There was nothing on the keyboard. It will not post or boot. The digital readout on the board starts and stays at FF . It used to cycle through a series of alphanumeric characters before reading FF.
Thanks for your replies and for my backup pc. I almost sold it.
FF = 256 (actually, 255)
Don't know what that means. - possibly memory. DO you have the MB manual?
Anyways, since it won't post I think you are looking at:
Bad memory module
Do this I think:
Can you check another PSU? That would eliminate that right off.
Pull all unneed cards out and unhooking all drives and see if you get a post.
Then check the RAM by putting in just one module at a time (I am brain dead right now - but I think you can do that with your stuff - please check). If not switch the order of the modules and try to get a post.
Check the CPU HSF and make sure it is seated with good thermal compound (not dried out).
I am out of ideas after that - but I am kinda distracted so maybe more/better ones will come.
