When M2n-MX boot , it is slow in detecting two IDE device. It take 1 min to detect both of them then i can start windows. But when i disconnect one of them , there is no problem. I have HDD 80 + DVD ROM and connect both of them with IDE cable.
Similar problem here... Doing an in-case update from a perfectly reliable system. CD Burner and IOMega ZIP on the IDE cable and half the time the Burner doesn't reset at power on. I've tried two different power supplies, changed cables, and so on.
If I use either drive alone no problem... put them both on the cable and no go.
Checking the CD Burner on the bench, it will reset every time I give it power. But not so on the motherboard...

You can try checking device manager drivers in safe mode or under view > hidden devices. This will show extra devices and errors. The odd drive letters don't matter at all. You can always change in Disk Management, but be aware of anything pointing to particular drive letters.
Hi vinayan092, The Asus website still do not have the audio driver for this model, try installing the windows Vista driver on this link http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2/M2NMX/#download, if you have installed this successfully, you can try to check in device manager if windows detected this successfully.
there is no diffrence between primary & third ide hdd ,if you install nay booteble hdd in master so system try to from that frist .
boot sequence of motherboard is try to boot from primary master first
then Primary slave then secondary master and then master secondary ..................,
Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.
I have 2 possible solutions for you.
1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)
2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.
Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"
Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.
If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.
You didn?t give a whole lot of information to go on but if the problem is just slow drive detection you can speed things along by deactivating the IDE drive slots that are unused. For example if you have one hard drive on IDE channel 0 and a CD device channel 1 disable the secondary spots on each channel, it will make the drive detection faster.
If that doesn?t help give us some more specifics about your current configuration and we can pickup from there.
