Video Game Repair/Golden Tee 2014
I recently purchased a used GT 2014 on line... I set it up, it boots up great and plays the previews just fine. If I press start to play, it starts to go into play mood to choose # of golfers then blanks out and displays an "ERROR 14 I/O Board Incompatiable... I thought it may have something to do with the controls, so I restarted the unit... previews play just fine again... without touching any controls, it will play the previews for about 20-30 minutes and then display the same error... any direction on fixing this would be greatly appreciated...
The I/O board on the Nighthawk system is serial number and version specific- that is to say that the security code for the version that you have is stored in the I/O board and will give you that error if it doesn't match the serial number and version of the computer you have. I've seen this before where someone will put a newer version of the game on the hard drive and then sell it (as it will get a higher price than an older edition) but never actually pay the upgrade fee to upgrade the I/O board. This will cause that exact problem that you're seeing.
The upgrade fees are hundreds of dollars, and only available through the company that makes Golden Tee.
I would contact the seller and either get an unused upgrade kit from them, or contact the company and see what a true upgrade would cost.
I wish I had better news for you!
