EDIT: Apologies for title, but this is a mobo issue Specs: AMD Athlon XP 64 3200+ ASUS A8N-E Former video card: Gigabyte GeForce 6600 GT Test card: Gigabyte GeFroce 7300 GT New card: XFX GeForce 8600 GT Right, rather long story to get into. My computer's been regularly freezing and forcing hard reboots (video buffer stops refreshing, sound loops) for a while. It would work fine every so often. I attributed this to heat. Two days ago computer froze. Upon a hard reboot the screen was garbled - displayed gibberish on the BIOS boot screen. You could kind of make out the Energy Star logo but all text was garbled with vertical lines streaking the screen. So I tested this again with the 7300gt I pulled out of another comp. The computer booted up fine. I stuck the 6600 into said other comp and display was garbled. Video card was the issue, I got a new card. Today I got the new card (8600gt) and put it in. I booted up into PnP VGA and started downloading the new drivers. Right after I finished the download the comp froze. Hard reboot got me into a strange POST error which I found out was this: I looked into it and I figure I need a new BIOS to support the new card, right? Well, strange thing happened when I put the 7300gt into my comp to download the tools to flash the BIOS. I get the same POST with the old card, so I think the BIOS is corrupted. So I'm looking to automatically flash the BIOS, without a floppy disk drive and with no video. If I recall correctly my BIOS boot order defaults to floppy->cd->HD and I don't have a floppy drive. Are there any utilities that can be burnt to CD that automatically flash the BIOS without any input on my part? And of course if flashing the BIOS doesn't work I'm in for a motherboard replacement, but I'd like to avoid that.
