Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard
Dunno if this card is incompatible with the board but everytime I slip this card in, my pc turns on and just hangs.
All lights are on, all fans are on, dvd rom spins, hdd sounds for like 3 secs.
Then I left it for 2 hours, then it switches on fine...works for a day then problem is bad.
Doesnt do this when I slip in a 9250 or use it's onboard VGA....
I mean it cant be the psu or anything if it worked before right?
Gonna try updating bios but before please give me some help
Hey Karoter: I've built a lot of systems with ASUS products. I hope you checked your aual before installing that AGP-8X card. The Asus P5PE-VM can use only 1.5V or 0.8 volt video cards in that slot.
Double check to make sure you didn't purchase a 3.3V AGP card. It will notfunction properly ifthis is the case.

Ok..lets do like this..fisrst of all the board is not incompatible..as long as you already had a prove of that 9250 is also a ATI core,so 1600.
here is the link to your mainboard
so..check and replace the power supply.take a true power supply like a 450W akasa or chieftec..theese are a good price /quality balance.
and after that make a bios update,again in case if you already did it,this time under the DOS mode,from a bootable cd.
this more than sure will solve it
for now seems your bios doesnt support the sleep mode in this configuration..also check the ramms..the ramm "doesnt like" the sleep mode,if you know what I mean..it can not recover the free buffer while in sleep mode and also can lead to this fault.
and sure,after all I suggest you reinstal the windows..it will fix some other possible problems.
oh by the way..your intuition was good...
the power supply can be the fisrt to blame..
