I could help you with that.


I have used ASUS's Windows BIOS flash program a few times and never had any issues with it (now the Internet flash I would stay away from), can't speak to any other manufacture's Windows flash tool though. However, the most secure, safest way is as Lemondrips stated, through the BIOS.

As others have stated... NEVER, EVER flash your BIOS from within Windows. Its basically playing Russian roulette with your mobo. There are any number of trivial processes running in Windows that could interupt the flashing process and turn your board into a paper-weight.

That being said, I have flashed numerous boards using BIOS-based flash utilities, and I have never had any issues.
At long last...

yeah I knew it could brick the board if it screwed up. Im so tempted to get the same motherboard as you. I was @ 3.6 with only 1.28vcore in cpu-z with my DFI board wonder how high I could get my 9450 with it

They came to Orlando on the 5th of December, I was broke and none of my friends wanted to come along to go see them, I was disappointed.

Heed my warning: never EVER flash a BIOS with an overclocked system, even if Prime95 says it was stable for 24 hours, you`ve still running a risk. All you need is one borked bit, and you board is busted

Could could also try making sure you have the minumal stuff possible, so RAM, CPU, GPU, monitor, and keyboard plugged in and see what happens.

Also oddly enough, try different keyboards.

My P5N32-E SLI had an issue where in 1 BIOS having ANY RAZER device plugged in at all caused it not to POST. It turns out it was my USB Razer mouse keeping it from POSTing. The Polling rate was changed on the board which caused issues with the Razer polling rate.
