  1. Warning cpu has been changed. Please re-enter cpu settings in the comos setup and remember to save before quitting. I go into bios and do the settings but when I hit f10 to save it won't let me out?? ???

    I got the message taken care of. I also used another keyboard but no go. I need to update bios bad. Does anyone know the correct procedures for flashing the Abit AG8-V mobod? Please help if you do. I have tried from their directions but it won't work.

    what Kind of keyboard? I have found cheapo PS\2 keyboards to be more reliable for installs than USB ones. if you dont know what you are doing yuo can end up with a dead mobo. your failed efforts to flash your bios may be the reason you are having problems trying to change settings.

    It was not the mobod's fault but mine. I was in too much of a hurry as I had other things I had to do and did not pay close enough attention to details. It was hard to read some of the tiny writing on the directions. I got it with no problem last night about 3am. after reading carefully.
