Tyan Tiger MPX S2466-4M Problems
Posted on 2002-07-24
Well, i shelled out the money for one of these babies probally a couple months ago now, really starting to regret it.
Started off beautifully everything worked, ran nicely. Untill one day when it just started to freeze after drive detection, wouldnt load the cmos either, so i cleared it with no luck, swapped prossers (used it single, each prosser, each connector) with no luck, ram, video card, and so on and so forth. Contact Tyan and after about a week of trying things they have me send the board in for RMA.
3 and a half weeks later (two days ago) my new board finally arrives, and i breath a sigh of relif that i no longer have to torerate that god forsaken Celron 466 again. I hook up the board in a basic config and nothing, so i toss on the System Speaker to see if it will give me a clue and get thump thump thump thump thump... counted over 15 and it doesnt stop so it doesnt seem to be a beep code, and note these are thumps, like a base sound not a standard beep.
Yesterday i borrowed a Duron 1000 processor and a different stick of RAM from work, and tried them out, same issue so im assuming its not the prossesor or RAM. Ive used 4 different video cards (PCI and AGP) so thats not the problem, so my only assumption is that Tyan sent me a defective board back, or i have something set wrong.
System Stats are
Board: Tyan Tiger MPX S2466N-4M
CPUS: 2 Athlon MP 1800+
Power: Enermax EG451P-VE 431W
Please can someone offer me some advice? ill go insane if i have to wait another month.
