I've sifted through numerous threads here and on other sites and I can't see anything else to try. The error code FF is showing on the LED. I've got nothing attached, not even the CPU now. Whatever combination of stuff I try I just get FF. CMOS has also been reset numerous times. So, is it dead? Or is there still hope? If it is dead what's a good mobo to replace it with at the moment? I'm not too up to date with the latest mobo's. As long as it runs an XP2400+ it's fine, I don't need anything too ultra special.
