Question about ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard
Ok heres the problem,
Was running a dual core conroe e6600 on this morther board with bios 0701 which looks to be the oldest bios that would run a dual core, this was pre installed when bought. So i just got a quad core QX9650 and needed to update the bios as when i popped processor into the motherboard and tried to boot it. It would only get as far as the nram or vram calculating(cant remember which one). So i downloaded the latest firware from the asus website which is bios version 2704. I stuck the new bios onto a disc and let it boot with Use built-in EZ Flash on the asus motherboards. All went fine and completed, so it went to re-boot but the pc only booted as far as a blank black screen and thats it wont go any further. So can anyone help, Please
thanks in advance
For those interested, I have experience the same problem. I did reboot a couple of times after the BIOS upgrade without a problem. I decided to swap parts (CPU, Memory, etc.) and when I opened up my computer, the CPU fan was not running. I took the CPU out and guess what, the PINS were all melted to the PGA775 slot. Bummer my computer didn't tell me there was a problem ... Not knowing what else is bad, I will be replacing my motherboard and CPU. By the way, the CPU is Intel and the Fan is Intel (recommended with the purchase of the CPU).

Brophylad,You sound like you know your way around a PC so please do not be offended by the suggestions below that you may already be aware of to begin with.
Use the PC your are using to communicate with us and download the older bios and create a bootable floppy or CD, Nero's bootable image is best as it recognizes NT partitions, and try flashing with the old bios. Otherwise, when I've had a board on the bench with this issue I've had to get a replacement bios chip which is rather easy to replace or Asus has replaced the board for me under warranty or for a rather fair price to replace with a refurbished board.
Anyway, try this again: remove the button battery and turn off the rocker switch on your Power Supply and remove the power cable. Leave all this disconnected for several minutes. Re-insert the battery, reattach the power cable and turn the rocker switch back on and attempt a bootup. If this fails to get you to a bios setup screen the CMOS chip has failed, permanently or is glitched, with the later being my guess.
Phone Asus at 502-995-9883 and have the serial number for your board, located on the inside of the case on top of the parallel port socket. I've phoned them many times over the years and they are quick. They'll most likely will give you a post bypass keyboard sequence if there is one for your model or give you a RMA immediately. I've never found Asus slow to replace a board from the RMA department.
The above phone number is for tower boards, for notebooks (they make great notebooks and sell white boxes as notebooks) call 510-739-3777 x5110.
Best Regards and good luck,

After a bios update like this one, remove the battery from the motherboard and remove the power cable from the power supply. Leave out for a few minutes, then replace the battery and the plug and try to reboot.
