The jumper is there to restore bios to default settings. Flashing a bios is a dangerous procedure and only to be done when you are fully aware of the consequences should something go wrong. If you lose power or something goes wrong during the procedure you just might wind up with a dead motherboard! Go to manufacturer web site and follow instructions religiously and cross your fingers! Unless it is absolutely necessary for you to flash it, I would leave it alone as I have with all my witches.
It seem your current version "LF94510J.64T.0000.2009.0123.1105" doesnt have any BIOS ID's which is required to upgrading. Where '0000' should have any version number. I recommend using DOS environment when upgrading BIOS, this is the safe way flashing BIOS..so download file LF94510J.86A.0278.BI.ZIPhere. Extract all files on USB flash disk which is bootable flash disk. Run files executable on the command prompt and follow the instructions..
This motherboard may need to have the firmware in the bios re-flashed with the latest version. All functions in the motherboard need the bios. If the bios is corrupted, you will have problems similar to what you have stated. Look up the bios on the Internet for the version of motherboard and the bios. Re-flashing with the wrong version will ruin the motherboard's bios. Be sure you have the correct version and re-flash the bios. Then try the board.
Download a manual from the ASUSTEK website, I have read many forums related to issue's with ram and from what I have learned with the ASUS boards is that dependind on the bios and the model, each slot, for some unknown reason can only recoqnize a maximum of 128MB per DIMM slot? My board has 4. For example, no matter what I install for Ram the motherboard will only read 512, some of the forums on ASUSTEK reccomend reflashing the bios with an updated one, but now, with the age of these computers i find it difficult to find a Bios upgrade. It is ridiculas, the Bios should come from the manufacturer ready to handle the maximum Ram of 1GB, which is my case with the ASUS P3B-F Pentium 3 with a 850MHZ processor.?????????
BIOS updates should only be done by certified technicians, if you put the wrong version on your system, lets say even 1 earlier version, there is potential that your computer may never start again.
I would contact Acer, is your machine still under warranty?
firstly i want to tell you that every motherbord bios has a unique program to control the devices.
it this bios is fit on another board casing then you try to firstly run the mother board with old bios. then copy the bios code by any flashing tool and then remove this bios and fit the dead mother board bios in the casing then flash it and then update it which file you copy the old one.
then your motherboard perhaps go on with the dead motherboard bios.
That Flash EEPROM in a socket (so it can be removed) or is it fixed to the board. Either way, look on the Internet for someone who can write Bios for you. They'll tell you what they require, like Board, Bios, Bios Version, then if you have a socket, you can order it and just wait till it received, otherwise you'll be shipping your motherboard out to be reprogrammed.
Look at this too.
You need to be able to reprogram you Bios from another computer. Via some link, like USB, if the Board you have supports that. You'll need a kit. Where do you get one? I do not know.
Hi, I dont like your chances a lot.
Next to the cmos battery you will find a set of jumper pins [3 pins] move the jumper from where it is set onto the next pin and leave it there for at least 10 seconds then replace it back in its orriginal position. This will reset all the orriginal bios settings. If the update flash you have done doe's not allow this to reset, get onto the ASUS web site and ask for tech help, the response may be slow but this is your only option other than another mobo.
