    with the EP-8KHA+ - you should get several different debug codes during boot - ending up with FF when the system is running

    If you get FF immediately on power up - you've got problems.

    I had to research this ~ 6mos. ago because it happened to me.....mine turned out to be a bad bios chip & was replacd by my dealer.

    Appearantly not having your CPU or RAM seated correctly will cause the same symptoms, so check that first ( if you haven't already)

    One problem withe EP-8KHA series is that the bios chips tend to be a little flaky - more so with the original model than with the "+"

    Yeah, it would be a good idea to make sure your RAM is seated correctly. I've read a few articles where that was a problem with the first bootup of an 8KHA+.

    Either that or you're pretty much screwed. Still got that receipt?
