Thanks. I've just googled it and it seems to be a common problem but I can't find an answer.

Just swapped the ATX 12 volt to another socket on the PSU and now I have an 89 error on the mobo

I've found this link for the manual, and as you state the code 69h mentions Turn on L2 cache. I can't see where you can do this, the only thing I can suggest is to completely reset your BIOS by removing the battery as described below (from pg 38 of the manual):

Code 89h states 2 possible reasons, viz: Assign IRQs to PCI devices and/or Set up ACPI table at top of the memory.

I still think that you will be just as well resetting your BIOS to its defaults as I suggested above.

As far as I know, it's not actually asking you to do anything, but this is as far as it got into post, which is usually not near the end of post.

I think dwarf is right on, myself I would remove the Cpu, then reset, double check all connections and make no assumptions, look at it all from a fresh perspective, it's easy to repeat mistakes.

Yeah. I just swapped everything over on these 2 pcs and tried to boot and I got the 69 error again. I'll do as you suggest and reset the BIOS. Have to take out the GPU to get at it. What a pain.
Thanks to all of you for your help. I'll be back when I've tried that.

Well. I took out the battery and thereby reset the CMOS. However I now get an 89 error and no boot or screen display. The LEDs at the top right are all lit. I think they are the phase LEDs and indicate CPU load. I also get 4 LEDs near the 24 pin ATX socket which I think are DDR load.

Any ideas?

Well, if it were a contest and we were placing bets, I would bet on a bad Cpu, but that's just me.

Can you get a loaner Cpu to test with? I'm assuming you don't have a spare or you'd have mentioned it.

If not is there another computer you can throw the Cpu in to verify it works?

Afraid not. It's an i7 920 and it's only just over a year old. Before changing the PSU it was working perfectly.

You have no idea what the PSU might have fried when it failed. Like I said in my first post, it could have very well toasted a component or two on the motherboard, to include the CPU or anything else.

John I am sorry you are still struggling with this issue.
FliGi7 is absolutely correct when he said that when the PS failed it
could have taken out the CPU or MB. That CPU, that MB and that PS are
quite pricy as those items go. Before even thinking about replacing
any of these, can you get your hands on (borrow, swap, beg) another
Plain Jane PS. As long as it has the newer 24 pin main connector
and two (2) of the 4 pin 5v connectors with it, it would be good enough
to test with. Let's get the possibility of a faulty new PS out of the way.
