Hello. For the last 5 years I haven't had any major problems with my EP-8RDA3I motherboard, but for the last couple of days my computer stopped booting up.I looked inside the case and it stops responding when it reaches 50h acording to the Debug LED which stands for: USB Initialization. Any clue as to how I might fix it? Thanks for your replys.
POST 50 for Award BIOS + nForce2 chipset - usually is South Bridge problem (chip in area AGP/first PCI with name nVIDIA MCP) - integrated to him USB-controller.

Hi, two possible things to try. First reinstall your O/S [I am assuming you are running XP] To save your current settings do not select the first prompt by WIN setup to repair the current instalation, press enter install. At the second prompt to repair press "R" to repair.The drivers for USB2 are in XPservice pack 2. Second , if you are unable to get to the setup stage then go online with a friends computer and log onto your mobo manufacturers home page and download the latest BIOS for your board, burn this to a CD, then set your computer to boot from CD and flash the bios to the new version. goodluck, regards mistyman
