Asus Crosshair IV help!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I went onto the Asus website checking to see if any new driver had been posted and noticed my bios was out of date. Part of me said just leave it but the other half of me saying just do it prevailed. The update went through and I was prompted to reboot so I rebooted and it would not post, after several minutes I shut it down and powered it up again and now it is showing a DRAM error on the LEDs. I cleared CMOS, tried booting with one stick of memory and had no luck. Any help is greatly appreciated and of anymore information is needed I will post it up. Thanks again.
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 955
RAM: g.skill trident (2x2gb) 1600 1.65v

Ok put all the sticks in the board and then right near the 24 pin power connector there is a button with the words go printed under it, press that and it should boot with safe RAM settings.

How do I flash the bios without being able to get anything on screen? Thank you for the link, that is looking like my best option right now. Also would a corrupt or missing bios give me a DRAM error?

Make sure the flash drive is formatted with FAT32 and mine didn't like the USB 3.0 ports for flashing. I had to use the USB 2.0.
I'd stay with either the 1304 or 1902 bios version for your CPU if/when it happens.
Good luck!
