Having some serious stability issues:

New Build:

Antec TtruePowerII550W PSU
A8N-SLI Delux
Athlon64 3800+
2 x 1 GB Rosewill 400DDR (PC3200)
2 x GeForce ASUS 6800GT 256Mb
2 x 160 SATA 7200 RPM WD HD's
1 x Sony DVD/CD drive
1 x Memorex CD drive
Windows XP Home Edition

I checked the BIOS and its running Rev 1008.

I had the XP program installed for awhile and
I had the system running in Dual graphics card mode but kept getting a blue screen saying it couldn't acces some file or was shutting down to protect some equipement, than it would automatically restart, a couple of time it just locked up a different blue screen saying I should chekc my operating system for errors. I switch to single graphics mode and its a bit more stable but still freezing and giving me the blue screen than auto restarting.

So I found this page and went through the BIOS settings at the front page. I set the DDR Memory to 400, it was set to 266 than I changed some of the other settings per the front page of this thread. Restarted the comp and couldn't even get to windows, it would flash a blue screeen very quickly than go into restart at the windows XP loading screen.

So I changed all the settings back in the BIOS, no good same problem.

So I start loading XP on again, formating the drive and doing a fresh complete reload. After 5 attempts finally gave up. During each install process I would get an error that it wasn't able to load some file (this si during the first installing phase) and it would ask me if I would like to retry, I say yes, and it continues on loading hopefully after installing what it wasn't able to. During 1 install this happened 8 times. Than I get to the second phase of the install and occasionally the comp would freeze again and give me a blue screen and sometimes restart sometimes it would just stay there. Finally after the 5th install try It finished loading the 2nd phase of the install process than restarted the second phase it had just completed all over again. So I quit.

The odd part was I had the system up and running for a bit before I tried all these installs, granted it wasn't stable at all, but know I can't even seem to get through the install. And the one time I was able to get all the way through the install (I believe it was the 4rth attempt) I get into windows and anythgin I click on I get an error message, file not found, cannot run, run chkdsk, etc...

Any ideas what could be wrong? I've checked several things but I'm not super savvy in the ways of the computer software.

OH yeah one other thing before I started all these failed installs, when it was running, I downloaded a program called everest to check my system and see what BIOS I was running, and when running the benchmarks under the memory colum it had highlighted that I was running PC2100, when I know I bought PC3200 sticks.

I'm figureing I either have bad RAM, faulty MB, or Crappy Original Win XP CD.

Any help is appreciated, thanks

First we'll reset the BIOS:
1. Unplug your PC from the wall. Open the case and put on your ESD strap.
2. Remove everything from the mobo except CPU and HSF, RAM and video card. Make sure RAM is in the proper slots as per your instruction manual and preferably just one stick of it (vital that a single stick is in the proper slot which is the second blue slot as you move away from the CPU). Also, remove the second video card and change the SLI selector card from dual to single. Make sure it is properly seated.
3. Unplug ALL the drives FROM the mobo and disconnect power from the drives themselves.
4. Find "Clear CMOS" in your manual and do that. Basically you remove the battery from the mobon and then locate the 3 pin jumper which is right next to the battery. Pins 1 & 2 are covered by a blue cap. Put the cap on pins 2 & 3 for a few minutes and then move it back to pins 1 & 2 . Reinstall the battery and your BIOS should be back to default settings.
5. Make sure both power cords are properly seated in the mobo and that the RAM and video card are completely seated and video card has power. Make sure monitor cable is fully connected.
6. Plug the PC back into the wall and turn it on.

You should be back in BIOS now. Set all the easy things like SLI mode to single card and PCIe as first display etc. Leave the RAM at auto and the CPU at auto. If you'll be running RAID, enable the RAID controller you'll be using and the two ports you will plug the drives into and disable the other controller. If not running RAID then disable both NVRAID and SIL RAID in BIOS. If everything is stable plug in the Floppy and reboot. If all is still well then plug in one CD ROM Drive. If still healthy then plug in your hard drives.

If the system is stable at this point then go ahead and load windows. Remember, your SATA and RAID drivers floppy.

