Question about ASUS AI Lifestylestyle M2N-SLI Deluxe (ASUM2NSLIDELUXE) Motherboard

1 Answer

M2N-SLI Motherboard issue.

I boot up the computer and of course it is all set to default. So I go into bios, setup time, date, devices, yadda yadda yadda. Go to save and exit. Everything reboots fine until halfway thru post. Then the screen goes black. Only way I can get computer to boot is without the battery. Which boots fine again until I change settings in the bios and then it happens again. Machine only works with default settings and no battery.

Ram is (2) OCZ PC2 6400 Nvidia SLI Ready 1GB Dual Ch 4-4-4 1T

Please please please someone help :(

Hi

If your computer was ok before you changed parameters in Bios then it is Bios fault:
Re inter Bios and Try to reset it to default.
If you can not get into Bios anymore  the problem is serious:
You must reflash Bios or reset Cmos ,and it could be vga or may be the wifi if you have one onboard.
see if you have a hardware store nearby and let someone fix it
if you .
It seems to be a common problem on all Asus Motherboards:
bios,vga,post etc...

Bios rom checksum error, boot block bios vI.0


Error BIOS ROM CHECKSUM - SYSTEM HALTED.
Cause Bad Hardware
Solution Unfortunately this indicates that your computer BIOS ROM chip or Motherboard is physically bad. It is recommended that you contact your computer manufacturer or take the computer into local service center for repair.
If you wish to repair this issue yourself the motherbard will need to be replaced.
This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.

You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values hopefully against a recent


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.

This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.


During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
You will also need to set the time and date

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
hope this helps you

Won't boot; now no video


Hi rwbta, from your description it sounds like a bios issue.
The bios only displays: (Press the Delete key for setup) when there is a problem with a device.
(Hard disk drive, video device, over clocking settings, ECT). After resetting the bios (As you have done), display should resume. Since it did not suggest you plug the monitor into the second VGA or DVI port on the graphics card & check for display. Try another monitor, (Just to be sure). If you are running in SLI, disconnect the primary PCI express card (Blue slot) & replace it with the second PCI express card. Boot the system & check for display. No display? Move to the second port on the card & check for display. Still no display? Than it is possible your bios may be corrupt.
You can buy a new updated bios directly from Asus estore online, click this link;
http://estore.asus.com/shop/ There are currently 217 pages to search through in order to find the bios chip for the M2N-E SLI board. (Your board is still under warranty).
You can save time by calling Asus tech at; 1-812-282-2787 & talk with a tech. If you choose to do so please write down the S/N found on the parallel port. The tech will want this & check to see if the board is still in warranty. After a short talk with the tech he or she may include another suggestion or you can just ask for an updated bios chip. In either case be sure to get a case number. The average cost for a bios chip is $5.00 not including shipping. Since this board is still in warranty this item should be free for you. Asus store hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 AM. To 6:00 PM PST, excluding weekends and / or holidays.

Good luck rwbta!

Setting up SATA


You need to enter the bios. Use the M2N-E SLI manual to help make some changes. Start up the PC & begin to press the Delete key every two seconds. Doing this will open the bios. Open you're manual to page 4-29. All four SATA's should be set to Disable. Save & exit the bios. The SATA drives will still function but you should no longer get the screen to setup a RAID.

Enjoy!

Asus m2n-e sli Cpu changed settings on boots up


I could not find BIOS ver. 1302 for the M2N-E Mb. What I do know: Your dual core 4200 showing up as "unknown". Asus says:
This is because the BIOS does not have the relative CPU uCode to support this processor. Please simply update your BIOS to version 0902 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0902 can be downloaded from the link below:
http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socketAM2/M2N-E%20SLI/0902.zip

Once you cpu shows up correctly, chances are that your over clocking will work and the bios will stop sending you back to change your settings.

Failure to boot after several hours of operation


assuming you set the date and time, the error message checksum can refer to incorrect memory timings along with the front side bus speeds, so check the processor bus speed eg 533MHZ or whatever and check the memory speed as if they are different you wont get it to boot, you will need to reset the bios if you cannot get it to run at all.
