... well surprisingly I think it worked.
My motherboard is a ECS PT800-CE-A, 3.2ghz P4 processor and 2 512 sticks of mushkin pc3200 memory.
I updated the BIOS because I think it is having a hard time reading the memory properly. Some games crash, and it use to crash all the time but I returned the two sticks of memory for two new ones. I have run memtests on all of them, but and they all produce errors but I am having a hard time beliving that this is the memory fault (after going through 4 sticks of name brand memory) since the motherboard has to read the memory in the first place.
And the update notes on the BIOS may agree with me:
So my question is when I ran WINFLASH I was given the option of BOOTBLOCK (see how to run winflash link within the link above) and that is all I did.
There were other options such as update all, as well as clear CMOS. Did I update the BIOS? What is BOOTBLOCK and why is it defaulted to update just that even in the walk through guide?
Do I want to update all? Sounds good on paper, but updating BIOS is definetly not my strong point and I don't want to fry this already crappy motherboard.
