ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard not powering up

I am having an issue similar to one posted here. My computer has been working fine for over a year now. I came home, tried to turn it on and nothing. It doesn't make a sound. The motherboard itself is showing a light as if it's getting power, and I'd assume everything is ok, but I just don't know what to do. I've even tried re-connecting the power switch to it's jumpers, and it's not doing anything. Only thing I could think is that maybe the power button itself is messed up. But not sure why. . . Not sure why the power supply would be the issue. It's only a year old, and 500Watts. It's giving power to the board. . . . any ideas? suggestions? troubleshooting which may be lead to a solution? Thanks so much!

Re: ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard not powering up

First of all, here is a small checklist you may follow to troubleshoot this problem: - Disconnect all unnecessary cables and hardware, except the cable going into the power supply. Turn it on. Does the power supply make any sound? If yes, it's probably not the power supply. - Plug in the graphics card, RAM and the power cable to the motherboard. What happens now? This is the bare minimum a computer needs to give any form of sensible output. If you can do this and get back to me on your results, it should give me some more information to work with to get your PC working again.

SOURCE: ASUS P5GD1-VM motherboard not booting when powered on

First are you sure it is the CPU fan and not the Power Supply fan? Open up the case and make sure the power supply cable is snug into the slot. Make sure that Pin 1 is lined up with Pin 1 on the motherboard. There should be a notch or red dot or different looking Pin to show you where pin 1 is...sounds like it may be a connection problem from power supply to motherboard...try that and let me know what happens we have other options but have to start somewhere..

I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard

Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)

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).

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:

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.

Motherboard problem..

It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.

ASUS A8N-SLI memory issues

imondeau, do you still have you're manual for the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium? Please turn to page 2-12 & 2-13.
Need the manual? Click the link below & download it.
The QVL; Qualified Venders List, shows all the tested memory for this board. Edge memory is not supported. This is why the Edge memory only runs by it's self. Once you add the corsair memory they clash because they are not compatible working together in this Asus board. Both sets of memory could work in another board. (Maybe)! What is also needed is if the corsair & edge DIMMs are SS = Single sided or DS = Double sided. How many chips on the corsair? How many chips on the Edge?
They must have the same total chips each each DIMM.

Edge does not sell memory compatible for the
Asus A8N-SLI Premium.
See this for you're self. Click on this link:

Asus A8N sli Premium - sli problems

I went through your bios manual three times & did not come across a setting that gives you the option as you listed above.
What I did come across & triple checked your Manual Pg. 2-28 section 14. Asus EZ selector card connector (144-pin SLI_CON.
When using two PCIE SLI cards make sure the card is seated correctly & set for Dual Video Cards. (extreamly important).
Pg. 4-34, section 4.4.9 SLI mode Recommend kepping to Auto. Than the Bios detects the setting of theSLI selector card.
Refering to the sentance above the manual recommends all settings be set to Auto. Your Bios will do the rest. If for unknown reason you no longer have your manual you can download it from Asus. You'll need to fill in the 3 windows under, Please Select the Product.

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:
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:
