When I turn on the computer, I get the following message:
Intel cpu uCode load error
Press F1 to continue.
I have an Asus Commando board and an Intel Q6600 processor.

I read somewhere that I need to "flash the bios".  How?

New build or has PC operated previously? Error usually occurs when a CPU is not recognized by BIOS.

Also, if CPU has been overclocked, clear CMOS.

Computer is running fine after I press F1.  I do overclock.  This problem started, paradoxically, after i reset everything (including the cpu speed) to default!

Then I'd try clearing the CMOS, should be a jumper on mobo to clear. As I recall Asus gives their jumper an unusual name instead of the more common CLR_CMOS.

See page 2-23 in Motherboard manual.

If you don't have the manual, here's a link:

You'll have to reset date and time and redo any changes made in BIOS setup. The BIOS settings will revert to factory default.

How can you overclock and not be familiar with clearing CMOS?

I just don't know all the terminology!  Plus, overclocking is EASY on this board!
