    This morning, i updated my A7N8X-E Deluxe with Asus Update under Windows XP
    from 1008 to 1012. After reboot, i have nothing. No display, the light on
    the card is on, the sequence seems to begin (led of the cd-rom et burner),
    but no led on the floppy. The DD turned...

    I tried to changed my graphic card, to put another monitor...

    I don't know what i can do :-(
    Is there a way to restore the last bios without booting ?

    I guess you made a backup to your floppy disk, and you are not able to
    restore according to the ASUS instructions due to the fact that the FD
    doesn't work? Then I think there's not much help but go to a service
    like http://www.recoverybios.com/ (or a few others).

    I really don't want to gloat, and don't want to be the wisecrack, but
    was there really a necessity to update your BIOS? Sometimes I get the
    feeling a lot of people update their BIOS just because they _can_.
    There's seldomly a real necessity for it. But that doesn't help you much
    now :(

    Good luck anyhow.

    Worf: "No sir, I have not had a chance to meet all the new crew members
    since I have been back."

    If you want to be able to flash your BIOS as often as you wish, try to
    get a Bios Savior (Saviour, in Britain, and maybe everywhere else in

    You can then switch BIOS (it comes with one, you add your present
    one) if flashing fails, and you can then safely reflash.

    Not really cheap, though.

    Understand whole heartedly what Mr. CeeBee is saying when he states "just
    because" (referring to reflashing) I personally hate going there but in my
    case it was a necessity with the new SP2. I had one of the ASUS boards with
    the Prescott CPU and needed to reflash to get my machine even to boot. It
    wasn't that hard and it isn't even that hard with older boards. You just
    have to follow the instructions and exactly. And don't do it if you don't

    I was able to resolve it by popping the CMOS battery out, waiting a
    few moments then popping it back it. This seems to reset the CMOS or

    I had the same problem with ASUS A7N8X-X containing the NVIDIA chip
