Exactly why did you flash the BIOS to a newer version? What was wrong that you needed to update the BIOS? If you were not having a problem, then flash it back to the BIOS you had and leave it alone. If you were having a problem, did you flash the correct BIOS for your board, and is it compatible with the revision of your board?
with the older BIOS, the computer usually hangs, then reset when booting up. Rebooting the computer usually gets through this problem. The other problem is that overclocking did not show. CPU-Z mainly.
temps fine. lockups when booting due to BIOS. I updated BIOS to get rid of the problem. Rebooting after system lockups usually works. It's a minor annoyance only. But after flashing BIOS, I have no lockup problem because that's what the update fixes, but the Ethernet is not detected at all.
did not look at troubleshooting checklists. where is it?
I didn't have that problem. I had that exact same motherboard. I was forced to flash the bios to get support for a newer CPU. My ethernet port still worked fine afterwards. Make sure the ethernet is enabled in the bios, and when you are in windows, scan for new hardware from control panel. If that don't work, buy a add in PCI NIC
Today, alwaws when I let the pc stopped, it will freeze, each 10 minutes more or less. Example: I'm using the PC, so, I get out front of PC... if I will stay away to 10~15 minutes the PC will freeze, but If I come back before the 10 minutes and make something (click button, enter, move the mouse) the PC does not freeze.
Another case is: almosts always when the Windows finish to start... it show the Screen Login and when I choose my User, after some seconds the PC reboot. There is sometimes that PC makes a "tic" on HD in the exactally moment the it reboot.
Somedays, the PC rebooting 5 or 6 times.. after, it be OK and I can work (but if you stop do work, it will freeze again).
The PC reboot just in time the Windows finish to start, after the LOGIN.
- Things that I did to try fix it:
- buy a ATX P4 SATELITE 400W REAL SATA-545K8;
- clean the memory and too change them to NEW memory;
- change the HardDisk
- install a new copy of Windows XP
ps: one time, I try to use live Linux and I see by once time the mouse freeze.
The once hardware that I do not change was my NVIDIA GF7200, but I clean the SLOT.
The problem that I told you there is since 1 year and I dont know what to do anymore. Someone can help me?
