Flash GA-7VTX --> No video

I flash the bios of a Gigabyte GA-7VTX motherboard. I restart de computer, the dual-bios system inform me that the main bios is diferent to the backup bios. I restart de computer... Blank screen for ever !!!! I can´t belive it. Wat´s the problem? The flash was ok because the first reboot was ok. Why next boots don´t work? Why Dual-Bios not work?

Thanks a lot

AST Premmia P/133 POST Failure

My AST Premmia GX p/133 will not get past early POST failure. I hear 2 long beeps and 3 short beeps; no video ever gets initialized...the machine simply hangs after the POST failure.

The most detail I've received from the beeps is system board failure. I've pulled every card, checked RAM, etc but I do not know how to troubleshoot from here. The only visual oddity is the BIOS battery has oozed a bit of ...

Having Trouble upgrading sdram

HP Pavillion 7840
Trigem motherboard i810E
Processor front side bus speed 133/100/66MHz
Originally came with 2 64Meg/100MHz Dimms

I tried to replace the 64M dimms with a single 256M/133Mhz SDRAM from Kingston. The board will not recognize the ram.
Could a BIOS update possibly help in this situation and does the processor front side bus speed indicate that I should be able to run the 133MHz SDRAM???

Please, any help would be appreciated.
