FF Error! No POST!

Here's the deal:
Booted up computer today and wanted to see if I could get a higher fsb. I knew it was a memory problem that kept me from passing the 168mhz mark. So I set the memory frequence to 80%. Now.. I raised the fsb to 169, post.. 170 post.. 171 post.. Then I hit 189 No post.

Restarted system, and did the insert del combination. And still no post. Checked the mb and it showed an FF error. Tried to clear the Cmos and still no post. removed the jclk jumper and still no post!. I also tried swapping the ram, still nothign!

I'm not sure exactally what's going on here! clearing the cmos always worked for me! now it's giveing me an FF error.

It sounds like you may have suffered from BIOS corruption.

If you have a different CPU (Such as a Duron), then you can try this - some claim it helped fix their problems.

Alternatively, you can try hot flashing the BIOS in another board. If you have no other way, then your local EPoX representative can send you a pre-programmed FLASH BIOS chip.

For more info take a look at 8RDA+ and BIOS corruption - a theory.

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
