    Hello,

    If you have been having problems with the board and at one time or another searched for the latest bios and have gone done dead end roads becasue of the MFG went out of business please help.

    I have contacted a company to develope an upgraded bios for our board. The cost is 60 bucks lets spread this out on as many people that could benifit from this.

    After i get 4 people to donate i will post the bios file for all.

    paypal [email protected]

    Thanks

    Upgraded power management
    Support for the latest processors
    Support for large drives

    I was most interested in power management

    There is a big list from there website www.esupport.com

    I talked to a guy there and he said that they had that board in a few months ago. the current bios was back in 05/06/2003

    so this one should fix some problems

    this is going to be a stupid question, but.. is there anything they might be able to do with the onboard video, for instance, in order to obtain 800x480 display? (or whatever the hell the native resolutions for xenarc and lilliput are)

    i think that we can get that put into the bios but it would probably cost more and one of us would have to send in the board.

    I went ahead and ordered it. I received it by email and fowarded it to JCdillin

    He said it loaded fine but now windows is not loading. If anyone wants to try it at their own risk i will email them the file. PM me or email me.

    I am working with JCdillin to get it to work. I'll keep everyone posted

    Edit: There support center is closed but i am confident that we can get a good bios from them that will fix some issues that we currently have.

    I am going to test the bios on my machine tonight. I am brining the computer inside and flashing it to test it out. I will report any problem with the technical support.

    I have held off accepting the Paypal donation until i can provide something working.

    I think it is worth it to do this. Tomorrow i will contact support and ask them about engineering a 800x480 support however i assume that it will be the same situation as with the via EPIA that we will need a bios/driver combination.

    Stay tuned. If you know other people with this board please foward them this link so and get them subscribed so we can get everyone collaberting on this one.

    We need to stick together on this one

    Update:
    After much testing of the Bios file that they sent me here is the results:
    Bios flashed properly
    Posted fine (this time it detected my p4-m cpu correct clock speed)
    Floppy drive faulure.
    Windows loads and then the CPU gets 100% shortly after loading

    I called tech support and they sent me another file. I gave that a go and all i get is one long beep. no post

    I am going to send in my motherboard for their engineers to look at so that they can get it working. Luckily the p4-itx looks like it has a removable bios chip.

    If you want to support this effort i will please paypal me. I am absorbing all the upfront cost and this is something that will benifit all P4 ITX owners.

    I will keep this thread updated.

    @SFiorito
    It is an award bios but they do engineer bios so they might be able to change the bios chip for you. This is beyond the scope of what we are trying to achieve here. Give them a call to see if they can help you out with your specific needs.

    I will be sending out my board today to there address. They will take the board and install the correct bios onto it. Then they will verify that it works. Then they will make sure that any additional requirments are fixed.

    If you guys have any request post em here within the next couple of hours and i can include them.
