Hello, I recently purchased a couple of motherboards and have been having considerable problems with them. they are the ASUS P4S800-MX SE (second edition) motherboards. the problems are that i am receiving various stop errors when loading windows XP (on one of them) and the other Windows XP has loaded(after a couple of failures) but i am receiving stop errors at random times. I went to the Asus website to search for a latest Bios but latest one seems to be the following P4S800-MX SE beta BIOS 0202 Last Beta BIOS. I'm not sure if i should install a beta version I have uses good a good hard drive etc + changed the memory but still no luck. Some of the stop error messages and other errors are as follows. STOP IRQ_NOT_LESSTHAN_OR_EQUAL_TO STOP PAGEFAULT_IN_NON_PAGEDAREA Problems related to Microsoft Kernel Acoustic Cancellation and Sysaudio.sys Driver Hope you can help, been stressing over the problem all weekend. Thanks Mohammed

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Run Memtest. I’ve had lots of memory problems lately even with top of the line RAM like Crucial and OCZ. If you have memory problems check the timing and set it manually if you have to. I’ve had some ABIT boards that automatically set the memory to 201MHz and they wouldn’t work. I set them to 200 and they worked fine. ??? Joel

    I recently had a simular situation and it turned out to be a bad floppy drive of all things. Once I replaced the floppy the XP installation went fine.

    Thanks for your feedback iv'e tried changing the memory a couple of times didn't seem to work. A common problem (Apart from Various Stop errors) is also that for some strange reason files cannot be read from the DVD drive, even though i tried 2 diff windows CD's. I think it might be a motherboard since similar problems are occuring on comps with the same motherboard, its an Asus P4S800 mx SE i.e. second edition, which has just been released, cant find a latest Bios version.

    The IRQ error occurs in the case of conflicts between devices.Try to identify the device linked to the driver module indicated in the Stop message. Remove the conflicting hardware to determine if this resolves the issue.If the problem persists, identify other devices using the same IRQ by using Device Manager or System Information. Then remove all devices using the same IRQ and reinstall them one at time until you can reproduce the problem. Check for updated drivers for the problem device on the manufacturer's Web site. U can boot the pc in safe mode and confirm whether it is a driver problem.B'coz drivers wont load while booting in safe mode.

    What I suggest is removing all hardware that's not needed to power the computer, ie sound cards, modem cards, floppy drive. Remove all DIMMs except one. Try again to install Windows XP. If the installation still won't run, then the likely culprit is your motherboard. But, before coming to a conclusion, eliminate the CDROM as being the possible cause of the problem. If it installs, complete the installation and then reinstall one of the removed cards at a time. Rebooting after reinstalling each item. The card that is the likely problem will likely give you a blue screen. Remove the malfunctioning part and you should be on your way.

    I would echo another person's post here. You might have tried all the memory, but if the timing is broken it will exhibit these symptoms. Memory is the most difficult thing to troubleshoot, because you have to be very detailed in your testing to determine between the motherboard and the memory. I highly suggest downloading the ISO of Memtest86, and running a full scan of the memory. If it all checks out, then start eliminating other devices.

    As previously alluded to, restart the computer which is working in Safe Mode: although many devices will not function properly, does/do the STOP error(s) recur? If not, I would bet that you have a driver problem. The IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error usually indicates an issue with a driver of some sort (ATI video drivers are a common, but not exclusive source of these issues). Is there a module shown after the STOP error? What is the "Ox" code gived (ie: Ox0000000A or similar). There is some fairly extensive troubleshooting info here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;818501 but you'll need to have "symbols" installed on the machine which is analysing the memory dump. Of course, analysing a mem dump is a bit of a black art in and of itself.... The error: STOP: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA usually indicates, again, a driver issue. BUT - if you are receiving an 0x code of 0x00000050, or 0x0000008E look here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315335 as this indicates a memory issue (as someone has stated previously for this discussion). Good luck with your troubleshooting...
