Motherboard needs BIOS. GA-8SIML


Well-known Member
This motherboard is saying BIOS file missing or something along those lines, However to flash the BIOS I need to be on the OS. which I can't get to because no BIOS File.

I'm looking for an solution.

If I am not mistaken that is a socket 478 board(Pentium 4 CPU). You could try Q-Flash which is on the BIOS chip but if not possible then the only option would be to replace the BIOS chip but on that board I doubt that will be possible as it is probably directly attached. You could try e-bay for a second hand M/B but to be really honest I would say its time to replace the PC.

For some unknow reason the PC has decided to come back to life.

I think its time to throw it out...
