Nice hearing from you :-)

Yes! Especially if you could check the Pins where i have written Error? or 
s.t. like that. 

Please take a look at:
and read my mail from the 29.03.2007 00:23:"GA-M57SLI-S4 dual bios pins was 
Re: New with a GA-M57SLI-S4".

It would be really nice if you could recheck:
* all the "Error?" pins

* If #init is connected to some of the T1X or T2X pins (labeling according to 
the linked image above). 

* If any of the T3X or T4x pins is really not connected to the pads / flash.

* If any of the "Watchdog" pins are connected to any of the TXX pins.

> What about your discoveries about the #init pin?
See bullet point #1 in the above list.

Mh, ok. I've got an PLCC32 socket but no bios chip right now :-(.
