Well hers my story... I ran SiSoft Sandra doing the tune-up wizard and it keps telling my my bios is three years old. So i went to go flash update my bios, and I got the old ecs website (oh yeah, my board is a N2U400-A 1.0) and then i found the new, in-use ecs website and found where i am supposed to be.

well heres where my trouble starts, i hate re-formating. I have so many movies, videos, pictures etc. that re-downloading and re-saving them takes to much time and everything. and apparently I am missing something when it seems it should be obvious.

BIOS Name BIOS for N2U400-A(PCB:1.0)
Version 1.0e
Release Date 2004/08/31
Update Description 1.Support AMD K7 Sempron model 10 2200+/2800+ CPU.
2.Support AMD K7 Sempron 2200+/2300+ CPU.
3.Fixed Seagate HDD install Windows98 will be show user.exe error.
4.Update code for some version chip cause system hanging on boot.
Special Note *This BIOS is not compatible with N2U400-A PCB:1.0U

Here's my question, How do i know if I have N2U400-A 1.0U ?

LemonLime...

It would appear that your MoBo is the N2U400-A PCB:1.0. I can find no reference to "PCB:1.0U" in the everest log. Given that the information in the everst log is not as complete for ECS boards (no board ID#) as it is for other brands, I cannot be 100% sure.

Flashing BIOS can often lead to more problems than it cures. If you are not experiencing problems, I would advise against it. Presented with two incompatable BIOS versions and not being 100% confident in which version board I had, I would opt for leaving things as they are. IMHO..... :tazz:
