Question about Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H (0683562100229) Motherboard
I alredy tried another brand of memory, didn't POST either. I am thinking about getting a new video card and if not that, then maybe both my mobo and the one that I bought are DOA. In that case, i will get a different mobo again. any thoughts? M

Mbern I don't think -- is an error code, i bet that means all is good...in that case it seems a lot more likely to be a video card problem since the motherboard is chiming in as good to go...hopefully you figure it out. good luck! B

I'm going to assume you supplied the proper 8pin 12v connector besides the necessary 24pin, right? Unplug all cables to any internal peripherals, even data cables. Since you're getting random LED errors, I would remove the video card, open up one of those ancient computers to remove a PCI video card, install it on this board and boot to CMOS. I'd also prepare a Memtest86+ boot diskette and check each memory stick individually (that is if you have a PCI video card output). Keep monitoring/logging those LED errors (to note any type of pattern). The onboard MOLEX power connector, used to provide additional power to the PCI-Express slots when using x16 cards in SLI mode, is located between PCI slot 2 and the board's edge, as a last ditch effort, try powering it up when the Single SLI card is installed. Otherwise, you have either a mal-performing power supply (regardless the total wattage), a funky video card or a DOA motherboard. Always need to carry a known good PCI video card, I use a Matrox Millenium. OH... and take a good slug of your favorite liquor. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
