What's happening with it right now? Did the bios not take, or didn't the PC wanna boot to the floppy

I cant even see the screen where it says my cpu,ram and drivers installed in the system. My monitor says no imput detected..which i think means that the bios didnt even loaded to that point were it analyzed the videocard. So i cant reflash the bios because i cant get even into bois because its not loaded..All this happened after using utility that came with my board which was suppose to change a bios loading screen. After accepting the picture that i chose program flashed the bios correctly and after words "succesfully done" it asked me to restart the system which i did. After that the computer wont even show anything on the screen and no bios beeps were present. By the way could it be that post is initiated by bios so if my computer goes through post that means that bios is still working?

Tell me the number of the bios you tried to load and the number of the flash utility.

Looks like your BIOS is dead. I had the same situation before. I called the matherboard manufacture company and they sent me a new BIOS chip for $20.

Hmm if you REALLY need my bios # sure i can tell you.. But im sorry all my problem isnt even with ecs p4vxasd2+, its with a different board but i hope they are the same..I have Gigabyte GA-8SQ800 board with phoenix (i dunno how to spell it) award bios. After using utility called face something (which was on the same cd with drivers for the board and its desighned for changind bios startup logos) my computer wont boot..I know this forum is about a "little bit" different thing but i hope someone could recommend doing something..
Thanx, Alex.

This is pretty self explanatory. You can either update through the internet (which would be tough if your boards screwed <g>). Or download amnually. The bios you want (it's not the 800 ultra is it?) is version F8a. You can find it at this site.

This site doesn''t like long links so you may have to c & p this if it won't take you there automatically. This next one is for your USB 2.0 and chipset drivers

Have fun.

Alex, I your situation the best solution is to order a new BIOS chip from mobo manufacture. OR buy a new mobo.
If your BIOS is dead (looks like it is) you cannot flash it again because you cannot boot niether from floppy nor CD.
You may try to find a computer shop which will be able to flash your BIOS using special extrernal device. But this is not 100% successfull procedure, so nobody wants to do it anymore.
OR you can do the following trick. If you have anybody with the EXACTLY the same mobo, pull out your BIOS chip, boot up the other computer, replace the good chip with yours, and try to flash it again.
That might work out. I did it with my mobo after I recieved a new chip. BUT remember the other mobo must be EXACTLY the same.

Alex.

So, did anyone ever figure out how to break the FSB lock on this board?

Nope all you get is the CPU clock jumper to play with. 100 or 133. Boring eh?

Alex did you try to clear CMOS ? If not that is a good try ! Sometimes even when we flash BIOS and do it right ,the thimg will go bad .You can read lots of places where this has happened. Try cleaing CMOS first if you have`nt already,this should help. Good luck

So, I can't over clock then? Well, off to buy a new MOBO.

Hi guys...
Ia had a PCI navidia card for a long time...everything was working fine... Yesterday I took a VGA card from my neighbour... It was running on his computer, but not on my mobo...
I just got a lot of beps and that's all...
What's the problem, how can I fix it?
If I put back the old PCI card everything boots up just fine...

If the old card was a PCI and the new card is an AGP then you need to go in the BIOS and on the PCI/Plug and Play window you need to resaet the Primary Graphics Adapter setting from PCI to AGP. Also you will need to go to the Advanced setup page and set the AGP Mode to 2X or 4X (whatever the new card is) Set AGP Comp driving to auto (sets card current) and the AGP aperture to the appropriate amount for your system. The aperture tells the computer how much system memory to share with the card. If you have a lot of physical mamory set the aperture to the size of the cards memory. If you only have a little like 128MB you may want to set it to 1/2 the cards memory.

I had the 133MHz problem. After I installed 1Gig of DDR333 I tried it with the jumpers as said and now I'm stable at 2.67Gig from 2.Gig. I'm not gonna try to flash though, tried it once on a chaintech, it made a noise I've never heard from a computer.
