Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
I flashed the bios with the latest bios v1004 from the dl section of the asus site but during post the error "cpu not support comes up" and cannot flash to a lower version as the current bios prevents this.i reflashed with the same version to no avail...is it possible this bios is not intended for this motherbord as the file name is M2NX1004.zip
cpu: amd athlon x2 6000+
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 :-)

1. How to flash original bios from motherboard cd
put original drivers cd into, restart hold "Alt Gr" and "F2"
to start EZ-flash utility on board then it will load auto the cd
and will instal original bios rom from motherboard driver cd named M2N-MX.ROM
2. Downgrade, upgrade bios install Asus Update utility for win7
( for xp instal xp version from motherboard cd) stick to options downgrade, or not if upgrade and flow the installation work for downgrade !!!
3. Upgrade AFUDOS Upgrade only, sing AFUDOS, use rw cd/dvd using nero burning rom utility create boot cd or dvd and drag fowder bios containing files AFUDOS and M2N number.ROM then burn the cd. Restart and boot from cd starting msdos comand: (F:\ ) pres enter, (cd bios) enter, (dir) enter to see the files, to flash (afudos /iM2Nnumber.ROM) for more info see youtube videos
4. How to downgrade from protected from last bios M2NMX1004 is protected from downgrade, you already have installed the protected rom, burn boot cd or dvd from part 3 on my exponential with the same rom and reinstall the same rom but when you see erase and rewrite start cut the power from cable or back power button then you will corrupt the bios and using original board driver cd into start and press Alt GR and F2 to start EZ-flash utility on board, then it will load auto the cd and will install original bios rom from motherboard driver cd named M2N-MX.ROM
5.After that use new Asus Update utility for win7 from softpedia.com is compitable witw win7 to downgrade, upgrade bios my DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2900 MHz 5600+ work ferfec with version bios M2N-MX0302, all other version have usb problem with linux storage no usb 2.0 detected cannot transfer faster !

I am having the same problem. I have a AMD 6 gig and flashed my bios to ver 1004. I can not get to a post to select boot from CD and get the CMOS checksum bad for CPU supported. Unable to get to a F12 to select boot option to try and use the flash utility? Any Ideas?
