1. Download FTK for Windows from here and unpack it.
2. Download 3603 BIOS file from asus.com, unpack it, rename to bios.bin and copy to Win32 or Win64 folder unpacked at step 1.
3. Go to Win32 or Win64 and run merefl.bat file as Administartor using right-click meny. If you see green message "FPT Operation Passed", go to step 4, if not - post a screenshot with error message here.
4. Run poweroff.bat as Administrator, your PC will be powered off and powers on automatically. Go to BIOS setup and check if your settings are back.
5. Report.
You can read more about FTK, BIOS bugs and stuff in my ASUS P8xxx BIOS recovery guide on [H].

Awesome guide man thanks for that. I followed it last night and everything passed. I tried downgrading to an earlier BIOS using the same method but the settings are still missing. I flashed ME separately, it's displaying correctly in the BIOS v8+. The turbo and voltage options are still missing frown.gif

Sweetcheeba, that is interesting. Remove power from PSU for about a minute, reset CMOS and check. If you don't have Ivy Bridge, try downgradion to 0xxx version with ME v7. If still nothing, it appers to be chipset failure.

Guys, I have read/searched through from Page 612 to this one(pressing F3 using 3402 query) and I know most recommend downgrading to 0902.
I wish to leave that as a last resort for now.

Can anyone confirm if its worth updating from 3305 to 3402? I haven't got any stability issues as far as I can see since I have a locked 2600
so not much ocing going on besides some BCLK for benches and also my RAM overclock seems a bit limited.

I don't know if upgrading to 3402 or downgrading to 0902 would help on my ocing. Also I get a really long post everytime at boot or reboot everytime (like 8-10seconds).

So, if anyone can went from 3305 to 3402 give some more detailed/indepth info, it would be great. Thanks.

Recently I reinstalled W7 and I updated the Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection to the latest driver v 17.3
But now I noticed that when loading all the services in windows, the network icon in the taskbar takes a lot longer to load (it has the blue ring in it and takes about 2 minutes).
I also installed an older driver but still no luck and I kept all LAN settings on default.
It's a small but subtle difference that I didn't had before.
Anyone?

It's caused by the AI Suite II you installed, I had the exact same problem a while ago when I upgraded from the "old" AI Suite to AI Suite II to see if FanXpert II would work with the Gene-Z. Downloaded it from the Maximus V Extreme page as well if I remember correctly.

Turns out the AsusFanControlService often hangs when it starts and cause a delay in the network initialization for a minute or two (and that service remains stuck at "Starting" if you take a look in Services after the hang). The solution was to set the service to manual, but then you need to manually open the AI Suite FanXpert window to register the initial fan speed, which defeats a bit of the purpose tongue.gif

I suggest uninstalling completely AI Suite II and going back to the older version listed on the utilities from the Gene-Z. Weird that you got the "not supported" error though, are you sure you got the correct version ?

Also, I found out when uninstalling AI Suite II that the uninstaller did not remove all the services, leaving the problematic AsusFanControlService there even with the software gone mad.gif I used this small utility below that somebody posted on the ASUS support site to remove all traces of it. Personally I just uninstalled all of it and reverted to my BIOS fan control as it was not the best experience ever...

Thanx man! Problem solved! thumb.gif and rep!
Yeah, as you I decided to just use the BIOS..pity cause it was kinda easy to alter in W7 rather then always restarting.

As for the 'not supported' issue, I even tried to install AI Suite II from the Driver dvd but even that didn't load. Turns out it's know by Asus. Funny thing is the 'fix' is located at a different mobo
search for AI Suite II Patcher - Fix AI Suite II cannot be installed (check OS!)
