I have an ABit NF7-S v2 motherboard. I wanted to flash the BIOS to see if it would hopefully settle my instability problems a little with my overclocking. I used ABits flashmenu and didn't use the once click live update, I sought out the correct BIOS and then used update from file. It said it flashed successfully and upon restart....nothin.....I've cleared the cmos, and still nothin, I haven't tried leaving the battery out for a long period of time, but I know BIOS flashes are sensitive so my main concern is if I've now completely fux'd this board.
I downloaded my BIOS from here:
and downloaded the top one. Says for NF7-S 28 and in the readme file says it's for NF7, NF7-S, and NF7-M. Any advice would be great, thanks
EDIT: I found out that the revision I downloaded was for revision 1 of the NF7-S boards, and not for NF7-S v2 like I have.....I'm now fully assuming the board is useless. Can anyone say otherwise?
EDIT 2: Upon examining the ABit forums, apparently there's been quite a few people to flash with the wrong revision. ABit is pissing me off. The file was under their latest downloads and said for NF7-S , they only give you warnings if you look at the revision 2 stuff and say 'MAKE SURE YOU DONT NEED 1.0' WHY THE HELL don't they have the warning on revision 1 saying 'this is for revision 1, dont use this if you have 2. So yeah basically I just ordered a new fuxing BIOS chip from excaliburpc should be here thursday........bah fuxing computers
