You didn?t give a whole lot of information to go on but if the problem is just slow drive detection you can speed things along by deactivating the IDE drive slots that are unused. For example if you have one hard drive on IDE channel 0 and a CD device channel 1 disable the secondary spots on each channel, it will make the drive detection faster. If that doesn?t help give us some more specifics about your current configuration and we can pickup from there.

How do you fix a corrupted bios?

I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

Failed BIOS update

Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address.

If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive.

Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board

CMOS battery.

The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions.

Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu.

If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced.

Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key.

Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter."

Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu.

Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer.

Then let your computer fully reboot.

The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically.

When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically.

If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.

hope this helps

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.

BIOS cannot detect SATA harddisk

Most motherboards have multiple plug-ins for Sata drives. Try another plug in. This will typically solve this type of issue.

Sata Harddisk Not detected in Post operation

Hi vijjis,
Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.
Here are a few;
