Abit KG7 RAID BIOS

By ninet4 ·
I have an Abit KG7 RAID Motherboard. I recently tried to go into the BIOS to change some settings. Upon booting up, I hit the del key to enter the BIOS, but it never came up. I tries to, but just leaves me at a black screen with a blue bar acrossthe bottom. I have tried restarting the computer a bunch of times, I upgraded the BIOS to the latest version, I reset the BIOS to the factory defaults using the onboard jumpers. Nothing has worked. Thinking maybe it was my monitor (only thing I have changed in the last 6 months) I tried using a different one, same thing there. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have a KT7A-RAID board and have problems with it. Different issues than yours but it appears that you might have a faulty BIOS chip. You've apparently tried everything feasable short of contacting Abit directly. I checked the website, abit-usa.com and the board has been discontinued as well. But contacting them directly may be your only option.. if it's still under warranty they may do an exchange with you otherwise they should still give you support. Sorry this wasn't more helpful but Ithink that's your best option.

Good luck!

Thanks for the response, but I had already emailed the manufacturer. Still waiting for a response from them.

Try removing the CMOS battery, and un-plugging the power supply.

Leave them unplugged for about 1/2 hour.

Then, reconnect power and boot up.
If you get into BIOS settings, then plug in the battery.

One trick I have found useful with ALL socket A motherboards is to set the CPU speed and multiplier manually.

Also, check out the FAQs published at http://www.sudhian.com/faqs.cfm

Paul's FAQs are very informative.

I believe that DR is just trying to bolster your confidence in my answer.

To DR, I appreciate the confidence and recognition.

Thanks for your help, but I received some advice from Technical Support which worked. They had me disconnect all my chasis fans, which for some reason allowed me to get into the BIOS.

Chas is the Abit and Azus motherboard expert . He should be able to give you a hand with your Abit board.

Not sure how telling me that someone who already posted a response is an expert qualifies as a response to a question.
