8rda+ boot problems

my 8rda wont boot up, when I try to it gets a error code 02 and then it starts beeping at me(sounds kinda like a siren). I have tried reseating everything,ive tried removing PCI cards, cables, memory and still nothing.

I cant seem to find anything on error codes or the beeping, all i saw on error codes was that 02 was reserved but wtf does that mean?

8rda+ rev1.1
2x256 Corsair XMS PC3200LL
WD Raptor
Promise SATA150 Controller
GF4 TI4200

About .000001 seconds after you turn your computer on, HOLD Insert and tap Delete about 35672 Times until it eather goes into bios, OR starts beeping again, if it starts beeping again, turn your comp off and do it over, you can also "clear" your bios with a jumper to the right of the bios chip.

Nah look at his memory none of the stuff you told him will work because i tried all of it. It is an issue with this memory in all nforce2 boards. Nvidia had created a fixx but as far as i know only 2 companies have put it into there bios yet and Epox is not 1. The only way to reboot is to user another stick of memory i used my crucial PC2100 go in and change the timings to optimal 6-2-2-2. It will run but i don't recommend overclocking with it till they fix it.

PS does anyone have any info on them fixing it?

Had the same "siren" problem. It was my Mushkin black pc3200. Much to my shock and disappointment, Mushkin memory is not "certified" with the 8rda+. However, after making a quick trip to Best Buy for a stick of Crucial pc2100, I was able to boot. I am not sure what memory setting it was, but I changed everything to expert and changed the one that had the SDP option to 100% or something. After putting the Mushkin back in, everything has worked fine since, including overclocking!

Good luck!
