Clyde Kawate Apr 16, 2003, 03:03pm EDT Report Abuse
I'm having problems with a M810LR motherboard I recently acquired. I have a 1.0 Ghz Athlon processor with 512 MB SDRAM on the board. When I set the processor at 1.0 Ghz (via the system BIOS), the system will be running fine then suddenly reset and start scanning the hard drive with a message that I improperly shutdown. I have no such problems with the processor speed set at the alternate speed of 750 Mhz. In addition, I'm having sound problems. I connected the case speaker plug to the board SPEAKER connection but get no sound coming out of the speakers. I do get sound from external speakers when I connect them to the Line Out jack. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I too have the same motherboard. I was running it with a Ge-force 4 MX 440 graphics card on windows XP pro. I found with this there was just random crashes of my system. After about 3 months of try to firgure out why and how (including goign back where I bought the system and the graphics card) I found no solution. I then (being a dedicated on-line gamer) decided to update my graphics card to a Ti4200. I found the system was more stable but there were still random crashes happening. I therefore did a full format and loaded Windows ME onto my system and I have found it to run perfectly. Not a single problem at all.......

I know this is a bit drastic but its the only thing I found helped. I have since tried re-installing XP and the problem was still there. I am not sure if certain graphics cards along with the motherboard and XP dont like each other or what. It baffled me and a few friends that know a lot more about these things than me months of headaches. Trying everything.

Hope this sheds a little light on the subject


PS I have never had trouble with sound at all.......

Depends which version you can get.

If you get pcb Version 7.1 or 7.1a then -- Yes

there might be a BIOS update for earlier versions that would let you -- but I havent checked that far. Have a look at PC CHIPS web site for these.

Sorry I hit enter too quick.

More on that: The V7.x support T/bred core but it looks like earlier versions V3.x and v5.x may only support the Palomino core.

anyway heres the page.

Okay, here's _my_ request for info/help. According to what I can read as it flashes by, I've got an M810LR with the original BIOS programming. the pcchips website is singularly uninformative about the LR, and a Micro$loth engineer has just informed me that XP won't run on the original BIOS... I've got to flash the da*ned thing. I'm trying to find a good file to flash with. Anybody got one, or know where I can get one? I'd rather not buy a whole new motherboard for this, but that's the only other choice I can see. (I've already tried doing the upgrade on my current hardware/software, last week, and I'm still recovering from MS's miserable excuse for a fallback.)

>> Re: M810LR Motherboard
The BIOS tabs on the PC chips site doesnt seem to be working to get the latest or upgraded BIOS for your board.

The closest I can get is from here.

but on a quick glance, from what i have discovered from here there is nothing suitable.

To update the BIOS you need to download the correct BIOS update file then reflash the BIOS with it using the rebootable floppy. If you havent done it before i would read up on exactly how to do it for your motherboard. If done incorrectly it can kill your mobo dead.

I have the same motherboard M810LR. I installed a fresh copy of windows 2000, but unfourtunately i couldn't find the Cd that installs the drives for my hardware devices. I found on the internet everything I needed, but I still have my PCI device disable. I have been everywhere on the net , and I can't find a driver for that device. If anyone knows how can I get the CD with the drives or a location where I can find this drive, please let me know.

Well... I don't need information about the M810LR any more. The little POS died on me two days ago. We had to get back into business within 24 hours, so we bought a new box. Now the box with the LR in it is sitting around, waiting until I can get to it to replace it with the new MB. Not sure if I want to deal with PC-Chips any more... I haven't been all that happy with their quality, though their price is good.

I have just perchased a Soltek Geforce FX5200 to go onto a M810LR. But having some troubles with blurred and double imaged, sometimes blank screen in windows XP. Have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers (including removing and replacing the graphics card). Nothing seems to work. Do I need to update the motherboard drivers, or BIOS?

How do I flash my BIOS?
If your system currently operate smoothly and there is no problem happened, your system is not suggested to do the BIOS upgrade, since improper operation or wrong BIOS code update might cause the system unable to start again.

The requirements of flashing BIOS
To flash the BIOS, you need the AMI BIOS program and latest BIOS code from Both of these two items can be downloaded from BIOS area of the PC Chips web site. Check the BIOS date code to see if they are the same as before. If so, it's not necessary to flash it since BIOS does not have newer revision. Before flashing it, make sure the BIOS manufacturer and the model number of your board.

The procedure of flashing BIOS:
Always copy the AMINF3xx program and BIOS file to the harddrive - and do not use floppy disks which are easily corrupted. You must flash the bios in DOS mode - with no drivers loaded. With Windows 9x/ME, the safest option is to tap the "F8" key during boot up and to bring up the "boot menu" and then select "Safe Mode Command Prompt Only". Either that or to boot from a floppy with *NO* autoexec.bat or config.sys files. They are only ways that I know of to fully guarentee that no drivers what so ever are loaded. The simplest method of flashing the bios is to use these commands at the DOS prompt:

(This will perform the actual update) .... or....

(This will save the original BIOS to the file ORIGINAL.ROM)

Here are some other cards that users have had success with. Note that many card have to be set to AGP 1x with a tool such as Rivatuner, to run with any stability. This has to be done in safe mode with some XP systems. While this affects 3DMark scores, gaming performance is unlikely to be affected in this motherboard. The revision number of the board tested on is listed where available. Just because your revision might not be listed, doesn't necesarily mean it won't work for you (unless specified in list of cards that do not work).
