Question about Abit AB9 Pro Motherboard

1 Answer

C1 code, computer won't boot

I recent purchased an Abit AB9 Pro board, and I am using 3 Gigs of ddr2 pc2-6400 with a total of 4 sticks. This week, the computer locked up solid and when I attempted to reboot, I got the C1 memory error. I then proceeded to increase the voltage for the DDr2 to 2.5V and the computer booted just fine. thinking that this was too much, I dropped the voltage to 2.2V and now It gives the C1 code no matter what I do. I've tried removing all sticks and using 1 stick for each port and nothing. I tried this same technique with each of the different Crucial Ballistix ram and nothing. I've tried clearing CMOS with the onboard jumper, and nothing. However, I never did take the battery out, is this necessary? What else should I try and why is this happening? I've rounded up a ddr2 pc2-5300 555hz but not sure if its compatible. All I need to do is get back into the BIOS, change the settings to where they were, but to do this I need to get past the C1 error. PLEASE HELP, I need this machine back up 2 days ago!!!
Thanks

I have an Acer Aspire 7540-1284 laptop that came with 3GB memory. The specs say expandable to 4GB but the manual says expandable to 8GB using soDimm modules. I can't find info anywhere to support...


it prolly has 2 ram slots, capable of holding a 4gig ram stick apiece- for a total of 8 gigs.

however, the largest ram stick they currently make is 2 gigs. your board can support 2x4gigs of ram (8 altogether), buit the most ram you can currently purchase is 2x2gigs (for 4 gigs altogether).

additionally, you have to have a 64 buit version of windows to regognize all 8 gigs if you had them.
a 32 bit version of windows will recognize no more than 4 gigs of ram.

Manual and Bios for Abit AB9 Pro Motherboard


Hello seany187,

What I'm doing since your system doesn't want to download from Abit, is creating a zip file with all the drives, manuals, utilities and bios updates for both XP, XP64, Vista, and Vista 64, since I don't what OS your on, and you will be able to download them from this private site HERE. And because the files are so large, I split them into, I'll post the second one as in a comment as soon as it's completely up on the site.. You shouldn't have any problems with these downloads, unless you have your IE settings to high.


Good Luck & don't forget to leave a rating based on my Solution.

Thanks Mark

Stay tuned for the second file!

Abit AW8 LGA775 Maximum memory


Hi there
Sounds like the bios will need updating as the board will support 8BG ram.
Put your old memory back in the machine, boot into windows, go to the motherboards manufacturers website and download the latest bios update and install it and reboot.
make sure you read the info on how to install the bios update.
I must also warn you that if you are using a 32bit operating system it will only recognize 2.9BG of memory, there is nothing you can do about this apart from install a 64bit operating system if the board supports 64bit processors.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Sounds like it's going to die or its gone faulty,
Might need to replace it or take it to a computer store and have them check it out.

Ram DDR2


Hi Terry, you're board, PC Chips P23G only supports a max memory of 2GB. Please check pg. 9 of your manual, Installing Memory Modules.
Please be noted you can NOT use DIMM DDRII 1~2 (DDR2 533/400) and DIMM DDR1~2 (DDR 400/333) simultaneously. Only use either DDR2(533/400) or DDR(400/333) memory modules! (You should check the spec's of the other board before inserting memory that may not be supported). (You can damage the memory)
Click the link listed below for you're PC Chips P23G board.
Suggest you save this link to you're favorites.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?MenuID=92&LanID=2&DetailID=387&DetailName=BIOS

You will notice there is a fix for:
Patch code to fix REALTEK clock buffer sometimes couldn't detect DDR2.
Once there, click BIOS. Scrol down to the bottom of the page & read special notes. Than click the drop down menu & pick a download site. Creat a folder on you're desktop to store the download. Uncompress the .zip file. You will than have a folder named 070115 & a ROM file named 070115.ROM
This bios flash program requires you to use a floppy disk drive to flash the bios.
Follow the instruction at this link to flash you're bios.

If you find to hard to folow you can pick another from this google search site.
