Question about ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard

Systenm kicks off right at power-up

I have an A8N-SLI Premium mobo with an AMD Athlon x2 4800+ and a recent Aspire 650 watt PS. The machine was working fine, and all of a sudden, while using it, it lost all power. When trying to re-start, the CPU fans all kick in, the drives start, but after one or two seconds, it looses all power. I have to unplug the PS, and then if I try to restart, it does the same thing. I have taken it back to a barebones system, unplugged all the power to the board and hardware and re-pkugged it all back in, and blown out the case well and the same thing keeps happening. Everything was working fine up to the sudden de-powering. Any ideas, please?

Want to upgrade to amd athlon 2

Hi........Socket 939 is an outdated processor and not compatible with Athlon 2. You may find a 939 dual core on ebay, but suggest you save up for an AM3 mobo. Hank

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.
