Tried to update a Asus P5S800-VM V1.03 motherboard and the BIOS completed but on reboot it wanted recover the bios. It said Bad CMOS. I used the Asus Live update and updated from a downloaded bios file. The machine was a Packard Bell originally with a new XP install.
I have tried to do the recovery but am totally lost, any help please.
Where did you get the BIOS from? Packard Bell BIOS's need to be downloaded from their website. I strongly recommend AGAINST using windows based BIOS flash utilities. Update from BIOS using a USB stick, floppy or CD if you can.
I got it from Asus Downloads for the L775 Asus P5S800-VM motherboard. I have downloaded the first BIOS and onto FDD but it just keeps saying its the wrong BIOS. I also downloaded and made the Packard Bell image BIOS for the machine which doesnt work. Thanks for your call!
I tried updating a Packard Bell BIOS not so long and had the same problem. Eventually I ended up reverting back to the old version. I may still have it on USB stick somewhere. What model PC do you have? With an infinite amount of luck I may have a version that will work in your PC
