SP-586TB death-melody ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Here's a toff one!

I had (RIP?) for several years a computer with an SP-586TB motherboard / AMDK6II-200 processor. A couple of weeks ago, I was working on that computer, and suddenly the computer started to play a tune trough the MB speaker. I was really shocked, experience said to me that it could be only a virus - but there's no "entry point" in the whole 8 computer network (all floppies have cables detached ...

Hotflash of MSI bios in ABIT MB unsuccessful so far..help!

I tried to hotflash a MSI 645 Ultra bios chip in an ABIT IT7 Max 1.0 motherboard. I believe I read enough to do it right but Uniflash did not like to identify the MSI chip. Further I found it curious that all file sizes on the floppy were only showing half of what they should e.g. the biosfile of my AMI bios was 131 kbytes instead of 262 kbytes.

Some options of the Uniflash ...

I can't believe this. Bios password unknown... fixable?

Is there a fix for this at all? This was sent to my mother in law who said it worked fine once, but after that, it locks up every time it boots up. I tried to get into the bios to see why the floppy drive is set incorrectly, but could not get around or guess the password.
