Trying to learn how to use a new Post card I just got. It appears to be a decent one. It has 8 LED lights and shows 4 codes such as 0061 Post code. The LED's are +12v, -12v, +5v, +3.3v, CLK, IRDY, FRAME, RESET. During boot all the LED's light but RESET. The IRDY & FRAME are intermittent. The RESET never lights. At end of boot RESET, IRDY & FRAME are out. Right now I'm more concerned with the codes as I'm troubleshooting an old XP machine that will not allow me to install Windows XP. It gets 2/3 installed and locks up everytime. After 6 boots with the card in the PCI slot I got 6 different codes at the end of the boot. I get quite a few during boot but I understand the only one I need to be concerned with is the final one or whenever the card code locks at any particular one code. Here are the codes and also can you explain why 4 code numbers and are the first 2 on left the only ones I need be concerned with. Any help would be appreciated as I'm new to POST cards usage.
0061, 0061, 00AA, 60A9, 6160, AAA8

The manual has the codes but no instuctions on how to use it. What I need is advice from someone who has used these cards before and knows how to use them. My card as previously stated has 4 LCD's where you read the codes and the manual only has 2 digit codes. What I need to know is what do the 4 LCD's mean. I think the 8 LED's mean that when lit the power supply is good.
