The other method I would sometimes try if I were too lazy to pull the chip & use my programmer, was to use the flash program specifically made for the chip called 28F001.exe & or 28f001A.exe. I found them along with other flash programs on a sight that said they were for triton chipsets, ( from memo...

So we know he is trying to flash a 512kb { 4mb } file to a chip, maybe you should tell us what the numbers/letters say on the top of the chip your trying to program. I'ts not unusual for the same model board to have either a 256k or a 512k chip. I've seen a lot of MoBo sights host upgrades stating t...

I was of the opinion that the comcrap & HP computers could be flashed by switching the switch 1 to on & the bios update on the floppy left in the drive, it just ran without the graphics & beeped so many times when the flash was done.

I think the question really is where did you get the ver 1.3 MS6161 BIOS from? I just looked under the downloads section of the Australian MSI web site and could only find latest ver 1.2. Maybe a ver 1.3 was at one stage available from MSI and withdrawn by MSI because of a problem MSI was having wi...
