Step 2: Check your PC/motherboard manufacturer\'s Website for BIOS updates.
Most PC manufacturers handle BIOS updates based on your specific line and model, so head over to your manufacturer\'s support page and check its listings for your PC, because if you download and install a BIOS intended for a different model, your PC probably won\'t work (although most BIOS updaters are smart enough to notice if you try to install them on the wrong hardware). If there is a BIOS update file available, grab it--along with any documentation it comes with, because often warnings and specific instructions are contained in the Read Me docs.
Those of you who assembled your PC yourself will need to look for BIOS updates from your motherboard manufacturer\'s Website. If you don\'t remember your motherboard\'s model number, you can look it up without opening up the case by downloading and running CPU-Z and clicking on the Mainboard tab.
Step 3: Read the included documentation.
Your PC\'s BIOS handles a lot of the nuts and bolts ISO Recorder for Windows XP or the version for Windows 7/Vista) to create a BIOS update CD.Other systems will have you copy a few files to your bootable disk, restart, and open up the BIOS during startup (typically by pressing a specified key for setup options), and change the boot order so your system looks for a bootable USB drive or CD before loading the OS from your hard drive.
Open Advanced while in the bios. Than open Southbridge configuration. Please check bios for Onboard LAN Page 2-24 in you're manual. Set this to [Enabled] If you do not have this enabled the LAN controller will not function. Once enabled in bios save and exit the bios menu. Open windows update when you're system reloads. Click the custom button when windows update open’s. Windows update service will scan you're system and will see you're LAN is enabled. Windows will list drivers for you're on-board built-in LAN controller. Or you can use the Asus CD to install the LAN controller software. If you're LAN controller does not function you may need to add a PCI eithernet card.
99% of all bios don't need to be flashed or updated. Unless you have a specific problem with your bios and you go into the manufacturer's website and can read about the bios updates and see your problem as one of the ones that the bios update fix, don't update your bios. It's not going to make your computer run any better, it's not going to cure all the problems you have. About half the time it just messes up your computer or can ruin it. A lot of motherboard manufacturers have come up with Windows based programs to flash the bios but if they fail then you have to go back to the old method and they usually require having a floppy disk which most computers don't come with anymore. If you're one of those people that want to play around with your computer and do a little experimenting you're must better off to go format your harddrive, wipe it clean and start all over. Then you can go find all your new driver updates, software updates, find all the files you just deleted off your computer cause you forgot to backup before you formatted it. It's a lot more fun than flashing and updating your bios because your computer will still work when you get done. Sorry dude if the pin reset doesn't work the only option is possibly putting a new bios chip on the motherboard but I haven't seen one of those in years. Not sure they even still make them detachable and you'd have to find a motherboard to get one off of.
