    be careful updating a BIOS, if you not necessarily have to do it, leave it!
    a lot can go wrong!

    if you still want to do it:

    1st: enter old BIOS, set boot device priority as follows:

    1st drive a: 1.4 '' floppy disk
    2nd cd/dvd
    3rd usb (if supported by old bios/laptop) or harddisk
    4th harddisk


    then back-up your system.
    to install the new bios:

    get - laptop/ pc with cd/dvd-writer! plus burn program like nero
    - two clean cd-r's( at least),
    - download free-dos 7.0
    - the unpacked new bios-program + installer (it has to be exactly the one fitting your
    computer/ mainboard)


    you will have to use the old ms-dos(no graphic support, just entering commands! )
    (or free-dos, a clone) plus the new bios and it's loader program
    together on a dos-bootable cd!
    still feel like doing it?
    got it all..?

    come again, i'll help you through it, it'll be along process

    O.K.?!!

1.u have downloaded the BIOS but have u confirmed that u have downloaded it with resect to ur motherboard serial no and version.

2. 2nd thing i want to say u that if u have downloaded BIOS which is more of floopy size then u can take it in a pendrive also and if u dont know that BIOS updation can also be done from window also.

3. if u have no choice like updating from windows with pen drive . than carry it in cd.
and update from window .
if not & if u want to update it from BOOT prompt then write those files in cd making that cd startup disk and make changes in BIOS setup .
a. open BIOS setup and go to boot priority option and make CD as first boot device.

b. save the settings and restart the system.
then when it will BOOT from sc run the .exe file from coomand and BIOS will get updated.
restart system and enjoy.

and 1 more important thing u cannot directly run it from window for that u have to run an application which is given in the motherboard cd or download it from ur motherborad site.

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.

But first select you current windows 32 or 64 bit.

Select the file you want and click on global for download.

I have seach in the files and a bios update should solve the problem.

I recomend to use asusupdate to upgade the bios.
If you are unfamiliar with that get a expert to help you.

Download first asus update and install it.
Next download the latest bios version.
Both files needs to be unziped before installation.

Open asus update and choose update bios from file
Select the bios file you just have downloaded typical a bin file
Click next and the program will do the rest.
You can do that while windows is running.

And remember DO NOT flash the bios with a wrong one
It will destroy the mainboard.

Remember to set up the boot settings when the job is done.

Good luck

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.

Bios update. I have .bin file, but flash is not working.Chaintek MPM800-3.


Bios is best flashed from a dos (or similar) floppy disk. If you have a floppy then you need to download a boot floppy (I prefer win 98 ones)
and then copy the bin file and the flash utility to that disk.

Bootdisck.com has a selection

Boot from the floppy (you may have to set your bios to do this)

If you don't have a floppy try borrow a usb floppy drive (you may have to tell your bios about it)

If you have windows working there are flash programs that will work from windows.

As with all bios procedures make sure that you have the CORRECT bios for your board. Other bios's will not work and may end up harming your board

Also ALWAYS make a backup of your original bios (best to copy to a flash drive as soon as you can)

