A8M2N-LA version 3.07 bios needed

That sounds like the video card or chipset is powering up with horizontal or vertical scan rates that are outside your monitor's range. If so, then that's very strange behaviour because AFAIK the default power-up mode is text mode 3. IME the usual resolution is 640x350 at a refresh rate of 70Hz or l...

A8M2N-LA version 3.07 bios needed

Could the "blank" screen be caused by the BIOS trying to display a non-existent OEM logo ???

Installation of USB ports in 1996 Computer

I can't see anything wrong with your UVCView output. Although it's a different chipset, the output looks similar to that produced by my SiS 7002 host controller. On my Win98SE box, UVCView displays the properties of my DSL modem's USB port even though I haven't installed its drivers, so the fact tha...

Installation of USB ports in 1996 Computer

Just to set the record straight, the Maximus Decim driver set appear to contain USB1.1 driver files from Windows 98SE and USB2.0 drivers from Win ME. In any case, they are all Microsoft files, not third party offerings. One advantage of installing the NUSB drivers is that only one driver is required...

Installation of USB ports in 1996 Computer

Sorry, I gave you the wrong file name for UVCView. You can get it here: ftp://ftp.efo.ru/pub/ftdichip/Utilities/UVCView.x86.exe See if it will find your EHCI USB2.0 host controller. Maybe your flash drive has attached itself to the EHCI host rather than to the UHCI, which may explain why Usbview did...

AWARD BIOS IDs - what the "C" means

According to this DTK page ... http://www.dtk.com.tw/download/bios.html ... the "C" after the chipset ID in an Award BIOS ID string "is the acronym of Copyright". <quote> 01/09/96-I430VX-2A59GG39C-00 BIOS ID is "2A59GG39". The end of "C" is the acronym of "Copyright". <end quote> Maybe the following...

If you can't get VIA's drivers to work, then try the Maximus Decim Native USB driver set. They support USB 2.0 controllers and peripherals for Win98SE. http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/win98se-usb-mass-storage-drivers.php Note that VIA's ...

exact chip type for BIOS Savior ?

The "T" in the part number designates the "Boot Block Location", in this case "Top Boot Block". That appears to be the only option, ie there appears to be no mention of a boot block at any other location. - Pm49FL002: 16 Kbyte top Boot Block - Pm49FL004: 64 Kbyte top Boot Block This is the datasheet...

Modify ASUS A7N8X-X bios?

I use a utility called WPCRSET to configure selected PCI registers automatically at bootup. I'm running Win98SE, so I can't tell you if it will work under any other OS. You can use WPCREDIT to test any proposed changes before applying them with WPCRSET. You can obtain the above files here: ftp://ftp...
