Bios

edited : choosing a bios

the board I have the PH5(0705C) v1.4 manufactured by MEC (gone) is practically identical to the Abit PH5 board so I am fairly confident inclusive of my ignorance of this computer , that the ph5e0.exe is an available update that is possibly suitable at this stage . still , I am trying to use a faulty...

I think I should be trying awdflashph5e0 at the prompt but the power led is red all the time and I do not know why yet . no worries now , I...

IR jumper

seeing as I posted this and did not make much sense with it I thought I could tidy it up a wee bit . I posted : what is IR for on the PH5 v1.4 board ? well I was asking about the IR pins on the motherboard and I guess now they are for a jumper to set the InfaRed capability of the motherboard . How I...

Why would the Power LED stay on from boot up then an error message " Error Loading OS " and that's as far as I can get now . I did get as far as using Windows NT . I'm going searching..... I'm sure all the cables are ok and the jumpers but I'm not sure what the IR jumper is for . I'm thinking InfaRe...
