Any Ideas what else I could do?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have this board...Asus P8H77 V-LE. I updated the bios recently which somehow caused a few bios options to disappear. mainly the one i am annoyed by is "Turbo Ratio" it is gone along with a few other overclocking options.... so the board can not be manually overclocked...
after some reading I find out that this has been happening across the asus lineup for over a year yet they do nothing about it no consumer warnings nor fixes..... nada... Seems as though many people have fixed it by using "amiflash" and checking "use all blocks" or something... which is great accept when I try this app I just get a message saying "error amiflash is not compatible with bios"

So yesterday I did more reading and reflashed the bios about a dozen times... I reflashed all versions of the bios all the way back to the first release using FTK flash toolkit... A dos flash utility... I also tried flashing twice the same bios and then pulling the battery to clear cmos to no avail... supposedly ftk erases the chip completely however it does not fix the missing options in my case...I even went as far as reseating my cpu to see if it would now recognize that it is a "K" chip. nada....

So is there anything else i could do? The board is getting replaced soon but I wanted to fix it anyway as I may give it to my girlfriend... besides I have problems settling for "oh well" tongue.gif The board works fine it just cant be overclocked...
I just cant believe that asus does not do something about the problem....5% of asus customers with broken bios is a significant amount of unhappy customers... I would expect this from some low end company but not asus...
