Hi Senor DonPedro,

Gracias for the link. I have been using AT 7000 with drivers (old) that came on disk. The 10GB HD drive gave up the ghost on the weekend in the middle of Pool of Radiance. I had an extra 10GB drive and ran it With Windows XP and did all directx tests. The Win XP runs slower than Win98 SE, so I may wipe out XP and put 98 back on it to use as my (intended Y2k game machine). It is not connected to internet (standalone), so I am not worried about old OS. So far, it has been rockin real good. I will put in the Nvidia 6200s in another old machine once I get a case and pwoer supply. Unfortunately, that other machine is not an AMD powered box, just a lowly 1.3Ghz Celeron full size ATX mobo. Thanks for keeping the thread alive. I hope to see more people revive old machines. :)

I do not feel particularly bad for resurrecting this thread as it is not nearly as old as my VA-503+ is.

Does anyone have (or have a link to) the JE4333-APM BIOS for this motherboard? It is a user-created BIOS based on FIC JE4333 that supports APM and supposedly improves support for LBA hard drives. All links I have found on the web are dead. Thanks in advance.

I am sorry, but I can't help in this case.
