Prime95 killed computer?

Well after finally finding my stable OC'd settings I began my final prime95 test after finishing ram timings. Before this I had run Prime95 for 8+ hours with perfect stability. I had left my computer on for roughly 25 hours running prime and when I came home to check on the computer it was turned off. When I turned it on the bios LED is now displaying 03 or (03h) boot code which means "Initial Superio_Early_Init switch," whatever the hell that means. I've cleared CMOS with no change. I disconnected backup harddrive and the LED displayed I think C3 but now it simply displays 03 so I think the other code was simply a fluke. If anyone knows how to fix this please drop me a line, though I've already made preperations to return the board because I believe that it was defective and prime simply brought out that defect.

Have you eliminated the components? Something that happened after that many hours doesnt sound like a motherboard problem as much as a memory or CPU problem. I guess you wanted to be sure, but priming a machine for 25 hours sounds a bit over the top to me.

Priming for 25 hours would put your components under serious stress, even if one component couldn't handle it then ofcourse the sytem would fail. Eliminate some components and try and boot again, or see if you can take the motherboard out and test it in someone else's pc just to be sure. If the motherboard performs fine in another pc then test the other components in that pc with your motherboard, eventually you will have eliminated every component until you have one item left. Good Luck
