AB9 QUADGT error code 25

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
the other day i decided to test a vcard tat was artifacts in bios, switching coolers, fans, etc. and i decided to do something stupid like leave the vcard in as it was artifacting and try to boot windows. well the pc hung and when i tried to reboot its now stuck on code 25. have tried another vcard, reset bios, pulled the battery out for 10 hours, removed keyboard mouse, removed everything but the core for boot and it is still posting 25. anyone have any suggestions?

Post code 25 ->

"Early PCI Initialization" which includes "Enumerate PCI bus number", "Assign memory and I/O rescorces", and "Search for a valid VGA").

So you switched VGA, KB/mouse, reset bios and even pulled the battery out... Did you remove all other cards(if any) from the PCI slots? I've also heard that a post code 25 can even be associated with faulty IDE cables/drives.

Hope that helps...
