Scenic edition X102 (Celeron) - BIOS and VBIOS update

Postby Blueice » Thu Apr 02, 2009 17:03

I have a Scenic edition X102 (Celeron) with mainboard D2140-B11 and Bios: V 5.00.R1.10.2140.01 (07/13/2005). Monitor is FSC LCD XL3220W.

The problem is my onboard VGA, because it does not recognize my 22'' LCD monitor and the resolution is not shown right. I tried different VGA drivers (old an new for SiS 661FX/GX) and I also tried with manual installation for VGA and also with and without drivers for monitor and the problem is still here. In the properties of VGA is selected CRT monitor and I can't choose the LCD monitor because the option is not available to confirmed it.
So I was reading in internet that the BIOS update could help me (I hope).
There is another problem because I don't know which BIOS update to choose.
I have D2140-B11 version. In FSC driver update there is 4 version for BIOS update (D2140-A1x, D2140-A2x, D2140-B1x, D2140-B2x).
Because I have the D2140-B11 BIOS version and in the D2140-B1x section is only one update - and is the same as I already have, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this is possible to update/upgrade my D2140-B11 BIOS with other versions of BIOS (D2140-A1x or D2140-A2x or D2140-B2x)?


Thanks for reply!

This is not possible!!

There is a reason that there are four different BIOS Verrsions for the 4 different mainboards D2140-A1x, D2140-A2x, D2140-B1x, D2140-B2x.

You can only install the fitting version. So there is no update for you. If the onboard graphic does not support your LCD you have to use an additional graphic card.

Supported resolutions of the onboard graphics are:

640 x 480
800 x 600
1024 x 768
1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200
1920 x 1440
2048 x 1536

Thank you for your answer.

The problem is because this computer does not have AGP or PCI-E card slot, it only have 3 PCI slots and that is it. And I don't know if I can get correct graphics card for PCI and that it will be working with my LCD.

I know that it is hard ro find a suiting PCI card, but you have no other chance. The Edition is series was sold by the price, so it is clear, that it has not all the features of an more expensice PC.
