This board has been known to have some issues, the Asus' PEG optimizations aren't fully supported by some video cards like the Gigabyte GeForce 6600 GT. One example of a fully supporting video card is the Asus Extreme Radeon EAX1900XTX. If possible, try using a different video card (one that supports Asus' PEG optimizations - PEG Link Mode overclocking feature; PEG Link for single/dual graphics cards
). Or you may want to try and disable the PEG entirely.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
Your SLI drivers as you mentioned were installed when your chipset drivers were installed. (NVIDIA nForce CK804 Chipset Driver). If you use 1 PCI-E graphics card the bios will need to be adjusted to [Auto]. Using 2 PCI-E graphics cards you must install the EZ selector card correctly. See page 4-20 section 4.4 Adjust; SLI Configuration. Than see section 4.4.6 in your manual Open the Asus link below if you need drivers for your M2N-E SLI; http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=M2N-E%20SLI This may seem a bit tricky but its not. First time around the bios settings using SLI graphics cards will appears tough but you'll get it. Cheers! Mike
Hi there One Long and Two Short Beeps = Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue. If you are using a PCI Express graphics card remove it and use the on-board VGA/DVI port If it is the on-board graphics you are using clear the cmos <<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted.
As per ur question, this problem occures due to following reason:
1. When ur data cable of ur monitor is bad : Try another data cable this causes only to blink LED of ur monitor which not allows any graphics to display.
2. Your RAM can also be responsible for this problem: If your RAM goes Bad then it doesnot allow any graphics file to load and thus causing not to display anything on ur monitor screen as well as ur system keep restart at POST (Power On Self Test) Operation (When VRAM driver is not loaded.
and the last reason is:
3. Your system is not able to recognise your Graphics card due to Either IRQ inteferance or ur graphics card hardware problem (caused due to bad of VRAM installed on ur graphics card): Remove ur graphics card from expansion slot (PCI-E/AGP)and then plug monitor data cable to normal serial port available in the motherboard (Resides back side of ur system).
Hi DarkPredUK. You need to check you're bios. (See below). The PCI-E card (Single video card) must be placed into slot, PCIEX16_1 as shown on page 2-3 & 2-18 in you're user manual. The bios must be set correctly as seen on page 4-26 to PCI-E first. You must have two PCI-E cards installed to run SLI mode. (They must be exactly the same graphic cards). Asus M2N-E SLI main web site/drivers, manual ect. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-E%20SLI&SLanguage=en-us
Good luck DarkPredUK. Need more info? Post it here or click the Ask Me.
If your CPU or memory were an issue your Asus board would sound off with BIOS beeps. Asus uses the Award BIOS & you can see what these beeps mean at the link below. Regaurding your PC not able to boot is an issue with your PCIE/PEG video card-in relationship with BIOS setting & the SLI switch card mode that came with your board. When running 1PEG video card you must set this in the BIOS to Auto & you need your SLI switch card connected in its slot. By default, the EZ Selector card is set for a single graphic card. When you install dual PCIE graphic cards on A8N-SLI series motherboards, please make sure EZ Selector card set to the Dual Video Card side and properly inserted. Link to Award Bios beep codes: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Will come in handy.
Reading the FAQ's at Asus site will help you better understand your A8N-SLI Deluxe. You'll need to fill in the, "Please Select the Product" first: http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.
What's the specs on your power supply. For SLI you need a good quality 500W+ PSU with lots of current on the 12V rails. Remember that all the drives, memory, fans, cpu, etc will use a lot of power, if there is not enough capability in your PSU, the voltage may drop low enough to stop it starting up.
