    For mrlok0,

    The M963GV (V3.3A) Motherboard has embedded Real256E Graphic engine, 64Mb share memory. (Shared from your system memory). Since your intergrated video in onboard (part of the motherboard) you must have system memory installed. Since your system memory is shared you can test your memory by downloading a free program that will test your memory. The program is called Memtest86 found here at this link.

    http://www.memtest.org/ Please scroll down the page till you see: ** Memtest86+ V1.70 (01/14/2007) ** typed in RED.

    Pick your flavor. Each download is designed to run off a bootable floppy or you can make a bootable CD from an ISO file. In your case however you will have to install an AGP video card to get video. They are not pricy anymore. Or you might be able to borrow one. Any of these listed on the link below would be just fine & you may not need to re-enable your on board card. After you get display you'll need to enter your bios ans change the video settings to AGP. Save & exit. Still run the memory teaster & check your memory. All other driver updated are listed iat the link above for jimisstrat.

    AGP card link:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/...|c:318|&Sort=0&Recs=10

    Hope this helps!

Hello,the only way to fix this problem is to prepare original bios file at your USB stick.But first you need to made this USB bootabile(put some universal BIOS fasher software from internet),than put the original file (bios)inside.when its finished try to find another PC (correct),pick up your BIOS chip,(the case of BIOS must be the same as another correct PC!!!!!!!!! IT IS VERY IMPORTANT),than turn on correct PC,run bios ,set USB stick as 1st bootabile device,save changes and restart PC,after that you will see universal Bios mask,you have choice to run bios file you already put on USB stick,DO NOT START FLASHING BIOS!!!!! PICK UP THIS BIOS CHIP FROM HIS CASE,THAN PUT YOUR BIOS CHIP (CHANGE CHIPS UNTIL THIS PC IS STILL WORKING)press enter and this PC will flash your BIOS with correct file.When its finished TURN OFF THIS PC(dont restart).Pick up your bios chip,and put it on your moterboard place for Bios,also put the bios chip from regular (correct)PC to its place,and you are finished.start PC you are using to fix problem ,just to check everything's OK,THAN TURN ON YOUR PC,IT MUST BE WORKING,9its look like risky job but dont worry its ok
I already fix lot of this problems,only check-dont short pins of chip,or turn chip at wrong direction,best luck :)

1005ha bios update usb


Upgrading BIOS is dangerous and can cause fatal damage to your PC. If you are aware of that and decide to take this risk, then continute. 1. Visit http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us, search 1001HA and choose DOS as operating system. Download latest bios rom file.
2. Save and extract the downloaded file. You will get a rom file named like "1301.rom" 3. Format a usb pen drive to FAT-16 partition. In my case I used a 32 MB SD card which came with my old Kodak camera, and I used a SD card reader that PC can see it as a usb disk. Copy 1301.rom to its root folder and rename it to 1005HA.ROM. The reason for renaming it to 1005HA.ROM is that EZ Flash on this 1001HA netbook looks up rom with this name. If EZ flash failed saying trying to find a rom file with another name, just shutdown the netbook and rename your rom file to the required name and try again. 4. Plug in the usb pen drive and reboot the netbook. Make sure that during the ASUS splash screen, press ALT+F2. Then EZ Flash will run automatically and try to locate the usb drive and read from file 1005HA.ROM (in my case). 5. It takes around one minute for me to upgrade everything. DO NOT TURN OFF OR EVEN TOUCH YOUR NETBOOK DURING UPGRADE. Read the messages on the screen and when it says you can press the shutdown button, you can turn off your system. 6. Turn on your netbook again and enter BIOS to check if the BIOS version is up to date.

Reset bios without running hard disk first


2 options:

  1. create a bootable cd with the bios rom file, and a dos based flash utility (included with bios download). Boot to cd and flash.
  2. Connect a usb floppy drive and create bootable floppy. Copy rom file and flash utility to floppy, boot to floppy and flash......option 2 may be easier if you are not familiar with creating bootable cd's.......Let me know if this helps or not.

BIOS Update, need BIOS-Flash software


typically their should be instructions specific to your motherboard model at the manufacturers website. You will need to have downloaded the new bios.rom file and a small application that does the flash itself.

Usually you wont ever need a bios update unless dealing with enthusiast hardware which is brand new hardware that has just been sold and needs updates regularly.

Bad bios checksum


You need to go to the website of whoever made the motherboard and get the BIOS flash utility and the BIOS binary file to update your BIOS. Make sure you get the right one, as using the wrong one can render your motherboard worthless. The BIOS file has to be the exact match. There is no such thing as close in this situation.
If you are not sure of the exact make and model, get te free Belarc Advisor from http://www.belarc.com
The BIOS chip holds information about your motherboard hardware. It is reprogrammable. It uses what is known electrically erasable read only memory. This is also called Flash memory. Reprogramming is called flashing. When you flash the BIOS, all data is erased, then the new data is written. The flash utility will most likely allow you to save the old contents, but you might have an extremely tough time recovering from an improper flash. You'll also probably need a couple of floppy disks, one of which may have to be bootable. If you need a bootable floppy disk, you can get an image file from http://www.bootdisk.com.

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

Flashing the bios


1. Download the BIOS flash utility.
2. Download the BIOS rom file.
3. Format a floppy drive, with system files so that it is bootable.
4. Copy the utility and the rom file to the floppy drive.
5. Boot from the floppy drive.
6. At the c:/ prompt enter the name of the flash utility file followed by the name of the rom file. Example: awd816a.exe romfile.rom
7. Let the program run. Do not turn off your computer until prompted to do so.

Please be noted you can NOT use DIMM DDRII 1~2 (DDR2 533/400) and DIMM DDR1~2 (DDR 400/333) simultaneously. Only use either DDR2(533/400) or DDR(400/333) memory modules! (You should check the spec's of the other board before inserting memory that may not be supported). (You can damage the memory)

WinXP can't start.


it maybe that the bios chip is faulty or stuck in a loop as what it seems to be doing is trying to run the bios flash programme. Next time the pc boots up press F2 or Del and in the cmos settings see if the time and date is correct, if not correct it and look in all the menus for something similair to bios flash utility updates and dissable it if enabled or select off, save settings and exit for a reboot. Hopefully it will stop, that's if you can get into the bios without this programme flashing up. If you cannot stop it you will need to reset the bios and the only way may be to remove the bottom compartments of the laptop and look on the motherboard for the cmos flat round shaped battery and remove it for 10 minutes or so and then replace and try again, or only other option is to speak to sony technical as a bios problem is a serious one and cannot sometimes be resolved other than a motherboard replacement i'm afraid.
