F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** BUGGER!
Set up the returned board yesterday - guess what - didn't POST.
Phone tech support - try using a screwdriver to boot it (rather than the front panel switch) .... strangely it booted.
Rebuilt system - all work fine
Ran MEMTEST 86+ all night - no memory errors this morning
Put in Windows installation disc (blank HD in there) and rebooted and guess what - won't POST AGAIN. Now doesn't matter what I do (with or without screwdrivers).
Called tech support - please send it back ...
So far this board has cost me £18 to send it back + £25 they have charged me for testing and return and now it will cost another £18 to return it again - a total of £61 !
I can buy a new board for under £100 should I cut and run on this one before I throw good money after bad ?
