Kinda NEW and need some help.


OSNN Newbie
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
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 read that post early this morning and was like wtf. Glad to read that it seems to be a BIOS glitch and that Abit is sending you a new one

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.

Nice thing with this mb is it has no jumpers for the bios reset. It has a switch you flip to flash it. but yesterday abit send me the chip. thanks again.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
