:?: This new board Tyan 2644n is dead. I flashed the BIOS with correct download and later. not then it wouldn't start ... nothing.. no video ..beep or anything. I traded the chips (running dual 1800's) video card nothing. All I get is the monitors little "you have no video" pic. Now I think this must be the BIOS because of the flash but I have had the same symptoms intermittently for weeks now..usually I can reboot a few times or turn it off for a bit and im back up and going. Any ideas please please do tell Im ready to send it swimming...Thanks

If it works intermittently, I don't think it's the BIOS.

If it's new, RMA it.

Just as a side note - If you're having problems with your motherboard, you might not want to flash until you resolve them.
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

Make sure that you have strong enough power supply - it's VERY power hungry with dual CPUs - is that board for dual AMDs? 350W or even more might be required then.

Yes the power is an issuse I resolved in the first week, went from 350w to 500w. I bought it 5 months ago and suppose I will send it back to TYAN.
