Laurens-O Posted February 15, 2005 Share Posted February 15, 2005 Hi there! Yes, yes, another user with a P5AD2 and nothing but problems! I wanted to contact ASUS about this, but communicating with these guys realy is difficult at the moment. I´m building a new system but i never got it to work. If i start up Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 setup (boot from CD), i suddenly get a blue screen (BSOD) saying something about ...paged area... I found out that when i disconnect all the USB devices (which are a mouse, 2 dongles and a keyboard connected to a USB hub), setup goes ok, but when the system needs to reboot after setup, and wants to start windows for the first time, it freezes at the loading screen (where you see the windows logo and the moving bar). This always happens at exactly the same moment. I realy tested almost everything: Tried a NexusTek 4090 400W PSU and a Zalmann 400W PSU, It didn´t make any difference. I got all the RAM modules out and tried them one by one, didn´t help. During all the tests, only the videocard (ATI X850XT) and one HD (WD Raptor 74Gb) were installed. no other (PCI) devices, i disabled all the integrated devices on the motherboard and the default BIOS values are loaded (newest BIOS: 1009), so everything is as basic as possible. A P4 560 3,6 Ghz is installed by the way. I read allot of topics about corsair memory that might have a conflict with the p5ad2, or, that it needs a special setting in order to work properly. Can you please give me a good advice here? I seriously browsed this forum for a long time but it´s still difficult for me. Im totally desperate and need to get this system to work soon because i have some projects that need to be finished soon. Would it really be the memory in this case? Yes indeed, there´s not much else left which can be the cause, or -is- it something else? By the way, I quickly read about rumours that installing 4x 512Mb on the 925X chipset would disable running the system on dual channel. Is this realy true? So, if I would get things to work, my memory will not run at full speed? Thanks allot for your support :) Kind Regards, Laurens Otten, The Netherlands Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
