one his bios is three revs old the newest bios is f8 for the 1.3 and 1.0 rev mb. before I flash the bios I would see if it a dirty card or dirt in the pci slot. turn your pc off..and unplug it from the wall...find a good thick paper towel that wont fall apart and some ispro alcohol. dampen the cloth and wipe the gold contacts on the video card. let them dry then take a number 2 pencil eraser and lightly run on the gold contacts to see if there a coating issue. in the pci slot use a flash light look for bent pins and foam from the mb packaging or some hair. take the town and lightly clean the contacts. blowing out the pci slot too with some canned air. put the card back in and see if speed changes. if there is non try making sure you have the newest amd mb chipset drivers installed.
Thank You frens for ur replies.
Finished cleaning my setup thoroughly but I dont wanna do Bios update unless i have to, its risky for the uninitiated as ive been told, so id like to do a Factory reset on my mobo , but i see no such option in Bios.
how to go about it ? ........ tried taking out the small round battery in mobo but im not sure if that does the trick.
