Nvidia 790i Ultra FF error

  1. Hi Guys,

    Have recently been given a PC for repair but have come across the error Code on the post Boot LCD's. This code is "FF"

    I have downlaoded the manual and tried to look up the code but it only says "Boot"

    Can anyone help me with exactly what the error is.
    Does it mean that the mohterboard is dead?

    Thanks in advance

    James

    "FF" on Nvidia boards stands for Fully Functional
    If the board goes through the usual POST then shows "FF" then it's an add in component problem. If the board shows "FF" at the start then the board is toast- which could be a loose component (try gently pushing down on the BIOS chip- they sometimes work themselves loose).
    Any beep codes, any diagnostic LED's showing (specially if they are orange/red) ? -Assuming the board isn't going through the usual POST procedure -and also assuming the board is a reference model (XFX or EVGA for instance).
