Before updating your bios make sure there's a valid reason for it... in other words?
1. have you tried other solutions to the problems you may be having
2. is there something in the updated bios that you currenlty need?
3. is there something actually working poorly on your corrent motherboard or built in controlers, sound, usb devices, network controller etc..

when updating the bios there's a rule of thumb that says "if it's not broken don't fix it".. as it may create real problems you may not be able to revert back.

as per installation.. the package with the bios update is an executable file (???.exe) that may come prepackaged in a compressed file (???.rar)... download the file and then use WINRAR or WINZIP a program to unpack the ???.rar file for you to access you exectable file (???.exe) inside the .rar file.

hope it works and good luck..
make sure to back up your data as who knows what may happen...
also.. make sure your computer is not shutdown while your updating/flashing the bios.. this may mess up the board completely!

    here.. taken from the asrock website

    http://www.asrock.com/support/BIOSUI.asp...



    get the file for the flashing bios process (updating the bios) from here

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Mo...

    and follow the instructions:





    Updating BIOS Procedures



    1. Create a bootable system floppy disk.
    2. Download an updated ASRock BIOS file (WinZip format with .zip file extension) from the web site, unzip the BIOS file and save both ASRFLASH.EXE utility and BIOS file to the disk you created in step 1.
    3. Boot from the disk you created in step 2.
    4. At the "A:\" prompt, type ASRFLASH, hit space bar once, and type BIOS file name then press . For example: A:\ASRFLASH K7S41GX2.00 then you will see a message "Please wait for BIOS loading ROM".
    5. After 30 seconds, you will see the message "Flash ROM Update Completed - Pass", then you have finished upgrading the BIOS.
    6. After finishing upgrading the BIOS, please remove the floppy disk. Restart your system and press to enter the BIOS setup utility during boot up.
    7. In Exit menu, please select "Load Default Settings" and press to continue.
    8. Select "Exit Saving Changes" and press to exit the BIOS setup utility.
    9. Now, system is booting up with new BIOS.


    reply if you have any questions and I'll try to help you out!

Just got a brand new gigabyte motherboard,when i shutdown the pc it wont reboot. when the power switch is pressed nothing happens no fans,led, nothing. the board is a ga-990fxa-ud3,cpu- amd phenomII...


Hi Orville,

Your problem is all about your motherboard you need to updated to BIOS firmware to solve your problem.

Go to the gigabyte website then go to your motherboard page and download and updated to the latest firmware for your bios.

Steps in flashing BIOS
How to Reflash Motherboard BIOS About updating BIOS... The whole BIOS updating procedure should be treated with extreme caution. If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it. If you determine to flash BIOS, you are taking a personal risk of BIOS flash failure. Please contact your supplier or our distributors/resellers for further remedy in case system crashes unfortunately because of BIOS flash failure. Before you begin... 1. Please make sure the BIOS version you want to flash matches your motherboard model. 2. If your BIOS is flash protected, please do not enable BIOS Flash Protection under Advanced CMOS Setup (AMI BIOS) or Advanced BIOS Features (AWARD BIOS) in BIOS menu. 3. Never interrupt when you BIOS is being updated. 4. Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction. Three BIOS Flash Utilities... We provide three BIOS flash utilities at our website. Below are the overviews. 1 : flashbios_qflash.gif A BIOS flash utility embedded in Flash ROM. Not all motherboards have the Q-Flash, please use @BIOS or DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not have Q-Flash. Features-- With this utility, you only have to stay in the BIOS menu when you want to update BIOS. No need to enter DOS or O.S. mode. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional floppy disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 2 : flashbios_atbios.gif A Windows-based BIOS live update utility. Features-- @BIOS helps you search for, download, and then update the latest BIOS in Windows operating system. Caution-- Make sure your O.S. environment is stable. UEFI - Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif Download PDF User Guide pdf.gif 3 : DOS Flash utility Features-- The flash utility is a combination of AMI and AWARD BIOS flash utility. You can use it with both AMI and AWARD BIOS. Caution-- Make sure you have a functional DOS boot disk with the correct BIOS version for your motherboard.

I hope my solution may help you.
Thanks for using Fixya...;-)

My machine has this problem. every time i switch it on it says mac address are invalid in both cmos and flash. what do i do?


configured the BIOS settings yet? Make sure your set the RAM to run as Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB
the RAM you installed and to match the CPU bus. And there's probably several other settings that need to be tweaked as well. For example, if you're not running RAID, disable it.
If the problems continue, you may wanna try updating the BIOS. Actually, I just had a look at the ASRock site & here's what the latest BIOS fixes: "Modify MAC address function algorithm"

File P4P800SE.ROM not found


Hi,
Sounds like you're trying to flash the bios..

Using ASUS EZ Flash to update the BIOS: The ASUS EZ Flash feature allows you to easily update the BIOS without having to go through the long process of booting from a diskette and using a DOS-based utility. The EZ Flash is built-in the BIOS firmware so it is accessible by simply pressing <Alt + F2> during the Power-On Self Tests (POST). To update the BIOS using ASUS EZ Flash: 1. Visit the ASUS website (www.asus.com) to download the latest BIOS file for your motherboard and rename the downloaded file as P4P800SE.ROM. Save the BIOS file to a floppy disk. 2. Reboot the system. 3. To launch EZ Flash, press <Alt+F2> during POST

Hope this helps

First reboot the computer and enter the bios screen. Disable the bios protect...

Then reboot back into the OS (Presumably windows) and download the bios update from the manufacturer website. It will probably be a zip file containg the bios and the flash utility. Unzip the file and you should have a windows and/or DOS flash utility. If not, the utility should be posted on the website. If the utility is Windows, simpy run the utility. It will ask for the location of your bios file. The update utility will do the rest for you. If the program is DOS, the procedure is similar. Move the utility and bios update into your root directory, reboot, and simpy run the program from the command line.
