well, i got it running simply by doing what i have done before, clicking the button till it runs well

now i got the os on but my usb mouse is going real slow, but the system runs fine and quick.
I still have not shut it down so i dont know if it will start up again

very peculiar problem...also, when you have the motherboard out of the case, what are you doing to turn the system on? do you still have it connected to the power button on the case?...or are you using a jumper to start it? because if it's with the case button it may have a short in it that causes it to think it's being held and cause it to shut down

im using a jumper, but it isnt the button on the case because it worked twice on the case button,

it's just a 1% chance it will work or not, any way i turn it on

I think the mobo is DOA....but its really hard to tell with it working some of the time and some not

okay....try pulling out the CPU and putting it back in....also...if you can get it to boot again it might be worth trying to update the bios as it seems that board has a little bit of a problem with the higher end X2's

also look at this thread
Asus M2N32 SLI Deluxe - Shut itself down 5 seconds after turned on - EXTREME Overclocking Forums



edit: crap...i double posted...can someone merge the posts?
