This was taken from a working Windows 7 system but is being sold as faulty due to the problems outlined below.
1. When connected to an LCD TV the system would randomly lose video signal so the screen would be black/blank and the only way to fix it was to reset the system. Seemed to work better when connected to a monitor.
2. Noticed that the BIOS was an old version so decided to flash to latest. Tried flashing from within Windows, from a USB memory stick and also online via an option in the BIOS but all failed with error message stating BIOS version was not compatible.
After messing with several BIOS settings (can't remember which) the system now boots straight into the BIOS and not Windows. There is an option within the BIOS to flash online - selecting this option fails to flash but will then let you boot into Windows ! This was the only way I could find to allow the system to load Windows.
A successful flash might fix all the problems above but I had neither the time or inclination to troubleshoot further so the mobo was replaced and this one is now for sale.
Includes original box, backplate, manual, driver disc and 2 new SATA cables.
