can anyone owning this m/board please tell me what the 3 pin header is- which is situated about 6mm from the back of the external lan/usb connectors. It has a 2 pin jumper on it shorting out pins 1 and 2 (i think, or it could be pins 2 and 3?). There is nothing in the manual or schematic drawings that shows or mentions this jumper or header. trying to install a new O.S.as soon as the post starts i get a message "cpu is unworkable or has been changed-re check cpu soft menu". which i did, tried all the obvious sources of possible error to no avail, e.g. new cmos battery etc, and wonder if i have a wrong setting on this jumper.The other error message is "unknown flash type" thanks in anticipation.
thanks wood chip but not the cmos jumper and on my board there is another header even closer to the lan connector, no more that 5-6mm with 3 pins and a 2 pinjumper on it but nothing in the manual and its definitly not a fan connector
thanks percy,at least they do not appear to be part of my problem, funny there is no mention in the manual, but you being very knowledgable re the nf 7-s might be able to tell me if there is a hidden option in the bios to disable "flash protection" which is part of my problem,
thanks percy but no go, tried it on enabled and disabled but no joy, ho-hum,back to the drawing board or most likely, back to the vendor! thanks again for all the help and suggestions to all my corerespondents hugo
