I just received a bundle of an Epox P-55-BT 430TX main board, P200 MMX and 32MB memory from an old computer reseller here in the UK.
First problem was the memory didnâ€™t work it wouldnâ€™t boot until I swapped it for some of my own. Second problem the CMOS battery doesnâ€™t hold its charge when i remove power from the pc.
Those two where easily fixed. The third problem has stumped me. When I power it on I get an error message "Floppy Disk(s) failed (C0)"
I made sure the cables where around the correct way. I tired other FDD's and cables. I tired resetting the CMOS jumper on the board. I tried disabling all ports on the board in the BIOS. I tried booting up with just the minimum amount of stuff connected (CPU, memory, Graphics, Keyboard and FDD). Nothing works.
The only way I can get the message to not display is to set FDD to none in the BIOS. I want to be able to use the FDD so thatâ€™s no good.
parts i am using with it:
Matrox Millennium II PCI graphics card
Teac 3.5" 1.44MB FDD
Aopen 230W ATX PSU
Anyone have any ideas of things to try?
