New here.
Great forum, seems to have more tech types than most.
Just setting up a all new system.
1st time for me from scratch.
Great learning process.

P4 2.4C
ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe
2 x 512 Kingston
WD 120GB SATA
ASUS V9560VS FX5600
Antec 350 smartblue PS
WinXP Pro

Here is my problem.
All so far seems okay and I have solved all the issues so far from reading and trial and error.
The only thing at this point that is bothering me is that I cannot update/flash the BIOS.
When I follow the ASUS website directions, all I get is ERROR: BIOS has no flash information available.

Any suggestions?
Also, any good websites or books that explain BIOS information and theory in laymans terms?
I like to try and figure things out without asking for help by so far I am stumped on this one.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
David

Welcome to the forums sanature................:D

Is there any particular reason that you want to flash the bios?

I have read the instructions on the Asus website and you need to upgrade to V1008 first and then to V1009.

The upgrade procedure is a bit different for both of these upgrades which can make it more confusing than it needs to be.

If you click the more word on the right on the bios page in the frame for the version you need it will explain somewhat the particular procedure for each upgrade.

If you don't need to upgrade I would recommend you leave well enough alone.

Speedo,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I have gone over the ASUS site many times to make sure I understood what they said.
I tried all kinds of combinations but nothing seems to work.

Reasons to update:

1) My system should be able to.
2) My HD is the one that v1009 talks about.
3) I may need to in the future.
4) The system has not been stressed yet so I may not have a working system even now.
5) I am curious. My girlfriend says "stubborn".
6) The computer is for my mother and I want it as stable as possible.
7) Again, I should be able to.

I plan to try and run some benchmark programs this weekend to stress the system and see what happens.

Any help you might give feel free.
Thanks
David
