Question about EPoX EP-9NPA3 Ultra (EP9NAPA3ULTRA) Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot up problem

I have an Epox 9NPA3 mb. It's a year old. First it was booting up only to bios. Next it was rolling to a safe mode start up screen. I enter in safe mode ( as well as all other options available) the Windows logo flashes and then it reboots all over. It flashes several error codes including 75, 94, 26, and 7F. Bios doesn't find any drives. Tried auto-detect drive. Only finds CD drive, but only temporarily. Next time in bios no drives are found. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: boot up problem

Sounds as if you need to change your cmos battery (Cr2032 on motherboard) first of all as i'ts a very cheap item to replace, then set the bios up again, then try to boot, if still no boot you may need an operating system repair.

Asus motherboard problems Installed a new F2A55-MLK series to replace old ASUS board. Running XP and when I install the HDD it boots until the starting windows screen and get blue screen Asus tech no help.

go into the BIOS setup and find settings for SATA operation or something similar. the available options should be
1. Native SATA/IDE
2. AHCI supported
windows xp was installed with SATA support but requires special drivers for AHCI or RAID, so you should set your computer's SATA operation to native or IDE in order to solve the problem.
Additional tip:
next time you manage to boot to windows, boot to safe mode (boot while pressing F8), so you can review if all the drivers are well installed in device manager.

I turn on my hp pavilion zd7020us the hp page boots up then goes to safe mode or normal mode page then goes to a very quick blue screen and turns off and starts the whole process over again any ideas

So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I've been building computers since 1992. Never saw this. My EVGA MB is in a BIOS loop. Boot .. beep .. EVGA Splash ... -Reboot automatically- Beep ... EVGA Spash ... -Reboot automatically. It's like a...

Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.

Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".

I had the same problem, the bios is corrupted, try a blind bios update or if it doesn't want to, you must do a hot flash update.For more details google search for award bios hot flash.Or dump it and buy a new one.A hot flash worked for me for this mb and an Epox 8rda+,i also have backup bios chips now.Your chip is a Winbond,4 mb capacity.
Hope this helps, SSVik

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

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...
