I have posted that my windows xp hangs and a reply came that my BIOS is not compatible with my OS but my windows 98 also hangs like the hang in windows xp. does it means also that my BIOS is not compatible with our OS. How can I Flash BIOS ? and one thing the hang started when something happened that makes the BIOS setup has been set all to defaults even the time.
I forgot what it is but i think the problem is inside the BIOS Setup.


Note: MY MEMORY is not the problem because i have tried everything to our memory
also not in our video card and also not the USB Modem and Printer

My System is

AMD 800 Duron
ASUS Geforce 2 MX400 AGP Video Card
1 GB RAM (But now is 512 because i remove the other 512)
MS WIN XP Pro
USB Modem
USB Printer Epson C61
Keyboard and Wireless Mouse

Most Runned Programs: Corel Draw, NBA Live 2003, 3DSMAX5, MS WORD, CnC Generals, NERO Express

You can get the instructions from the manufacturer's website which you'll need to visit to get the BIOS update fule and the Flash Utility. Do you know what motherboard you have?

Now that aside, if two O/S's hang then I doubt its a BIOS O/S compatibility although it could be an incompatibility with another card/part in the system(like Timing for RAM). Could be something like a bad mobo, powersupply or overheating. Do you know what temps the computer runs at?

Here's a link to a program to help identify the mobo if you wish to do the BIOS update: http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=32
