Question about ASUS Premium Vista M2N32-SLI (M2N32-SLI PREMIUM VISTA) Motherboard

1 Answer

Asus Premium Vista M2n32-Sli

Power up problem:
The problem started about a month after the unit was up and running.
The unit is completely shut down. Power supply is off.
When I turn on the power supply the drive lights go on the fans start up and then after 10 seconds or so everything shuts down again.
I can then press the start button and Windows XP starts up.
I've got and AMD dual core 6000
4gigs of ram Kingston
2 western digital hard drives.
1 video card Asus En8500 GT silent
2 dvd writers
1 extra 120 millimeter fan.
1 power supply Antec phantom 500
Tower is a Antec Sonata III

The Asus tech said it could be EMI
But wouldn't EMI problems start when the unit is new not after a month.

Help, Asus is very slow in responding and to offer a solution.

Regards,

Rick

    SMPS does this mean switching mode power supply. The original was the one that came with the tower. then we tried another not enough power and then I bought the Phantom and it worked fine for about a month and all of sudden???????????

    Ran the memtest86 for 4 or five hours no errors.

    Ram checked out and no problems there.

    and all the components were disconnected in alternance to see if it was a problem with one ot them.



    Thanks for the speedy reply,

Dear Riddler2002,

First thing u have to check the SMPS if it is not working properly then it will restart automatically not working properly it means that the SMPS not giving the excact power supply to mother board now the question is how can u check the SMPS working fine or not do one thing borrow a SMPS through u r friend connect that SMPS to u system if it working with u r friends SMPS then u have to change u r SMPS if still u r getting same problem then u have to check u r system RAM if RAM not work Properly then it will get this type of problem so Change the RAM and connect another RAM to u r system if the RAM is working fine then it will work properly.

Regards,

My asus m2n32-sli motherboard won't start up; runs for 4 seconds then shuts off. currently hooked up to the mobo: have a 500W power supply; AMD 3300 64 processor; zalman cpu fan; 2 patriot 2GB DDR2...


The only thing i can suggest is remove one of your RAM sticks and see if the machine will boot. I had this problem with mine and it turned out that one of my RAM slots was faulty and would not boot if both RAM slots had RAM in them.

Sounds like you built this puppy.

1) Does it use metal standoff's to hold the motherboard up off the Support Plate? (Standoff is metal, Spacer is plastic)

Do the standoff's match EVERY mounting hole in the motherboard?

To wit, there isn't a standoff sitting on the support plate, that doesn't match up to a mounting hole in the motherboard?
If there is a standoff in the wrong spot, it could be shorting against the exposed solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard.

2) is the 4-pin +12 volt power cable from the Power Supply plugged into the motherboard?

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

[ Two Yellow 12 Volt wires, two Black Ground wires ]

3) Thermal paste applied, and properly? AMD processors don't play when it comes to heat. If they reach the thermal limit, (Like any Processor), they turn off, BUT, an AMD will turn off in a heartbeat.

Heatsink sitting flat on the top of the Processor's case? I use a 'birds-eye' view with the mobo out, and look across the side. (Sides, ends)

4) Zalman fan doing it's thing? Spinning?
Spinning all the time, no intermediate spinning of spinning a few times, and stop?
Spinning at the proper RPM?

5) Patriot ram seated well? Locks are in tight?

Didn't get bumped when you were hooking up power cables?
Remove/re-seat. Only takes a few minutes, and will help you sleep better tonight.
(Both of those ram memory modules in the same channel?)

6) Power Supply known to be good?

What is with the 40GB Seagate harddrive? Typo, and meant 400GB?

I think you are mixing ram.... Use the same make and module for your ram... when you mix ram, the problem is other ram can be difernt Voltage. some 1.9V, 1.8V, 2.0V, 2.2V to operate. If you have 1.8V and 2.0V the computer won't boot. Hope this helps.

My m2n32-sli premium vista edition motherboard refuses to boot up when i put 6 gbs of memory. How do i solve this issue?


Hi iimarceloii, did you check the FAQ section on Asus web site?
Using Vista 32bit/64bit edition or win XP;
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N32-SLI%20Premium%20VISTA%20Edition&os=24
Basically Asus wants you to use 2GB of memory until windows has been completely installed & completely updated before you can add more memory to the system.
Than you can increase your memory to 6BG. To see all the FAQ's from Asus, click on this link; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Type: M2N32-SLI into the search window & click the arrow button.

Good luck iimarceloii!
Merry xMiss
