Question about Asrock K7S41GX Motherboard
When MB is powered on the CPU fan spins and nothing else happens.
I have placed a PCI PC Analyser card which displays the POST CODE and only displays EF.
I have removed everthing from the MB apart from the CPU and reset the BIOS but results are still the same. I have also used a different PSU.
The CPU is a AMD Athlon XP 2500 (Barton).
This is my second MB as the 1st one also gave me the same results.
Please can you help?
Replacing the CPU has resolved the MB not posting.
So, from my findings the other CPU must have been faulty which was bought 2nd hand from ebaY!
Is there a way to test it?
Thanks for all advice,

Your post code EF comes from
Configuration memory error - can't find memory
Derives from AMI BIOS and uses port 80h
The memory failure is normally due to the first bank of ram or a data line
Check to see if your ram is seated properly, that is make sure the ram stick is in all the way down. Your problem is your system can't find RAM
