  1. Hi guys,

    My motherboard is Asus P4S333/133 series.. I have updated wrongly my BIOS and the system doesn't boot anymore.

    The previous BIOS version is Asus P4S333-VF/WOL ACPI BIOS..

    Any advice from you guys to solve this problem? Thanks a lot in advance.

    A great big OUCH!

    You could try reflashing it with the correct one if it will get that far. But it probably wont even boot to floppy now... The only way I can think of is to remove the BIOS chip and reflaash it in a programmer :(

    Thats exactly why I never flash a BIOS unless its absolutly needed.

    You may be able to buy a new bios chip someone for your motherboard. Other than that you've just wasted a motherboard.
