Hello all, I've come back to the forums in hopes you good people can help me out as you have numerous times before in my previous threads. I just upgraded my Bro's PC, installed the "Chaintech VNF4 Ultra VE Mobo," I installed an AMD 64 X2 4400+ CPU. I went to Chaintechs website to check for latest drivers/updates for the Mobo. They have a new BIOS update (date: 6/03/2005)that allows the Mobo to support AMD 64 X2 (Dual Core) CPU's. I installed Win XP Pro w/SP2, everything seems to be running fine. I am not sure if my CPU is being supported & recognized as a Dual Core Chip, so I decided to try & flash/update the BIOS. I D/L the BIOS update onto a floppy disk. I rebooted my PC, during the POST @ the bottom it states to hit "ATL+F2" to enter the AwardFlash Utility. I assume this is how one flashed/updates the BIOS. So did that, then it instructs me to place the floppy into the drive & hit ENTER, when I do, it takes me to an interface displaying the Award Flash Utility V8.57 & the following: "For NF-CK804-VN61F210C-00 DATE:02/03/2005 FLASH TYPE- FILE NAME TO PROGRAM: VN210603.BIN_" @ the bottom of the page it says..."message: Please wait!" but the message keeps flashing & nothing happens. I've left it alone for 30 mins & when I came back the same screen & message still there. Am I doing something wrong? I have flashed a BIOS on my Biostar Mobo which was located in the Bios setup page & went through smoothly. I assume something is wrong which is not allowing the BIOS to flash & install the latest BIOS update. I just want to make sure the BIOS is updated so that my AMD64 X2 CPU is supported & working fine. How does one check to make sure AMD 64 X2 Dual Core chips are running as Dual Core & are being recognized by the Mobos? Any help suggestions are greatly appreciated. I already emailed chaintech support, but they have yet to respond. They only seem to support Mobos through emails & not over the phone.
