    So I put my old motherboard into my 2nd computer and all of a sudden i get an "unknown flash type" error and the computer won't boot up. aargh! I can't stand all the problems i have with my computer.

    I switched to my back-up bios (thank God for Dual Bios). I still get the error, but at least i can boot up the computer. I'm now booting up from my backup bios and would overwrite the main bios except for that error problem i don't know about what will happen.

    Can anyone help. What is a flash type, and why is it unknown¿

    it is the gigabyte bx2000+ mobo.

    pIII 550mHz 100fsb
    768 pc133 dimms
    HP cd writer 4x4x24
    voodoo5 5500agp
