Question about ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard

Worked great until last night....

Home built machine has worked great for 14+ months. Was running last night, playing World of Warcraft when the system just froze. At first I thought it was game lag, until I noted no response from mouse or keyboard input. Pressed the power button for 5 sec, and it turned off. Upon reapplication of power, the only response was from the peripherals and fans; no screen output, or beeps.

Web surfing guided me to reset the CMOS and go, without explanation of the root cause.

While I am able to get the machine to boot after resetting the CMOS and loading the default BIOS settings, I don't wish to do that for every boot, but it is the only reliable process I've found.

What has failed on my system? What should I investigate/replace?

I had same problem but updated the bios seems okay now also go into bios and set all as default and exit saving this seemed to help even before i updated bios.
These boards are not that good in my opinion for the price

Computer wont turn at all worked fine the night before moniter works no lights dvd door wont open

if the unit worked last night and now it will not turn on then it's one of two issues. first we need to look at the unit are there lights or can you hear a fan running . if so your motherboatrd has failed , and the fact that most dell mobo's have intergrated video you couldn't see anything at that point. two if there is no lights or fans running and you can not open any drives then your power supply has filed . decide witch one and let me know if you dell is still under warranty i can call and do a warranty claim and get them to send parts and a tech if not give me the service tag number and I can find part numbers for you . hope this helps

Intel D865GLC computer problems.

Go back to what started the problem. You bought 2 1 gig ram sticks. My bet is they're either not matched ram that matches what you already had in your computer or is not compatible with your motherboard or the ram is defective and has bad memory addresses. If your computer has build in video card then it probably gets it's video ram from the system ram. A lot of the blue screens of death are caused by bad memory address although it can look like it's blaming the problem on a certain program or device driver because that is the program or driver that was atempting to use the bad memory address.

After purchasing a new Motherboard, my computer jsut seems to power down after about 20 mins playing games on it. Other than that it is ok.

It definately sounds like a heat issue.

Did you use the thermal paste to heat sink? Make sure your fans are all running. Make sure the heat sink is snapped tight to the processor.

I would suggest a system monitor to detect heat and speed of fans.

Start the computer and keep tapping F8 key
When the menu comes up scroll to the last good configuration that worked and press enter.
Hopefully that will work.

Intel d865perl sound card drivers

left click this link & choose you're operating system for the Intel D865PERL motherboard drivers. (Reinstall the driver software).
For windows XP/home & pro. Click on this link;*+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21
After reinstalling the software & you're sound does not seem better than the built in sound chip may be going bad.
Other factors can also cause the effects you are having. Run windows system defrag. Also run windows Disk cleanup. These tools are found in windows System tools. Lastly you can buy & add a PCI sound card into an emty PCI slot to bypass the built in sound card. If you choose to do this you will need to enter the bios & disable the built in sound device.

Good Luck!
