Question about Abit KT7A Motherboard

1 Answer

Version number? Hey, i want to update the Bios... but I cant work out what version my KT7a is. I've checked the sticker on the ISA card slot, but it doesn't say - instead it says 'KT7atif027697' underneath the barcode. I half suspect it's a 1.0 since it doesn't mention it, but I know that I bought the mobo in 2002 (since the date of the current bios is 31-01-2002 and 7n and I don't think I updated it) and I know that DDR motherboards such as the Asus A7m266 had been released - so I can't believe it was just out (e.g. v1) when I bought it Can anyone help me work out what version I've got? Thanks

Bios 7N is for the following

  1. Support up to 137GB HDD and above.
  2. HPT 370 RAID BIOS version 1.11.0402. The RAID function is for KT7-RAID / KT7A-RAID only. This BIOS version is also for non RAID boards and HPT BIOS will be automatically disabled while RAID controller chip not detected.
Version A9 is the last update
  1. Fix nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4x00 AGP card compatible issue with Windows XP.
  2. HPT 37x BIOS version 1.11.0402.The RAID function is for KT7A-RAID only. This BIOS version is also for non-RAID boards and HPT BIOS will be automatically disabled while RAID controller chip not detected.
  3. BIOS Compile Date: 7/11/2002.

The above link is for the KT7a with Raid, however the standard KT7a also lists the same bios updates, the KT7a Raid ver1 lists different bios that won't be compatible with your board.

Does the DG31PR motherboard support Geforce 8400GS 512MB PCI-E?


Yes, but check your BIOS and make sure the PCI-E slot is enabled.

Also, when you say doesn't start, you mean just the screen? Right?

My computer is displaying Alert! PCI Express card is operating in x1 mode. why?


Some Dell PC's PCI-E slot is version 1.0. New video cards are usually version
2.0 (maybe 1.1 or 1.0a ?). So they not work with 1.0 slot
at x16 speed and fall back to x1 speed automatically.

As far as I know there is no BIOS update, nor workaround to solve this
annoying behavior.

Processor won't work after bios update


I went to the manufacturer's website and checked on this. Based upon the MB Model number you provided, and the fact that you had a v1.16 BIOS version installed, there was no newer version available from the manufacturer. There WAS a v2.06 version on site, but there was a notice that you must update from a previous v2.xx to use it (apparently there are some part number differences). If you installed a v6.0 BIOS, you have either installed the wrong BIOS from the manufacturers website, or are trying to use a "hacked" BIOS. As there has been no BIOS updates since 2005 for this board, I would have to wonder what you are trying to make this board do that it couldn't do before. BIOS updates risk the loss of the board and should only be performed when absolutely necessary.

Try downloading AGP drivers for your motherboard, and updating your video card's drivers. While updating DirectX is important, you also need to update your video card and motherboard's drivers.

Ths screen displays ERROR,Expansion ROM not initialized-PCI network controller on Motherboard. Bus:04,Device:04,Function:00 how do i fix this? I am trying to install win 2003 server ,system not...


The ProLiant ML110 server with System BIOS Version 16 supports a total of eight IPL devices. Four IPL devices, such as the IDE controller and the floppy controller, are integrated, leaving support for four additional PCI IPL devices (i.e., PCI card plugged into PCI expansion slots); however, the ProLiant ML110 has five PCI expansion slots. Therefore, it is possible to configure the ProLiant ML110 with five PCI IPL devices (such as SCSI controllers or NICs) and exceed the limitation of System BIOS Version 16
The resolution to the problem is to update the System BIOS Version 17 which supports a total of nine IPL devices and five PCI IPL devices. Update the ProLiant ML110 server to System BIOS Version 17
i could not include the url for the download because you did not especify the generation of your server
but follow this link
1.select your server with the corresponding generation
2. select the operating system
3. from the download list select the bios update to a bootable usb or diskete
4.install the os

My card reader has stoped working how can i get it to read my memory cards agian


First check if other memory cards is working on the system so you can isolate the problem if the card reader slot is faulty or the memory card itself..If other memory card is also not working then we can say that the card reader slot is faulty..There are also 2 scenarios it can be the hardware itself or the driver installed on it..Check the BIOS of the computer is memory card slot is detected..If detected log on to windows and check device manager if card slot is properly installed..Update the driver if there's newer driver for the card slot..You can also try to perform system restore and pray it will work..If those steps don't work..You need to tear down the computer and take out the card slot and try to different known good system..If card slot still doesn't work..better purchase a new one.. Hope this will help..:)

Memory slot issue. When I put memory modules into both slots the screen doesn't start up. Tried with just one memory module and it works fine. It seems like only one of the slots have an issue.


OK bud you got 2 slots on this thing.  Lets call them slot A & B.  Install one RAM board in slot A and turn on your computer to see if it works.  Work?  If yes then power down and take the RAM board out of slot A and set the RAM board off to the right.  Now take your other RAM board and insert in slot A again and power up the laptop.  Don't work?  Well then, you got a defective RAM board.  But if this RAM board works also, then your RAM boards are good.  Now try them out individually in slot B.  If they don't work individually in slot B, then you know slot B is fu.k.d up.  Also, check to see if you got the correct #s on the RAM and that you haven't exceeded the laptop's specifications for max ram.

Blank screen


See lets isolate the fault...As u have checked the monitor cable is fine,the monitor is fine and the video card is also fine..I believe you have tried these 3 components on another pc and it has worked fine..Rit? Now the last thing is first download the latest BIOS update (Find the current BIOS version number,Press F1 when Pc starts,on Main menu u can find BIOS number ; From ur other PC,check the Internet for BIOS or ROM updates keeping in mind the BIOS version number u have noted down ;Download and install the BIOS updates to a CD ..copy the BIOS files to the hard disk, and then restart the computer with the CD still in the drive...That should work..2ndly,I would update my video card driver from the internet using my other computer in the same way..
