    just installed my new AV8 motherboard into my system, AMD Athlon 3500+, 2x
    512ddr400 ram, ge force 4 ti4200 graphics card (untill i can affored new
    one, but works on my old pc 2) sata 200gig hard drive. When i turn my system
    on, everything starts up, hard drive cd drives fans etc, but then nothing
    happens, the moniter does not come on or anything, i get a error code of
    ..0.4 which is not listed in my manual? my processor is a winchester chip, i
    read somewere that you need to update the bios for the av8 to work with the
    winchester chip? is this true? if it is true how can i update my bios
    because i dont have a processor to boot with? Thanks, Danny.
