First, I'll describe the situation.
Starting maybe a couple weeks ago, compy began locking and rebooting itself. Because this happened after windows loaded, generally, I assumed that the trouble had something to do with my install. In the past couple days the machine would reboot and lock immediately. Now, I don't even make the post screen.
I have disconnected everything from the board and ran through the protocols regarding reseting the CMOS and also flashing the BIOS. I have reset the BIOS using the jumper and Tmod's BIOS utility CD more times than I can count and it still hangs before post. I'm not even receiving correct post codes.
Because I know the RAM and CPU are good I'm only down to one option.
Can a BIOS chip fail to the point where flashing the thing has no effect? As I said I have flashed it many times and there seems to be no change. I figure I should ask before I scrap the thing.
I assume the board is borked. The CFX3200 has a poor track record and I've really been running on borrowed time while it worked.
