Specs: Windows XP
Hi.I have the problem with motherboard SL-65DVB.When I try to flash current BIOs it says
"Flash ROM is write protected.Please make sure whether lockout jumpers is set to correct or not"
But,how can I do that ?There are no jumpers on board nor settings in BIOS.

"There are no jumpers on board nor settings in BIOS"

Your board has numerous jumpers on it. Look for one in the general vicinity of the BIOS chip.

See page 38 of the manual for BIOS update procedure:

Thaks for such a quick response.I did it just like it says in Manual.I tried updating with awdflash (ver.8.93) and with/without switches (py/sn/cc...) but without result.I replace default positions for jumpers JP-8 and JP-9 (those are nearest to chip) and without effect.I looked for a clue in BIOS but there is no such a thing like "BIOS flash protection".I studied a Manual and there is no single word about enabling/disabling " BIOS writing protection".
So, it seems to me that I will have to do it on a hard way-"hot swapping"-updating BIOS chip on different mobo.Any suggestions ?!
