Is there a chip set for windows vista home premium 32 bit. When I bought my computer I had Vista installed on it and my computer constantly crashed. I had a guy fix my computer, said there was no chipsets...


The chipset (nForce 500) is soldered on the motherboard, it can't be changed. The problems you encountered were probably caused by bad drivers. If you choose to reinstall Vista don't use the driver's disk that came with the pc, get the latest ones from here

But if you have the money you should buy Windows 7 , it's much better than Vista.

I don't see my RAID drives after reinstalling Vista 32


Usually, you have to install the raid drivers during Vista installation , not after. have the device that has the raid drivers on it plugged in when you install Vista, then when you're asked the LOAD DRIVERS option, click load drivers. This will install the raid drivers prior to Vista OS installation.

The flash memory don't work in windows vista please help me if ther is any new driver for this


Hello mohamadg, you need to clarify your question. Flash memory looks like the memory shown on the site below; (Click on the link).
http://www.flash-memory-store.com/?gclid=CPOWldW-2pgCFQu-GgoduVWOeA

(I think your question pertains to system memory)!
System memory for the Asus motherboard looks like this;
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1554&SRCCODE=WEBGOOMEM&cm_mmc_o=mH4CjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE

Your Asus motherboard can only function with, DDR2-800MHz / 667MHz or 533Mhz (Only). Dual channel 4x240 non-ecc memory. You can run up to 8 GB max of memory. If the system memory you are currently using does not match the above type & speed, your motherboard will not function. You will hear a series of beeps during start up of the system. These beeps are known as bios beeps. How many beeps (Including long beeps & how many short beeps you might hear) will tell you what is most likely wrong with your system memory. (See the next link for the Award bios beep codes);
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Dual channel memory should be bought in pairs & not as a single stick/DIMM. Do not install more than 2GB of system memory until windows has been completely updated through (Windows Update Services). Once Vista or any version of windows has been fully updated you can increase your system memory. You can not mix memory speeds & type. If you are using 533MHz memory, & you want to increase the total memory to be used, you must match the memory speed of 533MHz. All system memory must be the same speed & type. See page 2-10 in your manual. Running two different types of memory may not give off bios beeps & the system may not function at all.
For drivers, click on the Asus link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Once the link opends, type the model number M2N-E SLI into the search window located in the upper right hand corner of the link & than click the white arrow. In the next link that opends click on, "M2N-E SLI related files for download". Another window will open. Click on the dropdown menu & choose your operating system & click search.
All drivers, manual, bios files, bios utility, CPU supported & FAQ's are listed there.
FAQ link for Vista; http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-E%20SLI&product=6&os=24
This last link shows the memory tested to work with the M2N-E SLI (Green) motherboard;

Asus |M2N-E SLI Reeboot issues


Hey, I own the same motherboard and I don't have your problem.
I would suggest trying to update the bios, i think its more of a bios problem / motherboard issue, not windows related.

you can get the newest bios from http://support.asus.com/

Setting up SATA


You need to enter the bios. Use the M2N-E SLI manual to help make some changes. Start up the PC & begin to press the Delete key every two seconds. Doing this will open the bios. Open you're manual to page 4-29. All four SATA's should be set to Disable. Save & exit the bios. The SATA drives will still function but you should no longer get the screen to setup a RAID.

Enjoy!
