Titel: Badflash to 1C3 beta on NEO4 Plat.
Beitrag von: johntheripper am 23. Januar 2006, 18:51:12
Hi Guys,


I\'ll tried to flash the 7125 1.B Neo4 Platinum fro, 1.0B to the 1C3 from Murdoc.


I used winflash and got the message that the flashing proces went ok.


I rebooted the computer and now the computer hangs with the message:


CMOS checksum error - Defaufts loaded

Warning! Now System is in Safe Mode. Please reset overlocking features in the Setup Menü.


press F1 to continue or DEL to enter the setup menu.

F1 and DEL do not work. What went wrong. I cleared the Cmos several times.

Should I order already a replacement bios Chip?



regards

Power supply plugs pull and touch the CMOS Reset Button?

Hello !!

Please tell me which checkboxes were enabled during flash ?
Are you using an USB Keyboard ? Try a PS/2 Keyboard instead and test if it works.
Try removing all PCI Cards from your system too.

Till now no one complained about this Bios Version, especially not the way you do.

Good Luck

I used the checkboxes as they were recommended in the Hw to for Winflash.

I used an USB keybord during the flash, but switched already to the PS/2 which makes no difference.

I took out also the PCI card as you suggested, also no difference.


This 1C3 is right for this board or what?


any other suggestions?

@johntheripper

You took hopefully the correct BIOS?

This was the file I used: W7125XMOD1C3


The computer shows W7125NMS V1.CB3 122305 14:27:59 XMOD by Murdok



can you make anything out of that?


regards again

Hello !

Yes, this seems to be the right file..... i do not have any clue why this went wrong on your system.  Does the system try to read from Floppy ? Where did you download the file ?

This is the right one!!  :]

I downloaded the file in this forum.

What I maybe did wrong that I pressed the CMOS reset switch with the power still on. Could that be an issue?


The conclusion so far is that it is the right file. How are my chances to recover from this?

I am very Sorry  :rolleyes:
but, jumpering the CMOS Reset Switch while system has power or Power Cable attached to your system will delete your Bios Chip. The chip must be rewritten, you can do this via Hotflash, but the safest way is to order a new Bioschip.

The warning sentence: \"Vor dem Jumpern immer Netzstecker ziehen\" means
\"Remove Power Cable from PSU before jumpering CMOS Reset Switch\"

But take it easy, you will never do this mistake again..... :)

Good Luck

Yeah,


sometimes you\'ll learn your lessons the hard way.   Anyhow I\'\' appreciate your help in this uncomfortble matter.


Any recommendations where I could order a chip in Germany, fast and cheap?

@John:

Wyh on earth would you want to buy a replacement chip?

As a CMOS clear was performed after flashing, you now have to reenter the values,
there\'s no need to shell out ~15 EUR for a Bios chip replacement.



That is basically it  8)

Hello Guys,


i just want to express my appreciation once more for the help you offered.


I was also impressed by the speed of the answers. I ordered lastnight the bios chip at the suggested company. Also that company was replying instantly my mail (at 21:00). Made the payment by paypal and the chip is on it\'s way.

Na OK, das habe ich in der Tat überlesen  :wall , da hat sich John dann leider in eine SNAFU-Situation gebracht.

@ johntheripper: Hope the replacement works well  :winke
