Abit mobo errors

  1. So...my PoS computer has yet another problem, haha. Today, it shut down in the middle of a game. The screen froze, but the mouse could move. Then, when I tried to restart it, I got no signal to my monitor. I checked the motherboard codes, and something strange was happening.

    It would temporarily stall on C1 (memory problem), but would blink to C0 very quickly, then back to C1. It would do this varying amounts of times (normally 7 or 8, but as few as 3) at about half-second intervals. Afterwards, it would make it through the other checks, eventually reaching full boot up (FF), but still with no signal on the screen. I'm not sure if this C1-C0 blinking is normal. I can't recall having seen it before. But, until I know if it's normal, I can't know if it's a memory problem or something else.

    Any ideas?

    How old is the board. If new, I would send it back to the seller who can send it back to Abit.
