I've got an ECS k7sem mother board and i need to flash the BIOS. There are 2 jumpers. ONe to clear the cmos and one to flash the bios. This question is for the jumper used to flash the BIOS. Here's what the manual says:

JP3: BIOS write-protect jumper
use this jumper to make the BIOS read-only

Function ------- Jumper Setting
Disable ------- short pins 1-2
Enable ------- short pins 2-3

I would think that i flash with the jumper on pins 1-2. Anyone else have an opion on this....

Hi,

I agree using pins 1&2 disable the read only function and allow to write/flash the bios. I don't undestand why they have such a jumper though cause it would be hard to accidentally flash the bios :tazz:
