    Hey all I know I am a newbie but I was told this would be the best site for help.

    I got this Mother Board http://www.uabit.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=32&Itemid=48&page=1&model=381
    and it is saying code 10. Well I looked into this and code 10 is "Auto detect flash type to load appropriate flash R/W codes into the run time area in F000 for ESCD & DMI support"

    What does this mean? Can someone please translate this in to english so I know what to fix.


    Thanks again

    It it is hanging there I would say that the bios is fubar. You'll want to see if it's under any kind of warranty and get it tested/replaced by the store or abit.

    I've been using an abit motherboard for quite some time and when I first got it I had some pains with getting it to post. I flashed the bios with the same bios that was installed and it booted right up. It wasn't that the bios was a bad bios but that the flash wasn't taken properly by whoever put my chip on. I would think trying that out might be a good idea.
