Question about ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard

2 Answers

I have a asuse (A8N-SLI-DELUXE) with the nforce 4 sli chipset wont let me install any os.

The computer was running slow at first, shut it down, went in to turn it on, didn't turn on. I took the battery out to clear the bios/cmos, turned it on, put battery back in, then the os was missing, so i worked on intalling windows vista, fedora core, linux, suse, all would install, on reboot, the operating system was missing everytime, i re-wired all components to the motherboard, also checked all bios/cmos settings. During the os installs, they were running slow. To me it seems that the install information is not writing to the hard drives, if it is, then something else is wrong, hopefully nothing serious. Need some advice, options, please help.

    Hey! Onlinepc-fix lee,

    Thanks for the tip on bios jumper reset, that was part of the problem, no beeping sense it didn't even turn on.. The unexplainable was how did the pc crash after i turned it off,because the next day upon turning it on, just didn't work, after re-setting the battery, it was missing the operating system. Finally changing some jumpers, along with changing the bios settings, i finally got windows vista home premium on there, and re-registered vista with microsoft, so now im back up running really nice, just have to finish on installing all of my programs. also a few more operating systems. I'm now running around 3,000 gig's, should be smooth sailing from here, if you see my name pop up again it's something serious, check you out later, thanks again.

I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard


Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf

You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:

1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply)
2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply)
3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors.
3) hard drives (SATA or IDE)
4) USB front panel ports
5) Audio front panel ports
6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).

Does ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE support fan speed changing?


You can research *********** board and drivers at ASUS.com.
You may find a new BIOS update which controls the fan speeds and temp.
If not, you can find plenty of frreware which will handle *********** board.

Need m2n sli drivers..help?


Your SLI drivers as you mentioned were installed when your chipset drivers were installed. (NVIDIA nForce CK804 Chipset Driver).
If you use 1 PCI-E graphics card the bios will need to be adjusted to [Auto].
Using 2 PCI-E graphics cards you must install the EZ selector card correctly. See page 4-20 section 4.4 Adjust; SLI Configuration. Than see section 4.4.6 in your manual
Open the Asus link below if you need drivers for your M2N-E SLI;
http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=M2N-E%20SLI

This may seem a bit tricky but its not. First time around the bios settings using SLI graphics cards will appears tough but you'll get it.

Cheers!
Mike

A8N-SLI Deluxe asus motherboard wont boot


first you want to make sure
the power supply works, they can stay on for a week then die, then work again , then die

then disconnect the cd rom, and see if it still has the same problem,

next could be the processor , this would be the cheapest part next in line,
processors get warm when they work
if not , you would replace that before motherboard

you can also disconnect the hard drive a while
to make sure there are no config errors

Asus a8n sli premium


From the Asus support site.

If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory.

Motherboard problem..


It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.

What causes ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe chipset fan and RAID failure


Don't bother with another ASUS chipset fan...
just get hold of a Zalman ZM-NB47J Northbridge Cooler. :thumbsup:

i've been running one of these for a month or so because my chipset fan started to rattle, and make more noise than usual crying2.gif

i haven't had any trouble with passive cooling, maximum motherboard temp is 39C.
i run all my drives on the nvidia controller, and it's overclocked a bit too.

plus you'll enjoy the silence :thumbsup:
