Long delays, I think they do it on purpose to discourage warranty claims. I’d already tried all this and much more well before the reply but the board stays dead. Spent hours replacing and removing bits. But I did try other RAM and power supplies. Then just failed to start. Hope it actually works. Doesn’t quite look like a new one though, just an impression.

Now just have to wait for the replacement to come from Taiwan. Already have an account? In this case the PC had been working well with no problems for about 11 months. I won’t get around to installing for a few days. The warrany claim isn’t settled on that one yet, next weekend was the last I heard on it.

It was supposed to be here last Sunday, but the vendor then informed me that the warranty was being handled from Taiwan and not locally, so I’d have to wait for a replacement board to come in.

Odd too that the recorder and the motherboard both went out with only 3 weeks left on their warranties. Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds. Got the package by post from the vendor.

Around here it’s been going off early, might have been confused by daylight saving or somesuch.

Eventually I gigabye out of things I could try due to lack of spare hardware lying around, and took it in.

This replacement only cost me postage one way as the vendor sells at some local markets twice a month, other than I’d be a km trip to his store. Add your comment to this article You need to be a member to leave a comment.

I had the same problem on the same motherboard. The RAM from this board worked ok ggiabyte another machine so it wasn’t that.
