Try RAM with a different speed. My 800 mhz RAM didn't work until I installed 533 mhz RAM and adjusted to 800 mhz in BIOS. Newly built PC, default must be set as 533 mhz because I reset the CMOS and still couldn't POST to BIOS. Only taking out all RAM gave me any sort of audible error code. Luckily I found some 533 RAM before I RMA'd the board.

Check the BIOS jumper. Some of these boards ship with the bios jumper in the clear position. Change it from where it is now to the other setting and see if that helps you.

Asrock g31 m motherboard will only post if only one ram slot occupied , will not post if both slots are used , identical matched pair of ram ddr 667 800 mhz crucial ballistix both tested in another ri


I did some research. You didn't say what density the RAM was, but everything I can find on the Ballistix 800 MHZ DDR2 states that it runs at 2.2V. The standard for DDR2 RAM is 1.8V. You motherboard has both and AUTO and manual setting capability for memory (DRAM) voltage. It is possible that the AUTOP feature is not detecting the need for 2.2V, and that with only one DIMM installled, the memory marginally functions, but with the extra loading of the second it will not. Boot the system with the single DIMM, go to the BIOS, and set the DRAM voltage manually to the 2.01V setting (Verify by the part number of the RAM with the CRUCIAL website that is uses 2.2V before doing this). Once you have changed the voltage in BIOS, shut down and add the second DIMM and see if things improve.

Added 1G memory, for a total of 2GB. the system still only sees 1G


If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory. You can check below URLs for reference:

Asus P5n32 Sli Premium


Hi,
There is a couple of things you can do to troubleshoot this.
If there is an on-board VGA (video) port on the back, try that.
Clear the CMOS. On that spec board there should be a coloured plastic jumper next to or near the motherboard battery like this >>>>>
31c50da.jpg
If there is no jumper then remove the power cord from the back and take the motherboard battery out for half an hour then replace and see if you get a post screen.
If it still suffers from the same symptoms then there could be micro fissures between solder points on the motherboard as Intel's tend to run fairly hot.
This means you have to re-float the motherboard and is a last resort repair.
If you need anymore help or advice please post back.


Good luck.

P5N-SLI


HI stukove2000,
What is the 5200 stand for?
Here is Asus approved CPU list link for the P5N-E SLI MB:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5N-E%20SLI

The Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 5-5-5-15, should work just fine on the Asus MB.
Here is an expanded approved Qualified Venders List from Asus.
http://www.asus.com/999/download/products/1474/1474_10.pdf
You can also see a smaller QVL list in the manual on page 1-18 & 1-19.
The QVL insures total compatibility with the motherboard.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT will run just fine on the Asus MB. Just make sure your power supply is no less than 500W. A 600W or 650W is preferred.

Here is a write up of the Asus mother board: http://www.techspot.com/review/43-asus-p5n-e-sli/
Asus FAQ's of the P5N-E SLI. Good place to check questions about the board.

Hi jlg371,
Did you know that Asus warrants their boards for three years?
Why buy a new board when you can have yours' replaced by Asus!
While inside your case, look at the parallel port. There is a white sticker there. Write down the information onto a piece of paper. Call Asus tech at: 1-812-282-2787 M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST.
It’s best to call in the morning. Get a case number from Asus. The way this works is you'll strip the board including the CPU. Box it & ship it back to Asus. You pay to ship it to Asus. (Signature Requested)!
Asus pays to ship back to you. Expect 2 weeks, 10 working days (Min) to pass before Asus ships your MB back to you.

Good luck jlg371!

Blank Screen, no beeps, New Build


Hi Durmo, your troubles may be the SLI card. If you are using a single 8500GT make sure your SLI card is plugged into the motherboard as a single graphics card. See page 3-9 in your manual. If your 8500GT has dual out puts check both for display. Only one will show you display.
If you have this set correctly & you have tested your monitor on another system (& it is good) yet no display from the system than contact Asus. This board was make in 2007 & is warranted up to 2010. You can do this online or call Asus at 1-812-282-2787 M-F EST. Other countrys click the dropdown menu at Asus home page. http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=473&model=1474&modelmenu=1

Post if you need more info.
Good luck!

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).

Mike

1333 fsb duo dore wont post


The board is most likely the first version and will not support the 1333 FSB even if the box says it does. The way to find out is to look at the motherboard for Rev. and notice the revision number. Cross reference the model number and rev no. and you will see it was before they could support the 1333 FSB. Go back to the Pentium D.
