Question about EliteGroup ECS P4VXASD2 VIA P4X266A Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (59815) Motherboard
AMI 686-HiFlex-Bios V11.25 Can this bios chip be flashed for a Pentium 4 1800.0 MHz cpu ???
Hi, I have investigated your issue and the short answer is NO. It is unlikely that it would be the BIOS chip itself.
However in saying that, there is NO reason why you could not try to replace this IC, with another to prove or disprove weather it is or not. (Providing you can actually replace it, by unsoldering, difficult, or if it is in a socket, then it is easy.
You can get a replacement BIOS from BIOS Man. link below. There are other BIOS replacement websites to help as well.
However one cannot flash a BIOS for another CPU, UNLESS the manufacturer has already written a BIOS to include that particular CPU. and the MB will already work with the CPU you wish to use.
ALL BIOS's will support most standard CPU's though. So if your MB would already support this CPU in it's original mode, then YES you could reflash the BIOS and it will work. Otherwise NO.
It is most likely best though to obtain a MB and BIOS that already supports the desired CPU.
