Started computer and system hangs on code A79 which manual says is entering bios. It goes to enter bios screen but then black. Cannot get into bios.
Have tried switching to second bios and same thing. Any ideas on problem.

Do not know how to flash bios without being able to get into bios. Have done nothing but switch bios to second bios.
Turned off and unplugged. Thats all I tried.

Ok, so it doesn't have a one of those 'can flash without CPU' type things... ok.

Yeah, if you pulled the battery on the board, the jumpers, and plug for a while, then I would guess its RMA time.

Lemme dig around a bit I have one of those boards and it's a fussy little ***** at times. Did you try with one stick of ram? I also run it on single bios exclusively. Make sure the OC socket is dis abled as well
