Question about Abit KN8 SLi Motherboard

2 Answers

KN8-SLI newly installed, beeps but no start-up

Just finished installing a KN8-SLI, with 2 bridged GeForce 6800 GPUs, checked and double checked all power and hardware connections, checked them again, turned the power source on, bot the expected leds on the board then hit power switch, got no display, get a constant intermittent beep, every second or so, ongoing. Tried pulling memory, disconnected the RAM, disconnected DVD & CD drives, floppy drive, and tried restart with every removal. CLeared CMOS (recommended by ABIT) at the beginning of all this after the first failed start. Started out with a AMD Athlon 64, then switched to a Sempron 3400 that wa son the board when I got it, no difference. Not many other ideas... can you help???

    I tried it without ANY memory installed, same problem

  • 5schmidts Dec 21, 2008

    so... if the memory is bad and I get a beeping, but then I start with no memory at all, and still get the same beeping, how could it possibly be the memory, since it is not in there to give me any error on any particular stick??? It has to be something else in what is installed giving the same error, regardless of memory installation (I have 4 1G sticks, tried them all , in various config's, no dice!). I Have been reading and reading and saw something about the ATX power being 20 pin vs 24 pin. The board has 24, and the power source has 24, along with the 4 pin with 2 yel, 2 blk wires. Is it possible the power source (Coolmax CXI-500B) is incompatible with this board, or bad?

  • 5schmidts Dec 22, 2008

    OK... I tried differnet sticks in different slots and I guess I never had tried 3 and 4, but when I did, I can get into BIOS now... yay!...? We'll see how much further I get. So now my question is, this thing has 4 DIMM slots, but can only go up to 2 GB??? I have 4 identical sticks of 1gb 400ddr, but only 2 work. Is there anything I can do to expand to the supposed 4GB max?

  • 5schmidts Dec 23, 2008

    I am into BIOS and loading WinXp Pro now, but have a whole new prob, which I will post separately as "Unable to read disk or disk error, press ctrl+alt+del to restart"

  • 5schmidts Jan 12, 2009

    . . . . Just a note to wrap this one up. . . . One of 4 sticks of RAM I had was BAD. I tried several different combinations and isolated the one bad stick, sent it back and they are sending me a new pair...

    that shoul tell you something, the mmemory in and out gives you the same error, means the memory is bad, it should have given you a different code, ok try thismove the memory to each slot and try to boot, sometimes a board will specufy which motherboard msmory slot needs to be used first, and try a stick or different memory, it should have given you a different code with no mem at all, it's not reading it.

    Some boards only like certain ram also depending if it is running only in dual channel it may need to be set for that see in the bios what it loos like and send me a link with a screen shot if you can, but your on the right track, once this grts running right i'm counting on you to give me 4 intead of 2 stars, I just fixed another sli for a guy who works on computers for a living in here. we will get it. Put the big dual core in and clear the cmos, be back to you later, Gym, hesr's a hotmail address georgeburns723@ you know what to put afterthe @.

Non-stop beep sound and won't display


A constant beep, usually indicates the post is detecting no memory installed. This is usually caused by the memory not being installed correctly or incompatible memory. double check you have the correct memory for this mother board. If you have 2 chips, install one and test. If this does not work swap the memory and try again. If both chips fail, you might try a different brand of memory.

Can i put nVIDIA geforce 8600 on my p5sd2-vm


Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card.
However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot.
You will also need to make some changes in your bios.
In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps.
1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system.
2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case.
3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card.
4. Re-connect the power cord.
5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds.
6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual.
7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration
Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22
Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E]
Change Internal VGA to [Disable]
Change Share Memory Size to [Disable]

8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart.
Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @
