Question about Albatron K8SLI Motherboard

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

    I also just tried it with RAM modules of 512MB/256MB/256MB - all together(512+256+256=1024MB) as well as each RAM module seperately. No luck yet.

    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.
    I don't know how much this helps, but that's all there is to it's history.

    P.S.: Today I'm gonna home take my PCI-E display card from the office to test it with the board just to eliminate every possibility... You never know- my brand new 512MB display card could be screwing with me!

    oh yeah, could u please elaborate on what you mean by "standard tests"? I'm not exactly a newbie to troubleshooting, but am not so shy as to ask for some hand-holding... :-)

    hey thanks mistyman, I did check on all ur mentioned std. tests except for the alternative cpu 'cos I just don't have another socket 939 cpu to test it with. I guess I do need to show it to a technician now.

    Motherboard LEDs = As mentioned initially, the led between the pcie and pci slots always remains on(standby led). When turned on, the led near the ram slots lights up and stays on till turned off.

    Fans turning = they start turning upon switching the board on and turn off upon shutting it down. Normal I would say.

    RAM = Tried alternating slots, tried different capacities - seperately and together (512 only, 256+256, 512+256, 256 only)

    Anyways, let's see how this goes. In case something does strike u about this, do give me a holler, I will be checking back...

    Thanks very much for your time and advice.

    Best regards,
    Quirino

Hi, you have tried all the standard test, could you give some history about this board? Maybe one of us can pick something up from that. Awaiting a furthe post, mistyman

    Hi, sorry I was not of any help. The std tests I refered to were as follows: red led on mobo, fans turning, RAM checked by alternating slots and or replacing. Alternative CPU tried.
    As a PC technician I have a couple of diagnostic cards and some DOS software I use when testing boards, maybe its time to see a technician, But remember ASK first about costs of test only before you hand over your board.
    regards mistyman

Hello When trying to turn on my pc I hear a mesage from the voice genie, saying that there is a problem (your CPU might have a problem, I think). I have amd sempron 2500+ socket a albatron kx18d...


Have you tried removing the Cmos Battery? if not remove it and leave it outside for few minutes (5 mins) and reinstall it (do this while the Machine is off). Boot the system again. It's also important to re-seat all the components like, front panel connectors, usb connectors, audio connectors, hard disk, cd/dvd rom, processor, Ram, fan, power connector, etc... and clean whatever you can and then reconnect or reinstall them. If there's no actual cpu failure or motherboard faulty, your problem will be fixed.

I wonder where's that Genie voice came from :-)

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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
Chipset
- North Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 IGP
- South Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 MCP
- I / O Chip : Winbond W83627HF
Memory
- 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.

Your GA-7N400 PRO2 motherboard does not have a built-in video graphics card. You need to install an AGP 8x graphics card into the AGP slot on the motherboard. When you removed the heat-sink & fan assembly the CPU starts to over heat & the CPU will shut down the system. That's why you heard the, european ambulance sound.
If it wouldn’t, you would fry the CPU. Make sure you add thermal grease on to the CPU before re-assembling the heat-sink & fan. Don't forget to plug the CPU fan power connector on to the board.

Your CPU may have a problem


Have you removed all memory, other cards and unhooked all other drives to see if a short exists there? With a 300W PS some other component may be pulling too much that the CPU can't start so it tells you the problem is with the CPU or The CPU its refering to is on the video card? Good Luck, Tim
