Asus P5N-E SLI Motherboard and Ethernet Controller Problem

I'm using a P5N-E SLI Motherboard, ever since I installed my EVGA GTS 250 graphics card my nForce ethernet controller hasn't worked. I finally got the hardware conflicts to stop in device manager between my PCI devices. I double checked my power supply and made sure the proper lead was attached to the graphics card. I've reformatted my computer and updated bios as well. Device Manager says both the graphics card and the ethernet controller are working properly. However, I tested the ethernet cord in my laptop and it was able to establish a connection immediately. When I plug it back into my computer the ethernet jack has a yellow and orange light and will give me the message ''limited or no connectivity''. I don't have another graphics card to see if it's the problem. I've also updated to the latest drivers.

Had a similar problem with P5ne-sli motherboard, Intel Q6600 cpu, Nvidia GTS 8800 video card. One day the ethernet just stopped working, but it was working... It would connect to my network but would see "limited or no connectivity" in the taskbar. Went into BIOS and looked at the signals and for some reason only 4 of the 8 signals were getting a reading. Figured a power spike had fried my onboasrd ethenet card. Switched to an old PCI ethernet card... after two years I was doing a fresh install, of XP and for shits and giggles I just plugged the ethernet cord into the onboard with the PCI ethernet card removed. When windows went to validate it detected and installed my onboard ethernet...validated then proceeded to update windows. Over a year later it still works.
Never bothered to update BIOS until last month and that was only to fix the long boot time with ATI 5770 video card.
Willing to bet that resetting your BIOS will fix the problem for you. Just unplug computer, remove battery, attempt power up to clear any juice still in the system. Replace battery and boot up computer...
Also removed a DIMM that went bad around the same time. May have been a factor so try testing your RAM.

I have a p5n sli motherboard which refuses to boot


Go to page 2-30 section 2.4.5 in your manual.
If you are using the onboard graphics for your display set this to [PCI]. If you are using the PCI-E video card, set the bios to [PCI-E]. Save & exit the bios. You should have display after the system re-boots. If you still have no display & you are 100% sure your monitor functions than the video controller on the board is bad. This can not be repaired.

Good luck!

Asus a8n sli premium


From the Asus support site.

If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory.

P5N-SLI


HI stukove2000,
What is the 5200 stand for?
Here is Asus approved CPU list link for the P5N-E SLI MB:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5N-E%20SLI

The Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 5-5-5-15, should work just fine on the Asus MB.
Here is an expanded approved Qualified Venders List from Asus.
http://www.asus.com/999/download/products/1474/1474_10.pdf
You can also see a smaller QVL list in the manual on page 1-18 & 1-19.
The QVL insures total compatibility with the motherboard.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT will run just fine on the Asus MB. Just make sure your power supply is no less than 500W. A 600W or 650W is preferred.

Here is a write up of the Asus mother board: http://www.techspot.com/review/43-asus-p5n-e-sli/
Asus FAQ's of the P5N-E SLI. Good place to check questions about the board.

Can I run two EVGA GeForce 260 GTS cards in crossfire on an ASUS Rampage MOBO?


This is an excellent question, basically "Can you run two Nvidia cards on a cross fire motherboard in a SLI configuration". My first thought was "No" but you should be able to still run a single Nvidia card.

From everything that I have collected the above is correct. Here is a reputable site that you can trust which has a spill on whether you can do this: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/246903-33-nvidia-graphics-card-crossfire-motherboard
