''unknown cpu detected,bios update is required to unleash its pow


Ensure that you download the BIOS update from the ASUS Website - nowhere else - and that it is for your exact motherboard model.

Instructions are here:

I am a bit surprised that they still require you to copy the files to a floppy/USB and boot into DOS. Last time I updated my Phoenix BIOS the utility ran from Windows. But anyway, that seems to still be the procedure for ASUS boards.

Same problem


You need to flash the bios to a newer version for this cpu to be supported by your motherboard. Your descriprtion says asus so go to www.asus.com; click on the support link; lookup your specific board model #; select the operating system you are running. Download the latest bios file and follow the directions on the download site for proper flashing. Once you have flashed the bios everything should identify properly and allow you to continue setup. Hope this helps.

Asus bios problem


Unless there is a compelling reason to update the bios it should be left alone. Apparently this is one reason for that sage advice.

Go back to asus, download an older version of the bios and install it. Fortunately you didn't end up unable to boot or you would be buying a new board.

Update bios asus


Here is the link to the product support and downloads for your board. Other users state that you'll need a bios version of at least 1238, if there is a more recent one obviously grab that one.

NOTE: As of this writing the ASUS site is kinda bogged down so you may need to retry your download later.

The other thing you may want to do is reset the cmos (you may want to try this prior to updating the bios to see if you can get it to post).

Problem after updating asus bios


The first thing I would try is to clear CMOS. Either set the jumper on the motherboard to do this, or even remove the battery, and wait half an hour or so. When installing a new CPU, and even RAM, you should always clear CMOS.

that would be ok. as long as youd remeber what you've save on the floppy and what specific BIOS update your going to install. but always be cautious, double and triple check if your doing and installing the correct thing...

Problem after updating asus bios


Your flash utility should have stored a backup of the previous bios image. Fire it up and see if there is a restore function.

If there is not (but I am fairly confident there is) you can order a new bios chip from the manufacturer for $15 or less...with whatever version you would like on it. I find it odd that it would not recognize your processor type.

Typically I would not flash a bios unless there is a problem in the first place.

Asus bios problem


I sounds to me like u flashed the BIOS the wrong way with the wrong update. Try to go back to the old version 0609 ? and have www.drivers.com scan your cpu to find the right BIOS for you.

Asus m2n-e sli Cpu changed settings on boots up


I could not find BIOS ver. 1302 for the M2N-E Mb. What I do know: Your dual core 4200 showing up as "unknown". Asus says:
This is because the BIOS does not have the relative CPU uCode to support this processor. Please simply update your BIOS to version 0902 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0902 can be downloaded from the link below:
http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socketAM2/M2N-E%20SLI/0902.zip

Once you cpu shows up correctly, chances are that your over clocking will work and the bios will stop sending you back to change your settings.
