I have an Asus an87x mobo with updated BIOS and i cleared the cmos and removed the Battery to test other cpu's
I had to UpDate the bios to support Sempron cpu's
now it wont post with same sempron CPU
i tried a XP2000 cpu it now shuts down before post NOTE xp2000 cpu may be Bad ?
Does removing the battery overnight and clearing the CMOS delete the UPDATED BIOS ?????
see my other post for more detail
any help is apreacited
you mean the great ASUS A7N8X, and no, updating the bios writes it into the BIOS ROM, by removing the battery it clears the CMOS, so no. Those boards are becoming rare, and the last seem to be going up lately so dont rule dead motherboard out.
