Hello,

I flashed a FIC VA-503+ v1.2a board with the wrong bios...shut down entirely.

Is the bios chip soldered or removable?

Can you sell a replacement?

Thanks,

Alex Perry

That doesn't work when you corrupt the bios with a bad flash. If your board was super cheap it wont have a socket-ed bios chip.

That board, does in fact, have a socketed BIOS chip. It's along the front edge of the board, in front of the *cough cough* ISA slots. I'm curious though, why are you flashing the BIOS on a Socket 7 motherboard?
