    First of all antera309, many big thnx for your advise on installing Win XP with the A8N32-SLI! I was going nuts over the problem until I found this thread.

    One question though: once everything was up and running, did you ever see Error ID 51 listed in the system event log? The warnings appeared everytime I booted, but after a while, they seem to have disappered for now. I really hope it stays that way....

    Sorry, one more question. My BIOS is currently 1009, but looking at the short description on the asus site of BIOS 1103, it doesn't seem like it includes any major fixes. In your opinion, is the 1103 BIOS more stable than 1009, or should I wait for the next BIOS revision?

    P.S. One more minor question: are your SATA drives listed in the Safely Remove Hardware list?

    My PC Specs:

    ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe (BIOS Rev. 1009)
    AMD X2 4400+
    Radeon X1900XT 512MB
    SATA1: Western Digital 74GB 10000RPM (RAPTOR)
    SATA2: Western Digital 320GB 7200RPM
    SATA3&4: Disabled

    Silicon Image SATA, Parallel, Serial1, Serial2, Game, Midi, 1394 all disabled.
    APM disabled (but wake-on-KB still works - strange...)

    Yes, I get that error occasionally too (Warning 51). Error 7 also refers to the same thing - IVICD.SYS, which is the "InterVideo C/DVD Filter Driver". It installs along with the Intervideo WinDVD software that comes with the mobo. I don't know exactly what it does, but would guess it's for DVD playback. I haven't tried playing a DVD on this machine yet so I don't know whether that's affected.

    Yes, my SATA drives are listed in the safely remove hardware list.

    I am on BIOS 1103 and the machine has been very stable. I do get the occasional BSOD after playing games for hours, but I suspect that this is due to my graphics card getting too hot. I have a Zalman Fatal1ty cooler to fit to it, but I'm a bit scared about invalidating the warranty!!!

    My Error 51 always says there's was error during a paging operation. I haven't installed any DVD players yet. (Since it's only a warning, it can't have been that serious, I guess).

    Anyway, I found a post on the AMDZone forums that said disabling any usused SATA channels should fix it, which is why I have SATA3&4 disabled.

    Although the errors didn't disappear immediately, but only after a few reboots, I stopped getting the errors so hopefully the problems gone, but I'll have to keep a close eye on it.

    Don't know how stable BIOS 1009 is, but I guess I'll have to do a marathon Oblivion session and find out. :) (And now that I've fixed the annoying buzzing sound the onboard sound makes, I can get some perfect gaming!)

    Okay, this seems to be the only thing that works for me too..

    I have a8n32
    corsair xms xpert 2gig
    74gig raptor
    7900GT

    What gets me is, why did this used to work before?? When I originally installed everything before when I had a 7800GT... I decided to clean up and redo my system and then the problems start... I even updated to the latest bios that is supposed to support the 7900... I tried EVERYTHING, trust me... I am glad it's up and running after going nuts for few days before finding this thread.

    This is my first Asus board and I am used to dealing with MSI and ECS. I want to get rid of this board now! LoL Honestly, has anyone tried swapping out the 7900GT with another card?

    I am having problems with a ASUS A8N32 Sli Deluxe too

    I have downgraded to BIOS 1205 after tryin
    g the newest. I will check if get the BSOD wtih the ACPI error again. If so i will send this crappy mainboard and insist on getting a different.

    Sorry for bumping this. I found this forum from a google search. It was one of the good results, so i registered.
