Dunno what happend with the nebulous, but the new mobo is toast :mad: First it's runnin great, then it just shuts off like before. Now all i get is the FF code, nuttin else.

Looks like another one bites the dust. Gonna have to rip nebulous apart, clean up the mobo, and send t back.


Geeez this is really beginning to get to me. I dunno what's happening.

try unplugging the PSU from the mobo, then remove the cmos battery (might just be a bad setting causing your problems?)

Also check the capacitors, I remeber reading about how whole shipment from various companies got bad capacitors and they were either leaking or blowing up on people.

As for basic trouble shooting, you try the basic cpu/video/ram trick?

Did any one see this?

ALL of the boards that are missing the FSB jumper suffer the same issue LT is having..


Strange isn't it?

Well, I tried evrything I know, ( No, not the the sledgehammer this time :p )

My poor new mobo is stuck @ the FF code :cry:

To cheer myself up, I just finished werkin on my friends pc. I spent most of the day modding it. It's a masterpiece if I do say so myself.

It's metallic purple with satin black accents. Complete with purple cables and purple cold cathodes.

Well, I'm gonna just lay down and watch a movie or something. Even after modding the pc, I'm still getting a headache and the nosebleed just started :( I dunno when I'll come back, I'm really angry and depressed after all this werk on nebulous.

Cya guyz later sometime.

(J/k... sorry to hear about that. I'm getting my new mobo soon and I am already dreading getting a DOA or something along those lines. :))

Good luck getting it fixed.

Thanx guyz , Guess I'll just rip the nebulous apart and get the mobo ready for RMA back to newegg. Dek, I'm not gonna wait around for a so-called fix. I'm just gonna swap out the mobo's agaon for the upteeenth time. Geez, i just noticed I'm spending more time taking apart nebulous and re-building than I'm actually enjoying my online time :rolleyes: Oh, btw.... the answer to sell my 304 is.............um............... NO!

Thanx JD., You'll prolly have more luck than me. Your mobo will be in perfect condition buddy! ;) ( and um.....icks-ney on the intel-ney :p )

I dunno anything about a 'white' core. Post the whole code. I wanna see if it's like mine. I'm in the middle of tearing the nebulous apart.

I heard the 302's are not bad. Give it a shot and see what she does. Don't throw in the towel before the race even starts ;)


Well, an update on the nebulous:

I just took her apart and packed up the mobo. Sending it out wed. for the RMA. Hopefully I'll get one back that's the winner.

See guyz, I'm taking all your suggestions and doing it right, even tho my right way is the sledgeway :D

Now if this doesn't go "by the book" can i play Peter gabriel's "sledgehammer" ?

At the risk of getting sledged myself...you try any other brands besides EPoX?

:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: I dont think Epox included the fsb jumper. Though i whish they did .

SLK

LT- I would get the FIC AU11...there are absolutely no issues reported that ive seen... Cause it probibly has the FSB jumper.


Also its not safe to confirm and save more then 2 different configurations in the bios on nforce 2s... Could stop the system from posting. (seen over at nforcers HQ)

I guess someone has to keep those companies' RMA service in check.

Good luck, LT.

04-14-03, 11:45 PM
Thanx muchachos. Imma try the 8RGA+ one more time, if not, I'll try the FIC. Runnin Silverbolt @ 13x166 full bore and no problems ;) Wed I'll ship the mobo back to newegg for the RMA. Once I get the new mobos from my bro in florida, I'll sell em and get the Abit too :D
