|The ASUS site has complete instructions on how to flash the BIOS. Usually it's done by using a bootable floppy but there are other methods. Go back to the ASUS page where you download the BIOS file & look for a link titled something like "How to Update the BIOS". But as OtheHill pointed out, if you can't boot with the current CPU, you can't do the update.|
BTW, why did you get a 9600? Those are the "broken" Phenoms...the ones with the "fix" all have 50 for the last two digits.
