Lucky I tested with my current athlon, cos' I'd put the Heatsink on the wrong way and only 2/3rds of the chip were in contact!!
A double thanks!!!

Thanks to you and your brother!! I'll buy you both a drink if i'm up that way!
What program did he put on the chip, is it the 830CF bios program?? Just asking in case I need to do anything else apart from shove it in my motherboard, and buy a processor.
Thanks again. :D

Hi, any news on the bloody bios chip?? That motherboard has caused me and so many others (local computer repair companies) so much bloody trouble! Maybe it should be locked away where it can't cost anyone any more money!

I was lukcy, there was a boot from AGP card option in my bios, bu the other weren't the setting did nothi...

I think the flash is the only option. It'll be a bugger to swap my processor etc... over to test it again. Don;t wanna end up wasting more of my kit!
I'm based in Cornwall, UK do you know of anyone who could/would flash my chip for me? Would pay between 5-10 quid if I needed to!

I then re-flashed the bios wi...
