Abit Kn9SLI MOTHERBOARD SHUTS DOWN ??

Hi All,

I have just brought a Abit KN9SLI motherboard its a am2 socket i have put a 3000+ cpu in and 1gb of ram (had lying around) the systems powers up goes , post's i can then either enter set up or wait and it will run the windows disk , i keep getting a message that the cpu has been changed and to save the changes ? anyway if i press f1 it will load the cd run for a while then just shut down ?? but the strangest thing is that after it shuts down my graphics card (pci-e) wont work ? i have to unplug it boot up power down and re-install this sometimes works ? Also i think im reading the manual right but if put the cmos clearing tab on pins 1-2 the system will not power up if i put it on 2-3 it will or if i leave it off altogether it will run(for a bit)?
Sorry for going on just wanted to get it all on 1 post

Thanks for any help/advice

Paul

    I have re-read the manual and having pins 1-2 shorted is the normal setting for the mobo ? if its the normal setting why would that harm my mobo?

    Also the ram i am using is 667mhz my mobo says it will support 800mhz could this be a problem?

    Thanks

If you had read the manual right you would not have attempted to power up with pins 1-2 shorted out.
You have have damaged your MoBo

Hi I am working on a abit A 17 mother board it was taken apart by my nephew. I think I have every thing back togather, but when I turn it on it beeps and shows code 92,well I think thats what the l e d box...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

I have bought 2 Biostar N68S motherboards for HTPC builds. Both of them have the same CPU and RAM. Neither of them will show any VGA output, despite being hooked up to different screens. The other...


The motherboard has a AM2+/AM3 socket, and the processor is AM2, while there is some compatibility between AM2+ and AM2 sockets, it is not guaranteed, so this could very likely be your issue.

Have you tried the 1gb in the motherboard on its own but in different slots. i.e try slot 1 then slot 2 then slot 3 and see if you still get beeps.
