"C1" could relate to many things.

Can you tell us more of what the exact message is and exactly when you are seeing it.

My first guess is that it could be bad capacitors on your motherboard, check your motherboard and see if any of the capacitors are bulging or leaking. Here is a link to help you:

the c1 code is on a pc analyzer card that i have. the mobo is booting up and stoping on the c1 error code, there is no display singal to the moitor. and the cpu and ram are fully working parts(tested on working pc). the capacitors all look fine with no burning marks. anything more you might need to no plz ask.

I don't find those POST cards much good because I can rarely interpret the answer.

Also the code is specific to the type of BIOS you have, which you don't know.

Anyway, c1 can be:

Award - memory presence test; OEM specific test to size onboard memory. Bad SIMM

Chip & Tech - I/O channel activated

Ami - NMI is disabled. Power on delay started

Phoenix - Initialize error logging.

The name of the BIOS is normally written on the BIOS chip - you'll need to check it, but unless it's Award, I can't interpret the problem.

Also if the code was 1C NOT C1 the error is different......

Have you read through this?

well it looks like it's telling you the memory is bad - have you got some more that you can try?

First, just take it out and re-seat it
