Question about EPoX EP-8K3A+ Motherboard
I understand, that the error code is telling me there is a problem with the memory. I purchased a 1 Gb memory stick, guaranteed to work on the EPoX EP-8K3A+ motherboard, but I'm still getting the same error code. Now I must admit, prior to this purchase, I obtained incompatible memory and tried loading it. Nothing happened, getting the same error code, I tried reinstalling the old memory, and still nothing. I'm not sure, but installing incompatible memory may have damaged the board, I have no idea? Is this possible? I'm guessing it is possible. If the board is fried, I'm looking for an identical replacement, or something similar, any ideas? I guess this is two questions.
First with the original memory installed, Unplug the power cord, remove the button cell for the RTC/BIOS, press the power button(to Dissipate any stray volts) reinstall button cell and reset BIOS/CMOS. Hopefully with the bios back to default everything should come up ok. Next goto crucial.com and check for memory compatibility either with the config tool or enter MOBO info.

have you tried using either module on their own one module might be faulty or the socket might be dirty or faulty
If you are not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
