Hi, This is my first post her so bear with me!

I just purchased the Asus A8V-VM motherbard along with a 19" widescreen monitior (1440x900)
The onboard graphics allegedly supports resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 but this requires vbios 2.28.00

The newest ASUS motherboard bios does not contain this vga rom. Because of this i cannot access anything beyond 1280x1024. Powerstrip doesn't work either.

What I think I need to do is hack two bioses together,

This ASUS one which I'm currently using:

And this Foxconn one which contains the 2.28.00 vbios,761GXK8MB-RS

I want to rip the vbios from the foxcon and reassemble it into the Asus bios.
What tools/utils will i need to do this, (extracting and compiling the components of the bios) and more importantly do you think it would work?

Thanks in advance
