Question about Soltek SL-K8AN2E (SL-K8AN2E-GR) Motherboard

1 Answer

Red Light on Board

I upgraded my power supply from a 350W that came with the case to an Antec TruePower Trio 650W and my computer doesn't start. With my old power supply the red LED near the 20 pin connector and RAM is on continuously. With the new power supply it flashes. What does this LED mean? Bad Power Supply?

    More or less the same problem...when I plug the main power conenctions, the light comes on and things seems to be starting - but only for about 2 seconds and then it just powers down again. If I remove the 12V 4 pin connector, all the fans and hard drive will power it seems to be an issue with the 12V connector. But I can't figure out what. Same motherboard SL-K8AN2E-GR with a 450w power supply.

It is better to use the old power supply because it is compatible to your mother board

Computer power supply does not work

Need to know how old a computer it is as over the years the power supplies' use different methods of starting.

On newer computers the power supply is connected to the mother board by a 20 or 22 pin connector. The power button on the computer is just a momentary switch to start the computer. Make sure the large connector is firmly seated in the mother board. If you are comfortable with doing that have someone else check it. You do not want to damage the connector or mother board. You need to have some sort of anti static device conntected to your body to avoid any static discharge that could damage the mother board.

I have an Antec full tower with a 350W power supply it seems somewhat old...i hooked everything up inside and tried to turn it on but it would not turn on any suggestions?

First, is there power from the power supply? Is the power supply turned on in the back? If there is powere to the Mobo, then the mobo is likely the problem. The cpu fan fan should spin if there is ower to the board.

Power supply will intermittantly not turn on when start button is depressed. After a period of time, it will start. Ten or 20 minute wait period insufficient. Sometimes successfull after several hours. No...

This could be one of two issues: Your motherboard may be set to shut down when your CPU reaches a low temperature, which can be fixed by getting into your computers' BIOS settings...Or replace your power supply.

Gateway may have a unique non standard pinout for its P/S. I would match up the colors in sequence on the new PS and see if the old harness had the 6 pin connector and graft them into the new harness. The colors are standard for voltage.
