    I've experienced following problems with this mainboard (EPOX 8RDA3+):

    1. System hangs-up when hdd is hardly stressed for a few minutes (for
    example during cd recording with 48x speed).

    2. There is some problem with STR (Suspend To Ram), system can't "wake up"
    after STR (screen is blank - monitor is off), and after that mainboard is
    giving only "beeps" - the only solution is "hard" reset (ctrl+alt+del is not

    Rest of my hardware:
    Athlon 2000XP, 2x256 MB DDR (333 Mhz), Pixelview G-Force 4 Ti 4200, SB Live,
    Realtek-based LAN, Fly Video 2000S (TV card), Seagate Barracuda 60 GB, CD-RW
    Lite-ON LTR-48125S, CD-R Teac CD-540E.

    Operating system:
    Win XP Professional (SP1, and all updates from Windows update), newest
    NForce drivers from NVidia homepage.
    Earlier all this hardware was working on EPOX 8K3A, and everything was OK...

    I will be very pleased for any help or suggestion...

    Try to flash your bios with a newer version.

    You did not mention what brand and speed your ram is. Nforce2 is pickier on
    ram. This could be the root of all your problems.
