Hi, I have a PCChips M810 DLU V5.2A, It's the same board as the K7SOM+. The problem is that it doesn't support any widescreen resolution and it keeps reporting the same VBIOS version after upgrading with any BIOS image.
Tried the original BIOS saved from the onboard ROM, the one from the PCChips website, other from the download section in this website (030807s.rom), the BIOS for the K7SOM+ 5.2 and they all kept reporting the same 1.15.11 version.

I'm using the recommended drivers from the SiS website, XP SP3 and nothing seems to work.
I'm testing right now with a Viewsonic 19" 1440x900 monitor and would like to be able to use 1440x900 and 1600x900 resolutions.

Driver version: 3.73

Since you have a SiS730 chip I suggest you try the correct v2.09 driver set for that chip instead of the 3.73 for the wrong series.

630_209_winxp.zip is the filename once you find the correct download page at the SiS website.

M810 = SIS 730
M810D = SIS 740

Does the flash program report a successful Bios flash?
Did you try to uninstall the current drivers and to reinstall them after reboot?
