Question about Abit AMD K7 MB;VIA KT400;SATA,DDR400 (AT7MAXII) Motherboard
I need your advice before I buy a new BIOS chip. For some reason I had to upgrade BIOS, no working backup was done. I tried to flash my BIOS some 5 times, mostly using awdflash supplied with firmware. I acted according to the instructions, namely did it by booting my PC from a floppy. The floppy is OK, I tried more than one floppy. Every time it's been successful and PC works just fine, but ... only with default settings in BIOS. Every time when I try to change anything in BIOS, let's say time settings or even just entering BIOS and exiting it using Save and Exit option, my PC doesn't start anymore. Black screen and nothing happens, no beep, nothing. The only solution is to reset CMOS then it works again. As a result I have to run 2000+ Athlon CPU with 1500+ settings and I have no chance to boot from CD. I suspect BIOS is damaged,but can I be sure about it?
It is possible that the bios is damaged. You ran the flash utility correctly by what you posted. It would be worth it. Most companies chargh $5.00 us. Can't beat that.
