Hi everyone. Ive been recently having problems with my comp crashing and giving me that blue screen for the memory dump. it seems to have stopped but now my comp wont recognize my CPU. I have an Asus A8N32-SLI deluxe mobo and a fx-60 cpu. When i start up my comp it shows a screen that says that the bios are unable to recognize CPU then it gives me 2 options; the first one is to enter setup where i can change the bio settings and the 2nd is to load the default settings and start windows. When i go into the bios to change things and save, i cant get into windows without selecting the 2nd option. Ive also tried to use the bio update but it gives me a messege that states "Unable to find the file on the remote server." I ran a program called cpu-z and it was able to recognize the cpu i have. I am completely stumped on what to do. All help would be appreciated. thanks.

"Unable to find the file on the remote server." What
kind of bios flashing program is this? Can't you find
a bios from Asus which runs in DOS? You just need
a bin file and a flasher. Put these on a DOS boot
floppy and update the bios. A bios update should
solve the issue.

Download the latest rom and DOS flasher -

http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/AS...SLI%20Deluxe/1405.zip

http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/AS...b/flash/AFUDOS219.zip


Get the manual -

http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/AS...280_A8N32-SLI_Dlx.pdf


In Section 4.1, page 69, Managing and Updating your bios -

Use the AFUDOS method.

Create a DOS boot floppy, as the manual specifies.

Copy the rom and flasher to the boot disk.

Boot off the floppy.

To make a copy of the old rom, execute -

afudos /oOLDBIOS1.rom


To flash the bios with the new rom, execute -

afudos /iA8N32-SLI-ASUS-Deluxe-1405.ROM


Read section 4.1. of the manual, thoroughly, before flashing your bios.

Thanks for the reply. A few questions: How do i get into DOS? Can i use a cdr as my bootable format? What program do i need to flash the bios? Also, i assume i need to unzip the file right? Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the reply. I actually got it to load the bios from the asus update from the support cd that came with it. The utility has the option to update the bios from a file, and it worked. It looks like thing are back to normal. I really appreciate your help. Thanks!
