My first post here, so Hello everyone!

I'm updating my old desktop (more RAM, different graphics, new CPU), changed from a AMD Athlon64 3000+ to a 3800x2, and realized that my BIOS for the motherboard was not updated to handle the dual-core(total slip on my part). I cannot find the BIOS revision (05.10.14 from what i've found) or anything newer on a working download site. The model is EPOX EP-9NDA3J, does anyone still have this board or BIOS revision for it to support dual-core? EPOX support has yet to reply to me, if they are still there. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Found THIS page on google. The eventual link is dead.

Found THIS thread on google... which led to this file name... da3j5a14.zip

Searched google for da3j5a14.zip, and found THIS website (not sure what language the website is... seems eastern)

I downloaded the zip file and it appears to be a bios flash (bin + awdflash), but version is unknown. However, the date of the bin file is 10/17/2005... which is the same date that shows for the version found in the first link... which happens to be the 05.10.14 version you specified.

No guarantees it'll not hose your system... SO USE WITH CAUTION AND AT YOUR OWN RISK.
