ROM is the key word here. for some reason, your bios flasher believes your CMOS memory is ROM: read-only memory! I do not know why. if you haven't already, try resetting CMOS (using jumper) and trying again.

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

g) Next insert your Windows7/Vista DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).

h) Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command now:

D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.

i) Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.

J) Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.

Eject the usb drive and select first boot device usb drive or usb hdd in motherboards bios.

enjoy... and please rate this trick.

Hi, I purchased a sandisk 4gb usb flash drive to use as a backup disk but when I tried to format it I got the message "windows unable to complete format". I see that this is a common problem and...


have you tried a different usb port. sometimes the usb port remembers and just says that didnt work last time so no it doesnt work. inserting it into another port will make the pc treat it as a new device. if that doesnt work try accessing it thru the command prompt usually it will be e drive
so go to the run bar in your start menu and type command then press enter the command window should open now just try to access it , type e:\ if it is there it will change to it then type format. just be careful that you are not in c:\ when you type format c:\ has windows and all your stuff on it. hope that helps.

I always have failure to boot and have beep sounds. Already installed asus update v6.10.02, still shows overclocking failed on start up and requests to configure BIOS. My system includes: inno3D-FX5500...


1-Does your computer show any sign of response after power button press?
2-Is your power cable properly connected and have main power switched on both your power supply unit and the wall plug?
3-Is the 20/24-pin ATX power connector has been connected between your motherboard and power supply?
4-Can The standby power LED (Green blue) light up continuously after the mains power is connected? (Note: Both flashing and off are no good here)

Fix 1

(1) Isolate The power going into your system ( i.e. connect your system to the wall plug directly, without sharing the power with any other devices via power extension cable.)
(2) Check if the power supply and power cable functions correctly, and have the input of your power supply set to the correct position (either 100/110V or 220/240V, depending on your country)
(3) Please try replacing your power supply.

Fix 2

1. No POST

1.1 Please clear CMOS to have a try (refer to motherboard manual for details)

1.2 If the problem still persists, please contact your retailer for a check


2. There is error message during POST: BIOS ROM checksum error. Detecting floppy drive A media... Insert system disk and press enter

2.1 If the support CD supplied with motherboard is available

2.1.1 Please restart system and put support CD into optical drive, then the system will recover BIOS automatically using CrashFree utility

2.2 If the support CD supplied with motherboard is not available

2.2.1 Prepare a formated floppy disk, then unzip the BIOS file downloaded from ASUS website into the floppy disk.

2.2.2 Please restart system and insert the floppy disk into floppy drive, then the system will recover BIOS automatically using CrashFree utility
2.3 If it is not helpful after the troubleshooting as the steps 2.1 or 2.2, please clear CMOS( referring to the manual introduction)

Fix 3

Please try the latest BIOS. I recommend you to use AFUDOS to update BIOS. You need to unzip it to get the ROM file.

You should use the command as follows:

AFUDOS /i[biosname]

or, afudos /i A:\BIOSNAME.rom(if the BIOS file is in the floppy disk)

You can store your BIOS into a floppy disk or a hard disk with FAT format. Then, you will be able to use AFUDOS to access the BIOS ROM file.

If it is not convenient for you to use DOS and AFUDOS, you can try to use EZ Flash. You can save the BIOS file into a flash disk then boot the system and enter BIOS, then you can update your BIOS by EZ Flash which is in the BIOS Tools page. Please load the default settings in BIOS after you have succeeded updating BIOS.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

  1. here are the instructions to Flash Your BIOS -
don't forget to read the information that's included and related to flashing in your motherboard's manual. Yes, dig that manual out (or if you can't find it then download it from the manufacturer's website; it's usually available) and read it!
Four of the most common flashers are: AWDFLASH, AMIFLASH, UNIFLASH and AFUDOS (only for ASUS boards). Out of these the UNIFLASH (get it here) is the universal flasher that can usually flash every BIOS; it has awesome compatibility capabilities. Keep in mind that BIOS flashing can be (and is) dangerous, because in the case of a bad flash the data ends up corrupted and your computer won't POST anymore. So I'm recommending wholeheartedly that you use the BIOS flasher that's explained in the manual and provided by the manufacturer of your board. Read the manual, do your research and when you're ready, then and only then proceed to follow the instructions.
After you get your flasher you need the latest BIOS flash file. First find out your motherboard manufacturer's name and your board's exact name and specifications. Visit your manufacturer's website and download the latest non-beta version (betas can be risky and I don't suggest you experiment if you can't fix it if a bad flash happens; we'll discuss that a bit later). These files usually have ".ROM" or ".BIN" extensions. Later on I'm going to call the "latest BIOS file" "newbios.bin."
I'm going to give you examples of how to use UNIFLASH, AWDFLASH, AMIFLASH and AFUDOS. Read them strictly as examples and do not proceed to flash your latest BIOS version before you understand what each option gives and how to use these flashers.
Flashing with UNIFLASH:
A:uniflash.exe newbios.bin
Flashing with AWDFLASH:
A:awdflash.exe newbios.bin /py /sn /cc
Flashing with AMIFLASH:
A:amiflash.exe newbios.bin /A+ /-B /-C /-D /E /-G /I /L /N /R /V
Flashing with AFUDOS:
A:afudos.exe /inewbios.bin
Even though the above commands do work it's always crucial that you read what every command does and understand them. First of all, once you're booted into MS-DOS, execute the flashers without commands and options. Just use a simple "awdflash.exe" or "amiflash.exe"-- then a help screen (which explains all of the available commands and options) will appear. Read that thoroughly before proceeding and follow the instructions.
As a side note, UNIFLASH has a UI (user interface) so it definitely helps beginners. Execute the "uniflash.exe" and the UI will appear and guide you through.

please dont forget to read precautions here

I am unable to update bios of my p5rd1vm mboard it update every time but nothing happen


You need to download AFUDOS and the new ROM for the BIOS (both can be gotten from the Asus website). It is easiest with a floppy disk but since I couldn't find any store that carried them I created a bootable CD (search around at www.bootdisk.com for the different ways to do this) and added AFUDOS and the ROM to it. Once this was burned, I rebooted and booted from the CD and was able to flash the BIOS using the instructions that came with AFUDOS. Of course this is only required if you can't get the EZ Flash utility to work which I could not.

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 :-)
