Ok, I just updated my bios on my A7V333 motherboard from version 1007 to 1015 and now my computer refuses to boot beyond the point where my XP should load. I tried installing earlier versions of the bios (1012-1014) and still no change. Unfortunately I don't have a backup of my 1007 version to reinstall. Anyone have a suggestion on what to do?
Try resetting the cmos by moving the jumper over to the clear pins with the power disconnected from the board then put the jumper back to the run position and reconnect power and try and boot. then make sure you go into bios on that boot and make all the proper settings
Also, after you upgrade your BIOS, you are supposed to go into the BIOS and "Load Default Settings". If you did that (or even if you didin't) your BIOS settings for your CPU may not be correct now. Try and set them for your CPU.
Actually it wasn't the bios as the problem as I had first suspected. It appears (as I keep forgetting) that for some odd reason any time I change anything in the BIOS (ie loading default setting) the specific setting for my hard drive as change, (ie. sectors, etc.) this causes my computer not to boot, adn I have to input the values in manually. Ya'd think after a dozen or so time I would remember this simple fact... lack of sleep.. yeah that's what I will blame it on
Thanks to those that gave me advice.. but as you can see it was my own fault for not checking.
At least it was an easy fix. Can't remember everything all the time.
