No problem leugim. I've still got my 750a, but to be honest, with the hardware available these days, it makes more sense to change motherboards rather than try find new hardware for an old board... Especially one that's no longer supported by it's manufacturer.
Next month I'll be switching my board and CPU, I've already got a DDR3 RAM kit sitting in a box on my desk, I'm just waiting for the rest... I get all excited every time I look at it, but I can't use it yet.. Anyway, my point is that it would probably better to put aside the money you were going to spend on a CPU, add a bit more to it when you can, and get a better board and CPU at the same time. I'm selling my current rig to a friend of mine who can't afford the newer tech, so at least it's not being wasted and I'm still getting something out of it.

After going through all the pages recommended.This is what I had to do.
If you remember Dos Bios Flashing.... You'll be shuddering now. I was able to use a Windows based Flash to save my current BIOS... What it was I don't know... I used a lot.
First you'll need the Ami Bios Flash Program
Then you'll need the Bios in ROM Format (I Downloaded the Lot)
Create a Boot USB using a 1-2GB usb stick (The one in the back of your drawer with unknown filth on it)
From here you need to create a file on the USB called
Autoexec.bat (or copy the contents of the win98boot.zip that you extracted earlier fot the USB, don't overwrite any files.)
Right click it and edit it....
You need to type the commandline to execute your New Bios file.
AFUDOS XMA72P17.ROM /p /c
I went straight to the Latest as I had a Tripple core to donate to the Board.
Create a Folder on the USB called XFXBIOS (So you know later what it is)
Copy the AFUDOS.exe into the folder and all the ROM's.
Your USB is now ready to run.
Enter your BIOS and disable flash protection in the security section of BIOS.
Set your boot device to USB (Set the primary HDD to USB then the Boot Sequence)
Restart and cross your fingers...... I did..
The Flash program should start and may recommend changing one of the switches.
I accepted this change and it completed successfully.
Next you need to power off.
This is where I had a What the moment...... It took what felt a millenium to boot to the splash screen.
Repeatedly Press Del to enter BIOS.
And then Reset BIOS to Failsafe settings on the Exit Tab.
Then Save and Exit.
If you wish, re-enter bios and tweak your settings but I let Windows load.
I could see it was quicker instantly. (Obviously using the other 2 cores)
Hope this helps somone else as I was about to throw my board out.
