Well I have a brand new motherboard

ASUS P4C800-E DELUXE

I have updated the bios before, but now when I just went to do it today, with the program called 'Asus Update' it says it cannot find a Asus motherboard, then just shuts down automatically

Well I thought it was a corrupted file, uninstalled, and now I can even instal it because the same error comes up saying it cannot find an Asus motherboard

Its worked before?
Something corrupted or what?
I just formated my computer(1 hour ago) with a new harddrive, so its not that......

To Watson1987;

>> I have updated the bios

     Actually updating a bios is not neccesary unless it really needs an update, It can harm your motherboard and might not
     function well if not done correctly.

     Here are some advice based on my experience hope it helps :

     1.)  Try downloading the original BIOS setup and install it on the system.

     If did not worked try this :

     1.) Remove the battery of the motherboard and wait for 5 min and put it back again.
     2.) Remove the small jumpers of the motherboard of the system for 5 min and put it back again.
     3.) Try restarting.
     
     If did not worked use this :

     Still did not worked try calling the support line of your motherboard :

The "ASUS Update" is a tools that came and guaranteed to work with the original BIOS as installed on the MB.  If you update the BIOS - there is no guarantee that the tool will work because the BIOS signature would have changed.  This seems to be your case.

As Cube_X stated, there is no need to update the BIOS unless it's really needed.

If you need to update the BIOS for your ASUS P4C800-E DELUXE MB download and use the following programs:  PC4D11.ROM (the latest BIOS), AFlash (Flashing program) and AFDOS.EXE.  It's a simple process.  The link:

If you want to run that "ASUS Update" - you will need to restore the old BIOS.  My recommendation is that since you have updated your BIOS to the latest version, just forget about installing that "ASUS Update" tool - it's a one time use to update the original BIOS to the latest - and it sounded like you have done that.

NOTHING is corrupted.  Just proceed with the installation of your system and be happy computinng.  Hope I have answered all of your questions and settled your doubts.

cheers...
