Two problems:1) Audio2) Freezing when running AMD Overdrive
I have the habbit of whipping clean my HHD and re-format/re-install system and programs every year for the las five with the newest manufacturer's page downloaded drivers. Two problems: 1) Audio & 2) Freezing when running AMD Overdrive - Original setup:Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF Athlon 64 3200+ Radeon x1300 512 1GB of dual channer ram 300x2 SATA, RAID 0(HalfLife2/FEAR; audio editing, video editing) Realtek's software has a built in eq, not very good but sometimes helped. - New setup:Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF Athlon 64x2 4200+ Radeon x1300 512 1GB of dual channer ram 300x2 SATA, RAID 0 (HalfLife2/FEAR; audio editing, video editing)Audio is HORRIBLE, phone-line quality. Realtek's built in eq only makes sound worse. AMDOverdrive freezes the system when ran. Advice please?

Sounds like your on an older HP laptop. There are many reasons why your computer is freezing up. See below.
1. Too Much "Stuff"' - Your computer might be running to many programs, and that is causing a problem. I would suggest running ccleaner (google this and you will find a program to download). That can take of a few issues. Run the cleaner and do the Register scanner.
2. You might have a bad or corrupt program that you are running. If the same program or application your running keeps locking up your computer, then I would suggest re-installing or removing that program.
3. Virus - You might have a virus on your system that is causing a problem with some application and that would cause your computer to freeze. I would suggest using malwarebytes (google it) to see if you have an infection on your system.
4. Bad Hardware - If your memory stick(s) are bad, then your system can freeze randomly. It is difficult for a user to test for this problem without some know how. I would suggest googling how to test your computer memory to understand how to troubleshoot this problem, if this is indeed the case.
Few steps to check your harddisk status on the motherboard would resolve this issue. Checkin to the cmos setup and look for the detection of the HDD and the size it shows once you have done a formating.
Vista 64 bit shows issues at times while installing a new SATA 1TB HDD. Check if the 1TB HDD is installed on to SATA 0.
Use a WD Disk Manager and format the HDD initially and then try install Vista on to it. Else if this doesnt work on the system, Put the HD on to another working system and Format it with NTFS File system and try installing Vista.. You will be successful. Good Luck.
You have a corrupt NTFS file system Download "Hirens Boot CD" burn to disk and boot from it use the programs on it to check and repair MBR etc. Then try one of the partitions programs to partition and format it
Freezing of computers occur mostly due to shortage of RAM. But in ur case, 1GB is quite enough for XP. Since ur computer is freezing b4 even starting up, thus it could be a problem of disk drives.check if more than 1 drive have been alloted MASTER (Primary) or otherwise same priority. If u have more than 1 HDD, then the one in which the Opering System is installed should be given the Master Primary and the other as Cable select/slave. Likewise do it for the CD/DVD ROM or RAM (the CD/DVD RAM should be alloted the master and ROM as the slave). It can be done by the JUMPERs on the back of the Drives. See the exact setup on the drive surface.
I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.
You should install the Chips drivers or intall all the driver in series listed in your CD Utilities. Its good if you download the latest drivers of your system at www.asus.com or here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
