Make sure you are grounded and your PC is unplugged, then simply press on your BIOS chip gently but firmly and see if it moves in. I had the same problem as you, RMA'd the board and they tested it and said it was ok, right before I ordered a new BIOS chip it hit me, if I can take the chip out, could it be loose ? sure enough the chip moved just slightly, I then plugged my PC back in and turned it on, it's worked great ever since.
I know it sounds to simple to be a fix, but often times we look for the hard answers first.
I unplugged all of my drives, swapped out ram and even power supplies and it was a loose chip all along that not even the factory caught after an RMA.

I removed my second HD, and all other drive devices(CD, DVD, floppy, + USB mini SD). This did not allow me into BIOS.
Then I switched the Primary IDE connection to my second HD - This allowed me into the BIOS. I then changed the boot priority.
Returned the Primary IDE connection to my primary HD - now the computer starts.

First - back up all recent files before continuing (dah!!!)
Try restarting - Start up screen is crashed but computer still boots up
Connected all devices individually - start up each time - no problems

I think it's a "Gremlin"

Need to do more research

Try removing all IDE/CDROM/Floppy devices from the machine. Then remove extra PCI cards like modems and sound cards (if you have any). Then enter the bios, and reset the bios to it's defaults, and reboot. If that gets to the looking for OS section, then plug each device back in one at a time. Start with the most important devices like the hard drive and Cdrom drive. Then after testing that it still tries to load the OS after each device, you'll identify which one is preventing startup.

A8n-sli deluxe one long beep and end. Please help. Thanks


Hi krzysio007! If you hear a beep once you start the system and it does not go away, this might be the CPU fan not functioning correctly. Try disconnecting the fan, cleaning the connectors and then plugging it back again. I have a similar problem with a motherboard just like yours, and usually the beep goes away after it boots into Windows. Since this motherboard has an Award BIOS installed on it try these error codes: Here. Hope this helps you with the problem!

Does ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE support fan speed changing?


You can research *********** board and drivers at ASUS.com.
You may find a new BIOS update which controls the fan speeds and temp.
If not, you can find plenty of frreware which will handle *********** board.

Problem adding Additional Ram to my Asus A8N SLI DELUXE system


Just because BIOS is recognizing the RAM doesn't necessarily mean it is usable. Also, ASUS recommends that you have the same amount of RAM in each bank. Another point they make is that your motherboard does not support double-sided DIMM chips.

I would refer to the manual for their specific instructions on proper RAM configuration:

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI%20Premium/e2435_a8n-sli_premium.pdf

If you are concerned that the memory stick might be bad, swap it out with one of your older ones, and see if your system boots and performs as it should. If not, then you know it is bad. My guess is that if you populate the memory slots with 4 gb, the system will recognize and make all of it available to you.

Cheers
Nick

Ram problems


Your memory should be in slots A-1 & B-1
You Asus board uses the Award bios. The link posted below will tell you what your beeps are saying.

In your case do as I suggested above. I have two working
A8N-SLI Deluxe boards & the memory works fine in A-1 & B-1 slots.

Good luck & best wishes!

System wouldn't Boot


If your CPU or memory were an issue your Asus board would sound off with BIOS beeps. Asus uses the Award BIOS & you can see what these beeps mean at the link below. Regaurding your PC not able to boot is an issue with your PCIE/PEG video card-in relationship with BIOS setting & the SLI switch card mode that came with your board. When running 1PEG video card you must set this in the BIOS to Auto & you need your SLI switch card connected in its slot. By default, the EZ Selector card is set for a single graphic card. When you install dual PCIE graphic cards on A8N-SLI series motherboards, please make sure EZ Selector card set to the Dual Video Card side and properly inserted. Link to Award Bios beep codes: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Will come in handy.
Reading the FAQ's at Asus site will help you better understand your A8N-SLI Deluxe. You'll need to fill in the, "Please Select the Product" first: http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
