HELP! Albatron K8SLi motherboard not starting!

Hi, I have an Albatron K8SLi Motherboard and it just doesn't want to start. These are the specs I am trying to get it started with: CPU: AMD 64 Memory: DDR 256MB (400mhz) Display: Club NVidia 512MB [brand new] SMPS: 24-pin power supply [brand new] I have tried starting it with and without the ABS rescue bios card and it gives me the same symptoms as follows: 1. After connecting all components (cpu, ram, display, kbd, mouse, power)and turning the mains ON, one red led comes on which is between the 2nd PCI-E slot and the 1st PCI slot. It's printed as "stand-by led" beside this led. 2. Upon turning the board ON by shorting the PWR ON pins on the PWR header, both fans - CPU as well as the SLI chip fan start spinning and remain on until the power is turned off to the board (either from the mains or by the above pins by 5-sec PWR OFF) Also, the above-mentioned stand-by LED remains on (shouldn't a stand-by LED turn off when the device is on?) as well as a red LED near the RAM slots turns on. There is no display on the monitor (Benq 19") This is the way it stays ON until switched OFF. 3. I have tried all suggested combinations of resetting the bios with and without the ABS card, but it still gives all the same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best regards, Quirino Cardozo

Re: HELP! Albatron K8SLi motherboard not starting!

Hi mistyman, thanks for the response. Not much to say about the history really. I didn't get to use the board at all when it was purchased as my wife insisted on getting a laptop around the same time and we got stuck on the lappie!(DELL XPS M1210). So unfortunately the board was never removed from it's packaging so I never knew if it had any problems. When I tried setting it up just recently (about a week or so before I posted my problem) I tried adhering to all the precautions of leaving the bios jumpers on if not using the abs card, etc.

It doesn't accept a memory ram upgrade. I had 512 MB and wanted to install 1 GB but the beeps started to sound.

Hi there,

The beeps are likely related to a memory issue on your motherboard when you boot up. This is usually caused by either getting a bad Stick of RAM, or the specs of the RAM are not compatible with your motherboard. Make sure that the specs of the new RAM is exactly the same as the specs of the old RAM. Each motherboard can only accept certain specifications of RAM. If you have additional questions feel free to leave a comment and I will get back to you on it.

Ok when i press the power button it doesn't a thing! i alredy tryt changing the memory and the fan end everything doesnt work plzzz help me....

Hi, you can download a manual from here:

Please unzip the file before you can read it.

My guess is that your power supply has burned.
You can still buy a new ATX power supply
and its not a difficult task to change it out.

It could also be the on/off switch in the cabinet.
Check the wireing for loose connections.

My motherboard has fried: Albatron KM18G Pro 2003. It no longer seems to be available. For the computer to be exactly as it was before disaster struck, do I need exactly the same motherboard?

Well you do not need exactly the same motherboard. You need a motherboard that has the exact CPU socket, DDR slots and AGP or PCI slot.
Here are the specifications for the motherboard: Processor
- AMD Athlon/Athlon XP/AthlonXP Barton/Duron Processor
- FSB 200/266/333MHz
- North Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 IGP
- South Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 MCP
- I / O Chip : Winbond W83627HF
- 3 DDR Sockets:
DDR200 to 400 non-ECC DDR SDRAM up to 3GB (Single Channel) or up to 2GB (Dual Channel)
Expansion Slots
- 1 x AGP 8X/4X slot (1.5V Only)
- 3 x PCI slots (PCI 2.2 compliant)
IDE Connectors 2 ATA133 channels (up to 4 ATA 133 IDE Devices)
Onboard I/O Connectors
- 1x Floppy Connector
- 2x USB 2.0/1.1 header (4 ports USB cable optional)
- 1x CD_IN header
- 1x COM Port header
- 1x S/PDIF in/out header (S/PDIF in/out cable optional)
- 1x CPU fan header with fan rotation detection function
- 1x System fan headers with fan rotation detection function
- 2x 5 pin system panel header (Intel spec)
- 1x 3 pin Power LED header
- 1x 4 pin Speaker header
- 1x Front audio header (Intel spec)
- 1x Case Open detection header
- 1x Wake on LAN
- 1x 4 pin TV-Out header

So you have to buy a motherboard that has Socket A, that support DDR I memories and has an AGP slot (for the video card).

If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa.
