Bios problem

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I recently added a new CPU to my system and my bios only partially recognizes it. I am pretty sure that this means I need to update my bios?

Just clear your CMOS. Take out the battery for a few minutes or use the CMOS clear pins.

yeah... give the old girl a re-flash.

Maybe try the BIOS version that came with the mobo...no particular reason, I just generally start at the bottom (oldest) and work my way forward.



...try Jackz's CMOS clear first. ... less involved.

When flashing.... do it with the old CPU in, just in case.
Once again...

One last piece of advice when flashing: Do not flash while overclocked. Return everything to default settings.

On the other hand, I've flashed BIOSes several times using ASUS', Abit's and Biostar's proprietary Windows BIOS flashers with no issues whatsoever.

(Just giving a positive word if a Windows flash is all you have available to you.)

Trust me all it takes is one mishap in code and thats it...its over..unless you have a dual BIOS. Flash from DOS mate. Its the safest way.
