  2. Are there any other symptoms? If not, I'd just ignore it - likely just a 'BIOS belch'! The whole 'energy saver' thing has always been pretty 'iffy' [:fixitbil:2] , for three revisions now...
  3. Manually enable the C1E, EIST, C3/C6/C7 in BIOS, don't let them left in "AUTO".
    Update your DES2 version if possible.

    if i enable all you say then i have the same problem AND the power led keeps blinking !!!

    if i only keep on C1E and EIST then i have the error code 06 only(if i run energy saver2) !!!

    other than that motherboard works fine

    is this RMA do you believe ?

    gigabyte told me this is a RESERVED CODE , what does it mean ?

    The thing is, that after the POST, the code doesn't mean anything! It's just some kind of wierd BIOS 'glitch' - and, if it's your only symptom - just ignore it... The codes are only valid during the POST (that's why they're called 'POST codes'!), and large numbers of them are either 'reserved' or 'undefined'; means that, either there is no such step in the initialization, or the step is optional to particular BIOS/hardware...

    Here are the first few:
    00 ... in BIOS menu
    01 Force chipset defaults
    02 Reserved/Unused
    03 Initial Superior_Early_Init switch
    04 Reserved/Unused
    05 Blank out screen, Clear CMOS error flag
    06 Reserved/Unused
    07 Clear 8042 interface, Initialize 8042 self-test
    08 Test special keboard controller for Winbond 977 series superIO chips, enable keyboard interface
    09 Reserved/Unused
    0A Detect PS/2 mouse/keyboard
    0b Detect Onboard Audio
    0C Reserved/Unused
    0d Reserved/Unused
    0E CMOS Integrity Check
    0F Reserved/Unused

    ...so you can see, seven of the first sixteen are listed as 'Reserved/Unused' - not at all uncommon.
  6. Thank you for your answer , during post it changes codes and then gives me FF ( where ff= OKAY )

    so based on what you are telling me i am glad i have no problem ! ( resellers are DONKEYS where i live ) :o

    THANK YOU ! :pt1cable:

    Resellers, with the possible exception of NewEgg, seem to be DONKEYS pretty much everywhere [:bilbat:9]
