Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 89

post #881 of 1386
The ME is up to date as of few past BIOS updates, no need to update that. You can update Intel OROM if you want, that's still lagging behind. I still use AI SUITE update method (have the file on your computer) and it hasn't failed yet.

If you are updating from 1xxx bios to 3xxx bios the proper procedure is as follows the only thing I would add is to set optimized defaults save and exit prior to step one and do the same after step 4 followed by entering bios again to setup your personal settings like boot drive etc.

 

 

Quote:

To update to UEFI build 3202:

Ensure system is 100% stable before flashing! Do not perform this update on an overclocked system, set defaults and ensure 100% stability before commencing.


1) Flash from EZ Flash 2 (this is important, do not use any other method of flashing!) using a FAT32 formatted USB drive. Make sure you flash from EZ Flash 2 only and NOT Windows!


2) You will need to let the system flash twice. Flash the first time, when the flash completes follow the onscreen prompt to reboot.


3) Second flash will commence when the board re-BOOTs, should find the file automatically and flash it (this flash wil update the ME fw while the first flash updates UEFI).


4) After the second flash completes, follow the onscreen prompts, power down the system at mains (AC) and clear CMOS (Clear RTC) for 5 seconds before using the system again.

Is this procedure official from ASUS?

+1 that's why I provided the source link so all here would know it's the official method. I still think I'll stick with 1101 though

Since I upgraded to the BenQ XL2420TX monitor, I only see the post screen of my computer randomly (sometimes it shows up, sometimes it doesn't). But everything is booting up properly up to Windows, I just can't see the post screen. I have it shown in the settings and I even tried forcing it to show for 10 secs and the screen doesn't show it still. It seems that the screen only detects the input signal when Windows starts loading. What's wrong?
post #888 of 1386
I've got an Asus P8Z68V-gen3 MB and using the built in Intel LAN (connected via ethernet cable) I get the occasional random disconnect once or twice a day. The network internet access icon on the taskbar will very briefly (5-15 seconds) show the yellow triangle icon before reconnecting. Has anyone else experienced this? Will updating the Intel LAN driver correct this issue or is there another remedy?

Updating will fix, I remember that issue with older driver.
post #890 of 1386
Any special steps to update the LAN driver? I have limited experience with drivers and bios. When I attempt to launch the autorun.exe via winzip I get the message ".ini file not found" or some such nonsense.
