If you have trouble with updating the newest BIOS P5GC-MX(1333) with the oldest BIOS P5GC-MX(UD) of your machine, here is the simple solution.Maybe you wont be able to switch on your machine monitor light will blink, no signals and cpu working as normal.(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. "afudos /ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded.If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.)Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. The final message will be "Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard.
I've also tried different softwares but non of the work.
A BIOS update might be all a user needs resolve them.
Though it's not without hazards, the process is fairly easy. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file.
(Select Tools YES)Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot.
Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default."Reboot. If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility.
