I have just about had it with this PC. Just about to play some World of Tanks, start Winamp playing a song, sit back, and the computer shuts off. Oh dear, say I. In slightly more foul language. The power LED stays on, however, but it won't shut off when I hold it, and neither did the reset button. Curious. I shut the power off at the plug and go eat some food. I return and try to power it up. The computer begins to start just fine and gets stuck halfway through the BIOS. Being a DFI board, there is an LED post code display! It displays something odd. The last digit is an 8, but the first didn't seems corrupted. Let me use the code tags. Code: |_ |_ Followed by an 8. Anyway, I power off at the plug again, as the power button fails to work yet again. Powering up this time only yields an 88 display. There is very little explanation of these on the internet, but most of it basically says that my motherboard or my BIOS is ****ed. I am going to try the usual deal of clearing the CMOS and reconnecting everything. However, on the off chance that the motherboard IS broken, what is likely to be the problem here? Northbridge, southbridge, CPU power phases? My friend is loaning me a 775 based mobo, CPU and some RAM, so hopefully I'll have a functioning system soon. But is it work salvaging this thing if I can't get it to work?