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

BIOS Update Procedure


BIOS Update Procedure
All latest Motherboards today, 486/ Pentium / Pentium Pro etc.,ensure that upgrades are easily obtained by incorporating the system BIOS in a FLASH Memory component. With FLASH BIOS, there is no need to replace an EPROM component. Once downloaded, the upgrade utility fits on a floppy disc allowing the user to save, verify and update the system BIOS. A hard drive or a network drive can also be used to run the newer upgrade utilities. However, memory managers can not be installed while upgrading.
Most pre-Pentium motherboards do not have a Flash BIOS. The following instructions therefore do not apply to these boards. If your motherboard does not have a Flash BIOS (EEPROM) you will need to use an EPROM programmer to re-program the BIOS chip. See your dealer for more information about this.
Please read the following instructions in full before starting a Flash BIOS upgrade: A. Create a Bootable Floppy (in DOS)
•With a non-formatted disk, type the following:
format a:/s
•If using a formatted disk, type:
sys a:
This procedure will ensure a clean boot when you are flashing the new BIOS.
B. Download the BIOS file
•Download the correct BIOS file by clicking on the file name of the BIOS file you wish to download.
•Save the BIOS file and the Flash Utility file in the boot disk you have created. Unzip the BIOS file and the flash utility file. If you don't have an "unzip" utility, download the WinZip for Windows 95 shareware/ evaluation copy for that one time use from _www.winzip.com or _www.pkware.com. Most CD ROMs found in computer magazines, have a shareware version of WinZip on them.
•You should have extracted two files:
Flash BIOS utility eg: flash7265.exe (for example)
BIOS eg: 6152J900.bin (example)
Use the latest flash utility available unless otherwise specified (either on the BIOS update page or in the archive file). This information is usually provided.
C. Upgrade the System BIOS
During boot up, write down the old BIOS version because you will need to use it for the BIOS backup file name.
Place the bootable floppy disk containing the BIOS file and the Flash Utility in drive a, and reboot the system in MS-DOS, preferably Version 6.22
•At the A:> prompt, type the corresponding Flash BIOS utility and the BIOS file with its extension.
For example:
flash625 615j900.bin
•From the Flash Memory Writer menu, select "Y" to "Do you want to save BIOS?" if you want to save (back up) your current BIOS (strongly recommended), then type the name of your current BIOS and its extension after FILE NAME TO SAVE: eg: a:13J900.bin
Alternatively select "N" if you don't want to save your current BIOS. Beware, though, that you won't be able to recover from a possible failure.
•Select "Y" to "Are you sure to program?"
•Wait until it displays "Message: Power Off or Reset the system"
Once the BIOS has been successfully loaded, remove the floppy disk and reboot the system. If you write to BIOS but cannot complete the procedure, do not switch off, because the computer will not be able to boo, and you will not be given another chance to flash. In this case leave your system on until you resolve the problem (flashing BIOS with old file is a possible solution, provided you've made a backup before)
Make sure the new BIOS version has been loaded properly by taking note of the BIOS identifier as the system is rebooting.
For AMI BIOS Once the BIOS has been successfully loaded, remove the floppy disk and reboot the system holding the "END" key prior to power on until you enter CMOS setup. If you do not do this the first time booting up after upgrading the BIOS, the system will hang.
BIOS Update Tips note: 1.Make sure never to turn off or reset your computer during the flash process. This will corrupt the BIOS data. We also recommend that you make a copy of your current BIOS on the bootable floppy so you can reflash it if you need to. (This option is not available when flashing an AMI BIOS).
2. If you have problems installing your new BIOS please check the following:
Have you done a clean boot? In other words, did you follow the above procedure for making a bootable floppy? This ensures that when booting from "A" there are no device drivers on the diskette. Failing to do a clean boot is the most common cause for getting a "Memory Insufficient" error message when attempting to flash a BIOS.
If you have not used a bootable floppy, insure a clean boot either by
a) pressing F5 during bootup
b) by removing all device drivers on the CONFIG.SYS including the HIMEM.SYS. Do this by using the EDIT command.
Have you booted up under DOS? Booting in Windows is another common cause for getting a "Memory Insufficient" error message when attempting to flash a BIOS. Make sure to boot up to DOS with a minimum set of drivers. Important: Booting in DOS does not mean selecting "Restart computer in MS-DOS Mode" from Windows98/95 shutdown menu or going to Prompt mode in WindowsNT, but rather following the above procedure (format a: /s and rebooting from a:).
Have you entered the full file name of the flash utility and the BIOS plus its extension? Do not forget that often you will need to add a drive letter (a:) before flashing the BIOS. Example: when asked for file name of new BIOS file which is on your floppy disk, in case you're working from c: your will need to type a:15j900.bin, rather than 615j900.bin only.

Updating bios, iBuddie A900, Ubuntu.


Go to bootdisk.com and download Driver Free Disk For Bios Flashing. Click the link #1 next to it. It is right there on the front of the page. After that throw a floppy drive in your pc. Run the program I made you download after inserting a floppy. It will create a floppy image. Then take another floppy and copy the 2 bios files you got from the manufacturer ( the exe and the bin file) and copy them to the second floppy. Now boot the pc from the first floppy. Once it says A:\ pop the floppy out and switch it. Dos will continue to run from your system ram. Now make sure the second disk is in. Run the exe in dos. Then once in the exe. enter the name of the bin file. Remember to include the file extension. Back up your original bios file if it gives you the option. It will copy it onto your floppy just incase your new bin file is corrupt. Then you can use this process again if everyting is screwed. Do as the prog says and it will do the rest. Enjoy!
