-Cleared CMOS, No improvement still coding 25
- Tried a minimal boot using just the following components: Motherboard, CPU, Power Supply, Single stick of ram, Videocard and Keyboard. Boot Successful.
-Tried to boot using all components except Hard drives Boot Successful.
-Tried to boot using all components except main hard drive. Boot Successful.
-Tried to boot using all components. Boot failed, coding 25.
Probable cause: Possible lose IDE cable. Solution: Checking main board and hard drive.
Probable cause: Bad IDE cable. Solution: Swapping IDE cables between the hard drive and the DVD drive.
Probable cause: Bad hard drive. Solution: None available.
Do you have any other thoughts? Any advice welcome. Thanks for your time.
Hey everyone, I have a bit of trouble here. I just finished moving my hardware into a new case I am having a problem getting past POST. Here are the specs:
Motherboard: ABIT Fatality AN8 SLI
Videocard: NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX
Harddrive: Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 40GB ATA/133
2nd Harddrive: Seagate Momentus 5400.2 120GB SATA
Soundcard: SIIG SoundWave 5.1 PCI
RAM: OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum 1GB (two sticks)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+
I also had two 120mm LED Silent case fans that were replaced by two new 120mm LED Silent case fans that came with the new case. I also removed a CD Drive (but kept a DVD Drive) because there is not a necessity for it. All of these parts with preexistent in a fully functional and working computer prior to moving them to a new case.
The motherboard is equipped with a visual LED/POST code device that reads ?25? whenever I boot up my system. The manual describes POST code 25 as:
Early PCI Initialization
-Enumerate PCI Bus Number
-Assign memory & I/O resource
-Search for a valid VGA device & VGA BIOS, and put it into C000:0
Sometimes it will code ?9.0.? before 25. The manual describe POST code 9.0. as:
Complete uGuru initial process
AWARD BIOS take over booting job
I?m not using uGuru so this baffles me. I?m not a hardware guy and I?m at the extent of my knowledge. Obviously it?s a hardware issue however I?m fairly confident none of my hardware is damaged there for I must have connected something wrong, or made some type of mistake trying to boot it up after dismantling and rebuilding in a new case. Any advice is welcome. Thank you for your time.
