Question about Abit KN8 Ultra Motherboard

1 Answer

ABIT KN8 Motherboard will not start

I have an ABIT KN8 mother board which has been working fine up untill now. Now it will do nothing! I have changed the power supply out for a good one and the only way i can get any life out of the motherboard is the short out the startup connection on the ATX motherboard connector (Black and Green wires). Has anyone had this problem and have you got around it? Don't realy want to buy another motherboard if i can help it.

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.

KN8-Sli Video Won't work..Checked Power & Graphics card


Bios upgrade on the board, or video card. And have you had the mother board checked to make sure all the caps, v-regs and everything are fine?

Can't install windows XP on my KN8 ultra


I believe you are using a sata drive not ide, correct? The problem is that vista has built in drivers to support your boards sata/raid controller, winxp does not. to work around this you need to go here -
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php?pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=KN8+Ultra&pSOCKET_TYPE=Socket%20939
Abit website. for your board - socket 939. KN8 ultra file called NVRaid Installation disk. click on picture, it will download the zip file. extract the files to an empty folder (create one). Then run RFDgen.exe program. It will create the floppy you will need. I hope you have a floppy drive, if not try a usb one. If it has a problem creating the floppy, copy the files in the folder floppydisk to your floppy. there is a readme.txt file in that folder as well that should help explain which option you should select when you install windows. So... once you have the floppy start your computer up with xp disk in and as the screen turns blue, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message - press F6 to select additional drivers. Do just that, a couple of times to be sure. then it changes to press F2, just sit back and wait. eventually it will come to a screen asking if you want to specify additional drivers. press S and the next screen will show you the drivers it found on the floppy. select the one for your configuration (can be changed in the bios). and then windows will load fine. this is necessary for all new systems with sata/raid installing xp. take care.

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.

One long beep.


  1. Leave the memory slot closest to the processor empty and try booting again. Award bios 1 long beep is memory error as the first 64K of the ram stick closest to th processor is accessed first. since you have tried different ram in different locations, let's rule out the board.
  2. If that doesn't solve anything try a different power supply. Sometimes (Phoenix) gives a long beep when system board or power supply are bad.
  3. Now if nothing else has worked it is probably tour mother board.

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 hear..how 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.
