I have had this board 2-3 months. Firstly, (as I always do nowadays) took Seans advice and tested with just memory, CPU and graphics before installing in case. Everything OK, installed win XP on Sata H/D and ran for a few days like this. Came to install in case and when fired up, made a two tone noise from speaker with a 9.0. error code. Tried removing everything one at a time, eventually taking the board out of the case for testing with just CPU graphics & memory again, but with exactly the same error code. Also tried clearing CMOS a few times in between to no avail.
Have now replaced CPU, removed memory, tried different graphics & PSU and still get the same error code, 9.0. I am now totally stumped.
Anyone any ideas?
Thanks in advance
