    I have researched several threads on this subject, some say the board requires a bios flash to the latest bios, another said start it wit 1 gig and see if it starts, then add the additional ram after the board boots up. I would try the ram trick first, in the interim I will poke around and see what else I can find. I am using an asusA8n32- sli deluxe myself so it intrests me as well since I was looking at your board as a possible replacement, good luck and let me know if the ram trick works.

It's mismatched ram, get a stick or two from another machine, or a buddy, and try theirs out before spending money, it either blew of is the wrong speed, it appears that everyone is in unison on this, Good luck,Gym

"...refuses to boot vista AFTER (my emphsis) i install 6 gbs of memory?"

This portion of your question pretty much answers itself. The failure occurs AFTER you install more RAM. Therefore it's virtually a certainty the exact cause is either BAD RAM (as your web-thread poster correctly advised how to troubleshoot), or INCOMPATIBLE RAM (as "JSGRepair" detailed).

Good luck.

I think you are mixing ram.... Use the same make and module for your ram... when you mix ram, the problem is other ram can be difernt Voltage. some 1.9V, 1.8V, 2.0V, 2.2V to operate. If you have 1.8V and 2.0V the computer won't boot. Hope this helps.

Hi iimarceloii, did you check the FAQ section on Asus web site?
Using Vista 32bit/64bit edition or win XP;
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N32-SLI%20Premium%20VISTA%20Edition&os=24
Basically Asus wants you to use 2GB of memory until windows has been completely installed & completely updated before you can add more memory to the system.
Than you can increase your memory to 6BG. To see all the FAQ's from Asus, click on this link; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Type: M2N32-SLI into the search window & click the arrow button.

Good luck iimarceloii!

I hear 1 long and 2 short beeps and there is nothing on monitor


Hi Friend, I believe according to the beep codes you mentioned, it might be the issue with the graphics card!, So I would request you that if it is a desktop system, open up d cabinet and if there is graphic card inserted in the graphic card slot try reseating it.
That might fix the issue
Please let me know if it was of some help!

My asus m2n32-sli motherboard won't start up; runs for 4 seconds then shuts off. currently hooked up to the mobo: have a 500W power supply; AMD 3300 64 processor; zalman cpu fan; 2 patriot 2GB DDR2...


The only thing i can suggest is remove one of your RAM sticks and see if the machine will boot. I had this problem with mine and it turned out that one of my RAM slots was faulty and would not boot if both RAM slots had RAM in them.

*Wireless capability will automatically be on as lon as you have a wireless adapater or a wireless card or a built in Wireless in your motherboard that is properly installed to your computer

*you can check if the wireless card is properly install go to start - control panel network and sharing center and @ the left part of the window try to check if you will find Manage Wireless Network if not then the driver is not installed

*the driver of the wireless adater usually can be downloaded on the manufacturers website :)
