I am having an issue getting my v5 5500 pci working on a dell GX260.. the symptoms are a corrupt bios screen , then a clean boot into windows xp and then it freezes. It is an Intel board with the PCI slot coming off a riser expansion.

the V5 5500 works great in my AMD 3400+ setup that has ended up being a FX5900ultra + V2 SLI Setup. I wanted to get this GX260 going so as my compact retro gaming PC.

i have a feeling it is a bios problem , what is considered the most stable bios for the v5 5500 pci?

i read about a "trigger" validated bios and going to try that tonight. Is that considered the best/most stable bios available?

the latest official bios for v5pci should be ok. trigger's verified BIOS is for v5mac only (for flashing a v5mac for pc)..
