    Nice to hear!

    That is an option, that you must enabled in the BIOS for the BIOS to be written to disk. And even if you did it in the past without knowing (Some BIOS had enabled by default, is now Disabled by default), and the BIOS was corrupt and it was activated, first your second BIOS chip would have to fail as well, and either way you would see a BIOS Recovering message on the screen.

    It is ONLY used when 3 things happen:
    1. Your MAIN BIOS fails.
    2. Secondary BIOS fails.
    3. BIOS not found on CD

    Then the board will search the HPA Section of the hard drive for a BIOS backup.

    Sounds like something was just loose and you fixed it, nothing BIOS related at all that I hear. If you can cancel your order in time that would be nice, otherwise you can sell it or keep as a spare.

    Nice to see it all worked out for you, thanks for the update!

    Don't believe anything was lose nah, seems to have been directly related to the power problem; nice to have it worked out in the end in any case. Yea can't cancel the mobo order, as it's already in dispatch; got enough spare components around to put together a new computer in any case, so may as well upgrade our downstairs TV/Film one to do games as well. Thanks for the help.
