I don't want to discourage you, but an update can be tricky. Why do you need to update?

I agree. You should only update a bios if the update addresses exactly a problem that you have. If it works then don't mess with it.

Likie the other two, I stay claear of BIOS upgrade unless absolutely necessary.

My guess is the failure to read optical drive is caused by something alse. Maybe as simple as a bad cable.


Did you copyright that tag line? If not, I'll distribute it.

Look at the date of your current BIOS - 09/20/2000 - your system is almost 10 yrs old. I highly doubt booting from USB (if that's what you want to do) will be supported on a system that old, even with a BIOS update. If you're having problems getting internal drives recognized, it's probably because you don't have the master/slave jumpers set correctly. Or as Mechanix2Go said, you may have a bad cable.

Based on the info you listed, your motherboard is probably a socket 370 board from the Asus CUV4X series. I think you're wasting your time with the BIOS update, but the only way you're going to be able to do it is to find the exact model number of the board, then go to the Asus site & download it. That means you're going to have to open the case & find the model number on the board...it's probably printed between the PCI slots.

I did update the bios with the latest BIOS

(CUV4X Beta BIOS 1010.003 9/11/02
The latest Beta BIOS. from
http://support.asus.com/download/do... )

and my computer works perfect I struggled until I made a bootable floppy
So in future if you know a better way to make a bootable floppy tell me (what do you recommend besides Aflash'''')

Thank you all very much and keep up the good work!

I use the "two floppy method"

floppy 1 = WinME boot floppy
floppy 2 = BIOS ROM file & flash utility

Here's how it's done:

1. boot off floppy 1, select option 4 (minimal boot), then wait for the A:\> prompt to come up

2. remove floppy 1 & insert floppy 2. At the A:\> prompt, type the name of the flash utility (AWDFLASH for example) & press ENTER

3. follow the on-screen instructions
