there is a little silver clip/latch about an 1/8" big. you have to push it away from the battery, then the battery should pop right out. i normally use a tooth pick to push it.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I have an update on my USB issue. This should be useful information for all the club members:
After completing my fresh install of Windows 7, I immediately launched Device Manager (all drives were being properly recognized). The driver tab (under properties) listed two .sys files. At this point I remembered that my previous installation of 7 listed 3 files, one of which did not even have the required certificate. That meant the new driver was installed by something else. As it turns out, this something else was Acronis Disk Director (a popular partition manager). The file is called snapman.sys (in Windows/system32). Simply uninstall Acronis and voilÃ*! Problem solved.

Thank you for the help.
The reason i asked is because i want to restart my BIOS from a previous failed update.At that time the screen was black even though the PC ran like it always did.Of course by removing the battery i`ll take the jumpers next to it as well to see if i can still salvage the BIOS.I`m afraid in a way because a friend told me that i`ll have to change the MB but i won`t have to.
Thanks again for the help.

Thanks for the Validation link AtiViVo. Did you notice how the Validation says Rejected at the top of the validation screen? Maybe you can try a different email address or try to validate it again.

I'm glad you fixed your USB issues giecsar.

So let me see if I understand you correctly. You attempted to flash your bios to a new version and the flash failed? If so your mobo may be bricked if you don't have a removable bios chip. If you bios is corrupted from a bad flash and you do not have a removable bios chip then you may need to send your mobo to asus so they can reflash the bios chip for you... If they say they can not do it they if the mobo is under warranty you may be able to get a better or newer mobo if they don't have your mobo in stock. If your out of warranty and they don't offer to flash your bios chip for you for a small fee then you can still remove the bios chip by unsoldering it and soldering a bios chip socket to the mobo then you will have a removeable bios chip mobo for future flashes. Flashing the bios is a pretty straight forward task but there are several things that can go wrong during a flash. I hope your bios is salvagable and you don't have to RMA your mobo.

Good Luck,

AtiViVo, I wish I could answer that question for you but I don't have any experience with your setup in particular however there are quite a few users in this club running Windows 7. From what I've noticed none of them have been restricted by the new OS when it came to overclocking.

Giecsar, were you using Acronis to re-image your drive?

Good luck

I was not running the hardware you are but I did run windows 7 on mine it it did not hinder my OC or anything else.

What I would do is setup a dual boot with your current OS and 7 x64. That way you can try it out and then decide for yourself. (you can still get win7 RC as well as some of the beta releases you just have to know where to look)

i just switched to win 7 ultimate 64bit.. so far it runs better than xp for me. seems to be nice and stable, have no probs with my oc, and still am able to oc my gpu. somethings load faster than befor, but not many.. boot time is a little shorter.

The Fryer, good to hear. Have you had any driver compatibility issues?

the only issue i have had is with direct x failing to install. it kept going through the install process and right at the end it would say direct x failed to properly install, but then yet my DX games and progs work fine. i have had no other issues, and i didnt have to install any drivers except for my vid card driver, and i had to dl it direct from MS as the one on nvidia would not work.

I have the same DirectX on my XP64 - says there's an error during the installation, but everything works fine and programs like CPU-Z detect a running DX 9.0c .

I noticed it flashed red when I validated my CPU-Z test, but I don't have another mail. I hope it's a not a problem, I assure you, that's my setup.

A rather stupid question, but what is the expected working time-span for a M2N32 mainboard? I've been using mine since 2006 when it was brand new and I hope it would last until another year or so. I've pretty much busted my PC upgrade budget for the next six months...
