OKay I have the P5VD1-X Asus motherboard.  And a 631 3.0ghz processor 65nm.

I was very careful to make sure that this processor would be compatible with this motherboard, and it was.  However when I try to boot up I get a CPUID error msg.  I can get into bios and I look at my settings, when I try to load windows though it gets to the load screen and then reboots and I get the same CPUID error msg.

I went to the asus website to look for a bios update, and they had a recent one that said it fixes cpu id issues and supports more processors...HOWEVER, i'm trying to install the new bios and I can't figure it out.

I insert the floppy but it never gets me a chance to get to a command prompt, i'm so frustrated right now.

theres afudus.exe and some .rom file on the disk.

Any help would be great!! thanks
