I tried to find a better board today but I wasn't able to find anything at all locally unfortunately. I could probably order something (and I might) but I don't mind altering the board or processor. I got them really cheap and it's not a critical system to me :). I have a bit of experience with elec...

BIOS ID: 03/28/2001-8363A-686B-6A6LMD4FC-00 You should be able to find: 11/12/2001-8363A-686B-6A6LMD4FC-00 from the manufacturer's website (or newer). I found the page for bios updates for this board on the DFI site earlier but a link to download the file was not available for some reason for me. I...

Note: to transform a 0 into a 1, all you need is to cover the contact with a piece of tape. [0 = closed circuit = connected; 1 = open circuit = no contact] Note2: it's impossible to transform a 1 into a 0, because the connection is internally open. Nothing to do there. Wouldn't this be the opposite...

I have the same mobo and have had many problems keeping XP running on it for any length of time (a week at best then various crashes). So many in fact that it is now running 98 SE instead of XP with no problems (it has a Geforce2 MX 200 running great under 98 SE). Redhat 8 works great with it too. I...

The card looks almost like this: http://www.kikumaru.com/pc/s370tos1/s370tos1_f.jpg (pic url: http://www.kikumaru.com/pc/s370tos1/ ) It has the same layout of components and etching (gold board though) but some components are slightly different (not present) although the spaces for them do exist (th...

a) You might have an ordinary PPGA-Slot1 converter... you'll need an FCPGA-Slot1 converter. The converter came with the processor and I'm pretty sure the PC shop said that they had tested the processor with this board... I'm not too sure about the specs on the converter board or where to start look...

1 Gig Celeron on BX-20??

Hi all, I'm not if this is possible... but I'm trying to put a 1 Gig Celeron (socket 370 in a slot 1 card) (1000/128/100/1.75V) processor into a Abit BX-20 motherboard. The motherboard does work (tested with a p2 400). The motherboard does not seem to have a 10 x multiplier by jumper settings (max 9...
