    A couple of days ago I started my computer as normal and all was fine
    when suddenly after a couple of minutes it shut down on me and no
    longer starts up. I have an Epox EP-8KHA+ motherboard and the LED
    shows permantly shows FF and does not change at all. I have cleared
    the CMOS and re-seated all the components and this has not helped. I
    have been using the computer without any problems for several years now

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help

    You may have leaking capacitators. It's a common problem with this

    Yes, look for swollen and/or leaking capacitors. My 8KHA+ died after
    several years of reliable service. Epox says tough sh*t.

    Not Epox in The Netherlands. They charged me 10 euros to repair it.

    Thanks for your help, I think the problem is leaking capacitors, but I
    don't know if the following is a contributing factor. For a couple of
    months before the computer stopped working, everytime I swtiched it on
    I would have to reset the computer to the correct time and date. Is
    this connected or a seperate issue?

    Thanks for your help
