    1.Do not update the BIOS if the system is running fine. Unsuccessful BIOS flash may cause the system fails to boot up. The manufacturer is not responsible for any BIOS flash failure.
    2.Make sure your M/B PCB version number first, and then read the updated description & special note carefully to check if the new BIOS version patch pertain to your current problem.
    (How to recognize the M/B PCB version)
    3.Please DO NOT reboot system,unplug power supply and remove battery during BIOS update process.
    4.It is recommended to use the updated flash utility included in each BIOS download package.

    Question
    There is a Northbridge cooling fan connector on K8T800-A. Does this MB really need a NB cooling fan or it is optional? 


    Answer
    It is optional, the Heat sink can be attached on the Northbridge instead of a cooling fan.


    Question
    Does K8T800-A support PowerNow function? 


    Answer
    No, it's related to CPU type. According to AMD, Desktop CPU doesn't support PowerNow function, but Mobile CPU.


    Question
    Why the K8T800-A install 2pcs of 512MB/DDR400 double side memory that memory clock is show 166 not 200. 


    Answer
    This is CPU feature, please see the guide P173 & P174 to check it.


    Question
    How do I install Win98SE OS to SATA HDD on K8T800-A M/B? 


    Answer
    Please enter the BIOS Setup--> Integrated Peripherals-->VIA OnChip IDE Device to set SATA mode to RAID mode, and then foramt the HDD and re-install Win98SE.
