In searching the net on this issue, it seems that this had been a MOBO problem in earlier versions. My MOBO is revision 2.0.

    Any help would be appreciate.

    DO NOT USE FRY's RAM. They are horrible and never work. Anyways, I had a friend that hit the 8KHA+ with a screwdriver and had to RMA it, it had the C1 error code. I guess he hit the circuit connecting to the RAM, which is odd considering I hit my mobo twice with the screwdriver and it's still alive.

    Check the posts above yours...

    I thought I had seated it correctly also... about 5 times. I just kept re-seating and it eventually worked... I think on my 7th or 8th time... not a single problem since (Feb 8th).

    Yeah I was thinking it would really suck to send back a RAM chip and wait a whole week... so I gave it one last try... pushing it down as hard as I could in the DIMM slot. Son of a... it worked... slot 1... never again will I move the chip.

    if your using ECC modules, the 8kha+ doesn't support it. if your using non-ecc modules and if have another ddr laying around somewhere, see if it works. i'd hate to here that you send out the wrong part to RMA or exchange.

    Well just put together a machine with the same specs and the same error code of C1 and beep/pause/beep. It's a single 256MB RAM chip of Crucial DDR PC2100 CL2.5. Tried all 3 DIMM slots and reseated the video... all to no avail.

    No other ideas besides returning to Newegg for another stick? Thx.

    what did you do then? becasue i also slipped and hit my board with a screwdriver while installing my heatsink, and now i get a c1 memory error exactly like snowbomb.

    did you send the board back?

    Ever wonder how long it would take to install Win2k if CD's weren't around, how many disks/hours would it take, I could see it now, "please insert disk 184 with 50% showing on the progress bar" you'ld buy the OS in a case with wheels to avoid lawsuits for back injuries.

    I haven't looked at tapes in a long time, don't even know where to start

    LOL. I want to get a tape drive with massive size tapes. I want to be able to backup my entire drive to one tape. That would be nice! But how big (and expensive) to tape drives get???

    No 100GB tape drivers under $200??? I hate loading CD after cd after cd.......

    Heck wiz, even I got office 95 on CD
    It was 25 3 1/2" floppies =[ they are gone now, had a flood in the basement a while back, they won't be missed.

    how do u make a bootable cd??
    I used Easy CD creator, slected new disk, used a bootabl CD selected from the new CD menu, put a bootable floppy in (the one from Win98 is excellent, but the ones off the net are a bit better cuz they load smartdrive which is very good for copying files, or mass deleting. it makes an image, burns it to the CD along with any other files you've selected , when you boot from the CD it loads it's own drivers via the Win98 Boot disk, chages the A: drive to point to the image so you lose the use of your floppy (BTW if this is a problem, you can swap drives in your bios and also change it under the main settings screen to make your floppy B

    and did anyone of you guys use the epox ghost feature to do a backup of the hd?
    no

    i use floppies, to give my assignments to the professors...they dont trust burned cds for some reason
    Tell him your floppy drive died about 3 years ago when it became 95% obsolete. gone are the days of backing up to floppies, just to think to back up my HD would be 38,195 disks or even 79 700Mb Cd's but to back up valuable data for easy recovery, 2 CD's or 1000 disks, sorry my closet isn't big enough to hold that many diskettes.

    pshawn, first thing I did was made a bootable CD, floppies always fail no adays, you never use them anymore, when's the last time you bought something on floppy? (I still have Office 95 (can't remember the version #) and windows 3.11 floppies)

    I made a boot CD, copied over hardware drivers for 2k and 98, copied all the install files for 2k and SE, some other stuff I've downloaded. no more worries about needing floppies or pulling out extra CD's.

    what snowbomb forgot to mention was,that i had to go over and fix the mess he had!! allegedly he had them in the right slots,.. i went over put them in,turned on the power button,and presto changeo, it works!

    Freaky, Looks like there were three inswers in 5 minutes, and I know I did a couple of edits to fix my horrible typing, so I probably didn't even see your response when I went to start on mine. Good timing, huh? Aaah well, it's running (somewhat to my surprise, if it IS ECC ram) and that's what matters.

    Maybe what you though were "1" and "2" were actually "3" and "2" and NOW you have them in the right slots!!!!

    finally works

    Well, I finally got it to boot up. Strange thing is, I don't know why.

    After reseating everything I had in (graphics card and the two sticks of 256mb crucial), it still wouldn't boot up. Tried putting just one stick of memory in, still wouldn't boot up.

    I finally got it to boot up by putting the sticks in the second and third dimm slots. I still don't know why this worked since I always thought you had to have it in beginning in the first slot.

    Oh well, it works.

    Thanks for your help
