Hi Hope somebody can help as I am after a copy of the cd as supplied with an Asus A7N8X motherboard. I believe the cd contains a BIOS recovery tool that I need to recover the BIOS on this motherboard. It failed a BIOS update and using AWDFLASH from a floppy I get the message "source file not found" I know the new BIOS is on the floppy. Having researched this I have found there is a crash free BIOS recovery tool on the cd, hence the request for the cd. Thanks
Don't know if it will do anything, but you could try this - Unplug the power cord, then either use the ClearCMOS jumper or remove the motherboard battery for a minute, then replace, plug it back in & see what happens
Hi I have been to the ASUS support page where I downloaded the BIOS flash utility and a the latest BIOS file. The BIOS flash utility - AWDFlash - autoruns and gives the message "source file not found". The ASUS support page suggests I should get the option to type in the correct filename - but this is not the case. The next option they suggest is to boot from the supplied cd. I have removed the battery - for a couple of days - cant find a clear cmos jumper - but still the same message, hence my search now for the cd.
Few more things to try: Bad BIOS Flash and Dead Board Testing click here
Asus A7N8X page at Asus click here (other variations of your board click here if applicable). See if you can find anything useful under the Download tab. You can download the manual from there which will tell you how to clear the CMOS via the jumper. G
