What are the instructions for flashing BIOS?


Hello use auto detect here to find the right mainboard:

http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en

Download asus update, this is the easyest program to upgrade the bios, while windows is running.

Install first asus update:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/ASUS-Update-Utility.shtml

When the mainboard is found, select download, and select your windows system.
Open the bios folder, and download the latest bios version.
Unzip the bios file.
Run asus update, and select update bios from file, and select the bios file, in the folder you just have downloaded ( the bin file )

Be very carefull when you upgrade the bios, because a power loss will damage the mainboard, while the upgrade process is running.

You also have to setup the bios settings, when the job is done.
You have to select F1 or F2 to enter the settings.

If any doubt download the manual.

Good luck

Hello download here at asus:

http://www.asus.com/support/Search-Result/?keyword=m2n68-am

Select download and your windows system.

Open the bios file folder.

Click on global for download.

Unzip the file.

Make also sure it`s the right mainboard, because flashing the bios with a wrong one, WILL destroy the mainboard.

Use the asus update utility, to upgrade the bios, while windows is running, for a safe upgrade.

Good luck

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.

Motherboard BIOS softwere for update


The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.

On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.

On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.

This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.

Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.

Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.

Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
possibilities:

1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.

2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.

3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.

This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.

===
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
with it.

1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!

2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!

N.B.
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.

If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,

the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.

(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

Good luck,
Please rate my answers,

BIOS 1004 cpu not support


I got it :-)

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 :-)

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios? I don't have a floppy disk, can I use a cd rom?


The real question is why and truly if you need to upgrade your BIOS. You should avoid unless you have a specific reason to do so. Secondly you can use alternate methods to upgrade such as a bootable CD, which you can use several programs to create. UltraISO is one and a free trial is available.. The resulting disk will start on boot the same as the OS disk would self start. You should also check your Boot sequence to ensure the read of the bootable CD as priority 1. The bios update needs to occur in Dos, rather than through Windows. Look here for exact instructions fron ASUS:
http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?root=198&SLanguage=en-us
And look here for Bios update files:
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us. Good Luck!
