ECS K7S5A Problems

  hullguy28 11:32 24 May 08

Hi i have an ecs k7s5a motherboard version 1.0 and managed to corrupt the bios when using flash i managed to purchase a replacement bios but when i switch on the pc it boots up but there is no display i have tried several spare graphic acrds and still the same fault. I was advised i could run a duron 1800 on this board as long as the bios was upto date now the person i got the bios off said they were all updated and new. Has anyone got any idea what could be going wrong as before i corrupted the original bios it worked fine with an athlon 1.0 ghz cpu but would not work with the duron 1800 if i installed the duron the cpu fan kept stopping and starting but had no other life.

When i now switch the pc on with the duron there is no beeps and the cpu fan spins at the correct speed but thats as far as i get any advice would be much appreciated.

If i remember right from when i had this Mobo,i was using a Duron 1200 cpu,and needed to flash the bios to use XP cpus,i think i flashed to V1.0A
it was a long time ago now but after that it did work and i installed an XP1800 cpu with no problems.As i said it was some years ago now the board was still pretty new back then.
