    D945GTP Bios problem...

    maxsteel

      Hi all, I hope someone can help me with this...

       

      I have D945GTP motherboard. I'm trying to upgrade the BIOS from 3896 to 3992 or above...  The reason is cos I've come across a SL9KE Pentium 4 to replace my current CPU with (it runs far too hot and my chassis is an all in one so no hope of any improvement to the cooling...)

       

      It gets as far as flashing lan image then freezes...  I've tried with a few different BIOS versions, all do the same.  Already tried the express setup and ISO setup.  No floppy drive unfrotunately... although I may be able to steal one from another PC at college, I dont seem to have a molex to floppy power connector which is gonna be a pain to get at short notice...

       

      Before anyone suggests a search, I already did and found the disable LAN idea.  It didn't work for me :-/ just my luck...

       

      I'd really like to get this working so any ideas?

       

      I know its an old CPU and old motherboard but I'm a hobo student, happy to use this til it stops working.  Thanks all!
