Hello there.

Please click
and select Bios then Bios utilities. On here you can update your bios. Please be aware this is not something to be taken lightly, If done incorrectly your motherboard will fail to function, so please be careful and read the information before doing anything.

Hope this helps.

    Hello again. I noticed a comment even though the solution was rated already.

    From your error its possible you have faulty RAM (memory) or more likely the Asus PC probe software has developed a fault, this software is used to read your computer's temperature and power.

    I suggest uninstalling the software from the add/remove software area of the "Control Panel".

    Then re-install the software either from the installation CD that came with the computer/motherboard, or download the latest version from Asus's website at the web address i posted above, under "utilities" called "Asus PC Probe".

    As for the bios updating, i would be hesitant about flashing your computer bios if you are unsure of the steps required to do so, if you haven't added any new hardware to the system and its erroring now, its most likely a software problem.

    Hope this helps.

I get a pb with BIOS. I change the battery of BIOS and now I can not even acceded to BIOS : DEL doesn't run. I change jumper for ten seconds : not better DEL doesn't run. Yesterday the bios charged...

1 or 2 things going on here, I'm assuming the jumper was your reset jumper (Please refer to your motherboard manual for location).

Assuming you have reset the jumper and no Bios is either a dead CPU or Motherboard. You can normally test if the motherboard is bad if this does not beep (again make sure you speaker on JPR Configuration is correct if no motherboard manual please refer to URL :

System failed due to cpu overclocking. Not setup for overclocking in the bios.

Reboot, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Choose "Load Default Settings".
This will "undo" any overclocking of your motherboard and of your CPU.

I have bios version 1008 on the computer. Should i update the bios version to the newest one? The fans are always running, they never shut down

Actually if your MOBO are working fine as of now no need to update the BIOS version. Updating BIOS version may affect some parts of MOBO so no need to update the BIOS version.

Upgrade from P4 2.4GHz to P4 3.0GHz Prescott on P4P800

Sounds like the new CPU is bad. The only other thing that it could be is if there are some settings changed in CMOS. I would clear the CMOS and if that does not fix it then the new CPU would be bad.

looks like you limited to the p4 Prescott, this is a p4 list of the cpu support from asus. I also looked at their bios update page and found no bios improvement. if you can move to the 775 platform ,you can move from p4. otherwise, the p4's are still  good . I had the cpu that is the 2nd one down. 3.2ghz oc'd to 3.8ghz full time with a max of 4.0ghz on air[775 platform] quad-pumped gave me a 1001.3mhz FSB
