Default Attention all SOLTEK SL-K890Pro-939 users!!

I have a huge question


What colors are the LED1 and LED2 lights on your motherboard (LED1=the one that displays letter, LED2=the one to the left of memory slots)

someone thinks my motherboard may be fried because they are red for me.

Dude, an LED can not change colour. If your LEDs are red, then they are supposed to be red!

The LED next to the RAM slots on your board, comes on whenever the ram modules are powered up, so nothing abnormal about that one.

The other LED is a diagnostic one for the POST test.

What makes you think theres anything wrong with your mobo?

A small handful of LED's can change color. I think it's probolly 2 LED's in one with one ontop of another or something.

Fair enough, I hadn't heard of that!

I have checked the mobo manual however & it says nothing about LEDs changing colour

I'll bet you can get LEDs to change color. It's just cheaper to make them 1 color.
