k7vta3 rev3.1 bios n/a

well, i bought a ecs k7vta3 rev3.1 mb, and it seems like it came with a non programmed bios. bios for this mainboard are not available on site (only for 3.0x versions). i've tried all 3.0x but none of it worked. i'm trying not to waste a lot of time sending the mainboard back to the store. so if any of you has a rev3.1 bios please send it to me.

Newbe here. I've tried to get and upgrade BIOS for my Inspiron 3500 but can't find any aftermarket suppliers who produce one. I have the latest that Dell offers. I've "hacked" quite a bit of this machine (Replacing the Pii 300 with a a Piii 650 for starters) that Dell says is not possible but the bios doesn't support Intels SpeedStep and advanced power management.

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.

Hotflash of MSI bios in ABIT MB unsuccessful so!

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 ...
