post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

Since i have upgraded to 3203 ( i downloaded the bios from asus website and upgraded it with Asus AI SUITE II from a file), i cant play any games anymore neither watch youtube videos or anything that affects my graphic card.As soon as i want to play Battlefield 3 or any other game, every game crashes and i am having black screen and i am having that famous GPU error the nvidia display driver has stopped working and has recovered.I used to have same problem with one version before 3103, but when i upgraded to 3103 in that time, my problem was solved.So now again on 3203 same thing.My question is is there any way to downgrade the BIOS to 3103 or any other version which is stable ?I would really appreciate your help guys.Thank you.

Here are my PC specs :

You can overwrite any version of the BIOS with any other version...up or down it doesn't matter. It isn't a Sony PS3 that you can't backtrack the BIOS on.

Don't forget there are two BIOS chips on your motherboard. In the short term, you can switch BIOS versions on the motherboard with the BIOS switch, refer to your manual to find the BIOS Button (#17), and then update from there.

You are not helping me at all...also my manual is not telling me exactly what to do...my question is how to downgrade in simple way...like can i use asus AI suite II for downgrading BIOS from a file that i have downloaded, just simply click update bios from a file, select older version and continue? Or is there any other simple way what to do because i really have no idea actualy.Thank you.
