Updating escd nvram protected college graduate dating site
so either the little jumper on the board or remove the motherboard battery for a while to let it discharge - merely a slightly 'less drastic' step - which removes the possibility of a bios flash going 'wrong' , if the bios itself has got corrupted, you'll probably still need a flash, but trying this first shouldn't harm .. But the reason I have mentioned BIOS (and not CMOS) is because during updating ESCD data in CMOS some part of the BIOS chip is also being changed, that's why BIOS chip should be "write-enabled" in BIOS (or by jumper on the MB)...If that BIOS chip is somehow damaged (lost chip manufacturer's 2 ID bytes, for example), MB will hung on boot for long time...An administrator able to enter the administrator password may then alter the contents of the protected memory, changing the ownership tag. The ownership tag may identify an individual person or business entity who is the owner of the computer system, or it may identify a section or group within a company which is the currently authorized custodian of the computer system.The ownership tag is preferably stored in a region of memory not accessible to a typical user, but accessible to an administrator aware of the administrator password. Again, the format in which the tag is displayed is selected by the authorized administrator, based in part on the amount of memory allocated for this purpose. 2, a sector partitioning structure 200 of the flash ROM 78 in the disclosed embodiment is shown.Hey I'm picking up the lingo already Could the job be done safely on a 'patchy' dial up link or is it possible to D/L and save onto a disk as a complete file and then flash from within the PC Do you think the Bios programs could be corrupt? I'm not too clever with computers and this one is certainly beyond my experience!Any guidance as to what might be wrong and how to cure this problem would be much appreciated Cheers Guys Dave there are a couple of varients of that board , and i think the last time i looked they were up to version 18 of the bios ,,,check your version no on the splash screen , if u have an early no , you have to flash to a later , then the final.
I have an AMD Athlone XP2000 running on an Asus A7V333 M/board with Win 2000 Pro.
there are a couple of ways of doing the flash ,one of them is to press a key on startup , the other way (which ppl will dislike) but has worked for me , is the ASUS UPDATE , that runs thru windows , this checks your version , allows u to save the orig ,,,then d/load the new one , save it and then flash it.
please reply with your bios version no ,(on startup screen ) ,,,,,not the asus logo screen , and i will post u a link. BIOS software tries to update ESCD data, but can't because BIOS is either write-protected or somehow corrupted...
alan Hi Alan, Thanks for your reply Unable to read the version No. If all else fails, does 'bios rom socketed' mean that I can simply unplug the chip and buy a programmed replacement rather than a complete mobo?
Cheers Dave I would say it is problem with BIOS chip...
Cheers Dave you should be able to press pause , as the screen flashes , alternatively in "asusupdate) on cd rom / from site ) it will tell u your version NO. yours (like mine was) is a funny board and has not got the std bios , it is a 4 sided device ,,,,not very common.
