Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have just built my first desktop PC using an ASUS M2N32-SLI Delux Wireless Edition Motherboard. Unfortunately the Motherboard came without the support CD containing drivers etc. I do have the user guide manual but being new to this game I have little technical knowledge re BIOS etc and I am struggling to understand the initial setup/start up instructions in the manual. Do I in fact need the support CD? I have been to the ASUS download website but found it very confusing as various "versions" of BIOS/drivers etc are mentioned which mean nothing to me. Can I go straight to installing the operating system and bybass the support CD. I am unsure what to do and do not want to ruin through blind ignorance the nice PC which I have built. I have opted for the Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64bit OEM System Builder Pack. Is this system compatible with this Motherboard? Any help would be appreciated as I do not want to mess up my PC at this stage. Thanks in anticipation. Roger

1. Do I in fact need the support CD?

You dont need the support cd, although you might have to update your drivers for your sound card, network card, or wireless card (IF they dont work) from the asus website http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N32-SLI%20Deluxe

2. Can I go straight to installing the operating system and bybass the support CD?

Yes you can. Go into the BIOS and change the boot option to boot from cd first and this will boot from your windows vista cd.

3. Is this system compatible with this Motherboard?

Yes it is compatible with your motherboard.

I'm looking for a copy of a install disk for a ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard that I can download.


I assume that you are looking for the ASUS drivers, utilities, etc. You can go to http://www.asus.com and select service, support, motherboards, and enter your data to get to your model and select to download drivers. If you are looking for an operating system install disk you have to go buy that.

My m2n32-sli premium vista edition motherboard refuses to boot up when i put 6 gbs of memory. How do i solve this issue?


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!
Merry xMiss
