Thread: K8V Deluxe mobo bios problems

    I tried to install the new rev 1004 bios using the exact instructions (k8v1004.exe vs live update or other methods).

    The BIOS was 99% done and caused an error. Now I get black screen (on two video cards).

    Clearing post ram doesn't help.

    Trying the Crash-Proof bios methodology of having the image on a USB floppy, a mem stick, the utility CD that came with the system, nor a new CD with the images did not work (yes, correctly renamed to "K8V Deluxe.rom")

    I just get back screen although the system is spinning up and polls each device, but then bukas.


    Does the Mobo have a replaceable BIOS?

    go to the web site of your mobo's manufacturer and look up their instructions on bios recovery. it seems to vary a good bit from one company to the next.

    edit: just in case you got lucky, remove the battery, unplug the PSU and let it sit for 5-10 minutes to clear the CMOS, plug it back up, replace the battery and see if that helps
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Thanks very much. Undertook the research and the battery & post ram clearing procedure and I'm still SOL. :(

    Hey guys,
    I also have a k8v deluxe that i have a bracuda sata drive hooked to. I upgraded to windows xp sp2 and it crshed my bios somehow and made it look for a raid setup and hard drive and no matter what i couldn't get the bios to see my hard drive again. so i reflashed my bios and of course that crashed and I get no boot black screen of death. No read of anything including floppy just check of something i can't determine. All fans spin. If you get an answer could you let me know too. I have not tried CMOS reset yet though so I may have some hope.
    Good luck.
