Question about EliteGroup ECS GeForce6100SM-M (1.0) Socket AM2/ MCP61S/ SATA2/ A&V&L/ MATX Motherboard
Does anyone know where i can try to update the bios to support AMD 6400+? I bought this mb and cpu at Fry's and they assured me it would work. Everything works great, but when i try to burn a cd/dvd or access SATA or IDE sometimes it just shutsdown intermitently. I checked CPU temp, viruses, updated bios to 6.00PG (5/23/08), downloaded the suggested nVidia drivers for mcp61, psu is good, memory checks out fine. I'm runing Vista 32-bit... when i run biosagent plus, it recommends a bios update, but can't find an update (according to ECS, i have the newest one). some posted it's the LAN causing sparatic shutdown, but i think it's something else... can anyone help?
If there is a problem with one of the devices connections , or one of the devices chips are failing it will cause a shut down to protect the rest of the circutry.
try disconnecting all but cd/dvd drive to see if this happens , then only plug the sata or other ide including the power.
if a virus is in bios , resetting the clr bios and removing the battery on the motherboard can remove it
if the local area network is causing the shut down you would have data transfer problems or slow communications,
and there could also be a problem on the board
