Asus Mobo Will Not Boot After Memory Upgrade

Hello, ***Thread may be long, but I need help

Hello, --Thread may be long, but I need help

I have an ASUS P4PE-X mobo, - P4 2.66 & 533 FSB, bios version 1007. I recently decided to upgrade the memory from 512meg to 1 gig all PC2700 333 & 2.5v, cas 2.5 sticks. After installing the new mem, XP could not boot up always hanged, and if it did it was very unstable and would crash. After thel install, bios saw the new upgrade and correctly reported 1024, however. When I disable quick boot at cmos, the bios reports memory error. However when I set the cmos option memory Turbo Speed to disable, bios does not report memory error. After that change XP booted correctly but was somewhat unstable about 40%. After running for about 5 hours the computer crashed and it has never started up again. Now there is no bios screen, no beeps, nothing.I tested the memory sticks on friends computer, the work fine,either together or individually.I cleared CMOS removed all cards except Vid - nothing, removed vid - still nothing. However when I remove the all mem sticks, the system realizes it and I get continuous beeps (no ram), when I re install the rams system hangs. Any help will be very much appreciated, I am on week 2 of fighting this.

Amd processor upgrade

The M3N78-em mobo doesn't support AM3 processors. It is an AM2 / AM2+ platform. A wonderful GPU for you would be this.

If you have any other questions please write back in this thread. I will be happy to help you through your computer upgrade.

Wont boot up

You could be using the wrong type of memory. Check your mobo specs to see what your mobo is compatible with.

Asus P5N-E SLI Mobo will not boot or post.

Hi bart, please re-check you're memory. See page 1-17 in you're user manual. (Read everything)!
You're Asus board can not use 184-pin DDR DIMM's.
Also check the QVL list for supported memory page's 1-18 & 1-19.
I did not see Corsair on either page.
You're board can only use 240-pin DDR2 memory. Please read the "Notes" at the top of page 1-18.
If everything (Regarding memory) is within the Asus specifications than clear the cmos/bios & re-boot again. If you're system still does not boot than remove one DIMM & try again.
Asus warrants their boards for three years. Call Asus tech at
1-812-282-2787 EST, IL 8:00AM to 5:00PM. The call is on you but the service is free. It's worth every dime.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
Would you be kind enough to let me know what Asus suggested? (If it comes to that).

I'm sorry to say that I had much the same problem with a RMA'ed mobo from Asus. The one that came back worked for a short time, and then died.

I can't say that Asus is the only one I've had the same problem with, Intel has done the same. But I kinda expected more from Asus. I did not bother again, I just decided to do a mobo/CPU/memory upgrade at Fry's.

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work

I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel
