    Hi Folks

    Some asistance please I'm trying to get a new A8N-SLI Premium up and running but
    with no success. I bought it new from a "Specialist" Supllier as part of a
    "Matched Bundle" together with a pair of Corsair memory sticks
    (CMX1024-3200C2PT) and an Athleon 3700 Processor.

    Problem is it doesn't boot won't even POST. Tried everything suggested by the
    retailer and have sent the MB back to them for testing. They have returned it
    saying it tests OK. So what is the absolute minimum I need to install to get it
    to at least POST and point me in the right direction? DO I definately need to
    Have CPU, memory and graphics card?

    The only other items thay may be an issue is the graphics card a Leadtek WinFast
    PX6600 GT TDH it's second hand but I don't have another MB I can test it on and
    the Power Supply which is an OEM unit with the following spec:

    Switched power supply
    110/220 V switchable (220 V: 5 Amp/ 110V:10 Amp)
    + 3.3 V 28 Amp
    + 5 V 45 Amp
    + 12 V 25 Amp
    Max. 275 Watt
    -5 V 0.5 Amp
    -12 V 0.8 Amp
    - 5 Vsb 2 Amp PEAK 2.5
    Max. 650 Watt

    This works fine with by other MB an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe.

    Any help Vert Very much appreciated

    Pete

    Try putting the ram into B1 and B2 slots and see if it posts. My
    brother had the same board and thats the only way he could get it to
    post. I told him it was a retarted idea because he isnt running the ram
    in dual channel mode, but hes done it anyway and doesnt seem to be
    losing any performance

    No answers yet.

    What happens when press the power button ?
    Do the fans spin ?
    Is the led on the MB on ?
    Is the memory in the blue sockets ?
    Have you tried just one memory stick then just the other ?
    Is the graphics card in the top (blue) PCI Express slot ?
    Is the speaker connected - any beeps ?
    Do you get any beeps without the graphics card ?
    Do you have a PCI graphics card to try ?

  4. Try with no-name memory...
    I had a same pb with A8N-SLI-Deluxe and Corsair mem that was not reconized
    with the BIOS.
    Install no-name memory, install the last BIOS and then plug your new mem.

    hi

    remove the mb from case and install just cpu, 1x mem module, connect system speaker if not
    onboard, connect mb + power -> start! (yes! no gf)

    if this dont awake it, remove mem and retry!

    system speaker should say something, or better if this mb have a post code module or post
    panel, use it!!

    if no success this mb/cpu/psu is broken!! (swap test with any known good unit)

    if ok, connect gf and redo!

    if ok, add second mem module.....

    Your brother has a faulty motherboard. Don't you agree?
