I have a ASUS K8V mobo with bios problems. I've tried to update it but whenever I start the process it tells me that the board is NOT an ASUS board. I know it is because I bought it new from CompUSA and installed it myself. The update then fails. Right now it's causing problems with sound. I've tried to install the drivers for the sound controller but each time I get a message that tells me "Access is Denied". This even happens when I boot into windows' "safe" mode as administrator. Using the flash utility upon startup is no help either. The utility just says the file I'm trying to update the bios with is not the correct file size and fails. I've tried removing the battery for as long as 30 minutes trying to reset the memory, but to no avail. It still doesn't work. I'm running WinXP Pro with a AMD Athlon processor, 1G memory. Asus is no help at all. I'll never buy another ASUS board as this one is a replacement for the first one I had, and now it's failing. Can someone help me solve this?
