cant get into bios after flash

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

i need a little help. i just tried flashing my bios (10/03/2005 came with board) with winflash to update them to 06/04/2006. everything went fine meaning i could boot to windows normally with no apparent problems. BUT i couldnt get into bios. every time i pressed delete all i got was a black screen with a flashing cursor. ive tried the same thing doing 10 min cmos clear and result was the same. i even tried other versions(29/03/2006 and one of the beta ver.) and no change. now after i flashed back to my original version i had no problems getting into bios. so thats how i left it for now hoping i would get some help here. my system is back to stock just like in sig with nforce and graphics drivers updated. thx.

 

p.s. im getting 4800 and ocz 600w gamer psu tomorrow so thats gonna change and it was the reason for the flash

You need the 623 bios or later for the dual core to be reconized. You can use tmods cd from bios factory here on forum. Also always clear cmos after a flash.

i did 30 sec cmos clear after each flash with same result. i didnt change my chip yet and was just wondering why i cant get any other version to work. if u think tmods cd method would be better thats what i shall do. thx for a quick reply.

ive tried tmods cd and 2 different bios with 10 min cmos reset and still am getting that black screen whenever i want to go into bios..... btw it does say cmos error loaded defaults and once it read something about the cpu not operating at correct speeds. again after flashing back to 10/03/2005 everything is fine.

any ideas???

Have you tried it with only one stick of ram in orange slot furthest from the cpu as the newer bios are not likeing your memory.

so i took a chance and opened my new chip(4800) put it in, flashed using tmods cd, did a 30 sec clear and still get that black screen instead of my bios menu. one thing that i ve noticed is that on the second boot screen after any flash im missing the "NVIDIA RAID IDE ROM BIOS 4.84". it happens every time i flash doesnt matter what bios. i only get that messege with the original bios. do u think i need a longer clear( i tried 8 hours)like 24hr. btw the new cpu works flawlessly even gets recognized by windows. after 3 days im ready to toss this board... :(
