ASUS M2N E SLI Boot and Audio Problems

Hi there, this is a new build with Vista premium 32 bit. When I start up the machine it boots fine, but anytime i try a restart,(from bios or from Windows) the system restarts and then Freezes at the boot screen with no resources coming up and not being able to goto the bios. Also in Vista my onboard sound is really wierd. Any tests make all the sound come out the left speaker and nothing comes out any other speakers. (5.1 setup)
If anyone can help please do. It is much appreciated.

Open your case, right below the sound inputs is a jumper set. Pull the jumper off and read the side of the jumper. I bet it says HD Audio, this board will not support HD audio, switch it to the AC97 jumper. That will fix your audio problems....Enjoy

My asus m2n32-sli motherboard won't start up; runs for 4 seconds then shuts off. currently hooked up to the mobo: have a 500W power supply; AMD 3300 64 processor; zalman cpu fan; 2 patriot 2GB DDR2...

The only thing i can suggest is remove one of your RAM sticks and see if the machine will boot. I had this problem with mine and it turned out that one of my RAM slots was faulty and would not boot if both RAM slots had RAM in them.

Is there a chip set for windows vista home premium 32 bit. When I bought my computer I had Vista installed on it and my computer constantly crashed. I had a guy fix my computer, said there was no chipsets...

The chipset (nForce 500) is soldered on the motherboard, it can't be changed. The problems you encountered were probably caused by bad drivers. If you choose to reinstall Vista don't use the driver's disk that came with the pc, get the latest ones from here
But if you have the money you should buy Windows 7 , it's much better than Vista.

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;
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;
Type: M2N32-SLI into the search window & click the arrow button.

Good luck iimarceloii!
Merry xMiss

Once installed Asus A8N SLi will not boot up in Vista 64 bit


Make sure that you have the lastest Firmware installed in your BIOS.

Also run Windows Vista Upgrade Wizard before installing Vista to check for compatability.
