It appears that the manual for the GA-K8N-SLI, Pro-SLI, and Ultra-SLI states you can use 1 GB, 2 GB, or 4 GB as a memory configuration. The 3 GB is not supported (possibly because one bank would be dual mode and one bank is single mode). The 1 GB configuration should have one stick in slot 1 or 3. The 2 GB configuration should have a stick in slots 1 & 2 or 3 & 4, but 1 & 2 is preferred.

Greetings.I have GA-K8NE motherboard.My question is which is the best processor i can upgrade? My current processor is AMD semprom 2600+.thank you!


Hi!

The best processor you can use with your GA-K8NE ( socket 754) is the AMD Athlon 64 3700+ Newcastle. It has 1MB of L2 cache, system bus of 1600 MT/s.

This processor is supported on both revisions of the motherboard (rev.1.x and rev 2.x)


Regards,

Bogdan

Outdoorsman_197i have a memory problem with a ga-k8n -pro mother board i put a 1 gig stick of memory in it and it only shows it as a 256 stick and suggestions what could be doing this


Here is the link to your manual which states that the motherboard should recognize up to 4 Gb of DDR ram, 1Gb max in each of the 4 slots:

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents. You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, and then just follow the onscreen instructions to install it.

One way to find out for sure how much RAM is in your computer and how much it can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.


Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Asus A7N8X-X (third memory slot)


Sounds like either a bad stick of memory or a bad dimm slot . Have you tried the memory on another motherboard ?

Installing 2 sticks of 1 gb ram = DRAM error beeps


If the computer is working with one gb stick and not the other, try this:

Swap the sticks with the one that does work. If it works then its the memory card slot on the motherboard. If it doesn't boot up, then it's the memory stick.

I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.
