Most likey you will have to use the "floppy" (or usb), FLASH utility.

Your vender website should be able to provide you this via a download.. alas, if you do not have any other means to access the internet, try using a public one (ie; library, kinko's, or a University or local coffee shop (pay as you surf), to download the "utility" *and the most recent BIOS file.

Once you have both. on the same device (floppy, usb, or cdrom), you will want to "power on" your unit with that disc in the drive, it should be able to boot off of that disk (with the flash/utility software), and most of them will immediately start the "flashing" of your BIOS with the new flash image.,.

once finished, (usually within a few minutes), remove the disc, and reboot (either hard or soft reboot).. you should be able to enter your new BIOS and re-configure it for anything, or at least allow you to boot back into your system. Hope this helps.

This is a very common experience among "BIOS Updates" when they crash. I personally have had to do this procedure on my ASUS M/B quite a few times, :) (due to improper Overclocking:)

But be careful *Not to try and "FLASH" to many times without success, or even to many times "in succession" (one after another), that has many times lead to "burning out" your BIOS ROM (chip), and you would have to order a replacement chip from the vendor, (i speak from experience on this one;), there usually about $15-$20.. If all else fails, it's not such a bad idea to order 'an extra' BIOS ROM, just in case this scenario develops again, and your stuck in the a inopportune time, just a thought :)

Let me know if you are still looking for help.

Cheers, and good luck.

Quick ? for U, I have a SHUTTLE and I am Trying to put the OS onto it but it wont complete the whole process....have u heard in order to download XP or newer u must use a floppy disk to download OS on to A...

You would need about 1000 floppies to store Windows XP. You need to go into the BIOS and select the primary boot drive to optical(cd). Then restart with the windows disc in the CD drive. Floppies haven't been needed to install the OS since Windows 98.

It sounds as if you have a failed or failing hard drive. Replace the HDD and then go for a re-install.

When I will going to install win xp(sp2) with sata harddisk its show no dsrive installed on your system

The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

How to install

To install Windows place the Windows disc in the cD drive and turn the pc on. If nothing happens try pressing F1 2 F8 or F12 as the pc is starting these may open the BIOS and allow you to change it to BOOT from CD.
Restart and allow Windows to install from CD automatically. this will also work for PUPPYLINUX if you are trying to install that instead o expensive Windows.

If you want to install a program, then simply open its CD and find the file SETUP.exe or AUTORUN.exe and double click on them this should start the install process.

Computer restarts on shutdown

If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.

  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
Thanks & Regards

Message from asus live update: please install asus winflash first if you want to update bios. my nb asus f3jp

Asus liveupdate, from everything Ive read, is very unreliable... Dont try to rely on it, try to go to the asus website if you need a bios update and take care of it there. theyll have read me's on how to do it-- it's not that hard, but you should have a good reason to update the bios as if you do it wrong, you could be in more trouble than you need.

Good luck!
