Official fix for Via Southbridge problem
After a large number of motherboard manufacturers have already published BIOS updates for their products in order to eliminate the problems with the Via 686B Southbridge, the chip manufacturer has now developed a patch to eliminate the problem. This little patch has not yet been officially released by Via, but the guys from ViaHardware have already got their hands on it.
The patch is still in beta and should therefore be used with great care. The download is here. You can get rid of your experiences with the patch in the forum.
