As old as this mainboard is, there would seem to be very little to be gained with a BIOS update. It will not provide any appreciable ability to upgrade components, and if you have used this board for any length of time successfully, updating the BIOS is questionable. Many people think that BIOS upgrades will solve all problems with the board....in most cases it only serves to fix bugs in the current BIOS, allow for a few later-models of the CPUs that are already approved for use, and upgrade firmware for the on-board amenities. Realistically, the only time a mainboard BIOS update is warranted is at purchase if there is reason to install the update to provide better performance. The risks of BIOS upgrade often outweigh the benefits; many of us are steadfast in the belief that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
if the system boots but gives unknown processor message then it means you have to do what is says,that is to update your bios.
go to asus web site. www.asus.com
go to services ---> support ----> download
on the left hand side at the top enter your motherboard model number "P5SD2-VM". under it choose Bios
the main board model will be listed and you be asked to choose an operating system. (choose any operating system. bios is independant of operating system)
look at the list all available bios versions. download the latest. it usually comes with the upgrade utility as well but you can download the utility anyway
you cal also try this link for your bios download
format a floppy disk and make it bootabel (you can also use a usb flash drive or even a cd) copy the files to it. start the computer and boot from it. at command prompt type the afudos command and the new bios version. follow the prompt. it will update the bios.
Several slightly different motherboards have the part number "MS-7267", followed by an additional number, such as "200". These indicate different revisions of the board, which may have slightly different hardware on them.
For convenience, I have provided a link to one of these revisions below. Note that if it is not your specific model, some of the drivers may not work, and you should not attempt to upgrade your BIOS until you have verified your model.
neways try this:
1.go to ur Motherboard manufacture website and search if updated drivers for ur MBD are available, these include GFX, HDD, BIOS
2.Is ur HDD old, rpm-5200? try upgrading
3.If these dosnt help thn contact me
Unless you can upgrade your bios chip, you can only go to
(Socket 462) AMD® Athlon/Athlon XP/Duron processor up to 2000+MHz.
If you upgrade your bios to version 1.1
You can run the XP 2200+ , Socket A.
have you ensured that the jumpers on the back of the new hard disk are set correctly? if you want your 40gb HDD to be a master you must set it to master and your 20gb as a slave if you want them both on the same IDE cable look at pic below the image is only a guide as I do not know what HDD you have.
