In an effort to incease my mobo knowledge, I purchased a PCi8 tester from HDE. It was the "Professional" version. Much to my dismay, when I read the 'instruction sheet' it did not proide any instructions on how and where to install either of the two PCB's. The provided link was totally useless. Now I don't think I am that much behind the times but I could not figure out what connector this interface was supposed to mate with on the DH61CR board.
I have requested an RMA to return this product.
Does anyone have a sugestion for a Mobo/ BIOS tester that has a manual that will show a newbie where to install it and what to look for? Some of the under $10 devices on ebay have two digit displays but I am concerned that the decode information will be very lacking.
Thanks for your advice. Since the problem I was working on appeared to be a POST problem, I thought these testers would give me some insight. Like many of these extra devices, they have limited documentation so you don't know what new information you will get from the device.
I do have RAM and a Power Supply so if I can get this mobo to give out some beeps and display anything I'll do some exchanges.
