asus m3a78-em issues
« on: July 10, 2010, 09:32:31 pm »
Hello,
   I am using my asus m3a78-em as a diskless MD, and with UI2 medium and UI2 with alpha blending the screen flickers while the onscreen orbiter is up, as well as no sound all via the HDMI. I've seen posts in fourms and wiki's saying that people have resolved these issues, but I cant find the part on how they resolved them. Can someone help me with this or push me in the right direction. I am using 0810.

Thanks

The asus m3a78-em uses an HD3200 GPU from ATI - this is the cause of your problems. ATI GPU's are not supported - you might have some success if you run UI1 and a slim chance of UI2 + Overlay but you would be best advised to install an nVidia card.

I would recommend installing one of the recommended nVidia GPU's - see the many threads here in the Forum on that topic or consult the Wiki.

All the best
