new official BIOS 04/06/2006

Recommended Posts

I saw them last night and now I went and downloaded them and realised I got the 11/14s, the 4/6s must have been pulled?

 

I was using the 6/23/05 BIOS, and when I upgraded to the 11/14/05 BIOS (thought i was getting 4/6/06 b/c i re-dled the file to try out winflash and just chose the first one that wasnt Diamond Flash) my MAC address changed, which I found strange.

Unfortunately this new BIOS did nothing for the imfamous warm boot scenario. Attempt to power back up after normal power down and you get the blinking LED loop of fun. Why can't they just fix this ridiculous standby power draw and be done with it. :confused:

 

i never had that issue until now

are u sure that is not something wrong with your power source?

or something else?

It is the amperage draw by the board, myself and many many others have the same issue.

First, sorry to hear about your problems. I built a system using the Seasonic S-12 5ooW last year when the Ultra-D and SLI first came out. I had no problems overclocking a 3200+ to 2.6ghz rock stable. Maybe you should try an older bios? The newer bioses are really only for the dual core chips I believe.

 

Second, I can totally relate to your issues. I thought I was eventually going to waste away the rocker arm on my ps from so much switching. But it was all fixed after this update.

 

Hope you get your problems resolved. Good luck!

I saw in the DFI site the new BIOS NF4ED406 for download. Then I made it... picked a diskette and ran the Diamond Flash Image. Booted up the system with the diskette, and then the installation completes without any error... then the flash bios program asked to press F1 for the System Reset, and the system simply stopped. I waited for about 10 min and pressed the Turn Off button, and the system didn't started. So I tried to make the "Safe Boot" and didn't worked, so I made the "clear CMOS" and it didn't solve the problem either. The Motherboard turns on but don't boot up. So I searched for the bios again in the site and for my surprise it wasn't there... After I entered again and it was there. What was the problem? Why the BIOS simply wasn't in the site that time, and after I saw it there? The one that I installed was having problems and the DFI changed and uploaded the correct after? I sent an e-mail to the tech support and it returned to this message:

Now my motherboard isn't booting and I don't know how to solve it....

What can I do?

There`s something strange about the ampere draw at standby with the dfi boards, i had some cold boot problems, and after a while my standby rail actually died (!) Is it because the RAM are fed 3.3V at standby? Do anyone know anything about this?

The question is why they removed the info about the new bios? if they removed the links then there might be something wrong with those bioses....

 

any info?

I DO agree with you.

 

For me, it has solved the color problems with DFI Logo. Unfortunately, with that bios, If I turn off the system, turn off the nobreak, then, start them again, first attempt of boot is unsuccessfull. So, I have to hold the power buttom down, turn off the system and start it again to boot normally. That doesn't happen with the 11/14 Bios. Notice: I do have cleared the CMOS for 30~60s... trying to boot up with default settings.

 

I have flashed it again and now I'm using the 11/14 bios. Sincerely, in cases like that, DFI should put a NOTE in its page, warning the ones who have downloaded and upgraded the bios about the reasons for having removed the latest bios.
