Q2

I have a problem with my motherboard ASUS 486PVI-SP3. It's due to a problem with the bios chipset. How can I do with your RD1, to solve this problem? It means, load a correct Award Bios on a new chipset.

A2

You need to have other 1Mbit type BIOS used motherboard to rescue your 486PVI-SP3.  First install RD1 on the other board and write 486PVI-SP3 BIOS data into RD1 then move RD1 from the other main board to 486PVI-SP3 then your bad BIOS can be repaired as well as having a backup BIOS. Since RD1 mainly designed and work as insurance.  Once accident happened without RD1 it is little complicated to fix but possible.

Q3

Which bios savior is for ECS K7S5A?

A3

K7S5A use 3.3V type FlashROM with PLCC figure. Our current RD1 series does not support these types of ROM. Some customer had tried our RD1-PL on K7S5A, they fail on updating, due to voltage difference. However, there are several users could update it with LUCK! Conclusion here is that RD1-PL may be able to work on your K75SA but we cannot guarantee at all.

RD2 Pro

Q1

I just purchased an RD2 PC Geiger, and am having trouble getting it to work properly.  When I power up, I see the bios codes for about 1-2 seconds, then the light for Frequency starts flashing.  It flashes back and forth between whatever functions I select, and the PORT 80/84h light.  All that shows in the display is !§80.00!¨.  My motherboard is an MSI K7T266 PRO2.  I downloaded the modbin files, saved my BIOS as a .bin file, and tried to edit it.  When I load the file with modbin.exe I go to !§chipset setup default!¨ and it says that there is no setup information.  I look at all other options and cannot fond the option for !§auto detect DIMM/PCI clk.

A1

I checked K7T266 Pro2 BIOS worth AMIBCP.EXE and knew there is no PCI clock disabling items shown. This means MSI decide not to be able to controlled easily about PCI clock suspending feature, you still have a way to keep get the PCI clock by asking MSI to get registered (KT266A north bridge) information then modify the BIOS in AMIBCP.EXE!|s "Edit Register Table" item.

Q2

The 80 feature stops at 26.  None of the other functions work. I have tried it on 2 computers with the same result

A2

This is caused by PCI clock suspension. This happens on other Debug card (POST card) device as well. You can fix this problem by the following method.

a) Change on BIOS setting from BIOS SETUP screen

b) Change BIOS setting by BIOS modification tool such as CBROM.EXE(for Award BIOS) or AMIBCP.EXE(for AMI BIOS)

c) Ask Motherboard maker to provide you non-PCI clock suspension type BIOS. 

Q3

I installed it on my abit sa6r motherboard which has a 933 PIII processor,. Will the problem is when I boot up it just goes to 80.26 and I cant toggle to one display to another.I read the troubleshooting section all 3 steps. I moved the card to another slot, checked to see in the bios if there is a dimm/pci  section which there was none. Downloaded the modbin and ran it and still no dimm/pci clk.

A3

You need to modify your BIOS data using modbin utility as explained in the manual. Since MODBIN is belongs to Award(Phenix) so, we could not explain in our manual. Please find modbin6.exe from some web site.  Due to copyright issue, we can not provide it, sorry.                                                                   http://www.biosmods.com/download.php#award is the one of the download site choice. Ver. 1.00.37 worked OK to me. Execute the utility and turn DIMM/PCI item visible.

Q4

First of all, have you tested this product on a 64bit/33MHz PCI Bus?I am using a Tyan Tiger MP S2460 and it has a few compatability issues.Second of all, do you offer this product in black?Or sell just the cover text on a sticker so the face can be painted and then the text reapplied?

A4

First,RD2 running at 32bit/33MHz bus. All the measuring is based on 32bit mode. Second,we only offer current champagne color hairline furnished aluminum panel only.
