I would've added onto one of the other threads, but I recall there being a lot of 'start a new thread', so I'm doin that.
So I used the wingui.exe to update my bios from P11.A2 to P11.B4 . Seemed to work, and the bios booted and and showed as P11.B4 . Exited the bios, and then the machine did the infamous long beep. Now, even when EVERYTHING is unnplugged from the board (except the PS of course), it beeps right on power button press. Sometimes it won't power back up until I unplug it and let alone for a minute. Tried all the usb stick stuff in the other threads. No go. The usb ports have power, as my phone will charge from them.
This machine has been such a suck, I'll just replace the whole thing instead of messing about with the bios chip. However, if there's some software trick or something, I'm game. Any wisdom out there?
