If you're using a "green" disk drive then it may be spinning down after a period of inactivity. If programs try to access the drive then they can freeze for several seconds while the drive spins up again.

Pros: This is a very stable board. Will overclock very stable. Asus AMD is one of the most stable systems available being able to use the X-Fis without a hickup vs the striker extreme series that doesn't even support the hi end X-Fis.
Cons: Users that give bad review that don't understand how motherboards work. No motherboard out there will allow you to use a full 1066, if your memory is 1066, using 4 sticks of memory. You will have to down your speed to like 960. This is how all motherboards are made now adays, not only asus. It is unfair to give them a bad review while all motherboards act the same way. If you want full 4gigs @ 1066, use 2 sets of sticks not 4 sticks.
I couldnt figure out how to reset my bios so i just took out 3 sticks of ram and reinstalled windows and installation went good and computer is running. should i add just one more stick or all of them? or should i still reset the bios?
You don't need to reset your BIOS with a jumper. In the BIOS screen, find the key for loading defaults and you're done. If you still have problems with 4 sticks of RAM, you might have to manually set them to run at 800 MHz instead of 1066, Either that or checkk the voltage your BIOS is providing to your RAM and you might have to manually set that too. In the meanwhile, check your mobo manufacturer forum to see if your RAM is on the approved list.
ok i was reset the bios and everythings is running great now.. i just have 2 sticks of ram on the computer atm and just going to leave it like that for right now. thanks to everyone that helped me with my problem
