1 Answer

Flashing the BIOS

Ok, I want to use superupdate on an NF4SK8AA - 8EKRS.

do i need to mess with any jumpers? should the jumpers be set like in the 'readme 1st' .pdf that comes with the new bios files (from the foxconnchannel.com site)?

or do I just point 'superupdate' at the .bin file and flash it, and it doesn't matter where the jumpers are?

You shouldnt have to mess with the jumpers only if you changed them before. The flash will flas the board in its current state. Just run the flash and follow the guidelines and you should be ok.

Dear sirs, i put wrong parameters in bios. so


99% of all bios don't need to be flashed or updated. Unless you have a specific problem with your bios and you go into the manufacturer's website and can read about the bios updates and see your problem as one of the ones that the bios update fix, don't update your bios. It's not going to make your computer run any better, it's not going to cure all the problems you have. About half the time it just messes up your computer or can ruin it. A lot of motherboard manufacturers have come up with Windows based programs to flash the bios but if they fail then you have to go back to the old method and they usually require having a floppy disk which most computers don't come with anymore. If you're one of those people that want to play around with your computer and do a little experimenting you're must better off to go format your harddrive, wipe it clean and start all over. Then you can go find all your new driver updates, software updates, find all the files you just deleted off your computer cause you forgot to backup before you formatted it. It's a lot more fun than flashing and updating your bios because your computer will still work when you get done. Sorry dude if the pin reset doesn't work the only option is possibly putting a new bios chip on the motherboard but I haven't seen one of those in years. Not sure they even still make them detachable and you'd have to find a motherboard to get one off of.

Problem on start up


there should be a cmos reset jumper on the motherboard somewhere close to the bios chip. Given you didn't mention the actual model and brand of mobo i cannot be certain. Also you can remove the little watch battery for a few minutes and it too should reset the bios.

6U214 Motherboard Failure??


1. try clearing your bios setup using the jumper provided on your motherboard. make sure that the computer is shutdown and power cable unplugged before doing this. make the jumper settings and wait for 3 to 5 minutes before returning the jumper settings back to its normal position.to locate the bios clear jumper; it's always near the cmos battery of the mainboard. after doing so, plug back your power cable and power "on" your computer. select bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

or

2. or try flashing your motherboard again using the latest bios file available for your board downloaded from dell website. and select to bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

Clear bios settings on m963gv motherboard


You have to shut off the power and then move the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard to the clear position for just a few seconds. Apparently the manual that shipped with m963gv may not have the right information as to the location of the CMOS driver. Try going to PCCHIPS's website and download their manual in PDF form:

http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=354&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=7&LanID=2

You'll find the CMOS jumper location on page 11 of the PDF file (or page 6 on the printed format). On Page 15 is the instruction on where to place the jumper (again, when it's printed, it's labeled page 10).

Boot up failure


It's possible you are using a USB keyboard and it is not being detected. You should be able to turn the caps lock light on and off if it is working. Try a ps2 keyboard.

Cmos resetting


Ok so you know the bat is good cause you checked the voltage. You double checked the bios jumper making sure it is not set to clear. Looking in your manual you can go to AMD XP3200+, & you are under that. So either you have a short or your bios needs flashed because it's messed up. Could have went when the cpu died.

Restarting


It sounds as if you have a flat CMOS battery, remove and replace. To delete the password and bios settings locate 'JBAT1' terminal on motherboard and put jumper from pins 1-2 across 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2. You will have to reset time and detect drives in standard CMOS settings.
