couple of weeks ago I put together a new computer for myself
basic specs are
CPU: AMD64 X2 4200
Mobo: Asus Deluxe AV8 (with onboard raid controller)
Ram: 2 x 1GB Corsair XMS4000PT TwinX
VGA: XFX 6600 GT 256MB
HDD: Western Digital 36 GB Sata Raptor
300GB Maxtor SATA + 250GB Samsung IDE
After having it running for a week, it will no longer post
so far by using a machine that I put together from older parts I've eliminated
the following from the problem.
HDD, PSU, Graphics & memory.
So I'm left with the problem of determining if its the CPU or motherboard.
Since there are no scorch marks anyone have any suggestions for an easy way to
determine which is buggered? or am I going to have to rely of getting a hold of
a friend with a 939 socket motherboard to test?
Also, the post voice messages don't appear to be working, but then again I think
by default they are disabled in the BIOS (how pants is that).
God how I wished I stuck with a motherboard that had the POST digit led's which
would just output the code on what test it was working.
