9NPA+Ultra won't POST, code "d0" HELP!!!

I've had this motherboard for about 4 months. I powered up the computer today, and the power/hdd lights didn't come on, nor did the monitor turn on. I reset the computer, and it came up to the post screen telling me to access the BIOS, but no keystrokes would register.

I rest the computer once more, and get absolutely nothing.

I've reset the CMOS multiple times as well as removing the battery for about an hour with no luck. I keep getting post code d0, which I can find absolutely no information about.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

I can't find anything on this post code, are you sure it's a d0 and not maybe something else?
Sounds like it's game over for your board....maybe flashing the bios or getting a new BIOS chip could help.
Is your pc overclocked?

The first thing I'd suggest you check would be all power connectors as these sometimes creep off the board over time if not mated firmly enough and also check that the CPU and memory are properly seated.

I think the post code is CPU and early bios initialisation so its a long shot but I'd also check all the PCI cards and data connectors.

The next stage would be to disconnect all peripheral devices and remove PCI cards to see if that changes anything

Finally I'd try running the board outside the case to eliminate shorts - one I've seen a few times is down to circuit tracks close to a mounting hole although most EPOX boards I've seen seem to be better designed than most in this respect.

After this its really down to a process of elimination - I'd suggest starting with the CPU - I hope this helps and good luck.

I ended up RMA-ing the motherboard after replacing all components with known working components outside of the case and getting the same post code.

Thanks for the ideas.
