Hello!
Does anyone know what is the purpose of the setting "enable master ECC" in the A8n_SLi BIOS?
I have a major problem with "STOP: 0x0000009C "MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION". After checking all possible solutions, I finaly got to this setting.
Looking for a good idea to solve this problem!
Thanks!

Just got my rig up and running as follows:

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
Athlon64 3500+
WD Raptors on Raid 0
Corsair Twin1024X PRO
eVGA GeForce6800 Ultra
Audigy 2 ZS

Now I'm using the 1006 BIOS which seems to be Asus's latest ones. A slight problem which is just more annoying than harmful is that in my system tray there is a "safely remove hardware" icon. When I click it the window asks "Select the device you wish to unplug or reject. Then click stop. When windows notifies you it is safe to do so, unplug your device from the computer." ...The devices mentioned are my 2 Western Digital HDs on NVRAID 0. Why is there this icon? I tried messin with selective startup but wasnt sure which one to disable. Any suggestions?

***UPDATE***

Asus just released the 1006 final BIOS and the NVIDIA Beta ForceWare 71.84 WHQL drivers are available as well, check the first page of the FAQ for details.

Hi.
I have an A8N-SLI basic (not DELUXE).
Is it correct to update the bios with the deluxe version (that is the only one updated)?
thx

Mike,
Thanks for the links!
>>>Do a registry repair with regedit, but I recommend Registry Healer.
I did not give precisions but the system is brand new and started problems in the first 24h of use...
Configuration :
A8n-Sli Deluxe with AMD 64 3500 +
Antec Sonata case
PSU Zalman 400W
GeForce 6600GT
1 Gb RAM non ECC
2x HDD SATA 160Gb non-raid (Hitachi)
The "STOP" errors are completely random...at start up or during DVD encoding...

Mike,
thanks for your answer.
Why Is the deluxe version the only one that gets support?

A registry repair has been known to stop this error, whether your system is new or not. Actually, a new install does mess up your registry and it should be cleaned anyway!

I know this error, I got it myself and fixed it.
Get ROXIO Platinum and use their drivers when burning, it may help stop your error messages when using DVD.

Use higher quality DVD's not bundles like 50 Packs.

Good luck!

I had the same problem with the NV Raid installing as a removable device. I am sorry to say the only cure for me was to use the SI Raid controller.

>>>You can flash after the fact, Just use the factory BIOS, get up and running, and use ASUS Update in windows to Flash your BIOS. It's a lot easier and failsafe.


Thanks Mike,
I just figured that it must be better to update Bios before loading XP but if there is no difference then I'll just do it after.

Just a note.

I find it very difficult to narrow my search in the A8N-SLI FAQ section.
If you'd like to get specific answers from within this section only, and not the rest of Hardware Analysis, do the following.

1-Download Flashget, it's free! http://www.amazesoft.com/ and install it.
2-Go to http://hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/38623/
3-Right click in the FAQ section and click Download All by Flashget
4-The Select URL window will appear, in this window select file 38623 (index file page 1) and all files that resemble _o=20 (page 2) to _o=1280 (page 65) etc. and uncheck the rest. Download.
The files will end up in C:\Downloads
5-Use a file renamer software or manually add the .html extension. ie: 38623.html _o=20.html to each file.
6-Copy this folder to your desktop and rename to A8N-SLI FAQ.
7-Use Google desktop search (adjust settings - Google integration. CHECK Show Desktop Search results on Google Web Search result pages. and UN-CHECK the rest) to search the desktop and it will scan the folder and give you concise answers. http://desktop.google.com/

Good luck!

Mike :)
