More about p5n32 memory problems asap
  1. made my system work ... 4gb a-data BUT .... with my cd-writer unplugged. if i plug it in, i cant even load windows (bosd). i tryed a non s-ata writer .... same problem :|
  2. I would check the manual for your mobo. p5n32-e has had many problems as you can read from newegg.com http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131073 id contact asus for tech support. Then play the waiting game. Always fun!
  3. yeah ... contact asus ... i think u are joking :))
  4. Yeah I have the same motherboard, there has been alot of problems with ram and this mobo, there is a document on the asus website listing supported ram for the mobo. my g-skill isn't listed but thank goodness it worked for me with 4-4-4-12 timings.
  5. Go to Asus website and get bios 1302. It will probably solve your problem. Whatevevr you do don't try 1403. It is a beta flash and it just wiped out my bios chip. Waiting for new bios to come.

  7. well well well, im looking to change my mobo ... i would like to know a good one maybe with x38 chipset or 780i wich supports 4gb a-data vitesta extreme 800+. does anyone know any?pls
  8. I ahve the ADATA 667Mhx ram (4gb - 2x2) and the P5N32-E SLI Plus board and a E6300 core 2 duo.

    Initially I had random lockups and issues until I changed the following settings

    LTD Frequency 5x (changed from 4x)
    FSB to unlinked (changed from Linked)

    hope this helps.
