How much and what kind of ram are you using? Code 19 has to do with the memory controller, 04 is when its processing memory spd, and no info for FA.

See page 112 of you manual for error codes.  Those are Award codes.  04 and 19 are reserved and FA is not listed.

What behavior are you experiencing?  I would expect a complete boot failure.

Didn't read far enough and missed them.  Does appear to be a memory/memory controller issue.

Is this the same board that was replacement for a damaged unit? Are you usng any of the components that were on the one that was charred, if so any component that was on the original damaged motherboard is suspect.
