  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. overclocking didnt show? how do you know you overclocked it then?

    so you are saying,,,

    before flash.. lockups

    after flash lockups and no Ethernet?

    sounds like a problem did you try one of the troubleshooting checklists available here?

    have you tried monitoring any of the temps to see if something is overheating?
    motherboard chipset or whatever?
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. did you reload your default settings in bios then
    reset all your custom settings

    after flashing the bios?

    if yes.. try flashing it again.

    Hi,

    I have the same motherboard and I would like to explain the situation:

    I have the same problem of this topic, sometimes the system freezes or resets. I dont know if it was after the update BIOS to:

    http://file.abit.com.tw/pub/download/bios/fpin9sli//m624b16.zip

    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?

  9. havent updated, but i already found to problem. one stick of RAM was faulty. removing it made the computer worked without crashing. although there are occasional freezes
  10. Good for you, man. Cause' to me I had already to change the RAM memory to another stick NEW, and the resets after the Windows finish to start continues.

    Now I'm trying to install Windows 7 version. I don't know, maybe the hardware manager is more than better Windows XP and it may help me.

    dont know if this helps, but after replacing my RAMs, my comp still crashed. I found out that the RAMs were undervolted and increased voltage in the BIOS. After that, the computer ran smoothly.
  12. I did install a Windows 7 version and my PC does not freeze or reboot anymore. I cannot explain why.
