Asus P5N E-SLI & 1Gx2|CORSAIR TWIN2X024-6400 R


Recommended Posts

I just bought a new system and I am having this freezing issue so bad I am about to go crazy.


I just want to play BF2 and all I get is constant freezing up, it froze up with only the 2x512 sticks in and also froze with only the 2x1GB sticks in and with all four in at the same time.


Is this a MOBO bios issue or do I need to manually go into bios and change some settings?


I was told by someone that I shouldnt run (2) 512MB sticks at the same time as (2) 1024MB sticks, is that true?


I am not new to computers but I have never done anything in the bios before but I am ready to try anything, please will someone help me and walk me through any bios changes I have to make for this setup.


Also, I see people listing Nforce bios next to their MOBO bios, like (Bios 703, Nforce 14)

what significance does the Nforce 14 or Nforce 15 have? are there two sets of bios for this MOBO?


Thank you for any info that gets posted here.

Please remove the 2 512 Meg modules and just load setup defaults and set the memory Voltage to 2.0 Volts would be best for over all performance. But if you want to use all four modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667 at 2.0 volts and see if the system is more stable.

I figured the 512 sticks were messing me up and dont plan on using them ever again.


Do I need to change the voltage at all?


I am just asking so I know more about what I am doing and appreciate all the replies, as bad as it is to have my system down, I enjoy learning.


Thanx again
