In order to update your Bios, you need to have a bootable diskette.
First make sure your 1st boot sequence is Floppy Disc. Place a bootable floppy, if you don't have one just do it by using unused floppy. Right click on 31/2 Floppy (A:), choose Format, then tick the box "Create an MS-DOS Startup Disk". Once finished use this disk to boot your system. After the system completed the boot process, replace your boot disk with your upgrade disk. Type the require command to update your bios.
Good Luck

Reset or Recharge the bois


Hello the homepage is here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/P4i45GV%20R3.0/?cat=Manual

Download the manual, for detailed setup instuctions.

The bios can set to reset by removing the cmos battery on the mainboard and insert it the same way again.

But you have to setup the bios settings, clock, date, boot settings.
The battery can also be renewed, it sometimes rans out of power.
The battery is a cr 2032 3 volts watch type.

Try not to upgrade the bios, unless you 100% sure it`s the right mainboard !!!!!!!!
Flashing the bios with a wrong one, will destroy the mainboard.

Good luck

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=p4i65g

Your mainboard DOES NOT SUPPORT ECC RAM.
This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

I want to update bios of Asrock 775i65GV directly from winxp .I don't have floppy drive or bootable usb drive.plz let me know how can i update bios without floppy?


Hi, here is some info:

  1. Download the BIOS package (WinZip format with .zip file extension). And close all programs.
  2. Unzip and save all files to the same directory of any storage location accessible by the host system. And you should see AFUWIN.EXE, UCORESYS.SYS, UCOREVXD and UCOREW64.SYS.
  3. Click AFUwin.exe
  4. It shows a dialog icon to remind you to close other programs. Click "OK".
  5. This will upgrade your bios while the system is running
These link wil show you how:

http://www.asrock.com/feature/InstantFlash/index.asp

http://www.asrock.com/support/BIOSUI.asp?cat=DOS

Here you can download the bios:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=775i65GV&o=BIOS

I have to remimd you that: Flashing the bios with a wrong one will make
your mainboard unusefull and it will destroy the mainboard.
You have to be 100% sure its the right one.

Here is a free unzip program:

Just click on the exe file for download.

I wish you the best luck.

Need a bios update


To update the Bios, you have to know exactly the Manufacturer, the mainboard model. You have to go to the Mainboard manufacturer Support Site to download the precise Bos file for the mainboard for the update.

A word of advice, updating the bios is not for the "novice" users. There are many precautions you need to heed before doing a bios update. Any errors during Bios update might render your mainboard useless.

How can i update bios of asrock 775vm800. i have downloaded latest file but can't find flash utility on asrock website. ?


before updating your bios make sure there's a valid reason for it... in other words?
1. have you tried other solutions to the problems you may be having
2. is there something in the updated bios that you currenlty need?
3. is there something actually working poorly on your corrent motherboard or built in controlers, sound, usb devices, network controller etc..

when updating the bios there's a rule of thumb that says "if it's not broken don't fix it".. as it may create real problems you may not be able to revert back.

as per installation.. the package with the bios update is an executable file (???.exe) that may come prepackaged in a compressed file (???.rar)... download the file and then use WINRAR or WINZIP a program to unpack the ???.rar file for you to access you exectable file (???.exe) inside the .rar file.

hope it works and good luck..
make sure to back up your data as who knows what may happen...
also.. make sure your computer is not shutdown while your updating/flashing the bios.. this may mess up the board completely!
