Using the X4 960T on the Asus M4A78LT-M LE. Impossible BIOS flash?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, a mate of mine bought the Asus V7-M4A3000E Barebone fitted with an M4A78LT-M LE motherboard.
This board would normally be able to run the cpu, but it has an outdated bios (0404).

New biosses are available, however the EZ flash utility won't accept the new bios version. Which is weird because the asus product page states the new bios should be compatible with all board revisions.

Does anyone have an idea how to flash this bios 'manually'? Cause it should work, right?
Thanks in advance thumb.gif

It's a gimped MB version(bios is gimped too) for prebuilts(like dell),with no updated bios' and very few bios options.
0404 bios is the only one they offer.
You may want to contact Asus technical support, if you ask nice they may/maynot be able to mod a bios just for you.

That is about your only hope.

Good luck

Thanks for the info and the tip.
First I'll check if the webshop that sold it specified wether or not it should be compatible w/ said cpu though.
