psychobob Posted October 10, 2004 Posted October 10, 2004 Okay...I was on here awhile back asking for help and came to the conclusion that if it isn't the bios chip the the board is just plain fubar'd. After much deliberation...or maybe the proper terms would be "f'ing with the bios chip every which way before I broke down bought an extraction tool," I got the chip out, and I'm getting ready to put in the new one ordered from badflash.com. Is there anything I need to know before I do this? I was told to clear out the cmos before and set things to load optimized defaults once I get it booted...but do I need to start the board up with cmos cleared or anything like that? Do I need to do anything funky like knocking on wood three times, spill salt and throw some over my shoulder, and say an incantation to the gods of the cyber-underworld??? Seriously, do I need to do ANYTHING special before and after I put this chip in? I'm going to be booting this with fairly simple periferals and components, beings how I already have most of my good shtuff in a backup PC.
