Where did you get the BIOS file?
If from Intel.com, is it one of these?
If so, I'd use the flash BIOS version that works from within Windows.
What company gave you the instructions for messing with a jumper...and why?
Did you encounter a BIOS password, which requires you to play with the jumper?
I have a desktop with intelP4(2.8GHz), D865PERL motherboard. Problems started when I was installing a few programs(Mutimedia and Games related) and also the latest updates of WinXP SP2 a month ago. I received a message to update my BIOS twice on the screen. My computer also started heating up in its zones (1&2) and making noises as that of a chopper flying at some distance. As I didnt know how to update BIOS and my friends opinion was not to do something none of us knew about so I did all that was possible to reduce the problems untill I get the experts' advice on this. I got new fans to reduce the noise levels, it helped but I cannot run XP for more than few minutes at a time, so I have switched to FC4, after dual booting it with the existing XP it has reduced a few problems, but sometimes overheats when playing games or movies. I have already downloaded the latest BIOS but the problem is I dont know how to or what kind of jumper to use to get the BIOS settings to 1&3 as instructed by the company for updating BIOS. I really need some help on this one, as I am really getting stressed out.
