Click this link or copy and paste it in your browser address bar:
http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P5SD2-VM&p=1&ft=3&os=29#P5SD2-VM-0515.zip

In the most recent (top) listing, click the GLOBAL that does NOT say DLM at the end (the second GLOBAL link)
Make note of where the file is being saved!

Unzip the file using winzip or power archiver or some such utility (Depending on your OS, Windows may simply open it for you)

Copy the extracted file P5SD2VM.ROM either to a floppy, or burn it to a CD.
Put the disk with the file on it in the appropriate drive and reboot the system.
The motherboard should now repair itself, and give you the latest bios in the process.

This will fix your system, but I'd get a program called FIX-CIH from http://www.grc.com/fix-cih.htm
Run that program to make sure you aren't infected with the CIH virus (one of very very few viruses that will kill your BIOS like your is) Just to be sure it wasn't a virus that did it.

That should FixYa.

This error can be caused by many things. The first and easiest thing to try is this. Start up your computer and enter the bios by hitting the delete key repeatedly as it begins to turn on. Look at the tabs on the top of the screen and go to the last tab on the right, select it, and choose "load bios default settings" or similiar. Exit and save. If it boots up fine check you are done. If not you will need to remove the side panel of your computer to gain access to the motherboard (unplug the power first). You are going to clear the cmos memory and reset it back to default from factory. To do this you can use the "clear cmos" jumpers, if you are unsure how to do that then simply locate the battery and carefully remove it. The battery is a coin sized disc (like a watch battery). Remove the battery for at least 5 minutes. You can push the power button while it is out to help dissapate any charge left in the circuit. Replace the battey, close your computer case, and plug it in. Now you will need to enter the bios the same way as before and on the first page displayed you will have to reset the date and time. Save and exit your bios and start your computer. If you continue to have a problem your cmos battery on the motherboard may need to be replaced.

Hi, i think you have to renew the cmos battery
So the bios can remember its settings:

BOOT BLOCK COMPATIBLE VERSION VER - ghost2233_19.jpg
The battery is a watch type 2032.
When you have installed a new battery enter the bios
and set the settings for the boot configure.

You can download a manual and drivers here:

Hope this will help you.

How do you flash the BIOS


What happens when you turn the computer on?

If the bios is working enough to enable you to boot from a CD download the new bios from asus along with there AFUDOS.exe flash utility and make a bootable CD and copy both to it.

If the bios is completly none functional you should be getting this msg when you turn the computer on,
Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found

Repeat adinfinitum.
If this is the case you need download the most recent BIOS from compaq and either copy it to a bootable CD if you have this capability or buy a floppy drive for $5 and make a bootable floppy on a working computer and copy this BIOS file to it. Then rename the bios file to A8N32SLI.ROM.

You may not even need make the floppy bootable but I would just in case.

Stick the floppy in the drive turn the computer on and you will see

Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . . .
Floppy found.
Reading file "A8N32SLI.ROM" . Completed.
Start Erasing...
Start programing . . ./
Please turn off your system and power on again to get system back.

and happy days will be here.

BAD BIOS CHECKSUM, STARTING BIOS RECOVERY...


I have seen this be a CMOS battery many times. Also, you can try flashing the BIOS if you continue to have troubles after replacing the battery. You should be able to find that information on the motherboard manufacturer's website.

Everytime i switched on my asus eee pc netbook, this will come out: Boot Block Compatible Version Ver.032 Please do NOT insert any disc into CD-ROM if you want to recovery with an USB device. Bad BIOS...


It sounds like you will have to make a Bootable Flash Drive with your Netbooks latest BIOS and a Flashing program (which ever ASUS uses, i'm not sure). Once you have that then you plug it in to the USB port and start the computer and follow the on-screen instructions. There are a lot of tutorials on the web on how to make a bootable flash drive for your BIOS.

My first thought is that you have a defective motherboard. I've never seen so many things going wrong except when the board was a dud. It sounds like the BIOS ROM or its interface circuitry is bad. If this board is still under warranty you can probably get it replaced. Try the vendor first. If you bought your board from a company like TigerDirect or Newegg, they're pretty good about replacing defective parts. Then check the manual or Asus website to see what you need to do if the vendor won't exchange it. I have used this same board (purchased from TigerDirect) in a couple of systems, and they went together without a hitch.

Once you've got a working motherboard, it should be pretty much smooth sailing with the rest of the assembly. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya! Please post a followup to let me know when you get your system running.

Please Tell me, ASUS P4S8X-MX Problemn


First of all, try to reseat all the cables inside your computer just make sure there aren't any loose connections.

If that doesn't work you will have to reset your BIOS. (Follow the instructions in your motherboard manual.)

If even after resetting the BIOS the problem is not solved, you may have to replace your CMOS Battery.
