HELP!!!! 8RDA3I will not boot. error code not in manual.
Ok, I recieved my EPOX 8RDA3I yesterday, and installed it today. I have the optional LED thing that displays a 2 digit code if there is a problem. I think the code I get is 1d. but the manual says to see appendix E for these codes. My retarded manual does not have an appendix E.
here is my setup(shorthand ):
512 kingston pc3200 I also have a stick of k-byte 512 pc2700, but I will not be using it( if it clears the code then I will, but i don't think it is a ram prob, but i have been wrong before)
turtle beach santa cruz.
TT 420 watt
all of these components work since they were in my last setup( which was working fine earlier today)
I had the mem in dimm bank 1, then I switched it to dimm bank 2, same code. I have reset the cmos, same code.
I did connect the 4 pin ATX connector to the board. my hsf is in the right spot( at least I am pretty sure it is)
and epox website does not help me since the only manual i can download is for the onboard sound(which I won't even use)
