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.

    In that case it is a faulty motherboard, beneath the processor socket are a series of small temperature sensors which sometimes malfuncfunction. Suggest that if the board is new, you should return it under a "Faulty under warranty " return basis.

    One other option to confirm the problem will be to fit a lower spec' cpu if you have one knocking around to test it under that platform.

M2NPV-VM - Fastest Processor?


If ASUS says that is the fastest that will work on the board, then they should know. Incidentally processors don't run at 95 volts although some run at a power consumption of 95 watts. Besides there is not a faster AM2 CPU than the one you mention.

Everything should be fine there in installing Windows 2000 on that computer with a Athlon processor. Just make sure you have all the drivers for your computer including the MOBO, video card and others.

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.

Athlon 64x2 5200+ to Athlon (black edition)64x2 7750


ok
it's compatibel with any athlon processor
but not the black edition one

well, the problem maybe your chipset is not compatible with the black edition processor
second, let's think your chipset is compatible, but your bios don't. then you must to flash your bios with updated bios
and third, your black edition processor is broken

please rate and gimme more specific specification of your mobo

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.
