Check FP_AUDIO pin settings. FP_AUDIO is located just below the CD AUX. See page 1-6, Motherboard layout.
There should be a jumper over pins 9 and 10 and pins 5 and 6. This is the default setting chassis rear MB audio output.
See page 1-22.

Unfortunately the audio chip is soldered to the motherboard. Most newer Asus MBs the audio chip is not soldered and can be replaced by calling Asus.

A possible work around would be to disiable the AC'97 in the bios and add a PCI audio card.

No audio


If this is a desktop make sure you plug the speakers into the correct port and that the speakers are turned on and the volume is up. Also check the Audio and Sound Properties (Volume Control) to make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Try downloading and installing the VLC Player, it comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many issues with sound.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

Also if this is a desktop, you can always purchase a pci sound card that goes into one of the available pci slots for less than $15.

I have an Asus K8N-E motherboard which does not seem to support booting from USB. Any suggestions?


You must configure the BIOS prior to booting up from USB. With the USB inserted, go to the BIOS setup and change the boot priority as explained on the official user's guide from ASUS (page 61):

anaging and updating your BIOS
The following utilities allow you to manage and update the motherboard

2.
ASUS AFUDOS
(Updates the BIOS in DOS mode using a bootable floppy
disk.)
3.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
(Updates the BIOS using a bootable floppy
disk or the motherboard support CD when the BIOS file fails or gets
corrupted.)
4.
ASUS Update
(Updates the BIOS in Windows
®
environment.)
Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to K8NVM.ROM.

Recovering the BIOS from the support CD
To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.
4. Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing
so can cause system boot failure!

ASUS K8N-DL Dual Opteron MB


Sounds to me like you have a bad board/socket 2. Is there a setting in the BIOS to enable the second socket? Only use 1 stick of known good RAM till ya get the problem solved.

K8n-dl mb does not post. only action that comes is beep/beep off/beep/and on and on. This is with only one processor in and no ram. put pciexpress video card in and screen is blank. put second processor in...


The beep beep code is an audible code telling you that you have no Ram installed. You cannot run this board without system ram. Fit some system ram and connect a video card and a drive. Make sure both cpu's are fitted and try again. If it still beeps, note the length and number of beeps and go to the ASUS website. You can find the audible codes in the support section under bios fault codes..

ASUS K8N-VM mother board win98 drives


Try going to the Asus website and look for support for your MB drivers and Operating System.

If there is no longer any Win98 support for your MB then I suggest a fresh computer and more recent software for less hassle!
A ten year old OS indicates to me that you might be stuck until you go with the flow!
Cruel but true.
Hopefully the recent cheap prices for computers pre-installed with Vista or XP will persuade you.
