    Yes, it likely would since you are using such a old BIOS version. Please read here before you flash, and DO NOT USE @BIOS >>>

    You did pick the Budget P43, + Budget Model "L" so you may be at the top end of the double budget board though, just not sure. But yes I would for sure flash to at least F7

    I read through that topic, but I haven't a floppy drive; can I flash using a bootable CD?

    There is info there on how to do it from USB, do you have one of those?

    You do not need anything "Bootable" you can go right to qflash from the BIOS or the Post screen, using the "END" key at boot time, or while on the main page of the BIOS hit F8. Then all you will need is to have the BIOS .Fxx File on a USB or FAT32 Partition. Leave the USB Stick in when you reboot to Qflash (Just meaning you cannot plug it in while you are already in Qflash it wont be recognized)

    But to directly answer you, yes you can flash from a bootable CD. You would need to boot to DOS from this CD, and then put all 3 BIOS files onto another CD insert it and flashing by running the batch file, or the Flashspi/flash895 command with the name of the BIOS file following the command

    It would be much easier for you to flash from Qflash though, with a USB Stick

    Yeah, I'm sure it would, though I haven't one.

    As for the CD flashing, why would I need two CDs?

    AND - Do you happen to have a boot image that I could burn?

    Thanks lad, you're very helpful!

    Cheers

    OK, I've updated my BIOS, though still I'm out of luck.
    It looks like my board's maximum FSB is 419. (3777GHz)

    Oh well, I've come to accept it.

    Thank all of you lads, who have come to help me.
    Of course, if you come up with some other ideas, I'll be thrilled to know.

    Cheers!

    I doubt it very much that is your Boards FSB max. Set your CPU mutli to 6, ram dividier to 2.0 and push your Voltage up pretty high and set FSB over 500 you will see it will go there easy

    You just have to keep at what you are trying to reach, you will get there it just takes some time

    This is the exact issue that frustrates me; I of course tried to lower the multiplier to 6, pumped up the voltages, lower the RAM, and still, it would not go through 419.

    Have you another idea, perhaps?

    What voltage are you setting in the BIOS? It will be alot less once the system starts, about .6 or so less. So keep that in mind.

    I use 1.38 or so set in the BIOS to get 1.32 or so in windows to run 4Ghz.

    Please post exactly what you are trying when you try for 4Ghz, and I will see if I see any issues >>>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    What do you mean? I use the settings you've just given me a few posts ago.

    If you have issues with this, then set all ram timings high as suggested below, memory multi (Keep a eye on, it will go to auto when you switch the latch) static tRead high, voltages and then reboot to change this.
