Question about EPoX EP-9NPA7I (0819366003415) Motherboard
I've had this motherboard with an AMD Athlon 64 for over 2 years now and there were no problems up until now. One evening while the computer was up and running everything just froze, screen, keyboard and mouse. I tried restarting but to no avail when Windows XP was starting it froze again and the mainboard gave me an 'F' post code. Figuring it was a heat issue I cleaned dust from inside on the case, on the processor fan, built in mainboard fan, cleaned the RAMs, removed them and put them back in switched - the mainboard detects all this, unplugged and re-plugged my hard drive and I'm still getting this 'F' post code after the BIOS initializes and Windows tries to load. I tried entering into safe mode but still I'm getting this 'F' post code. Sometimes it's '5' but mostly it's the 'F' post code. I tried searching on line for related problems but was not successful.
I would start by clearing the CMOS with the reset jumper pin on your mainboard. Then remove all the PCI cards excluding the video card; disconnect the hard drive as well. Boot the computer without the RAM and see if you still get the "F post code." If not download a copy of Ubuntu Linux and burn it to a CD.
Ubuntu 8.10 Live CD
Reinstall the RAM modules and boot to Ubuntu from the CD and run "System Memory Scan" from the Ubuntu Boot Menu. I'm guessing your RAM over-heated and is permantly damaged.
Only the manufacturer knows what the error codes for your board represent; it'd email them from this support link...
