Just redownloaded pdf with specification to say that post code 31 - Crisis Recovery has initiated by software (corrupt flash)

Hi,

Do you get any video?

There were some earlier reports of certain BIOS/NVIDIA card imcompatibilities.

Do you have an ATI card or other PCI video card you could use to test?

Justin.

You will laugh, but I found the problem... It was jumper which not connected as it should. I think metal connectors inside it has a bit defect, thats why motherboard can't boot. Jumper was swaped 3-5 times and woalla - motherboard booted.

Any way, thx for answer. Didn't sleep 2 days =)

I have had this board for a while, kinda finicky, but decided to build a new machine on it. Kept running in to this problem. Thank you for the thread. Replaced jumper, boots right up.
