1GB Models are good for resolutions higher than 1680x1050

Your PSU is really only a good 550watt PSU. As it only has 528watts on the 12v rail.

8800GT/9800GT both use just 1 6pin PCIe connector.

If your resolution is above 1680x1050 then your CPU just won't matter any more.

Oh man. Put in my M2N32 today with my new TRUE120 and it wouldnt post. Tried everything and then finally last thing I did was put in my old 8800GTS 320MB and yay it POSTed. When I had my 4850 in I was getting 1 long beep and 3 short ones and some somes it would do that then 4 short ones and not display anything. Ive been Googling and I found that 1 long and 3 short is either video card error or RAM. And this guy with the same motherboard but a 8800GTX had the same trouble.

Would upgrading my BIOS (Currently 1802) make my 4850 work?

It may help but it sounds more like a hardware issue to me to be honest. I'm thinking maybe your GPU is defective, your Power supply is on it's way out or your motherboard is starting to have PCIe lane issues. Have you tested the Power supply and GPU in a different machine yet?

Just a quick post.... it appears that my hopes of upgrading my M2N32-SLI deluxe was short lived. After I ordered a Phenom 940 for the upgrade, my motherboard began having problems booting. I'd have to cycle the power supply right off and back on after 30 seconds several times to get it to boot. When turning the power back on, the lights on my card reader came on, indicating that power was getting through the usb port without booting the board. So... I grabbed a cheap Asus board to replace it. I got an M4A78-EM for cheap and it works fine with the ram I had and the new 940 cpu. Too bad, I really liked that M2N32 board. Now I'm short a Sata port but it'll do until Asus brings out a suitable replacement for the M2N32.... the Crosshair only has 5 sata connectors so that won't do...... There are a couple of other nice boards out there but nothing quite like the M2N32 SLI deluxe. Enjoy your boards as long as they last!

Regards

Christian

Was just trying to flash my Bios, and it gave me an error then blacked out.

Can't remember what it said exactly, but it was something about mis matching info or something like that; I remember thinking that I forgot to reset my CMOS before doing the flash.

It won't boot now and I'm worried I may have corrupted the BIOS.

I'm currently letting it sit unplugged and resetting the CMOS.

Is my mobo toast?

danzo, Your mobo would not be toast if you just corrupted your bios. There is something called crash free bios on these mobo's and is suppose to allow you to recover a bad flash. How well it actually works I can not say. I know when I flashed one of my mobo's to the 2205 back when it was a beta file slightly different from the official version available for download now I thought my mobo bios was a goner. Some how I was able to get it to POST and start working again up until I had to RMA the mobo A bad flash can make your mobo very unstable and hard to re-flash but not intirely impossible.

Good Luck,

N2G

Well,

I had the 1304 BIOS set on mine prior to the flash which was a Beta version and I wanted to flash it back to 1202 which is an official BIOS because my Windows 7 was acting up so I figured I should try to flash it back.

Is there a special procedure for "back" flashing a bios? From Beta back to official per se?

Oh, and my computer isn't posting at all now... oh knows.

Flashing back to an earlier bios version works the same way it would if you were to flash it to a new bios version.

The biggest hassle on your hands atm is getting your system to post. Remove any periferals not needed to lessen any strain you may have on the mobo/PSU. You don't need aany HDD's & CD ROM drive if your using USB or floppy to flash your BIOS and you don't need 2 GPU's or any other expantion cards for sound, nic, video capture and so on.

Pull all but one stick of ram and try to get your system to post. Let it try to post for a long time it may take a few minutes to POST. Also when you have the battery out of the mobo during your CMOS reset you should push and hold the power button to drain any residual power out of the CMOS circuit and you can also do the same w/the reset button. Some suggest inserting the CMOS battery backwards but I prefer not to use this method unless it's my last resort prior to shipping the mobo off on a RMA. IF you have a removeable BIOS chip you may be able to have some one hot flash your chip for you on another identical mobo that is working.

They were both working before I switched motherboards.

Also on a good side note, I have my 6000+ at 3.4Ghz, HT Link at 1310Mhz and my RAM at 972Mhz! I put my CPU volts at 1.5625 (CPU-Z Reckons 1.6), RAM 2.05 I think, NB HT 1.3, NB-SB 1.275, test of the volts stock.

I haven't tested for stability yet except for a quick 6 minute one on Prime 95. And I installed my TRUE and it has 2 fans for a push pull and I put them at full speed 2100RPM and my CPU still got as hot at 56C, which is still a fair bit. Only noticeable temp drop is the idle which is around 30C which is quite good for 3.4Ghz at 1.6v

This is BALLS. You weren't joking about this being a hassle.

I should've just left my BIOS alone.

Off to class, will rip it out and fiddle with it some more when I get back.
