I have a self built ASRock P45TS-R mobo. with an Intel E8400 cpu. I had ereased the hard drive to install windows 7. I then restarted the computer. I did not boot up. Neither the mouse or keyboard have light and the keyboard will not respond. It is as if it were not plugged in. The boot process only goes as far as Dual-Channel Memory Mode. Then a error message reads MAC address are invalid in both COMS and Flash! Press F1 to Resume. I can not key anything in as I had said the keyboard will not respond. No lights come on in the front pannel. the fans turn on, including the cpu fan, but nothing else.
I did read the post someone else sent with links to get a fix because the one on ASRock's site does not work. I tried them but they do not work. Everything worked fine before and just incase I have tested every part from this computer in another. They all worked fine.
I have been putting computers together from 1989. Most of my experence has been in the hardware side, but as these virus s keep getting worse and more often I have been trouble shutting more and more. I have tried boot disks, and dos repair software but the drives don't work either. The mother board of course is out of warrenty.
Please!!!!!!!!!!!!! someone either tell me how to fix it or post the links to ones that are active. This is too good of a computer to loose.
