I'm using a Luckytech Pro5MVP4 mobo & I've always had problems with an invalid page fault & lock ups in the BIOS.

Three possibilities have been suggested from various forums
a)Mobo screwed
b)CPU screwed
c)BIOS screwed

The easiest to address is the BIOS, since that involves zero cash outlay. Also, if I screw up the mobo in the process, I get an excuse to buy a new one withou feeling guilty. Problem is I can't find the Luckytech website, and there's no sign of any help on the VIA website either.

Anyone know any websites that list BIOS's for various mobo's?

Any help appreciated.

Thx:cheers: :beer:

Hmmmm.....
That's seems like it will be a hard 1 as I've just been to http://www.motherboards.org and found that all their links to Luckytech sites are all dead. :(
But then they were never know for reliable boards. :smokin:

The LuckyStar company seems to be Russian. There php coding is screwed, so you might try tomorrow for some better luck, but here is the link to the site:
http://www.lucky-star.ru

Here's a link to the BIOS page:
http://www.lucky-star.ru/support/bios.php3

And for grins and giggles, here's the link to the page that discusses your SS7 motherboard:
http://www.lucky-star.ru/products/motherboards.php3?ID=800034

Hmmm... found another link to a Taiwanese site, so that may be their home base. Still looking...

Sorry... couldn't come up with a working page to get a new BIOS. Try the Russian link after a day or so, or shoot a line off to the webmaster of the site asking about a BIOS.

Good luck!

Lines 90 through 92 of the php works!

Contact page of Luckytech asks for postal address & telephone number - no e-mail & it ain't secure, so unfortunately its a no-no.:grenade:
