SOURCE: my abit ix38 get 8.7.

i have been having the same sort of problem with my IX38 quad GT and after hours of trying various things i have decided i need to see if the problem is my processor. let me explain...

i have an abit IX38 that i have been running with an E6550 dual core processor. had it for years now with no problems. i recently got a Q9450 quad core from ebay to upgrade, and ran into problems. basically i can't get the **** thing to boot with the Q9450. when i try to boot with the 8pin ATX processor plug, it goes straight to post code 8.3. and shuts off. if i remove the 8pin ATX it will boot to code 8.7. and run for about 15s and then reboot back to 8.7. post code 8.7. is a check CPU voltage issue. code 8.3. says something about saving back to the CMOS stack and the manual says its a psu issue.

i have tried pretty much everything, from changing the psu, to gpu to RAM and more with the same results. so at this point i wanted to get anyone who might have something to say about the situation to comment on if it might be the processor is bad, and i got burned on something from ebay. i do have one last step, and that would be to rule out the mobo (by having my bro install it in his computer which has a Q9450)

any responses would be greatly appreciated.

I have trouble with my SG-72 board. I clean the CMOS. Now I can't see the screen and there are a long beep and two short beep.

see to it that your VGA card if you have or SOUND card or LAN card is seated properly. Then check also your memory card are seated properly...

good luck

8.3. 9.0. 4.0. post codes when attempting to boot up.

code 8.3: 12V 4 pin plug disconnected or power supply damage. Check connection /test PSU
code 9.0: OC too high (possible bios damage) clear CMOS as 1st resort

Not sure about 4.0 but 0.4 indicates memory module failure.

Have you overclocked the board? The codes would indicate you went a bit over the top if you did. I'd clear the cmos and check the PSU and reseat the ram and start from the vanilla settings, hopefully the bios chip is not blown

Abit av8 bios post codes 8.3 - 8.6 - 9.c What is failing on boot ? I get one long beep followed by 4 short beeps. I have swapped video cards and reflashed the bios with no help. If I reboot 2 or 3...

I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.

Hope this gave you an idea of your problem..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

Hello. I'm portuguese and i have an abit fatality an8 soket 939 and i have a problem with the motherbord. She stop in the error "9.0" " AWARD BIOS TAKE OVER BOOTING JOB". What i have to do? What are my...

This seems to be a common problem with this board. That error could mean any number of things from a loose cable to a fried chip. Flashing bios will not get rid of the problem.

Take a look at this article.

Good luck,

Can this motherboard be saved?

One long beep.

  1. Leave the memory slot closest to the processor empty and try booting again. Award bios 1 long beep is memory error as the first 64K of the ram stick closest to th processor is accessed first. since you have tried different ram in different locations, let's rule out the board.
  2. If that doesn't solve anything try a different power supply. Sometimes (Phoenix) gives a long beep when system board or power supply are bad.
  3. Now if nothing else has worked it is probably tour mother board.
