I have a FIC FB11(with the most updated bios version IAA45, socket370, Intel chipset 440bx). I have been using a Pentium 3-EB, 800mhz for a while now. Recently I tried to get this Pentium 3-S, 1.4ghz to work in it. Whenever the Pentium 3-S, 1.4ghz is in, the only thing I get is a blank screen. What can I do to make this work?
I also have a Slotket 3(370 pin) for a FIC VB-601. Do you think that it will work in this one?

According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel
Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte
Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56No Version4BFF1P40 Have you tried installing the no version bios?In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference. 945G7MA-8EKRS2945G7MA-8EKRS2H Update at your own risk.. hope this helps, thanks for posting.
Hi, You may not find the drivers for your P2 system. Because its very old one. But then too i will provide you a link and download the drivers by asking the motherboard type and model. If you did not find the drivers then try with old motherboard cd's which you can get from any service centers. Thank you.
Intel's link will not load the bios link. You're board is still an Intel & should be compatible with any Intel board with the 915 series chipset but it is not. After running a comparison with other boards as shown below. You're board was made for FIC. As a member of Driverguid I found nothing & also check every user who suggested a site for you as well. Nothing! Tried softpedia, nothing.
Not enough to support you're board.
Sorry, but it may be a good idea to find a board that will handel you're parts.
I followed the suggestion of changing the BIOS configuration to the recovery mode, however one thing was missing - it required a startup disk and I didn't have one. I then changed the BIOS configuration to the config (pins 2 & 3) mode, booted up and went to the BIOS/CMOS setup and a new menu tab appeared called "maintenance". I went to the advance tab and selected USB configuration and, instead of a blank screen, there appeared a selection for USB support and it showed disabled. I changed the setting to enabled and three more lines of information regarding USB came up, but required not further changes. I went to F10 and saved and exited and I now have me USB capability back.
Past experiences with different models of Asus of this type of problem indicates BIOS problem. I have not come across the same symptoms with ECS, Intel, MSI, Gigabyte or others but once in a Samsung. The beeping sound is actually up down (like old ambulance siren).
I have tried some correctives measures with varying results:
1. Clean the motherboard with a strong solvent, hot air dry with particular attention to the BIOS chip;
2. Resolder the bottom side of the motherboard particularly the chip holder of the BIOS; and/or
3. Flash the BIOS chip using an identical motherboard or an EPROM programmer.
If all else fails, am afraid you have to replace your motherboard. Good luck and pls post back how things turn up or if you need further information. Kind regards.
Biostar M5SIB is Socket7 motherboard and can support maximum upto AMD K6-III 500MHz (83MHz*6) - with patched BIOS. You can download BIOS Patcher at:
or use another already patched bios:
Intel Pentium III has Slot1 or Socket370 CPU-connector and you can`t use it at your Socket7 (M5SIB) motherboard.
