Seems like there are so many Issues with these boards. I have had several Abit boards, with no problems like this.

See thread

https://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=27205

They are apparently overly sensitive? Have I just gotten a bad one? There must be someone who has had great success with them. I bought a new mother board: P4P800 E deluxe

Everyone says" You need to buy" this or that for it to work. I shouldn't have to get a bunch of new hardware to make Asus hardware to work, should I?

Is this board known as an especially difficult board?

Frustrated,

You will see a lot of asus problems come through here. Not sure how it happened, but we were doing a lot of asus support, and it has slowed down a little, but we still handle a good chunk of support for asus motherboards.

I have a P4P800-E deluxe and have had no problems, no sorry I did have some trouble with the realtek sound but a new power supply fixed the problem or maybe the new case with better cooling, but overall I am happy with the performance, I don't run expensive ram or H/D's or the best video but I do think that with new motherboards/ CPU's a good quality power supply is essential

the real problem with Asus is that they have an oligopoly (very close to a monopoly) going...and their tech/customer support is basically nil, because they apparently don't care, which is why ppl probably come here for advice...

basically their products are pretty damn good, but the rest of their company SUX!

power seems to be the cause in an increasing number of cases,due to the fact they don't realise it's importance when upgrading or building

Thanks for everything guys. Sorry If I jumped the gun.

Problem solved:

Copied from original thread: P4P800e deluxe wont boot, fans running

"Thanks,

I double checked all the connections, and jumpers, etc, etc. Nothing.

I returned the board and got a new one. Boots no problem, even with the lame Centon pc3200 ram =)

Maybe I just got a bad one. Sucks though, being my first Asus experience...

I will let you know how the OS and hardware config goes, then maybe even try a little overclocking, as this processor (2.6c ) has been at at 3.6 Ghz before , on air, and I ran it at 3.2 stable for a good 6 months.

I will keep you posted. Thanks to all that tried to help."
