Ive put together 5 computers with the asus a8n sli motherboard with the amd 64 4000 + chips and had a few problems with them just rebooting on there own.. But two the the computers in the same house both seemed to give the blue screen and then they just wont start. Could some one shed any light on this .. I was thinking maybe its a power problem since there both in the same apartment the 3 other machines havent giving me any problems but there not at the same location. Any help at what could be causing this would be appreciated..
Thanks

I had a similar issue with my a8n-sli build. I finally got it to post when I tried to boot with only 1 stick of ram. Although I can't remember which slot finally worked so I could then use 2 sticks of 512.

It is devoted to Asus motherboards and was very helpful when I was building.

when I built a system using that mobo...had some problems...turned out to be using just one stick of RAM required it be put in slot 3...found that in the mobo manual...I always start with one stick in a new build to reduce the number of things that can cause problems...after getting it successfully built and booted and windows installed I start adding any extra memory or PCI cards or add ons...hope this helps...
