Roo got a friend have the same MB sounds a bad flash or cmos chip died

looks if its a 8pin and socketed

you can hot flash it by booting a working system (same MB) in dos and have your flasher and file ready to flash (note no drives hooked up , just basic's to boot floppy or usb)

then poop out cmos chip and note where the notch is for put a good chip in socket same way then run you flash program

if sucessful then power down and remove and replace frinds chip and take your home
