Updating bios asus ez flash

Worked for me and I have seen several other positive posts. If you have the support CD Rom that came with the motherboard look in the root of the disk using explorer or whatever. I'm not exactly sure why it worked, but it's a relatively simple solution and well worth a shot.

BTW, When I flash with from DOS it works just fine. BTW, this is completely inexcusable on the part of Asus. I then erased the CMOS RTC RAM data using a jumper on the mother board. I shut it down, reset the jumper and booted up again with no problem.

updating bios asus ez flash-81

The update i download as 1017 Cannot find EZ-Flash only AWDFLASF116 I've tried taking out the bios battery - No Luck Clearing the Cmos - No Luck Taking out the one stick of Ram - No Luck Could I use a USB PEN as a floppy disk with the updates..? BIOS file will load automatically, and tell you to reboot when it's completed. The most reliable flash procedure for the majority of ASUS boards is "AFUDOS" via a bootable floppy. but not documented ANYWHERE in the relevant section of the manual i also took out some of the ram (single stick left in dimm b1 (third slot from the processor), but i have no idea if that helped i had originally "upgraded" (ha!

Guest (not verified) – Wed, 08/23/2006 – I would not recommend using the EZ flash program at all. What you do is rename your downloaded BIOS to the EXACT SAME NAME as the EZ flash BIOS, complete with the . If you do not have a floppy then the BIOS file you want renamed to "original EZflashname. If you do not have the recovery disk for the board you should ask others via the ASUS usenet group to check their CD for the correct BIOS file name. killed) the bios in the hope of improving my stability with 2x1gig low latency sticks, but meh!

Install a working BIOS via EZ Flash or AFUDOS and then put the 2nd DIMM back in (after switching off). SLanguage=en-us&model=A8V Deluxe Apparently the problem is that the BIOS on the support CD is too old to run certain newer CPUs in dual-channel mode, that's why removing one of the DIMMs helps (sometimes).

How do you flash the bios when the floppy drive wont work because I cannot get into the Bios menus could I use a cdrom to flash the bios. I have all the updates from the Asus Website ready to update the bios for my AMD 3700 SAN DIEGO 939 socket Cpu. Boot up the computer with the CD in, Press Alt F2 during the Bios POST. (other status messages will follow until completion) 5. Do not use the win based flash utility, BIOS should not be flashed from a windows enviroment. i only stuffed up my flash this very evening, and miraculously google led me to your words of wisdom written merely days earlier let me add that if you possess the original a8v cd that comes with the mobo, you can boot with it in the cd whilst pressing alt f2 and the miracle of rebirth is yours by just sitting back and marvelling.....

My system is: MB: ASUS P5N32-E SLI Memory: 1G X 2 OCZ DII800 OCZ2P800R22GK (not on the ASUS QVL list) CPU: Intel Core2Duo E6600 BIOs upgrade from version 08xx (I think) to version 1503 I used the ASUS EZ Flash 2 as my poison. The uncompressed file was placed directly on a floppy.

I restarted, entered BIOs, and launched EZ Flash 2. The prompt said the system will restart in 5 seconds (I think). Put the update on a USB stick, select "EZ Flash" or "Easy Flash" from the UEFI boot menu and do the update from within this program.(some might not be releated to the task you are trying to accomplish).Also there is the possibility that there doesn't exist a DOS-based update tool, or the tool is not compatible to Free DOS (and earlier versions of MS DOS) and has to be run from a Win9x boot disk (I remember facing such a problem with a 2011 model Pro Book and some service technician tools).I thought it may be a good idea for future reference to use my favourable Google status to tell the world about my experiences flashing the BIOS on my Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard. In an effort to make the computer as up to date as possible, I decided to upgrade the BIOS. Asus has a unique feature on their boards that will let you flash directly from floppy or cd, without booting into dos first. Having no access to my floppy drive because of the buggy beta bios, I decided to use the CD that came with the motherboard and flash the BIOS version that's on it. Flashing went as planned (I'ld even say it went surprisingly well), but unfortunately the machine would not boot, not beep, not do anything...This subject may be stale but to those who googled to here I will explain. The least they could do is provide an easily accessible alternative to what is quite obviously a faulty utility (a utility that is included in their basic software suite, no less). I then tried booting from the DVD that came with the MB. I checked the BIOs version in EZ Flash 2 and the version I upgraded to was indeed installed.
