AX8 Motherboard showing error code F after failed boot up

  zeppman 19:04 07 Dec 2013

I shut my PC down and restarted my modem and router to get wireless connection. When I tried to restart the PC I noticed the data light was off and when the start button is pressed there is no sound of fans or an attempted boot up. The only lights that are on are the motherboard LED message showing F and the Ethernet connection. The operating system is XP and the motherboard is an ABIT AX8 K8T890 the light on the mouse is also off.

I'm afraid Abit (motherboard) was out of business years ago.

AX8 Series User’s Manual

There are a few options you can try:

(1).This is a very matured PC so check the condition of PSU ( Power Supply Unit ).

(2).Check the motherboard CMOS ( CR2032 coin ) battery if it hasn't ever been changed.

(3).Check the Rams by taking them all out ,put one at a time & try to boot up.

(4).Use CMOS Memory Clearing Header to clear & revert back to default Bios settings (please refer to the User's Manual)

(5).Unplug the HDD & retry booting.
