It may be possible that the memory that you are trying to use may not be completly compatible with the architecture of the motherboard, if you are using Win XP SP2 you will need a minimum of 512 Mb mem otherwise it will run slowly (especially if running norton AV or Mcafee AV)

It would be a good Idea to buy replacement memory, as the compatibility of the memory you are trying to use is in question.

Kingston memory have a "configurator" which ensures that you get the correct memory for their board, and their memory has a lifetime warranty.

SOURCE: RAM error with RAM Installed


The problem clearly isn't a video sharing as I was originally suspecting.
First let me inform you that even your upgrades are several generations behind the current mainstream, Not a problem as long as they are sufficient for your needs. I don't know about the CPU but the Video card is no longer supported by ATI.

Ok lets get down to the Nitty Gritty

First lets remove ALL of your cards from the PC
Video card, any PCI cards and if you have them even the ISA cards
Now remove the ram modules and the CPU

OK we should be starting with a bare Motherboard
Check to make sure that all of the power connections are attached in this case it should be a single 20 pin ATX connector

With that done make sure the IDE connectors are oriented properly there is a notch on the drives connectors that lines up with a key on the ribbon cable.

make sure this cable fully seats into the Motherboard and the drives connector(Try to route the cables so that they are tucked out of the way if possible)

Now repeat the procedure with the floppy drives ribbon cable and connector (If applicable)

Inspect the CPU make sure the heatsink and Fan are attached and mounted Flush to the CPU card
Now insert the CPU into the Slot1 making sure to pay attention to orientation. If I read right you replaced the processor with one of the same speed? if so you don't need to mess with the jumpers that are onboard for the CPU.

If it DOES need a different FSB setting the open up the user manual(Link below if you no longer have it) and find and set the appropriate settings

attach the CPU fan leads to the proper header on the Motherboard

Now check out the RAM slots, there are 2 latches at either end of each slot. Don't put the ram in yet move the latches into an upright position. The should be firm in place you should NOT be able to wiggle them. If there is some PLAY in them we might have just found your ram problem. These latches sometimes jar a little bit up and thus PREVENT the ram modules from seating properly. Any latches that had some PLAY in them just give them a bit of downward pressure (Don't have to FORCE them) until you here and/or feel it click back into place. Now fold down the latches and insert the SDRAM cards once in place fold the latches up until they LOCK into place and hold the ram steady. If any SLOTs are empty fold their latches up too (There are little sensors under these latch arms, that if ANY are down it prevents the Rams address bus from energizing to protect any improperly seated modules)

Now insert your Video card, If there is a latch at the back of the AGP slot make sure that engages properly (Don't worry if there is not one SOME of the older ones didn't have them) just make sure the card seats down all the way into its slot.

Now install any other cards I had you previously remove from the system install any wires from the front panel header that might have been removed or jarred loose, make sure that your case fans are attached to their headers.

I think your ready to give it a try NOW.
When you boot up it may pause asking you to confirm a memory checksum error as the Memory level should be different from the LAST time it boot press what button is says to do so to continue. After the ASUS logo blinks off screen press <Delete> to enter BIOS make sure the Video card setting is for AGP and not PCI press <F10> to save and exit.

This SHOULD have you up and running if not comment back and I'll try to assist you further.

For your information the last Generation of Winows supported with drivers for this board are Me/NT/ and 2000

When you are next ready to upgrade I would recommend getting a more modern motherboard with integrated graphics (If cost is an issue at the time) It will improve your upgrade and support options

Hopefully this helps you

I flashed the bios on my Asus motherboard M2N-E, and then replaced the processor with a quad. Cleared the cmos and now the computer won't post? What do I need to do to get it up and running again?

Try to put back the old procie, if it runs again that means the new procie is not compatible with board.
Read the manual for the compatibilty issue for your MoBo.
Tell me if it works.

Asus M2N / Antec SP-350

Things to try:

1. Check that the cpu fan is properly connected to the correct port marked CPU FAN.

2. Make sure the power cables are connected correctly to the motherboard.

3. Test the button switch with a multi-tester to make sure that it tests good.

4. Make sure the power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard.

5. With the computer off pop the cr2032 battery out and pop it back in after a few minutes.

6. Test the power supply with either another motherboard or a power supply tester.

7. Test the motherboard with another power supply.

8. If all else fails replace the motherboard I have had a bad one from time to time even out of the box, and if you have a spare cpu you may want to test with that also. Cpu's hardly ever go bad I think I have had two go bad ever, not counting power surges and storm damage.

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.

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:

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.

Sata/raid not working on ASUS M2N MB

You may need to set up the RAID array before it will be detected. Look in the BIOS and see if there is a way to set up the RAID array there. If there isn't, watch as the PC boots up and see if there is an option to go into the RAID settings before windows starts. You may need to actually create an array before it will be seen.
