Hey all, I usually use intel chips just because I've had less problems with them during setup. But for whatever reason I decided i'd give AMD another try.
I bought an Asus A7N8X Deluxe 1.06 Revision.
The Chip is AMD 2800+
9200 Radeon Ati AGP Card
1 256mb kingston, 1 512mb kingston ram.
1 WD HD Approx 6gb
1 IBM HD Approx 40gb
I'm having several problems with this machine.
- Slow IDE Detection @ Bios.
- Detect's CDROM @ Bios, Can't Read CD-ROM after bootup
- Won't boot from CD-Rom
- Videocard has Latest Drivers however Desktop Graphics Corruption is Prominent.
- The Graphics Corruption isn't that bad however every once in awhile
the screen goes from semi corruption to full chaos.
What I've done so far.
The bios started out with 1002 so I Flashed that after backing up the original. All of the above problems occured with both bios vers. I'm running 1008 version of bios now. The board is 1.06 revision.
I've downloaded the latest Nforce2 drivers from the Asus Website and Installed those. No change. The Chipset Drivers are bundled in the Utility.
I've downloaded the Silicon IDE Driver package available from the Asus Website as well however this appears to be only for Raid Installs and not general IDE.
I've switched out the new cdrom I bought with a working CDROM i had from a different computer. Same problems.
When in Windows Xp and double clicking the drive I get an error popup saying the disc is corrupted or in a format not readable. The disc runs on other machines no problems.
I'm unsure about what I should do next, If you guys have any suggestions on things I could try that would be wonderful.
