For all those who are going to flash their motherboard don't use winflash (windows) because it will not work well!Originally posted by: Zeppelin Heaven
I flashed my 775Dual-VSTA BIOS to 3.19a through Winflasher 4.22.
My ATI HD 4890 is working better, but now I have the bad CMOS checksum problem!
I change the BIOS settings, but it never saves them.
Try the latest bios from PC Treiber for your board 2.17a.Originally posted by: ramstein
btw, my Sapphire HD3870 PCI-e is working, not as good as I would like but it is working. it has a very difficult time with corruption with most Catalyst driver versions. I can't do anything more with it but hold on till the next major upgrad ein a few months..
Whatever went bad this ASRock 4CoreDual Rev 2 motherboard (bios 2.10) still has a problem. But at least it works with occaisional BSOD's. But it works good enough for a while longer..
Next time I will do what I always did before this and will go with a higher end ASUS motherboard and a decent video card. I stil say the Radeon 2900 pro beat the snot out of the HD3870 as far as veo graphics go and had better performance. Period.
using WinXP. Have also used Win7 on it with Dual boot, but not recently.
Let?s hope soon.Originally posted by: Hlafordlaes
Thanks for the resurrection. Still happily using my 4CoreDual-VSTA. Given the dated nature of this chipset and VIA's exit from the chipset business, I wonder how long it will still be before they agree to release the chipset datasheets (so we can get on with tweaking some of those more arcane BIOS settings).
Sites like Crucial.com will not list 2x2GB sticks for these boards since on release they did not support more than 2GB total (2x1GB). However, if you search for 2x2GB DDR2 on the site and choose sticks that are rated for 1.8v, they should work (example). Make sure you have updated your BIOS to a version that supports 2x2GB before installing.Originally posted by: blueslinky
Can someone advise me on a hopefully easy request. I am running a Asrock 4CoreDual-SATA2 but only with x2 1g sticks of Ram. Vista is running incredibly slow and I believe I need to upgrade to to x2 2gig sticks of Ram. The issue is I cannot seem to find any.. Can anyone point me the right direction please?
