Hey all,

After extensive research on these forums I have decided to post my problem as I have not found a clear answer yet. After reading that my Sony Vaio with a p4s533vl mobo would be fine to upgrade with the p4s533vm upgrade, I do so. Computer reboots, I enter bios put everything to default, load again, and I get "Floppy disk(s) fail (C0)". Apparently i cannot get to my old bios, but i have saved it on my boot disk, and i have taken out the battery and reset settings. It reset the time and all, but it did not reset the bios.....which is what is wrong in the first place. I checked all settings again, made sure that floppy checking was enabled, and it was first in line to boot. I would try to short the chip, but I do not know how to find the right two pins (highest addressed ones from what i read). My chip is integrated so i cannot reprogam or "hot swap" it. I am really running out of options here, and the last thing i wanna hear is that i have to replace my mobo. Just when i got GTR to work too........

edit: I forgot to tell you that my cd drives are detected, so if there is anyway to use those, please share.
