Hi freak761, it sounds like the bios was corrupted. Contact ECS through their online technical support, click on this link; http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/TSSRequest.aspx?CategoryID=1&MenuID=19&LanID=0
Fill out the required information. Request a new "updated" bios for your board. Most manufactures charge $5.00 US for a new bios. ECS's web site for the P4M900T-M2 V1.0

With respect to your Hisun pen drive. Many people claim the total size of their pendrive may be fake.
There is a suggested test program that might help. Run, Bart's Stuff Test 5 Version 5.1.4 to help check your pendrive. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Bart%27s+Stuff+Test+5&btnG=Google+Search&aq=f&oq=

In windows XP you can also use windows disk manager. Open windows run window & type in diskmgmt.msc than click ok. Format the partition of the pendrive through disk manager.

Good luck!
Mike

After setting the bios for formatting my ecs p4vmm2 v5.0A hangs up what could be the problem and solution for this problem pls help me...


I had that motherboard, wasn't happy with it at all.
But you can flash the BIOS if you want . Make sure you download the correct BIOS version. There are like 10 versions for P4VMM2. I chose the wrong one last time my system didn't boot. I threw the motherboard away, purchased an Intel Motherboard.
I'm not a ECS fan at all. Use AMI flash utility , flash the BIOS under Windows.

This motherboard has been working flawlessly for months. Suddenly all entries in device manager starting with "system management bus" have the yellow Bang! symbol. The all say they need the driver...


This motherboard may need to have the firmware in the bios re-flashed with the latest version.
All functions in the motherboard need the bios. If the bios is corrupted, you will have problems similar to what you have stated.
Look up the bios on the Internet for the version of motherboard and the bios.
Re-flashing with the wrong version will ruin the motherboard's bios. Be sure you have the correct version and re-flash the bios.
Then try the board.

M955g v: 3.0a Bios changes time and date back


It looks like you have the latest BIOS, but I would flash it again, evidently something went wrong, if flashing with v3.0 doesn't work, go to the ver before and re-flash.

Updated bios problem on a780gm-a


I think you had a bad flash!

So re-download a new bios file from there web site and try again, with these instructions....

Updating the BIOS
You can download and install updated BIOS for this motherboard from the
manufacturer’s Web site. New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements
in performance, or fixes for known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows:

1 If your motherboard has a BIOS protection jumper, change the setting to
allow BIOS flashing.

2 If your motherboard has an item called Firmware Write Protect in Advanced
BIOS features, disable it. (Firmware Write Protect prevents
BIOS from being overwritten.)

3 Create a bootable system disk. (Refer to Windows online help for
information on creating a bootable system disk.)

4 Download the Flash Utility and new BIOS file from the manufacturer’s
Web site. Copy these files to the system diskette you created in Step 3.

5 Turn off your computer and insert the system diskette in your computer’s
diskette drive. (You might need to run the Setup Utility and change the
boot priority items on the Advanced BIOS Features Setup page, to
force your computer to boot from the floppy diskette drive first.)

6 At the A:\ prompt, type the Flash Utility program name and the file name
of the new bios and then press <Enter>. Example: AMINF340.EXE
040706.ROM

7 When the installation is complete, remove the floppy diskette from the
diskette drive and restart your computer. If your motherboard has a
Flash BIOS jumper, reset the jumper to protect the newly installed BIOS
from being overwritten. The computer will restart automatically.

Hope This helps

Have a nice day!

Failure in boot up after updating p4xp-x


Hi rouzbeh_be20, you can try clearing the bios jumper & removing the cmos battery. (Do not forget to re-set the bios jumper back to normal).
Check the battery for 3 volts DC. If the battery is less than 3 volts DC replace the battery. You can call Asus & ask for a replacement bios chip. Your board was made back in 2003 but Asus can flash a bios for you. The last time I ordered a bios from Asus it cost me $5.00 US not including shipping. You can call Asus California M-F 8:00AM. to 5:00PM. PST. At ( 510-739-3777 ). Only the CA site can order a bios for you.
Tech support live chat; http://livesupport.asus.com/
Write down the SN# found on the pink parallel port (In side the case). Asus will want that information.
Having the bios chip replaced is the cheapest way around this issue.

Good luck rouzbeh_be20!
Thank you for using fixya.

About bios update


If you have never "flashed" the bios before you will need to go the Intel website where you can enter your Intel motherboard model information. That will lead you to diagrams of your motherboard that shows where any related CMOS jumpers are located and what positions they must be jumpered to accept a flash bios update. You will also be provided with the FIRMWARE file download and instructions. Pay careful attention to the instructions as flashing the BIOS chip can disable your computer if you have the wrong firmware or if the power to the computer is lost while updating.    The model number will be printed on the motherboard itself. It is an easy process if you study the instructions. ~Steve Medley

Updated bios


Can you still access the bios setup page? It could be a flash gone wrong. Flashing could have failed, or wrong flash, or other reason. You can try flashing again, but tell me step by step how the problem goes.

Flahed wrong bios


simple. get the board over to a friend. Be careful with this step now..

loosen the bios on the friend's motherboard so that it just touches the contacts and once it boots into a dos mode swap it with your bios and flash the correct one. remember to be very very careful about how you insert the bios chip.
it works as i have done it for my old k8v-vm ultra

BIOS update (motherboard GA-6BX7+)


Please disable "BIOS Flash Protection" function in the BIOS or by Jumper. About the details, please refer to your motherboard manual.

refer to page 22 of THIS manual

If you "search" the word "flash" there are many references that may be of assistance if the jumper does not resolve issue for you
