Hello,

Does the Asus A8N32-SLI Motherboard/BIOS copy itself into System RAM
like old computer do ?

If so then this new kinda wild theory should be possible:

1. The computer boots.

2. The uninfected bios is loaded into ram. (Shadowed)

3. Windows is started.

4. Some kind of windows virus infects the shadowed bios in RAM ?!

5. Somehow the "infected/corrupted" bios DAMAGES the hardware ?!

Ofcourse it could also simply be a windows memory corruption bug ?!

So shadowing something essential as a bios seems DANGEROUS and unwise
for system stabilitiy ?!?!?!?

Ofcourse anyhting could be infected... however the bios is pretty
critical.. if infected it could actually DAMAGE hardware ?!

That's kinda harder to do with simple application software... to that
might be possible too...

KEEP OUT BADDIES IS GOOD =D

LOL.

Seriously though:

The bios menu did not have a "shadow" option...

So what is the thruth... is the bios shadowed or not ?????? strange...

Bye,
Skybuck.

that you wouldnt understand the truth....
If your worried about virus's infecting the bios, then turn on the option in
the bios settings that will warn you if something trys to mod the bios....
you'll get a beep and a big box popping up saying (do you want to overwrite
bios) or something similar.....

Any connection to a virus is false and FUD.

Please don't create rumours !

No, it is not. Some mb's still have that option but you are just
asking for trouble if you enable it.
