Weird!

I have a ASUS M2N32-SLI Back in Feb I upgraded to a Phenom II x4 940 Black box along with two new 1066/800 Memory DDR2

I had two 1 TB seagate drives that after 6 mths DIED.I now have two replacments! In reinstalling everything! XP64 worked fine as setup,no problems at all!

SO! I install VISTA Home premium 64bit UPgrade! it got to the reboot! BSOD 7E.........Anytime one has 4 gig in place ZAP!

It acts the same way as it did before the BIOS was replaced back when. works with 2 gig but fails when 2 gig is added! WORKED fine with my old AMD X2 x6000.


XP has NO problems what ever with 4 gig..Mem test ok! Vista will crash after the load bar moves 3 times and a 1/2!

I,m doing this from XP! Only thing I can figure is 4 Cpus have added another Mapping problem! Can this be fixed?

I do like 4 gig!

Check your memory settings/timings, and (especially) manually set your voltages to the maker's recommended value. Vista is more aggressive with RAM, and because of that can often expose a marginal setup that functions in XP.

You was Right! I figure ASUS has to FIX the 2205 BIOS Arggg! I got it working last night finaly!

The BIOS don,t have voltage readout of the Memory for seeing if it,s not right! which it is! why do they make crap like this!

Remember when you could fix your own BIOS!


Dennis Thanks!
