are in place and no errors have occurred? Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small "+" you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it. If you don't see it everything is OK and your card is working properly.

If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question exclamation mark ? mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers if you don

the RAM you have ut into your computer is faulty and causing the system to do a beeping noise by removing the ram stick you have put in will stop the beeping sound, Depending on how many ram sticks you have put in your computer it could be just a single faulty ram stick try removing them one by one and rebooting your system as it could be just the one, if after removing them one by one the sound still happens you will have to buy a new stick of ram to get your computer up and running, Let me know the outcome of this using the comment box , Kronoguy

are you running it in dual channel?

ASUS P5RD2-VM... | Answered on May 12, 2011

If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory. You can check below URLs for reference:
hope this helps
