Hi Mike,

It is possible when you reinstalled did you install the same version of windows? ie. x86 or 64bit it is possible during the installation process new drivers are updated.

Also, b/c of this fact your motherboard may have spdif out and if it does the drivers installed will be HD audio drivers so check the device manager.

If it is HD audio drivers and using spdif passthrough the only way to hear it is if you send it to a receiver or manual go into the sound module in control pannel and select a different sound source rather than spdif out.

good luck

The flash memory don't work in windows vista please help me if ther is any new driver for this

Hello mohamadg, you need to clarify your question. Flash memory looks like the memory shown on the site below; (Click on the link).

(I think your question pertains to system memory)!
System memory for the Asus motherboard looks like this;

Your Asus motherboard can only function with, DDR2-800MHz / 667MHz or 533Mhz (Only). Dual channel 4x240 non-ecc memory. You can run up to 8 GB max of memory. If the system memory you are currently using does not match the above type & speed, your motherboard will not function. You will hear a series of beeps during start up of the system. These beeps are known as bios beeps. How many beeps (Including long beeps & how many short beeps you might hear) will tell you what is most likely wrong with your system memory. (See the next link for the Award bios beep codes);
Dual channel memory should be bought in pairs & not as a single stick/DIMM. Do not install more than 2GB of system memory until windows has been completely updated through (Windows Update Services). Once Vista or any version of windows has been fully updated you can increase your system memory. You can not mix memory speeds & type. If you are using 533MHz memory, & you want to increase the total memory to be used, you must match the memory speed of 533MHz. All system memory must be the same speed & type. See page 2-10 in your manual. Running two different types of memory may not give off bios beeps & the system may not function at all.
For drivers, click on the Asus link;
Once the link opends, type the model number M2N-E SLI into the search window located in the upper right hand corner of the link & than click the white arrow. In the next link that opends click on, "M2N-E SLI related files for download". Another window will open. Click on the dropdown menu & choose your operating system & click search.
All drivers, manual, bios files, bios utility, CPU supported & FAQ's are listed there.
FAQ link for Vista;
This last link shows the memory tested to work with the M2N-E SLI (Green) motherboard;
If this has not answered your question, please let me know.

Thank you for using FixYa mohamadg!

Asus motherboard M2N-E will not power up

It could be a memory card too. I would start by pulling the memory cards and see what happens.

Is there a connection on the motherboard for your hard drive?

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.

No signal to monitor when booting.

(1) Remove memory from mother board and start the system if you happen to listen long beep then RAM is not working properly.
(2) Clean RAM conducting area on mother board with clean cotton cloth, put one peice of RAM and test and check the othe peice also, if working you could any sign display . Before doing all these check mother board any LED is glowing if so your SMPS is working after you turn on UPS.

(3) Check for all proper connection for all cables. Have you connected video cable of monitor to mother board VGA (it will not work because it is disabled as soon as you installed XFX GeForce 8800 GT), your viedo output only will come through XFX GeForce 8800 GT VGA port.

(4) If propelm persits Deassmble complete the system and reassmble & do n't connect HDD, DVD, floppy. Cehck with bare mother baord, processor, RAM (put one picese at a time) by connecting viedo cable of monitor
