I have a problem with my computer that has a A8N in it. I have hooked up all the components. The problem I have is when I try to power up, there is a split second of power, and everything works (the fans spins and lights come on), and then the whole system turns off.
Sounds like the power supply is overloaded. Is this a new configuration? Start removing components until it powers up. If it still doesn't power up, check to ensure you don't have a short in any of the connectors that you installed components into. Sometimes when a video card, memory DIMM, or whatever, gets installed, there is a chance that a connector pin will get crushed and short out to nearby pins. If none of those work, you might want to try a larger wattage power supply. Good luck.

Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...) http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf
You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:
1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply) 2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply) 3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors. 3) hard drives (SATA or IDE) 4) USB front panel ports 5) Audio front panel ports 6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).
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.
Yes, you do. Your board was built with the idea to use 2 graphic boards to get great video
NVIDIA® SLI™technology revolutionizes PC performance by combining multiple PCI Express GPUs in a single and scalable system! Gamers and hardcore enthusiasts know that dual GPUs mean increased, supercharged 3D graphics and performance
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.
