Question about Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS Motherboard

Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS doesn't recognize CPU

I just installed a new NF4U8AA with an AMD 64 3200+ CPU and everything seemed to be going smoothly until I tried to install Windows Vista 64. Vista went through the Loading Files progress bar and then rebooted. Windows XP64 did a similar routine. When I tried a Fedora Core 9 Live-CD, it began to boot and then displayed an error to the effect that it required a 64 bit CPU and it found an 1-586 processor. When I rebooted and read the post messages, I noticed that it didn't display CPU data. This CPU worked when I removed it from an older Gigabyte MB, so I am puzzled. Please help.

Main problem was a bad stick of DRAM. Replaced memory and Win XP64 Pro installed happily. Linux installer still thinks it's an i1586 processor and won't install. Strange.

Smithbrother is right...

the file you need is here:

You'll have to get yourself a BIOS flash utility. There are some simple, good boot disks for that here: http://www.bootdisk.com/

then you'll need to boot to that disk (not into Windows), and run the flash utility provided at the previous link. Once your BIOS has updated itself, you should be good to go.

This is a known issue with early BIOS revisions of your board.

NF4UK8AA-8EKRS motherboard no longer sees either of the SATA hard drives. Any thoughts?


Hello here is the homepage:

Try to enter the bios, and look for the harddrive settings.

The driver is needed for the pci card, do you have them ??

Your friend could have damaged the mainboard.

Good luck

Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS NO BOOT


Could be one of three things, either your motherboard is faulty (check the capacitors for bulging) and is not getting the power to the processor, the processor itself has faulted, or it's simply a flat cmos battery, as this can cause none starters.

Restarting


It sounds as if you have a flat CMOS battery, remove and replace. To delete the password and bios settings locate 'JBAT1' terminal on motherboard and put jumper from pins 1-2 across 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2. You will have to reset time and detect drives in standard CMOS settings.
