  1. I have problem ... the problem started when I was unable to boot from CD (it boots but after makeing inspecting in the begining the black screen appears without any changes) ... I updated the BIOS of my ASROCK P4V800 from version 1.40 to 1.60 ( From DOS) AND THE UPDAE GAVE ME AN ERROR MESSAGE THAT IT WASN'T SUCCESS. BUT THE BIOS VERSION BECAME 1.60 .THEN i TRIED TO DOWNGRADE THE BIOSE TO THE REVIOUS VERSION AND ALSO GAVE ME ANOTHER ERROR MESSAGE. THEN i CLEARD THE CMOS ,AFTER THAT THE MAIN PROBLEM WAS FIXED AND I BOOTED AND INSTALLED WINDWS BUT ANOTHER BROBLEM APPEARS :
    Once I try to turn my PC on Or restart it the following message appears to me (appears afer make chack on the CPU speed and the BIOS version) :

    Mac address are invalid in both APC and Flash
    pres F1 to Resume

    but nothing change .. I cleard the CMOS and set the default settings but also this dosen't solve the problem.

    Have you tried reflashing it to the new version again and have you checked the manufacturers site for tech support on it.....possibly sent a note to their tech support?
