amazing, I can't find out a thing about this board either. The model name looks like something from by defuncted company called Fordlian.

Thanks, but those options didn't work (as mentioned in the Bios notes), but the latest Bios fixes the problem so no worries.

Is it possible to hack the Bios to add support for larger ram modules, or will nothing make a 440LX chipset handle modules larger than 128mb? :)

Thanks, before I attempt, are there any force or other switches I should use when using Aflash? :)

hmm would I have any luck with Asus's Aflash utility then?

I suppose hot swapping into an Asus sp97-v wouldn't work since it uses a 1mbit chip rather than a 2mbit?

No, would that allow it to attempt to flash even if it doesn't recognise the chip?
Does Uniflash detect the 39SF020 chip on this Asus board correctly?
No, it doesn't detect it at all.

Possible to disable memory checking at boot-time?

Hi, as you'll know, some motherboards are dog slow at doing the ram checking at bootup time. Is it possible to hack the bios to prevent this from being performed? Waiting 2 minutes while it trawls like a turtle through hundreds of megabytes puts a huge dampener on a system's usefulness. Thanks for s...

What does /SN do? I used the most recent version of Uniflash, but it didn't detect the chip. Tekram motherboards aren't by Asus (are you thinking this?). I tried again with that switch, but Awdflash won't recognise the chip either. I suspect the Tekram board's chip isn't compatible with this motherb...

Flashed wrong Bios, hot swapping?

Hello. I've got a TEKRAM P6L40-A4 motherboard. I wanted to update the Bios. The manual said on it P6L40-A4X , so I ended up flashing P6LAX109.BIN instead of P6LA4109.BIN, and now it's dead. I've tried hot-swapping into an Asus A7V133-VM motherboard (it uses the SST39SF020A chip with the same pinout,...
