Problem after updating asus bios

Using asus EZ flash 2 utility i updated my bios from version 0608 to new version 0901from asus update site on post i get a msg; 'Unknown CPU detected,bios update is required to unleash its full power'.
i now have to hit F1 to start up, i tried to downgrade back to version 0608 but i got a msg; 'Downgraded rom file was not suitable for the system'
however it did let me downgrade to version 0803 which is were im at now, so how can i get back to version 0608 or is it possible to fix the unknown CPU msg.its the first time ive tried to update bios and probably the last.i would be very grateful if any one could help me to fix this.

yours hopefully
robbie
Problem 1:
motherboard and cpu were both brand new. upon start up, it says: Undetected CPU. Bios update is required to unleash its power. Press F1 to resume. It then proceeds to windows after pressing F1. (Problem 2:) No other problems were encountered while using the PC except when you shut it down, it doesn't turn off. It's stuck on "Windows is shutting down, please wait..." until you give up waiting and just turn it off by pressing the power button. thanks.

motherboard: asus p5vd2-vm
CPU: core2 duo e7300

The first thing I would try is to clear CMOS. Either set the jumper on the motherboard to do this, or even remove the battery, and wait half an hour or so. When installing a new CPU, and even RAM, you should always clear CMOS.

Cheers

Hi, Hope you can help. I've just fitted a new motherboard to my computer (ASUS crosshair 2 formula). My memory is 2 x 2GB DDR2 running at 800Mhz. Th machine will run fine using either of the sticks, but...


Hi. Asus has a great utility that lets you update your bios even in Windows.

http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=EIDxaW1Ln3YR9RA2

At the download section select your OS and in Utility section find "ASUS Update V7.14.01 Install Program" This program will automatically update your bios.


As for your Ram issue. Did you try each stick in each ram slots ? If you did and saw no issues, then I am only suspescting of incompability between your Rams.

Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to K8NVM.ROM.

Recovering the BIOS from the support CD
To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.
4. Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing
so can cause system boot failure!

Problem with my Asus p5pe-vm motherbord.When i start it,the message CPU uCode loading error appears.What to do...HELPPPPPPP


If your over clocking your CPU settings reset to default. See if you still get the error. If you still get the error than update your bios. There are a couple of way to do this. You can use the software on your Asus CD or you can down load the latest BIOS-Utilities, Afudos BIOS update tool V2.36. Than download the bios file, P5PE-VM BIOS 1501.

Using built-in EZ Flash to flash BIOS Please be informed that not all motherboards support EZ Flash,
please use DOS flash utility to update BIOS if your motherboard does not support EZ Flash; http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?no=960&SLanguage=en-us

Asus bios problem


Unless there is a compelling reason to update the bios it should be left alone. Apparently this is one reason for that sage advice.

Go back to asus, download an older version of the bios and install it. Fortunately you didn't end up unable to boot or you would be buying a new board.

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

Problem after updating asus bios


Your flash utility should have stored a backup of the previous bios image. Fire it up and see if there is a restore function.

If there is not (but I am fairly confident there is) you can order a new bios chip from the manufacturer for $15 or less...with whatever version you would like on it. I find it odd that it would not recognize your processor type.

Typically I would not flash a bios unless there is a problem in the first place.

Asus bios problem


I sounds to me like u flashed the BIOS the wrong way with the wrong update. Try to go back to the old version 0609 ? and have www.drivers.com scan your cpu to find the right BIOS for you.

Damn Asus , it was a hard session ;-)

1. Make an ISO from your original Asus CD denn insert (with isobuster or something) the Bios Firmware 1004 in the main Dir name the file M2N-MX.ROM

2.Burn a Second disc with the 0804 Bios ROM also rename the 0804 Rom to M2N-MX.ROM

3. Go to EZ FLASH with ALT + F2 and then insert the 1004 CD wait till Erasing is ready Then Turn OFF your PC :-) so you crashed the bios thats what you need to run the embeded CrashFRee Tool

4 After you turn your PC on insert the 0804 CD then it flashes the this Rom and we are Happy :-)
