Question about ASUS AI Lifestyle P5N32-E SLI (P5N32-E-SLI-GREEN) Motherboard
Hi. I have an ASUS P5N32-E SLI AI Lifestyle motherboard and a Pentium 2-core 6600 CPU with--until this week--2x 1GB DDR2 RAM sticks (Elixir PC2-5300/DDR2-667, as I remember).
Earlier this week I added more RAM to the system, with two higher quality sticks than the original two (it turns out, though, that these are Elecom PC2-6400/DDR2-800). I also blew out the dust with an air can, for which I had to remove the CPU fan/cover to remove the kind-of thick dust under the fan. I had a bit of trouble replacing it over the CPU, as two of the four holding pins were not intact, but finally got it straightened out. I'm hoping I didn't damage something--but it doesn't seem so.
The PC shut down soon after booting it up. I removed the original sticks and moved the new pair into the original slots. Seemed okay. I was able to game, and run other programs with no problems.
Over the past few days though, I've experienced intermittent shut-down problems. At first I attributed this to incompatible memory sticks--someone suggested the different densities would affect things. Now, though, I am only using the new RAM and don't know what to do to stabilize my system
I put this PC together myself a year ago with Vista 32-bit, and while I'm 'okay' with putting hardware together, I'm really no good with the software side, so I don't have a clue how to diagnose what's going on. I'd appreciate your help!!
1. Make sure the CPU cooler is on properly.
2. Check your power levels. I had a computer which did this. Turned out to be the PSU which eventually died. A different PSU has had the board going for 5 days now, instead of 1 day or just a few minutes.
