The A8V has a VIA chipset, not nforce. So this isn't the cause. Mobo also isn't defective: from the fact that Ubuntu is now running without problem I figure that it wasn't a hardware issue after all.

Problem is: I've already disabled it and put in an e100 pro. I've even
tried putting one SATA drive on the Promise controller and the other on
the VIA. No change. I've exchanged the memory for the second time, now
it has Dane Elec RAM chips. No effect either. The PSU is an Antec
TruePower 430 W, should be ok. By now, I'm actually thinking of
installing <OMG>Windows</OMG> on the machine to see what happens. Or

I suspect that your mobo is defective. Put Windows on the box and check it
out. That way you know for sure and youc an return it.


Might read the following article .. http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=21780

Ubuntu. I even installed 32bit SuSE to see if that would help: it
didn't. I could buy some Crucial RAM chips, but I'd like to make sure
that'll actually help.

Don't throw any more good money after bad hardware.

Just my 2 cents.

Best regards, Alex.


Are you running the Ubuntu 32-bit or 64-bit ? I looked them over a few weeks ago & it didn't sound like they had 64-bit AMD going ....
