Question about Gigabyte K8N-SLI (GAK8NSLI) Motherboard

1 Answer

When i boot Gigabyte K8N-SLI a long beep is heard untill completely booted

When i boot up my mobo it starts but a loong beep from about a minite or a minute and a half is heard, The strange thing is that my fan on the cpu stops untill this boot is completed. it runs like a champ but it is annoying and i am a fraid that it will cause some trouble with the cpu in the long run. I have upgraded the BIOS to version 9. is there someone who has the same problem i swapped memory out and in different banks. it look like it starts when i get the video message on the screen. video card Radeon 1300 with DVI. Thanks in advance for any help

    This is a brand new mobo and graphic card. the reason was a mobo fialure from Asus that i swapped it out. I will try this tip. thanks for your help.

    I bought this one with the mobo, But how is it possible then that after the boot i have no issues at all anymore. Is there a possibility that that this can be caused by temperature. The time of the beep is different each time. and when i reboot you don't hear it at all, Like i said it work like a champ after the first boot you don't hear it anymore.

    Thanks

Long beeps can indicate a processor or board failure, but i would check your graphics card first, uninstall it in device manager and then remove and reseat the card. Although i think there is mobo failure imminent

    If you know the mobo is good, then perhaps the processor is your only other problem.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

I own a GA-K8N-ProSLI Motherboard from Gigabyte. When I power it on, it boots normally till it gets past the POST. Afterwards, it just completely locks up and all hardware buttons cease to function (Power,...

Remove the hdd and try again. If now you can enter the BIOS and check that everything is correctly recognized and configured then the hdd has died, replace it. If it's the same then start by checking the power source, followed by the memory and the CPU. If all these are functioning then the problem is in the motherboard itself - unfixable, replace it.

Can a Gigabyte K8N Pro SLI mobo support a PCIe 2.0 video card?

Hi Rachacha!

I have lait a few moths.
Off course, you can use the pcie 2.0 card on pcie 1.0-1.1 mobo, but the card effiency is only 90%, because the mobo have not enough power for the card.

Best regards

Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro-SLI won't boot and no beep codes

hi kathy,

there are a few things you can try, reseting the cmos, with the jumper usually located near the battery. if you cant find that, try removing the battery for 30 mins and then popping it back in. if no luck from there, you could try another cpu, if that dont work then it may just be the mobo! good luck!

hope it helps!

NX7800GTX-VT2D256E and MSI K8N Neo4/SLI

What's the specs on your power supply. For SLI you need a good quality 500W+ PSU with lots of current on the 12V rails. Remember that all the drives, memory, fans, cpu, etc will use a lot of power, if there is not enough capability in your PSU, the voltage may drop low enough to stop it starting up.

CMOS battery drains after one startup. Gigabyte GA-K8N-SLI

OK lets see here! Make sure your CMOS jumper is set properly on the board(Set to Normal) or Did you configure your bios after flashing the bios(going into bios and Load Optimized Defaults!)? or I don't think it would be another device in the system, but you can try troubleshooting by starting up with only what you need to run the machine (Mobo, memory harddrive, keyboard and mouse) then one by one adding devices back! or Did you have problems like this b4 you flashed the bios! Try flashing the bios back to an older version! post back if anything new or if i'm way off! Good Luck regards, babb
