Replaced CMOS Battery - CD/DVD Burner not Recognized

XP Pro_SP3 BIOS Type and Version: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG I had one of those "OH MY GOD" moments when I realized my oldest desktop had the original factory installed CMOS battery (CR2032) on the mobo. Before replacing the battery, I was able to print out the CMOS settings so they could be quickly...

Re: Uniflash Website and Information

Thank you edwin. I don't post very often on any forum. The reason is simple. When I have a computer related problem it's usually too complex or just plain weird. I think this happens to any advanced or expert level computer user and/or builder. We have some very high quality test equipment. You migh...

Re: Uniflash Website and Information

I found Uniflash_v1.40 at its homepage: http://www.rainbow-software.org/uniflash/ I didn't know there was a newer version (1.47), until I logged into this forum. Here's the story.

Re: BIOS Display Settings Change Spontaneously

edwin, your reply is generous and thoughtful. Thank you! It won't resolve this problem, but I'll tell you what I did. I've been building and using computers for a very long time. My first one was purchased as a kit from a long gone electronics hobby magazine. I'm telling you this so you'll understan...

Re: BIOS Display Settings Change Spontaneously

Thanks for replying edwin. When I post on help forums I'm usually caught in a classic "catch22" situation. If you're an advanced or expert level user the problems you can't resolve yourself are usually not fixable. I'm always amazed when anyone can find a solution to highly complex problems on these...

BIOS Display Settings Change Spontaneously

This problem is a glitch that I can live with if there is no solution. I've been creating scripts for years, so I usually find work around solutions for most problems. This time, I'm out of ideas! I used a customized version of 98SE years ago, when I started a small business with few other guys. We ...

BIOS Keeps Changing Boot Order Priority

I'm posting in this "high-tech" area because if there is a solution to this problem it ain't going to be simple! I recently built a desktop with a Gigabyte mobo. I have several USB and USB + eSATA external hard drives. The SATA internal drives consist of two in a RAID 0 configuration. There is only ...
