CF Error - NO POST (8RDA+)

Suddenly getting this error.
I had the system reverted back to its defaults - no overclock - whilst waiting on Sinks for the mofsets/northbridge/southbridge.

Playing games on it last night with no problems.
Thismorning when I turned on the PC, I get 'CF' error - no POST at all - not even initialising the graphics card

The manual states that this is testing the cmos read/write functionality.

BIOS chip screwed??

SORTED

Unplugged the power cable, pressed power button, reseated cable and started OK


Wierd tho

Have shut down several times since, and no repeat of the problem

same thing happened to me after 2 days of ownership. The board was running my 2100 at 2700+ at only 32C, same as ambient, too. I tried to flash the bios via the utility that was on the Epox website, and the flash worked....for one reboot worth. After having to clear my cmos b/c of problems posting correctly, the board decided to give the CF. And it seems you're the only other person to ever get that error. So, what gives? Is it a bios/cmos error requiring a replacement chip, or is my board just FUBAR?
PS: I've already tried all the tricks, i.e. insert key, unplugging power, unplugging power for extended time, bootable floppy. NADA, everything's a no-go. After power is hit, it immediately switches from FF to CF. If I use reset btn to cycle power, it stays at FF on depress, CF immediately upon release.
Thanks pro-actively!
