Question about EliteGroup K7VTA3 V5.0 Motherboard
I have the problem wit boot of my computer. May be you can help me!System: Athlon XP 2200, Socket A, motherboard: ESC, K7VTA3 V5.0, VIA KT333/VT8235
Computer can not boot, on the screen is following message:
Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0
BIOS ROM checksum error
Detecting floppy drive A media...
It is no possible to overwrite BIOS using awdflash exe (ver. from 8.22 to 8.87). The older versions of awdflash are showing error message "System was not new BIOS vesion! Please update ROM BIOS first", the newer versions are detecting Flash type -WINBOND 49F002U/5V and the programm hungs up after warning message "Don't Turn Off Power Or Reset System!".
I have changed CMOS battery, cleared the content of the CMOS memory using jumper on the motherboard - no changes.
I can boot DOS using floppy drive, but I can not rename or copy any file on the floppy disk.
How to resolve this problem? Is it possible, that flash memory is not damaged, or I have to change flash?
To be honest if you have tried to re-flash your bios, and it did not work you still either have hte wrong version or the disc drive your using to flash it from is faulty. try another floppy drive/disc and try again. if that dont work. to be honest it's not worth getting it repaired just go out and spend £30-40 on a new mobo. sorry i'm not more helpfull but i dont believe it's worth spending that much time and effort on an old system like that with this kind of problem. good luck to you. let me know how you get on ok.
