Question about EliteGroup 741GX-M Motherboard
Hi, Though BIOS may be the issue, I would recommend that you also check the capacitors (small can) around the CPU area. Experience has taught me that they cause a lot of reboot and BSODs. Normally the top of the capacitors should be clean flat surface with an X or a Y mark. No blistering, no bulge, no brown oily stuff, just a dull shine. If BIOS is corrupt, you may want to consider flashing it with an update from the manufacturer's website. The usual precaution applies, make sure you don't loose power when performing a bios flash, all devices removed except for the barebone, availability of a bootable medium such as an FDD and a bootable diskette with the flashing software and bios update, setting bios to default on first boot. Hope this be of some help and give you an idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional info. Good luck and kind regards.
