HELP!! P7P68 Deluxe BIOS Update failed and cannot recover

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I feel desperate now as I tried to update to the 1053 Bios and now my system doesn't boot. I downloaded the BIOS from ASUS site and saved it to hard disk. Then I updated the file from the ASUS 2 EZ Flash utility. After finishing the procedure it popped a message that the update was succesful and that it will restart the system.

After restart the recover mode is activated and while I have tried with the Motherboard cd or a flash drive to load the P8P67D.ROM file, the system gets stuck to a black screen doing nothing. RAM and Graphics card leds are on and the error code is 0E. Please guys do you know what's happening?

Simple,BIOS flash has failed..

Try this:

1. Put your motherboard's CD into DVD drive..

2. Reboot system..

3.On a power up if nothing happens then press Ctrl+HOME buttons to trigger BIOS recovery..

4. CrashFree BIOS 3 should recover your motherboard automatically with BIOS file stored onto motherboard's CD..

5. Then system should automatically reboot..

Also you can do it with USB flash drive with BIOS file on it (doesn't need to be bootable)..

Your motherboard also should have a Dual Bios chips,so you just swap chips and boot the system with backup BIOS..

CHEERS..

Tried already. Nothing happens! Ctrl+Home doesn't seem to work as no led is on on the keyboard. I don't know what else to do. When i put the mob o's cd IT gets stuck to the blavk screen with the error code 0E. If I remove it the I get the message that the recovery mode is activated and to put the mobo cd in. Any other clues?

Have you tried to put CD in after the message??

Also try with USB flash drive with BIOS file on it..

Unfortunately Asus P867 Deluxe comes with only one BIOS chip so swapping and booting on backup BIOS is out of option..

Also there's BIOS hotflash procedure it's risky and needs second Asus mobo (working system based on Asus mobo) (doesn't need to be a P67,just one that uses same type of BIOS chips)..

I have done the HOTFLASH couple of times and it has worked well for me..

EDIT: Now that Asus uses EFI BIOS I don't know if the hotflash would work as it needs a DOS based flashing utility..

CHEERS..

Yes I Tried everything. Before, After message, with CD & USB... Nothing! I will check this hotflash procedure if I can do it.

Just for the history,

If i turn on the TPU and EPU switches then when I insert the mobo CD it gets to an endless loop something like to reboot all the time. The VGA led lights for a second and then switches off until the next cycle while the RAM led is constantly on. The screen is black during all this...

Guys this is the first and the last time that I bought an ASUS board. I had Gigabyte so many years and I never had such problems. Seems like that I have to RMA the board because of a BIOS flash update. It is very disapointing...

This afternoon I tried to flash to a newer bios version on the P8P67 Deluxe B3 motherboard and somehow nuked the bios to kingdom come. Seems like shutting pc off before allowing it to completely reboot was the problem despite a successful flash message. Luckily for me I still had the B2 stepping recalled motherboard and swapped bios chips which worked like a charm. Hope your situation resolves too!

Yes, I replied to your post on the ]H[ regarding that. When you flash a BIOS, it's best not to use any "automatically restart" switches or flags, and have the computer shut down after the BIOS flash is complete. (I personally avoid any mainboard flashing in windows for obvious reasons). So if this was done in DOS/boot disk, you just power off the computer with the case switch, or even the power supply rocker switch. Then you use the clear cmos jumper (or the clear cmos button) with the power supply completely unplugged; about 20 seconds of the jumper being moved to the "clear" position, or two long presses of a cmos button, are enough. Then put everything back and the board should power up at defaults.

If you restart after a flash, without clearing cmos, you have to let the board finish POST'ing, or strange things can happen.

But it's ALWAYS recommended to clear cmos after a bios flash. *always*. You can have really funky stuff happen if you don't, like having the PCIE slots suddenly running at 8x when they should be at 16x, etc. (I had this happen once, and it was fixed after clearing the CMOS. I didn't clear the cmos after a flash on a B2 board).

Well I didnt flash within windows. I used the bios ezflash utility built into the bios its self. After it said success it rebooted and I powered it down when maybe I should have let it finish posting and load windows and then shut down? Thats how Gary recommended doing a proper flash. Anyhow I still want to go up to 1502 but now afraid to try flashing it again. I suppose I could hot flash the other bios chip to have a backup but I would have to use a short video card (i have one) to have access to the bios chip, boot into dos, swap bios chips, then run a dos based flash utility of which Im not sure how to for the p8p67 deluxe. Should I go for it?

Thanks

If for some reason you bios died during bios flashing procedure you can always buy a BIOS chip replacement in ebay...
