I got to the manual and got it downloaded but I cant get the graphics to convert and show. So I cant seem to see the references the manual keeps referencing. Can I get the manual in PDF form or what.....?:confused:

Hiya

Found a manual, but its a document, not pdf.

Its here:

http://203.161.230.38/manual.html

and its a zip file. It says (748LMRT-13.exe) but when you open up the zip file, after virus scanning, it has 6 documents in.

I'll try and humt a pdf format for you.

Regards

eddie

Good to hear.

Is it the drivers for the MB, or for all the other hardware parts that you're after now?

o.k. time for an update.
this board has onboard everything. I dont have drivers for anything. when i got it going it went through and installed a big list of drivers on its own, things like pci to pci bridge, agp to cpu bridge, ide, etc...

problem is, it doesn't detect the video, or the modem. It detected the onboard sound, so i should be able to download the drivers and be set for sound.

Im not sure if drivers will help for the video and modem. even when i do a manual search for hardware, it doesn't find either one of them.
Does this mean they've gone bad?? it has 1 PCI, and 1 ISA , but they're a shared slot, so i can only use one. If i put a video card in, im stuck with no modem.
Any ideas???

Good "how-to" on flashing bios at the PCC Lottery site.

You really should check out their forums at the link I provided above. They have good recommendations on which bios version to use with which board.

For example, I was working on a 598LMR ver 1.3 board; flashing with the bios version recommended by the PCChips official sites has been known to result in a dead board - I wouldn't have known if I hadn't gone through the forums. I was able to do a good flash thanks to their advice.
