Re: Motherboard ABIT KN8

I just lost my fourth KN8 motherboard and it always seems to take out the power supply unfortuneately. One I returned for the 3 year warranty and as a replacement it worked less than a month. These were on 3 different machines(cases and power supplies of various suppliers) so the mother board is the fault.

Will be hesitant to use ASUS boards again even though this may be isolated to this board only.

Re: Motherboard ABIT KN8

I dont know about the red light, but all main boards these days have a built in protection if the cpu fan quits. check the cpu fan connection, ensure that it and the heat sink are dust free. if still no go. update  your question with exact info..e.g. does absolutely nothing.. how many beeps you long b 4 it dies.. final note: be careful what you touch.. static can harm more that most think and the oil from touching can retain heat.

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:

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.

After pressing POWER button i get 2 long beeps -- thats all -- nothing on the monitor -- nothing at all ... :( ??

Two beeps means that you need to check your RAM. Try changing the RAM module and see if it working? If you have any display card (AGP/VGA/PCI or PCI express) installed then you need to check that it is properly inserted in the slot in the motherboard. Also check for any loose connections in display card.

PCI-E card does not work, onboard video works fine, this is the second card.

The Abit IP-95 manual doesn't show you how to adjust your bios settings when adding a PCI-E x16 graphics card. When adding a PCI-E card you'll need to adjust a few settings within, Advanced Setup.
Press the delete key on your keyboard every two seconds to load your bios menu. Within Advanced Setup look for, Onboard Device Configuration and open it. Find, Primary Graphics Adapter.
Set this to read as [PCI-E, VGA] save your changes and exit.

Currently your onboard graphics is enabled. You'll need to change this setting to PCI-E first. When you use the onboard UniChrome Pro 2D/ 3D Graphics & Video Controller you are also using some of your system memory to run the UniChrome graphics. Once you enable the bios to boot to the PCI-E card you can also stop using your system memory assigned to the UniChrome card. Link to Abit is provided below, click on it to open;

ABIT KN8 Motherboard will not start

Seems like the start-button or the wire connected to it is broken instead of the mobo. Basically when you press the start button you short the 2 cables together. Try replacing any shabby looking parts of these 2 cables, and if here aren't any, try to replace as much of the cables as you can. Just try some basic copper-wire, preferrably insulated, and that should do the trick.

No boot

if you had received a cd with the card that contains drivers i would replace the old vga card and, assuming it boot s okay, load the CD. after this shut down, swap cards, then reboot.

Have abit - kn8 put 2 gig memm in powered up no picture think I have wrong video card do you know proper one

Hey there,

As per ur question, this problem occures due to following reason:

1. When ur data cable of ur monitor is bad : Try another data cable this causes only to blink LED of ur monitor which not allows any graphics to display.

2. Your RAM can also be responsible for this problem: If your RAM goes Bad then it doesnot allow any graphics file to load and thus causing not to display anything on ur monitor screen as well as ur system keep restart at POST (Power On Self Test) Operation (When VRAM driver is not loaded.

and the last reason is:

3. Your system is not able to recognise your Graphics card due to Either IRQ inteferance or ur graphics card hardware problem (caused due to bad of VRAM installed on ur graphics card): Remove ur graphics card from expansion slot (PCI-E/AGP)and then plug monitor data cable to normal serial port available in the motherboard (Resides back side of ur system).


Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.

Problems with pci-e video card.

Try reinstalling the PCI-E drivers or AGP drivers (if you are using that interface) from your motherboard cd and see if there are any problems with that. Check device manage under system to see if there are any red x or yellow flags next to any hardware devices.
