epox 8KRA2+

Can anyone help? I purchased the above mobo in Nov. 2003, it has worked fine until a few days ago. I removed fan assembly to check on identification code of cpu. I replaced heat sink paste, refitted fan and the switched on, unfortunately the computer would not boot. All fans were working, I checked monitor connections, replaced the video card, still not working. The red led diagnostic was showing FF. I have read the manual and it would appear that it is a motherboard fault?
My setup is as follows:- AMD 2400XP, 768 meg of DDR 2700 ram, WinXP
Pro., MSI 5600 Ultra -VTD128.
Thanks
Jon

Try removing and reseating the cpu heatsink fan assembly again, make sure it is not on 180 degrees out of sync, make sure it is properly seated, and plugged into the proper fan header.

Hi there,

It does unfortunatley sound possible that either CPU core or mainboard have been damaged whilst you have been performing this operation.

I have purchased a new AMD2600XP, have tried this, the computer is still not booting, must be the motherboard! How can I damage the motherboard when installing cpu and fan assembly?
