does your mac have a battery back up battery like pc's do.
the battery in the mac may not have enough power to keep the cmos information together, replace the battery and you should be okay

Asrock 775dual-vista mac address are invalid in both cmos and flash'


reinstalling your os has nothing to do with bios, you are getting this message long before any hard disks are involved in fact the bios doesnt even have the interrupts running for the USB devices at this point, you'll notice this if you have a USB keyboard. The only possible solution is to flash or replace your BIOS chip - this is a LAST RESORT option. I dont recommend it if the system works other than the LAN. Your best solution is to install a network card in a free PCI slot, they are pretty cheap if you know where to look, heck even goodwill carries them in their 1$ computer junk bin thats where i bought a few of my 100baset cards (of course at your own risk) hope it helps

My asrock p4vm890 is has invalid mac address for both cmos and bios


The MAC is the unique identifier for the onboard LAN chip - if it's invalid then the chip has been fried - disable it from the BIOS and install a new PCI LAN card.

The onboard LAN chip has been fried. Disable it from the BIOS and install a separate PCI LAN card.

My machine has this problem. every time i switch it on it says mac address are invalid in both cmos and flash. what do i do?


configured the BIOS settings yet? Make sure your set the RAM to run as Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB
the RAM you installed and to match the CPU bus. And there's probably several other settings that need to be tweaked as well. For example, if you're not running RAID, disable it.
If the problems continue, you may wanna try updating the BIOS. Actually, I just had a look at the ASRock site & here's what the latest BIOS fixes: "Modify MAC address function algorithm"

Invalid mac address


impossible. MAC addresses are what are burned onto the device. you have recorded them incorrectly or the device is faulty and will not work anyway.

Mac address is invalid in both cmos and flash


The MAC address is burned in the Ethernet card chip, you won't see it in the Bios or if you do you can't change it. MAC address changer are tweaks to not being tracked.

The solution to know if the card is blown is to do a complete reinstall of your operating system and if then you can't connect whit it, it is indeed dead. Then Disable it in the Bios and had a PCI one to replace it.

Those kind of problem whit network cards happens a lot when you get a power outage, if you had one in the last couple of days your problem is most likely it.
