1 - what is the update meant to do?

2 - are you sure you have an Asus motherboard?

I assume you mean a BIOS update?

Can you advise what MOBO you have please and the version number of the BIOS

madboy33©® - I'd assumed a motherboard driver update. Never heard of a BIOS update suggesting the absence of a motherboard...

i have checked with belarc,everest so i do have asus
forgot to mention earlier the first error message that shows up
"unable to create nt driver service for BS_DEF.DLL"
update is meant to for updating bios or any other related updtae from asus via asus update rather than downloaded on to a floppy or cd

To be honest i assumed a BIOS update as if it was not an asus board then it would come up with that error

I bet you have an audigy2 sound card?

If you have then you have to re-install the BIOS flasher that you got with the DISC or click here

Which version of update are you trying to use?

If it's an older one then it might not see a newer motherboard.

They are 4 versions here. click here

the motherboard is asus a8v this is what it says on the cd "cd rev 85.04" i do have a audigy2 sound card but have not installed it yet.

  audigy 22:12 15 Jun 2006

the bios version is 0219

  User-312386 22:37 15 Jun 2006

the latest version is 0219, however, there is a beta version 0221
