ESCD | Technical Info |


General Information

Extended System Configuration Data (ESCD )

A place in the computer's PnP BIOSs where information about peripheral devices  is stored reflecting the status of the systems configuration the last time the computer was booted. This applies  mostly to legacy cards. Some motherboards have a BIOS which allows you to delete the ESCD information  from the BIOS after an older legacy card has been removed from the motherboard.

Some BIOSs have a setting in the PnP section called "Reset Configuration Data". If you a message "updating ESCD...." you can "reset" the configuration of the computer's ESCD.

On some motherboards operating with EDO memory you can also try Enabling the EDO DRAM install option which is found in the Chipset Features section of the BIOS.

As a last alternative try disabling the external cache which is also located in the BIOS.

For M-technology motherboards you might have to set the bios jumpers to program mode (or 5V Flash mode).
