Rig won't post

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My sig rig won't post. I just did a trade for the board, and the cpu is brand new. Other than that everything is from my old rig that worked 3 days ago. I tried a cmos reset, that didn't work. When I hit the power the lights all come on like its going to post and then no post or video output. The first time I fired it up I got code 65 on the board, since then all restarts have just gotten -- in the code lcd on the board.

After another cmos reset I got error code C3 then back to the -- on reset.

Your talking about the board in your sig right? If so, do you have the manual. I have that board, the book says that a C3 code is Extend Memory -"Turn on extended memory, cache initialization". I don't know if that helps.

I have no clue what that is, and if I have to get to the bios then it doesn't matter because I can't get that far.

Ok I did a 4 hour cmos pull and when I rebooted I got two long beeps, and then the lcd reads "C1" I am pretty sure this is a cpu incompatibility issue but any other thoughts are welcome.

Try to boot it with a generic stick of memory.
Then go to bios and set the memory voltage to wherever the memory that you are going to use requires.
Save to bios and then shut off.
Install the memory that you are going to use then restart.

Are you sure your motherboard's BIOS includes the microcode for an E8400? try to update the BIOS with a chip that you know works, and then see if you can boot...

What cpu did you have on it before? That error code is for the cpu I believe. does it not support teh E8400? might need a bios update

I talked to the guy he says it has the latest bios, I bought this board and the cpu, so I never ran anything else.
