!Foxconn MOBO Instabilty!
I just built a computer for a friend and have been having trouble with it.
Socket 940 Foxconn NFPIK8AA-8EKRS MoboAMD Opteron DualCore 64-bit Processor@2.4Ghz
1Gb Registered RAM
Evga GForce 7800GT 256Mb
Twin SATA 350Mb Drives under XP
Cooled by liquid coolant.(Giant reserator Aluminum Heatsink)
(Oh yea! I was drooling all over this one!)
Well, anyway, here goes. I installed Windows XP professional on his computer and the computer boots up fine. Approximately 20 minutes to half an hour with the computer on, it either unexpectedly cuts off or flashes the blue screen of death. Lately it has been showing a corrupt boot sector and of course causing me to come all the way from my house to his to write him a new boot sector from the Windows Repair. I checked all of the connected cables and could not find anything out of place: SATA Power and Data cables not jarred in any way, brand new hard drives. (Dodged my HDD suspicions) Jumpers were in the right place, Coolant system on correctly,(there wasn't much to look at) I've updated drivers from Foxconn and NVIDIA. CMOS set to default. The computer still haunts me. o.O
