Thread: Need help with G200 BIOS

    Default Need help with G200 BIOS

    I have a MGA-G200 that propably has the BIOS somehow screwd up...
    The problem is that the card won't output anything during post.

    The motherboard is the Asus P5A with Ali Alladin V chipset.

    I tried updating the BIOS with the BIOS utility but it gives an error: Unable to get eeprom information.

    The BIOS at the moment is 2.3-11 according to the utility

    I also tried running the diagnostic tool and it gave the following error: Primary BIOS not identified

    And no, I do not have a BIOS recovery disk...sorry

    Is there any way to repair the damage that has been done?

    Try the restore bios utility on the matrox website http://www.matrox.com/mga/support/dr.../ftp_util2.cfm

    Default No luck with bios recovery disk

    Tried the BIOS recovery disk and recognizes the g200 ok but says: flash failed..

    I'm starting to think that the card is useless...

    I'm open to any suggestions though
