Question about ASUS K8N-DL Motherboard

Asus K8N-dl - second processor present but not running...

I have dual opteron 246s' installed on my K8N-dl motherboard, but the second proc is not running, although I know both work... I am currently not running matching pairs of ECC in the dimms labeled A1- A2, b1 - B2, A3 - b3. IS this why? The machine boots using only one proc and a single installed dim of micron, 1 gig, pc3200, ecc registered mem. Do I need the A3 and B3 slots filled with matching pairs before the second proc will come on? The board works fine and I'm using it to post this. Thanks for any suggestions; please respond if you have a solution!

Actually your 2nd cpu needs a memory to run. You need to add a memory to slot A3. Slot A3 and B3 are memory slots for 2nd cpu.

I fgured out the main issue; that is, I was not using a 8 pin mobo power connector... I love the motherboard, paid $165 for it on ebay; when it retails around 300 - 400. I have never since seen another like it on ebay. A real find and a great mobo. I recommend the Asus K8N-DL, dual opteron Mobo to anyone running dual opteros.

Hi, Mistyman here. All Asus mother boards that have dual channel RAM slot must have equal ram in each slot. In most cases the paired slots are matched by color for easy ID, some are identified by a printed ID on the mother board. With your board you will have to have run all of your RAM for the one CPU. If you have only one stick this must be in slot one. If you are using two sticks then utilise the dual chanel system that ASUS have and use A1 & A3. To activate the second CPU you will need to install matching sticks of RAM in the B slots. both cpu's will need to have the value of RAM to work together properly. CPU one = slot A for RAM CPU two = Slot B for RAM. Goodluck, the ASUS boards are a value product.

How to run 2 opteron processors on k8n-dre


Hi, you can download a manual and drivers here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K8N-DRE&p=5&s=14

Please select your windows version.
Click on the file you want and select global for download.
Unzip the file before installation.

I always recomend to read the manual because there is some
setting in the bios that can go wrong.
Regarding the setup for 2 cpu`s.
And they are difficult to explain.

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..

1 long beep and 2 shorts beeps indicates a problem with your RAM. If you have more than one RAM chip, remove one of them to rule out a faulty chip. If you only have one chip, remove and reseat it. For clarity, you can find the manual for your board at; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=K8N-LR And the Asus general motherboard troubleshooting manual at; http://support.asus.com/images/document/ts/E2437_MB.zip

Remove your system memory. If you have 2 dimms re-seat one at a time with a boot inbetween. Clean the copper with alcohol.
