ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard Serial Number Location?
I bought this board as an "open box" item. I need to know the serial number and can't find it on the board. I was at the ASUS website for help and they said to look on the side of the box it came in. It did not come in the retail box they referred to so I'm stuck. I am assuming that it must also be on the board somewhere. Some numbers I've seen and tried have been rejected by the ASUS website. Anyone know where I might find this?
Re: ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard Serial Number...
I have a system with an ASUS A7v8x-x motherboard that I got second-hand, and the ASUSTeK website is a real pain when it comes to researching drivers and utilities, and they require registering the product for "member" features in forums and product updates...Anyway, like nray53 I needed to find the serial number which none of my system utilities are able to read. I found the sticker on my board and can confirm what jomabug76 said: on my board, if you follow the power supply leads to the ATX connector near the edge of the board, the sticker along the edge of the board parallel to the ATX connector, on the edge closest to the disc drives. The format on mine is: A12B345-67890-12-C3D456-E78

You do not need the serial number to download the video driver, but you need the motherboard number, this is printed on the motherboard.
You can download the drivers from ASUS WEB site. Selectyour model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select the Windows XPor Vista version of the drivers that matches your Windows operating system.Please click on this link to their WEB support site : -
The serial number is normally on the box it comes in but it will appear as a decal on the motherboard itself. since the location changes by motherboard type it is virtually impossible to say it is at a specific location. It will be on the chip side of the board and maybe be preceded by S/N. Having said all of that I have never found a situation where the motherboard serial number was used for anything in any application.
All ASUS motherboard purchased after November 1st, 1999 will carry 3 year warranty services. ASUS product warranty is based on the serial number printed.
Note: Warranty void for user removing serial number sticker on the motherboard .
If you want to repair it you'll need to take it back to the place that you purchased it from.
However, I have a suggestion first before returning it.
Take the new parts off and put the old ones back on, it the computer boots, then it's something about the new parts that are either not compatible, or they weren't installed correctly. You should check with ASUS.com and see if they support that PSU voltage and that video card first, because it's a nice board.
Here's the configuration for that board. If your trying to overclock, you'll want to go with a higher setting.