After you load XP, load just the drivers required to connect to the internet and update XP. After the reboot, load your Nforce drivers (except for NV Firewall) and the Nview drivers. If you're happy with everything you can load your NForce firewall and virus software.

If all is still good, then stick in the other RAM DIMM and you can begin setting the RAM to proper timings. I'd suggest DDR400 and the rest at auto for now. Then you can plug in the second video card and get SLI back up and running.

At some point in the above I'd expect that you will run into the cause of your problems. That is why it is important to do things in the proper order as I have listed above. You'll be able to tell where the issues are. I'd suspect that you are having some RAM or power problems but the PSU is pretty good so look at the RAM with a jaded eye. Good luck and hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

Merc,

How would I check for that exactly? On the OCZ forums they said it sounds like I have a bad PSU, I was hoping for a quicker solution than RMA though =)

They're probably right although I am pretty sure that the SATA drives get 3v power too. You might try disconnecting the two drives and booting to BIOS and see if you are still seeing the drain. Second option would be to get a PSU tester (they're cheap, like $12 or so) and test the PSU itself. It could just have a bad 3v bus and you'd ike to find out about that before RMAing a good CPU. If no joy, then possibly borrow a CPU from a really good friend (LOL) and try that to see if there is still a drain. One of those three shoul dgive you an answer.

>> No Love
Merc,

Thanks again for the reply. Well I tried to remove the sata drives, but it still held solid at exactly the same voltage. Also, the fact that when I have the system on and I have my DMM hooked up to test the 3.3v rail and I twist the voltage adjustment potentiometers in the back and it doesn't move at all has me lost for answers, lol. The slightest twist on the pots for the 12v or 5v sends the voltage flying around wildly so I'm guessing its the PSU. All my buddies moved after we graduated from college this may so I don't have anyone else I can go bug, the only other thing I have is my Dell Dimension PSU but I'm guessing it won't even have enough power to run my system at all.

Gustavo,
Make sure you have the 24pin connector pluged in aswell as the Blue P4 connector in the corner of the board. Check this as its a common error.

Marvin,

I have the same Graphics Card and ill explain exactly how mine is setup.

1. 6600Gt in PCI-E Slot 1 (Obviously Insterted Correctly)
2. P4 Power connector Pluged in
3. 24 Pin Power connected
4. Set To single Video Card.

Make sure the cards is not damaged, (no components shorting out).
The Heat Sink is not pulled away from the Card.
Check all ram is inserted correctly
CPU is fitted correctly (No pins damaged)

(Your best bet is to try the card in another rig)

Try these things and post back.

(Pity there is no threading in this forum - this is a huge discussion topic).

Well, I've now run my new system for a week trading commodities with it and I couldn't be happier. Everything is lightning fast compared to my older Dell Dimension 2.4GH Intel machine.

For anyone interested, I actually run both machines simultaneously. I have 3 screens. The left one is plugged to the old Dell Dimension. The right 2 are plugged to the new Asus machine (see specs in sig below). (I've gone back to RAID 1 for my HDD setup - see question about this below).

Now, with the 3 screens and 2 computers I use one mouse and keyboard. I use a piece of software called "synergy" (google it) which turns one machine into a host and the second one into a client, thus making the mouse and keyboard transparently usable on both machine - pretty neat.

As a commodity trader, I'm looking for a lot of redundency and fault tolerance. I use an external P drive (40GB Iomega) for all my data files and another external HDD (Buffallo 250GB) hangs off that for backups of all of the Iomega plus the c: drives on my 2 machine workstation setup, plus another 2 machines I have running in the background for other trading purposes. (I have a total of 6 screens available running off 4 computers.)

Two questions if I may to this knowledgable group:

1)

On the Asus board we have 2 network plugs - Nividia and Marvell - why? What is the purpose? I can see if I had say a Verizon internet service and a Comcast internet service I could connect my computer up to both services and have internet connection redundency - is this the purpose? Either way it's neat.

2)

I've setup my system with RAID 1 - it's working fine. Now what happens if a disk poops its' pants? Will the other one automatically kick in or will I have some downtime rebooting onto the other drive? Everything I've read says how great RAID 1 is for redundency but other than pulling the plug on one of the drives, nothing seems to explain what would actually happen if a drive gives up. Don't I need a third drive waiting in the background somehow ready to leap into action when one of the current 2 RAID 1 drives gives up the ghost?

