Is your CPU cooling fan working? Check to make sure there are no obstructions around the CPU heatsink and fan. Check the fan on your video card as well to make sure it is working. Sounds like it might be an overheating problem.

CAN I USE AN ATHLON II X2 245 ON MY M2N-E SLI

No, it's an AM3 processor, it will simply not not be recognized in an AM2 board with an older chipset like yours.

Motherboard Issue

Hi Tomokato,
This maybe nothing but the first thing I checked is the CPU.
Supported CPU list through Asus web site for M2N-SLI
(Click on this link). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-SLI
The first supported 64 X2 is;
Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (CU),512K,65W,rev.F2,SocketAM2
Second CPU supported;
Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (DD),1MB,65W,rev.G,SocketAM2

The CPU that you are using is not supported.
Since this is a new CPU, you might be able to exchange it for the Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (CU),512K,65W,rev.F2,SocketAM2.
Link to Asus main web site for M2N-SLI.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-SLI&SLanguage=en-us
Suggest you add the above link to you're favorites.

Even you're memory is not supported. As seen in user manual page. 2-13.

Have more questions, feel free to ask.

Mike

Video card

This may sound weird, but remove ram to make it 2 gigs and try it again, some mobo's have issues with 4 gigs. 3 gigs usually works too.

Serious problems with an Asus M2N E SLI motherboard.

I understand how this must be driving you nuts. What I am going to suggest might sound stupid but I have to ask. After your assembly was finished (1st time around) did you check the 4-pin ATX + 12volt connector was correctly & fully inserted into the board? Pg. 2-28 section 6. in your manual? Did you add thermal grease to the CPU. A bad pin on the CPU will give you this symptom. I completly understand if you do not agree with this next part but it is extreamly important you go with it. Take the static bag your board was wrapped in & lay it on a table. Place a piece of foam on the static wrap & place your motherboard on the foam. You can use books instead. Connect your PSU, CPU heatsink & fan, Hd & video card & 1dimm to motherboard. Connect mouse, keyboard & monitor.
Check that PSU is set for 115v (small red slide switch near the off/on toggle switch). Plug in the PSU to outlet.
If the green led on board lights up you have power to board. This is known as a standby led. If it's not on, flip the toggle switch on the PSU to on.
Use a pen to short the power switch. This will turn on the board, no different than you pressing the power button on your case. Goto pg. 2-30 in your manual. Find PWRSW two pins. If the system starts up than somewhere durring install the board was shorted to the case.
