Re: Problem w/ Pcchips A13G+
PC-Chips infamous for memory controller issues.
In the BIOS, set the memory speed to the highest CAS and lowest speed. Make sure FSB and memory timing are asynchronous so you can slow the memory. Turn off interleave, etc... Is your memory mismatched? Use one stick, and pick the best one. Try a different one. Almost guarantee it is a memory issue of some sort.

It's unlikely that the BIOS itself has been "erased".
The BIOS is "software", recorded on a small "Eraseable Programmable Read Only Memory" chip.
It takes a piece of hardware, an 'EPROM-writer' to update the contents of the chip. Or, the BIOS can be updated by a "BIOS-update" from the manufacturer of the motherboard.
The BIOS has "settings" -- the battery on the motherboard should supply a "trickle" current to the chip that holds those "settings" -- like an alternator provides a "trickle" charge to recharge your automobile's battery.
Try using the "BIOS reset" jumper on the motherboard, to reset those "settings" to their default value, and then try to boot the motherboard.
hi, check with the BIOS settings about the Primary and secondary hard disk. Select the bootable Hard disk as Primary by changing the Jumper settings. Make the other harddisk as secondary by changing the jumper setting as said on the label of harddisk. Now you try to boot, your problem will be solved.
Hi Jason_UK, the motherboard revision does not matter in regards to the SATA size. (The board does support SATA). 2TB is a limit imposed by the MBR partition table. Assuming the disk uses 512 sectors. If the sector size is increased to 4KB, the limit becomes 16TB. Suggest you setup your serial ATA SATA disk drives by downloading the manufactures bootable floppy disk setup software. Most SATA manufactures also provide bootable CD software if you do not have a floppy drive in your system. You will be able to change the size of the clusters allowing you to have access to the entire drive. The floppy software will also allow you to format the disk & there are other features that can be turned on or off. Neither windows nor the bios can make these changes.
