    Have you tried your CPU with another motherboard? You made need to update the bios. If it is an older version of the bios that processor might not work.

The only solution to this is to flash bios with the latest version, i had this problem twice, when i upgraded processors. if you havent got a lower spec processor, try taking it back to where you bought it and ask them to do it

I bought asus m3a78-cm board with via on board audio, with vista no problem occurred but with window 7 the problem started. everytime i on my pc, i will install again the audio driver. the problem repeated...


is this windows 7 32-bit OR 64-bit
you will need 64 drivers for all your hardware if you have migrated from a 32 to 64 bit operating system.
Windows7 64 bit still has some major bugs with certain sound cards.
Asus has updated drivers available at thier website, but they dont have them for all hardware, just the most current.
Hope this helps, post again if i can answer any more questions..
Regards!

Procesor speed


Well, I would start by going to the ASUS web page and look up your specific motherboard. Here is the link right to the board---

http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=117&l3=0&l4=0&model=1283&modelmenu=2

the specs listed at ASUS's site don't say specifically"how many Gz processor can my mothereboard suport" although they will point you in the right direction. Open up the site on a seperate internet page if you haven't already and look at if for me. Do you notice where it mentions the Socket types that it supports in the CPU section?? Basically the page is telling you what type of processors it will run. I believe the Athlon 64 x2 is the fastest out of what they have listed, although i did not look up the specs. You should be safe buying any speed Athlon 64 x2, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 or Sempron processor. Hope that this was helpful, if it was could you please give me a good review? Thanks.

Computer won't turn on.


This sounds like an overheat problem, is your cooling fan working properly, also the processor you are using is a powerful one, so needs a cooling fan much more powerful than the lesser powered athlon 64 processors.

Computer won't boot up


Make sure that your power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. The LED you see lit may be the stand-by power indicator saying it has power and is waiting for the signal from the power switch.

Motherboard Issue


Hi Tomokato,
This maybe nothing but the first thing I checked is the CPU.
Supported CPU list through Asus web site for M2N-SLI
(Click on this link). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-SLI
The first supported 64 X2 is;
Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (CU),512K,65W,rev.F2,SocketAM2
Second CPU supported;
Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (DD),1MB,65W,rev.G,SocketAM2

The CPU that you are using is not supported.
Since this is a new CPU, you might be able to exchange it for the Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (CU),512K,65W,rev.F2,SocketAM2.
Link to Asus main web site for M2N-SLI.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-SLI&SLanguage=en-us
Suggest you add the above link to you're favorites.

Even you're memory is not supported. As seen in user manual page. 2-13.

Have more questions, feel free to ask.
