Mobo question [ 80 Port Debug Led ]


Graphic Designer
So , I own an Epox 8RDA+
On it's small display ( placed on downright of device ) shows a message which I cannot entirely understand so here it is :
FF ( on display ) and FFh ( manual - glosary ) = Boot attempt ( INT 19h ) - so what this means ?
Attached a pic ( modified by me ) for more detail ..
Thanks :)
Well, it's a debug display. If the computer halts before booting you can see where it stopped and look up the error number in the manual. Very useful. :)

We did not deserve this !
Yes, I agree with SkazzyUK, what a good job you've done for us to see !
Really nice illustration for your question, and nice feature btw ! ;)


hardware monkey
haha, nice

"80 port".. what could this mean? the only thing that comes to mind is the ide cable issue. your harddrive might be using a 40-conductor cable which the motherboard won't allow. you need an 80-conductor.

check out an old post of mine which might help you find out if that's your problem.
No, "80 port" more likely referrs to the computer using IO port 80 to generate the data or something like that. Useless info to the common user. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
