Bios Flash failure

Hi all,

I have a little problem with my second Epox 8KHA+ mobo. The Epox 8KHA+ which is in my main system has bios chip L and has no reset problems with the lastest beta bios from Epox (well done!! Epox by the way). On my second 8KHA+ there is no label on the bios chip and I am having a terrible time with the rebooting issue. I have tried to update the bios to the lastest revision but the system freezes in the middle of flashing. This occurs with the alt+f2 method of flashing as well as with the boot up disk method. Once my system freezes I simply press the reset button and the old bios on the EEPROM boots up(Sept bios revision). I have swapped the bios chips in the mainboards but after replacing the L-bios chip with the black bios chip the main system freezes during flashing with this bios chip installed. I reckon I need a bios chip replacement for this motherboard. Epox Tech how do I get an replacement???

Thanks

Paul.K
