Hello,

The EPA logo and the Fullscreen logo all are stored in the bios. That is the update 
you download from the manufacturer's website contains both the logos in it. So if you mod the bios update and then apply the patch the next time when you boot your computer you will see the new logo.

***BEWARE A BAD FLASH CAN RENDER YOUR MOTHERBOARD USELESS****

Software Used

Winflash 1.51 ftp://ftp.ecs.com.tw/driver/bios/flash/winflash151.exe
Award Bios Editor 1.0 http://sourceforge.net/projects/awdbedit/
CBROM 2.15 http://www.biosmods.com/download/award/cbrom215.zip



The mods are in two sections.  If you only want one or the other, just skip to that section.

FULLSCREEN LOGO

1. Make Sure the motherboard uses the Award Bios.

2. Either Download the new Bios from the Manufacturer website or get it from the system Bios directly by backing it up.  For backing up and updating bios, I use WinFlash 1.51 (there might be a newer version, I just stick with what works!).

3. Now we have the bios file on disk. Now make a new bitmap image with any of your favorite imaging software. Make sure that the final bitmap image you have created is 640*480 and 256 colors.

4. Now use the CBROM Utility to change the boot logo in the bios file.
This is done by using Command Prompt

c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /logo logo.bmp

5. Now to check whether the bios file was updated correctly. Run the Award bios editor. (make sure the dlls in the plugin directory are moved to the folder with awbedit.exe)

6. Load the bios.bin in the Award bios editor and check in the left hand list for Fullscreen Logo and that it does show your logo.  If okay your bios is now ready to be flashed.

7. Now use Winflash utility, load the bios.bin and click on update .

8. Reboot the computer and the bios logo is changed.


EPA Logo:

Procedure for the EPA logo is just same except the few things.

Image size is : 138*84 16 Colors and 72 pixels/inch

Command for adding to bios file is : c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /epa epalogo.bmp

When you check for the EPA logo in the Award Bios Editor, the colors will not be same as those that you choose but when you flash the bios and reboot, it will show the original colors.


*****PRECAUTIONS*****

Never try to flash bios without a uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
Close all the programs before flashing from Windows.
ALWAYS wait for flash program to notify you for reboot, DO NOT EVER EVER reboot when you think it is ready or taking too long.  Mucking up the flash CAN MAKE YOUR MOTHERBOARD GARBAGE!!!  You have been warned!!

I hope that this helps,
Ken

How do I get rid of the soyo dragon off my computer. It is the first thing I see after I turn on my computer


You can turn this off in your Bios settings.
To do this, press delete when computer starts booting up and this will open the bios screens.
Go to Advanced Bios Features and look for 'Full Screen Logo Show', set this to disabled.
Some of the soyo boards will vary in how you do this so just look at what yours has in the Advanced Bios page, some you will change the Logo size to make it go away and another you switch between Logo-0 and Logo-1.
Lastly, if you are running the p4i865pe plus dragon 2 v1.0 board and/or bio version 865dp1a2 there seems to be no way to get rid of it (updating that bio version to the newest one may change that though)

Hope this helps you resolve the issue!

I have changed my boot up logo on my asus p5p43td motherboard using my logo.,, but now i want to change it back to the original asus logo, please help..


Is this in the logo for the bios or is it in the operating system?
If it is in the bios, then you have to read your helps in *********** board manual. These can be downloaded on the Internet in pdf files.

If it is in the operating system...
Go to your operating system helps, and you can also find help for such on the Internet.
The various operating systems are not all the same. Most will have a small file or script you can edit.

Motherboard Problem


Hi it sounds like an operating system crash to me, before going out spending anything try entering the BIOS by hitting "delete" when logo comes up then change "boot secwence" to boot from CD first then HD second.
Next insert XP disc press F10 to save changes and exit......it will then boot from cd and you can try to repair operating system an still keep all your files.

hope this helps

you can also perform a full format in the same way :-)
