Problems with new PC Asus P5N-E SLI and TWIN2X2048-8500C5D G


Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble installing an operating system on my new hardware. Tried XP Pro and Vista Home Premium. XP hangs when configuring network. Vista hangs during the expansion of files around 32%.


Have updated Bios to latest for MB.

I downgraded my bios to the next to last version from Asus and the system was a whole lot more stable. I was able to install XP pro on it and do all updates and install all the drivers. The system still locks up randomly maybe once every 4 hours or so, and not under stress. For example just opening IE and going to a web site. Won't have much time to work on this until the week-end but any additional help is appreciated.


Will try with one stick at the time.
