@mr. monger - how do i go about doing this?

@TRDcorrolla - i agree foxconn is pretty crappy but what the hell, i am a sucker for cheap stuff. usually foxconn has the lowest prices on mobos on newegg.

Oh yea that happened to me, I thought it would double my power from 115 to 230, but it fried my Powersupply.

If your BIOS is not showing up, try finding a little pin with a thingy on it. SHould be a 3 pronged pin on your motherboard with a black casing thing on it. Look for the words "foxconn" and "BIOS", "eeprom", "Phoenix Award", or whatever. If you find it, pull it off and then stick it on the middle and end piece (the end piece being the one you were'nt using), and then wait 5 minutes, go get something to snack on, or something, then come back and put it on the middle piece and the other end piece. If this doesn't work, then you "buddy" fried your BIOS and you're now screwedz0r. Pretty sure you can get everything out of it and use it, but the BIOS is bad so you have to throw away the motherboard.
