vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

I took a look at my motherboard last night, and tried to pull the chip out, but it wouldn't move. Either way, it doesn't matter in my case because I don't have replacement chip to use anyway. So, in trying to move on with the first advice you gave me... since my motherboard doesn't have an ISA slot,...

vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

Thanks for the update edwin! I'm no expert when it comes to motherboards, so my earlier comment was based on what the guy at the computer store told me this morning. Just as a point of interest... when I look at the picture you provided, I don't seem to recall that my motherboard has that black plas...

vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

More bad news... I visited a computer service center this morning and they advised my motherboard doesn't have an ISA slot to attempt the solution you pointed me to in the FAQ section of your site. Please make my day by telling me there are other methods (using slots such as PCI or AGP, or perhaps u...

vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

When I open the tower case, and look at the motherboard, I see the following in big letters in the center of the board right beside the chip: AOpen MX46-533V ... so I hope I've been using/providing the correct information all along. Is there more detail I need to accurately determine which board I h...

vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

I completed the bios upgrade using AwardFlash, however, when the bios application prompted me to hit 'F1' to restart the system, my system did not reboot - nor will it boot at all now. Is there something more I need to do to complete the process and allow the PC to boot (perhaps a physical change on...

vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

cp / edwin: Thanks to you both for the advice to date. Sadly, I still can't get 1440x900 to be an option available to me. I used the link edwin provided in the last posting to obtain the new driver zip file. After extracting the files contained within, I proceeded to update the driver to version 6.1...

vbios of 2.28.00 for AOpen MX46-533V board with SiS651 chip

Sorry to bother you again, but I don't know what 'download' page you're refering to. I've gone to the 'BIOS Updates' tab on this site, and searched under both 'ACER' and 'AOpen', but could not find anything relating to the 'MX46-533V' motherboard. Could I please ask you to give me more specific dire...

My Specs: Motherboard = AOpen MX46-533V Video Chipset = SiS 651 Monitor = brand new HP W1907 I'm trying to make use of the 1440X900 max resolution the monitor offers, but the maximum resolution my PC currently offers me is 1280 x 1024. I have updated the video drivers from the SiS website to v3.73, ...
