Question about Abit AS8 Motherboard

2 Answers

I have a Abit As8 that I recently added 2 GB of matching ram to bringing up to a total of 4 GB. It is only showing as 3.25 GB installed. When I remove 1GB of ram, it shows as 3GB installed. How can I get the machine to use all 4 GB? Thanks

The operative system ond some other programs more or less constantly
takes a "part" of the RAMs capacity.(a) Try to reduce the number of autostarted programs, (b) try some cleaning program (c) use a RAM-optimizing program (d) overclock your CP. I take it for granted that you before that has defragmented your HD and that your virtuell RAM-excange file on the HD is optimal. Hope something will help you.//carlstarborg

Unless you are using a Windows 64 bit o/s it won't show all your 4 GB. It will only show a little more than 3 GB as that is all the 32 bit windows will recognise. Hope this helps.

Abit as8 post codes 21


Hello here is the homepage:

http://abit.ws/page/mi/download/download_driver_detail.php@pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=AS8&pSOCKET_TYPE=LGA775

Post code 21, is a memory/ chipset problem.

It could be a problem with a ram module, or a Pci sound card or a graphic card. or powersupply.

Try to remove any add in cards, and try to boot with only one stick of ram.

Good luck

Can't install kvr800d2n6/2g x 4 on aw9d max


What you have purchased is Kingston VALUE RAM. It is budget-priced RAM for generic use. It works well in most cases. I was unable to find an actual 4x3 GB "Kit" on the Kingston site, although I found 2x2 Kits. The problem here may be in matching. The specs for RAM are fairly stringent, but they have variances, and the cheaper RAM is more likely to have such variances. I would try first installing each stick separately in the primary slot and confirming that each is detected. Next place one stick in DIMM 1 and one DIMM 3 slots. This puts one stick in each channel. Each channel operates independently so matching is not an issue. If that works, try adding one stick to one channel or the other. If it fails, swap it to the other channel. The idea is to try to get the sticks matched up as best as possible. Hopefully you will find a happy match-up. Also, check the memory voltage. These sticks operate at a standard 1.8V, but having four installed could be loading down the power supply some and you may need to manually bump the voltage up a tenth or two. Don't go over 2.0V though.

My motherboard does not accept my RAM upgrade. 4 Go ( 4 * 1 Go). Compatibility is OK, i works with 2 Go. With 4 Go : i can't boot, continous beeps ! My BIOS is the most recent. What can i do...


Hi, you can see the specifications here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=KN8+Ultra&fMTYPE=Socket+939

Try to download a manual.

My guess is that your cpu does not support that amount of ram.
The ram must also be at an equal size.
Your operating system must be a 64 bit to handle
more than 3 gb of ram.

I have a motherboard called d102ggc2 with max 2 GB capacity. I recently tried upgrading from 1 GB ram to 2 GB ram by adding another 1 GB stick. The problem is that both the sticks are not working together...


Sounds like the second RAM stick was placed in the wrong slot. I would suggest checking your motherboard manual to determine this. Some motherboard designs have unusual slot arrangements.

2 rams nt working simultaneously


Are they exactly the same brand and model? Sometimes they dont like to mix and match. Say you have the Left and right ram slot. Does each single stick work alone in the left and the right slot? Sounds like you may have a dead ram slot.. :(

1gb shows 512mb only


Your mobo is quite old and its chipset can only support a maximum of 512MB PER SIDE (technically called a bank) of a memory module. I would guess that your 1gb memory module has 8 chips that are all located on one side of the module, putting all of the 1 GB on one bank. Thus, only 512MB of your 1 gb RAM is detected and usable by your motherboard (the remaining 32 mb is most likely being used by your onboard video). You'll need to find a double sided 1 gb memory module (usually 8 chips on each side).