Very grateful for any feedback/advice.

Rob.

For anyone new reading this thread, I hope I've provided an example of a smooth install and trouble free installation of this motherboard in a new build. I'm sure following the advice on this board helped enormously.

Rob-
I always figured that one port could be for an internal network and the other connected to the internet . With RAID 1 if a disk fails you simply unplug it and keep on running. When you get a new drive you plug that in and rebuild the mirror. The godd drive should keep operating without interruption.

That's the theory anyways. I guess, since youare in an adventurous mood, you could unplug one drive while underway and test the theory. Course you'll have to do a rebuild of the mirror.

Hey merc do you think this would work


A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego Integrated into Chip FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor Type 90 nm

1 Western Digital Raptor 36.7GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150

1 MSI Geforce 6600GT 128MB PCI Express

SILVERSTONE ZEUS ATX12V 650W Power Supply

CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory TCCD 2-2-2-5

My questions are..
Will the TCCD 2-2-2-5 memory be enough for the processor to keep up with this memory?
Since I only want to buy one Raptor HD for know, will it even work on this rig?
If i want to add another raptor HD of the same size later do I have to have one of thoose pci raid cards?

I think I remember reading somewhere that the silverstone zeus is always running even when off, but on a lower speed so it must stay hot all the time,is this true?
And i think remember reading that the Zeus PSU needs a minimum of a AMD 4000+ with 2 6800GT SLI to even run. This psu has me worried because i want to have 1 6600gt and Amd 3700. Is any of this true? is so what would be a better PSU.

Ruffino-
Everything on that list should work great. The RAM speeds may be a little optimistic, Corsair lists the best timings for that RAM on an AMD CPU as 2.5/3/3/6 1T. I run mine at that and everything is stable but I am not an accomplished O/Cer. If you know what you're doing you could probably push that RAM a lot harder than I do.

The Zeus is a big, powerful PSU and would certainly run your system with no problem. There isn't really a minimum that you need to worry about for a PSU. Just need enough resistance to turn it on and have a load to push. You'll hit the Zeus' number easily. All PSU's run constantly (they're providing DC power to the PC) and the better one's adjust fan speed to load. With modern mobos, even when they are turned off the PSU is still providing a little juice to the mobo so the system is always on and, therefore, the PSU is always on. You can always get a decent estimate of power needs at http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/

All of the above just begs the question, if you are only going to run one video card and one small hard disk then why get this motherboard and that PSU? Are you planning on expanding later? If not, then get a smaller mobo with one PCIe slot and a smaller (less expensive) PSU. The Zeus would be required if your were pushing two 6800GT's, two Hard Drives, a couple DVD/CD ROM drives, a lot of fans and overclocking. If you're only running what you spec'ed out then you're wasting your money. You selwected some great parts but you could get a Fortron Blue Storm 500 for $80 and the A8N E for $120, have a great set up and save a few bucks. If you're expanding later then disregard this and continue on mate.

Hit Enter to continue. All went well until it came to a screeching halt. At the bottom on my screen it says "Setup is starting Windows." Nothing else happens until i reset the thing. I have let it set for 5 hrs. No luck.

Any Ideas?

Currently having the '1 long beep 2 short beep' issue with this motherboard, which is a video access error. I switched out the video card and still I have the same problem. Only things that are plugged in are graphics card (X700), Ram, CPU, and 20pin+4pinATX power.

This machine was running fine for months. I had this problem earlier this week, but after fiddling with the placement of the graphics card it worked for a few days. Then yesterday I accidentally bumped the case and the machine froze, and I haven't gotten it to work since. I thought it was a video card issue since I figured I unseated the card, but putting a brand new card in has not helped. Is the motherboard simply dead? Seems ridiculous for a $250 dollar motherboard to just screw up like this...

MOBO: Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
HDD: IDE WD 300GB, SATA WD 36GB (x2)
RAM: 2GB PC3200 DDR

OK, We want these sata drives independant and not in a raid. The BIOS is showing these drives. But, Windows is not.

HELP!!!
