SO I built my computer a few years ago, the specs are down below under this, and this morning I woke up after leaving it on all night, went to use it and it was frozen up, no clue why, and I couldn't do anything, I had to reset it. Thing is when i reset it I would get no display, all the lights, and fans would start up, but no display. On the board I'm getting the Error Codes 01, 02, 68, and EA, and it keeps cycling through them over and over. I looked in my manual and it is of no help, here's the manual so you guys can look too.

They're at the very end.
I don't know what it could be, I'm at a loss and I've never come into this problem before. I even took apart my entire computer and Rebuilt it, rerouted all the wires, and cleaned everything of dust. same thing, Won't post and I keep getting those error codes.

I tried my power supply in another computer and it worked fine, So I'm left to think that it may be a motherboard problem or a GPU problem. But I really don't know, I'd love if you guys could help me out on this.

It's begun starting up, giving error codes f3, f6, f3, then 68 and powering off, then starting up and doing that over and over again.
I tried running it with 1 stick of ram, closest or furthest slot from the cpu, i removed the bios batter, and 24 pin, held down the power button to clear all power form the board, tried again and it's still not working
I then removed the cpu, and started it with no cpu, it started fine, and ran without shutting on and off.
From what I can tell it's a ram problem, what do you guys think?

I took the ram out today and tried to boot it up, just to see what it would do, and it didn't make any difference at all. Did the same thing.
Would this mean that my Ram Modules somehow died?

All these code are reserved for EVGA and aren't standard, that's why we don't find anything about that...

I suggest to try with another videocard, to unplug HDD/SSD/Disc drives and all USB if possible (PS2 keyboard, if possible or just the keyboard plugged in) to see if that's a defective sata/USB device, also replace the stick of ram by another (not the matched one, some cheap new ram like 4 go for 5-10$ or a unused one in your basement cause maybe the complete set is dead) If it continue to no post after all that, try the CPU in another mobo, if it works, it should be your mobo, if not that's your CPU...

Also be sure to correctly reset the bios, PSU at off (plugged to ground the PC) remove the batt and press the button, hold it 15-20 sec to be sure, reinstall the battery and power on again...

You could also contact EVGA to know what these codes means...

Good luck ;)
