PC don´t boot after upgrading BIOS

I was upgrading the BIOS using the Asus EZFlash Utility but it failed to confirm the change, after that the aplication closed and it won´t turn on again, then I reboot the PC ans that´s when I get the blank screen and no boot; the fans in the pc power up but you don´t hear any beep. In the motherboards manual I read the when something like that happens you need to service your system. What does it mean?, Is there someway to fix this myself?, somebody have fixed this?. Thank you for your help!

Have you tried to reset the bios by removing the battery for around 10 minutes then putting it back in??? i would try this first.

If this is unsuccesful then i really suggest you have burned your bios doing the upgrade... you might be out of luck on this one

Select download and your windows system.

Open the bios file folder.

Click on global for download.

Unzip the file.

Make also sure it`s the right mainboard, because flashing the bios with a wrong one, WILL destroy the mainboard.

Use the asus update utility, to upgrade the bios, while windows is running, for a safe upgrade.

Good luck

anaging and updating your BIOS
The following utilities allow you to manage and update the motherboard

ASUS EZ Flash
(Updates the BIOS using a floppy disk during POST.)
2.
ASUS AFUDOS
(Updates the BIOS in DOS mode using a bootable floppy
disk.)
3.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
(Updates the BIOS using a bootable floppy
disk or the motherboard support CD when the BIOS file fails or gets
corrupted.)
4.
ASUS Update
(Updates the BIOS in Windows
®
environment.)
Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to K8NVM.ROM.

Recovering the BIOS from the support CD
To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.
4. Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing
so can cause system boot failure!

Failure in boot up after updating p4xp-x


Hi rouzbeh_be20, you can try clearing the bios jumper & removing the cmos battery. (Do not forget to re-set the bios jumper back to normal).
Check the battery for 3 volts DC. If the battery is less than 3 volts DC replace the battery. You can call Asus & ask for a replacement bios chip. Your board was made back in 2003 but Asus can flash a bios for you. The last time I ordered a bios from Asus it cost me $5.00 US not including shipping. You can call Asus California M-F 8:00AM. to 5:00PM. PST. At ( 510-739-3777 ). Only the CA site can order a bios for you.
Tech support live chat; http://livesupport.asus.com/
Write down the SN# found on the pink parallel port (In side the case). Asus will want that information.
Having the bios chip replaced is the cheapest way around this issue.

Good luck rouzbeh_be20!
Thank you for using fixya.

Bios update problems P4S800-MX


An .exe file isn't a .rom file. You downloaded the flash program (the program used to flash new data to the ROM), you didn't download the flash data. Look on the site again, or look to see if there's another file - P4S800MX.ROM - to extract.

Motherboard BIOS softwere for update


The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.

On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.

On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.

This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.

Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.

Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.

Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
possibilities:

1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.

2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.

3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.

This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.

===
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
with it.

1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!

2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!

N.B.
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.

If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,

the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.

(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

Good luck,
Please rate my answers,
