Question about EPoX EP-9NPA7I (0819366003415) Motherboard

2 Answers

EPoX EP-9NPA7I displays 'F' and '5' post codes

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...

Amd athlon xp 2400+ problems witha epox ep-8kra2+ motherboard?


It sounds to me like the processor that you bought is not fully supported in the current bios in your mobo. I would check the epox website for newer bios. Be careful flashing the bios, if you misstep in the flash, you may end up with a brick. If you are successful, you should be able to run the processor at the speeds you expected, though within the limits of the hardware on the mobo. Also look at the spec's for the mobo on the site to see if your processor is listed as being supported.

Hi,
I can't verify these work but it appears to have the files you need:
http://bunker.linkbg.com/asaf/XP%20Drivers/Motherboards/EPoX%20EP-9NPA7I/chipset_nvidia-nf4__6%5b1%5d.53_XP/NFref_653/Ethernet/

Try to right-click and download each file to a directory on your pc and then install it.

Good luck!
