We prove Manin's conjecture for a split singular quartic del Pezzo surface with singularity type 2A1 and eight lines. This is achieved by equipping the surface with a conic bundle structure. To handle the sum over the family of conics, we prove a result of independent interest on a certain restricted divisor problem for four binary linear forms.
