AV8 error codes

Can anyone offer any help with my possibly dead AV8 board?

When I first turn the PSU on the POST code display shows a 3, closely
followed by a 0.2.

When I short the PWR terminals, the CPU fan spins up, and the POST code
display shows 8.3, then 9.C, followed by a momentary 9.E and finally a 9.F,
and the CPU fan powers down.

I've tried it on the bench, in a case, with and without drives attached,
memory in this slot, memory in another, you name I think I'll have tried it.
I'm running out of things to fiddle with!

Can anyone decode the codes? None of them are in the helpfully supplied
appendix of POST codes in the manual. (See, I must be desperate - I RTFM!)

Any suggestions appreciated, useful ones even more so.

try posting here maybe,
http://forum.abit-usa.com/forumdisplay.php?f=73
here's a list of codes i got a while back
Dunno about your prob.Power supply specs?Try another stick of ram?
Good luck

Would love to say yes I know, but Ive also seen error codes not listed in
the manual, somewhat troubling....

Thanks for the above, but I notice the codes I'm getting are conspiuously
absent. I've pretty much given up on the damn thing, (which is a shame as
it was a fine board when it worked), and have ordered an Asrock 939
Dual-SATA (and returned it for replacement as it refused to post), which has
a degree of future-proofing built-in.

Thanks again.
