Amd Athlon 64 3200+
Abit AV8 3rd eye mobo
Corsair ValueSelect 1gb (2x512mb) ram
Hiper 425w psu
ATI radeon 9600 agp
Seagate 200gb SATA hd
Problems arose when I tried to turn it on ( funny that ).
When I press the power button, the fans attempt to turn for about 1/8 of a second,
and then all stop.
The uguru clock on the mobo reads 83 the 9e, 9f.
the 9e and 9f are forced power down codes, i don't understand the 83 code
It also beeps one long and one short
I have tried removing all cards, re-seating graphics card, re-pasting cpu+heatsink,
shifting sticks of ram, all to no avail.
I did find that with the 4 pin power plug removed from the mobo, the fans actually start but only for about 3-4 seconds then it powers down.
The uguru clock then reads 87 then 9e, 9f
Again I don't know what code 87 means.
It also beeps one long and three short.
I was worried that it might be the ram, I tried a different graphics card but I don't have spare ram, but I removed both sticks of ram and the errors were'nt any different.
I believe it could be very basic, but as I am new to thism I have no idea, any help would be greatly appreciated...
