i can not find post codes anywhere for my motherboard, i have gotten a few.. can anyone help me find what they mean?
motherboard: chaintech skt-600
website: www.chaintechusa.com
post codes: 33, 49, 52, 65, 75, 7F, 96
i have checked the manual for the motherboard, but they are not in there.. i figured maybe theres a universal set of these?

based only on the fact that the codes i get are all present in only one version, i went with that set. the codes i am gettin are all just telling me what the bios is doing at that point, "Calculate total memory..." , "Detect and install all IDE devices...", so i guess since the computer is no longer having trouble getting past these steps, nothing is wrong? that would be nice.. thanks for the help and the page.

Are you getting any beeps?

http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

Theres award BIOS beep codes, which generally IMO are easier to troubleshoot than post codes.

But if your computer isn't messing up, the ole saying 'if it aint broke, dont fix it' comes to mind
