Hey I know this is an old post, but landed here when looking for an original bios for this very board... I got to sorting out some trash tonight, but remembered that I have all these Mr-Bios Bios's that suit these old fx chipset dinosaurs... The board I have here is marked with big letters that say ...

Re: K7S741GXMG-6L - flashed ok but now shuts down automatica

thanks for info, I will check that .. so you recommend disabled the auto shutdown in BIOS due to temp. Yeah... Somewhere in your bios setup screen, you'll see a menu entry on the main setup screen that says something like "hardware monitoring" Just pop into that screen & see if the cpu shutdown tem...

No, afraid I never did. I went to a PC repair place who set the harddrive was most likely damaged. They said they could try to retrieve the info but it would cost a fortune. So instead I just had them install a new harddrive and reinstall the operating system. It was like getting it back fresh from...

Yes, that would be nice. Thanks. Just sent it to the email address you posted above... Do you know what format the case and motherboard are ? (Micro-ATX, NLX, whatever) Maybe it's better to find a replacement board if it continues to be unstable. I'm not familiar with anything other than the common...

Thanks Denniss, I checked that out, you must have sent me the wrong one though, it was the same checksum & file date as the 1st one... I flashed it to the chip, but still got the same error... However, when you'd said you put my original vga bios into this new bios with cbrom, I thought to myself, m...

Hey Denniss... The errors were related to either kernel32.dll errors, or another file I can't quite remember, I never bothered reading it after the 2nd bsod... & yeah I tried around 20 different sticks of ram in it, & in each case, altered the timings in the bios, although 10ns & 8ns are the only op...

Hey Denniss... I flashed the bios, put it in the board, & got one long - 3 short beeps... So I figured it worked, just has no onboard video now... Placed a pci vga card into a slot, & it fires up no problems, & now detects the K6-2/500 as a 500, not a 506, & the 550 as a 550, not a 531 like previous...

Bios sent by mail. Thanks for the trouble you've gone to Denniss, I'll await it's arrival, & post of how it works... I might add, the bios I posted from it above was on an AM29F002NT plcc chip, from the link edwin posted above, it seems that this board runs all different types of chips, which i'd b...

Found something in our Award Betabios collection: 01/18/2000-VP3-586B-SMC6-2A5LEF1BC-00 I'll take look at that one, put it on the chip that is, & see how it goes... Here's the original bios of it, dated 16th dec 98, plus a couple of other bios's I thought were either impossible or hard to find, wel...

Flytech A68 board..

I got given another truckload of PCs to wreck out a few weeks ago, & in amongst them was a Flytech book sized pc, or so it's called, that had a 200mhz IBM cpu in it, & no memory... I saw it had a VIA vp382c598 chipset & got to thinking that it should run 100 fsb... So after searching for the manual ...

Not sure what program you're using to flash the chip on your other board, If I'm not at home, & forced to do a hotflash, I start by trying it with a couple of different uniflash builds... Failing that, I dig around for an early 439TX chipset P1 board... Don't know why, but for some reason they seem ...

Have you tried clearing the cmos using the jumper... I had a problem once where my computers clock was not advancing in time whilst the computer was off, eg: if switched off at 2am, then back on at 8am, the time would still show 2am... The battery had 3.12volts so it was OK... I cleared the cmos & r...

Manual Scans.

Hello lads... I was given the best part of a truck load of old systems to wreck out over the weekend, & in amongst the units was a box with a brand new Soyo 4SA W2/W5 486 motherboard, complete with manual... Also, in opening another old unit up I found the manual for the board sitting inside the cas...
