Question about ASUS M2A-VM (0610839149438) Motherboard
IN the last month i purchased a new computer here are the specs -
This is a known issue with some ASUS boards. Essentially they are very picky with RAM settings and do not detect the RAM timings/voltage etc correctly. If you can, find out what your RAM speed, timings and voltages are (Eg: DDRII-800, 4-4-4-12, 2.1V) and set them manually in the BIOS. This should fix the problem.

Well this problem is not new to me..and unfortunatelly I had the same problem on 2 different mainboards,both by asus.
I dont know to explain exactly to you which part of the mainboard is damaged,because this can be differnet from case to case(like damaged overheated condensors,or condensors put wrong +/- from factory or the chipset has problems or rests of metal glue on the back of the board making some short circuit)..so I cant tell exactly where to look..but..more than sure it is the mainboard.
I remember I used to have this problem in office..and like an irony...it worked fine in games..
well my conclusion and advice to is to go back to the seller to ask a new one if this is in guarantee..oor buy a new one if you can..because youll never get to aa end with this.
however you may still try one last thins..try to make a bios update.
sometimes,like 40% of cases it works.
because there is incopatibility in the board bios and the new developed application and so on..
try this to and if you cant get a positive result..get another new one
for the bios update get into the asus oficial site ,find your model there,download the new bios version,make a bootable cd and in DOS mode re write the bios.
take care this is a delicate job.
good luck Amanda and please let me know if I can do more..
