Remove the CMOS battery will reset the bios ( not sure how you could have installed incorrect bios it would tell you it the wrong bios )

Do I use the jumper to flash a bios on this board?


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.

This motherboard has been working flawlessly for months. Suddenly all entries in device manager starting with "system management bus" have the yellow Bang! symbol. The all say they need the driver...


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.

Asus P3B-F Motherboard


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 flash


Hello,
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.
thanks

ASUS P2B-F


Hi Moin,
Is there a reason you need to know what those numbers are for?
Asus still has the driver software, manual & bios files for the P2B-F MB you listed above.

For the Asus P2B-F MB click here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P2B-F&SLanguage=en-us
Here's a picture of the P2B-F MB.

Neither of those numbers you listed above are chipset numbers.
If this is not what you need. Than rephrase your question.

Well it sounds like the BIOS doesn't detect the hard drive any more. Viruses typically don't get transfered to the mother board/ BIOS itself. They usually are only on the OS. Unless someone flashed the BIOS with the wrong version or something. If that is the case it's either trashed or you need to find the correct patch to flash the BIOS. If this is not the case boot into the BIOS and configure it to see the hard drive.

Asus P5B bios up-date gone bad


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.

Windows 200o pinstallation problem on intel 945 motherboard


I think that this can be bypassed on a per boot basis (press F7) on the boot where it asks you to press f8 if there is any problems. (before win2k flash screen)

you can get round this by updating your motherboard's BIOS

To upgrade your bios you need to follow the online instructions carefully.  (mis flashing your BIOS  can stop your board from loading at all)


FOR BOARD D945GCZ!!! WARNING  IF THIS IS NOT YOUR BOARD DO NOT CONTINUE AS THE FILES WILL BE WRONG!!!!

To upgrade to the latest bios  you first need to upgrade to ver 1788 (you cannot go direct to the latest version.. if your current BIOS Version is already 1788 you can skip this

please read and follow the instructions on this page http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&Inst=Yes&ProductID=2063&DwnldID=9165&strOSs=19&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=eng
one this is completed you can upgrade to the latest version here

Flashed the bios with wrong version PC is unusable


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.
