It's the Devil!
Mutha - F*****
First, it's putting out some funky refresh rate that screws up the lilliput and makes it go over range...
Now, i can't even get a VGA out.
I should have read up on this ****ty *** BIOS but how could I have possibly known?
So just a warning to anybody that wants to flash the bios to get widescreen resolution capabilities....BEWARE!
Yeah, there are only a couple of threads here about the 1.16 Bios...but over at via-arena...there are quite a few people *****ing about loss of VGA.
Did you install the new video drivers after you flashed? Each time via updates the bios you need to have the latest driver version installed. I had the same problem when I flashed from 1.07 (or was it 1.06 don't remember the number exactly) to 1.13. installing the new drivers fixed the problem. Also make sure your bios is set to CRT not and not LCD.
Hope that fixes it for you.
The key sequence to get you to the video section of the bios is...
when you boot hit del several times
pgup and pg down will toggle through the choices. Or you can try clearing the cmos (check your manual for the procedure).
I just upgrade my Via's bios this past weekend to 1.16. I didn't have any issues though. Perhaps it's how your BIOS is configured BEFORE flashing?
I'm happy because my Epia boots a couple of seconds faster with 1.16 than it did with 1.03b.
My Epia is pretty old tho and it's what I'm using in my daily car.
the via-arena thread...one of the resolution seems to swapping RAM as there seems to be some memory-timing issues with the BIOS. I'm flashing back to 1.09 personally...
BTW, it isn't the VGA drivers...I made sure to install the latest drivers as posted by VIA.
least yours working - i bought GB of RAM for mine and it wouldnt boot up with it - swapped it with the 512 in my desktop and now it works fine.
Via-Arena was very helpfull - apparently if your video is set to LCD before you flash this causes problems
i bought a new M10000 a few weeks ago (my 5000 was much to slow) and my new board came with 1.16 installed.
It works 100% perfect !
Maybe the problem is the process of flashing, but the bios ist working very fine.
hi i had the same with the bios, try taking out the battery for 30 sec it will boot up again with vga output (swapping ram had no effect with me tried 5 different types) but if i now put my bios in LCD mode it has no vga output, when i switch from 32 mb shared to 64 it has no vga out either
my destinator map resource down permanently
If you do not get a picture on your Lilliput/Xenarc, just connect it to multisync CRT monitor (you should be able to see the VGA picture as usually), enter BIOS and change "Select display device" item to >>CRT<< in Advanced chipset options menu. Save by pressing F10 and reboot. From then, you will be able to use your Lilliput/Xenarc as before. Just remember it will default to "LCD" again if you reset your CMOS.
