My final post before I buy a new MOBO. (The BIOS is integrated on the board, cannot be replaced)
Did a BIOS flash on an ASUS MOBO, an Asus tech recomended I use the Windows Flash utility. Ran program, Flashed BIOS. Got an error, program then refused to run. Rebooted system, Disk Boot failure, loaded defaults in CMOS and saved. PC Booted, ran perfect. BIOS appeared updated. Did a couple test reboots, ran fine.
Woke up today, turned on PC, just beeped at me. Would NOT boot. After clearing CMOS I now get a 3 second beep, followed by a 2 second pause, rinse and repeat. NO VIDEO.
Removed all items, reseated Ram and CPU. Same Beeps. I was under the impression a failed Flash yielded nothing, yet the PC functioned afterwards. This is an Asus MOBO with an AWARD BIOS.
If I can't get any suggestions I'll purchase a new MOBO for this 1.8ghz P4 CPU.
Any last ideas?
