check what temps you are getting in the bios. it should have a temp monitor

For updating the BIOS on that board you would need to do it by floppy.
Haven't understood how to boot from usb.. cause this option is really missing!

Just FYI NO cell battery is 5V, they are 3V.
This might be a side issue, but given the age of the motherboard, I'm wondering if the CMOS/RTC backup battery needs to be replaced. It's CR-2032 +5VDC Lithium coin cell in a socket on the motherboard.
The battery is used to provide a trickle of current to the CMOS memory, which stores the BIOS settings and keeps the date/time clock going when power is turned off. When the battery drops below the level to keep the CMOS memory charged, the BIOS settings can become corrupted and the clock no longer set to the correct day and time.

No.. I can't log-in to operating system..
Did you run MemTest86 yet?
there are 3 modules.. 2x512 & 1 for 1Gb - I can try with a single one..
Have you tried using different ram? I have had this with bad ram.
