Question about Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 Motherboard

Southbridge is extremely hot, and xp will not install

I just got this board from newegg, and set it up only a few days ago. When I went to install XP on it, it starts throwing BSOD's like "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and crap... when I poked around inside the case, my hand grazed the southbridge and I discovered that it is WAY too hot, but no scorching smell at all. And explain this... after leaving the computer off all night, I got up this morning and put my hand on the southbridge... it was warm. Everything else in the case was stark cold, except for that chip. By process of elimination, I have determined that the memory, hard drive, and CD ROM aren't the problem. I don't have the option of returning this board... I was an idiot and threw away all the proof of ownership. Is it possible to just install a fan on the southbridge, like the northbridge has, and let it slide? Please help.

Hi drummer, It shouldn't be running that hot so I suspect the motherboards defective and probably damaged even more due to being exposed to excessive heat. Getting rid of your packing material does not void your warranty nor remove all your options. Try calling Foxxon support and let them walk you through the process making sure you get the techs name. They are more inclined to be pleasant and helpful if you know and it, are nice and use the name occasionally in the conversation just like you were carrying out a conversation with someone you know. If you have a dated receipt they will honor your warranty. If you don't have the receipt the board should have a manufacturing code on it that indicates the date made. Unless the board has been sitting on a shelf for a year you should still be able to get a warranty replacement from them. They will ship the replacement to you but may want to charge your credit card for the replacement and credit your account once they receive the defective board. This is common and it is to prevent you from keeping both boards. If they insist on you're sending the board out first or if you can't do the credit card thing just explain your situation to the tech. I've generally found the original packing material is only necessary when returning to a retailer. If the tech give you a hard time just politely ask his/her name and to speak to the supervisor. Another thing to note is that the replacement you receive will be a *refurbished* part. I personally have no problems with them since they will continue to honor whatever warranty your original board had left. Let us know if you have any other questions on this topic and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

About windows setup


Hi niket_shah, sorry but you're board Asus M2N-MX, does support Win XP SP2.
Chances are that while installing windows updates one or more updates failed. People like myself know from repairing PC's which updates need to be installed first. If you're Win XP SP2 did not or would not install than either the Win CD is not a valid Microsoft Win XP SP2 CD or (You have a copy) & there is something wrong with the CD. After a fresh (New install) of Win XP with SP2 there is more than 90+ updates for SP2 which must be downloaded through windows update program. Or you're windows will not function properly.
Just to show you what versions of windows the M2N-MX board does support. Click the link listed below. Once the link loads click the + sign next to Audio. Scroll down the page an notice the different Window version listed for you're board.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-MX&SLanguage=en-us
To recap this issue. The problem is either the WinCD or possibly you're hard drive. Make sure you allow windows to perform a full format before installing window. (Not a quick format).

Vista OS


It does not work with vista at least not for me. And besides with XP and Vista you shouldn't have to install it anyway as both OS's have a feature called plug and play which means that when you plug it in via a USB port Windows Xp automatically recognize it and its driver. Thats one thing about XP thats so great XP just about recognizes every joystick and game pad driver there is without installing the pads software.

Vista problem


Any XP installation disk will format your hard drive. All you have to do is boot the XP installation disk and follow the prompts. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE YOU CAN'T GO BACK! unfortunately you can't recover on OS that you've overwritten... And if you could you wouldn't want to. You need an install disk, which Compaq should provide for you.
