The FF on the board just means that the motherboard completed an attempt to boot. That's it. Very vague i know...but in every instance of the ff code the board had to be replaced. Error code 2D may indicate a video problem...ultimately we could never know what to expect with generic codes like that...As an engineer I I would go a step further and try disconnecting the hard drive to see if you get the computer to get to the BIOS which would indicate a failed drive or corrupt OS Otherwise you are probably correct in thinking you might have a video problem which is onboard and would still require a board replacement. But save yourself the trouble and get another computer which doesn't have motherboards in it from shut down companies. I'd be glad to explore your options with you.

AM3 Processors are, as you state, backwards compatible with AM2 Sockets. However, this is based on a BIOS update and may not be the case in all motherboards. I would recommend checking with ACER directly, as to weather they have relased an update for this bios to support this function. I have done a search but turned up nothing, but they may not have released it yet. My initial thought was that this seems to be a problem with these OEM boards.
