Problem With Asus A8v Deluxe

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is the problem...

I have updated my BIOS using the original software from installation CD to update my BIOS. The process run OK but when it reboots, nothing apears.

I have read that Asus motherboards detect a bad BIOS installation and shows a message "Bad checksum", and have a recovery software for BIOS. But i have no messages.

Is my BIOS death for update it with original CD??

Someone have any idea for the problem.

Thanks

Try this, reboot hit F8 on post. (safe mode) scroll down to the VGA choice, pick it.

Sounds to me you corrupted your video driver (cause I er, uh, have done it myself)

when in safe mode, re install your video driver I hope it works out for you.

I have done all this things. I can't flash with the correct BIOS cause the screen doesn't show anything. I have searching information and I have found this in wimsbios.com:

34. I flashed my VIA chipset based motherboard with the correct BIOS upgrade and it died. Why ?

Before flashing you have to disable Byte Merge in the Award BIOS. Not doing this will kill your motherboard BIOS. This behavior has been seen on the ASUS P3V4X and K7V motherboards when using ASUS own aflash.(It may not be limited to ASUS alone.)

Perhaps in A8V motherboards is the same. A solution in this page is this:

9. How can you recover a corrupt BIOS ?

Modern motherboards have a boot-block BIOS. This is small area of the BIOS that doesn't get overwritten when you flash a BIOS. The boot-block BIOS only has support for the floppy drive. If you have a PCI video card you won't see anything on the screen because the boot-block BIOS only supports an ISA videocard.

Award: The boot-block BIOS will execute an AUTOEXEC.BAT file on a bootable diskette. Copy an Award flasher & the correct BIOS *.bin file on the floppy and execute it automaticly by putting awdflash *.bin in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

AMI: The AMI boot-block BIOS will look for a AMIBOOT.ROM file on a diskette. Copy and rename the correct BIOS file on the floppy and power up the PC. The floppy doesn't need to be bootable. You will see the PC read the floppy, after about 4 minutes you will hear 4 beeps, this means the transfer is done. Reboot the PC and modify the CMOS for your configuration.

I will try to copy the asus rom in a diskette. I hope it works...

My friend Lon... First of all you have to remove all of your memory. Remove the battery. Reset bios with the jumber as shown on your user guide page 2-18. The trick to have your screen appears again is to plug ONLY ONE
memory in the first slot. Not the blue one near your processor but the other
near your cds or dvds. Then download the a8v asus deluxe 1017.rom from www.asus.com with another pc. Rename it as a8v.rom. Write it on a cd.
Use the Asus EzFlash to update your bios. Page 4-4 on your manual.
Your Pc will work again for sure. Don't panic. Done this today.
