Question about Albatron K8SLI Motherboard
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
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.
