Update BIOS

Thanks, I know it can recognise single side 128 MB RAM as I am having one in the system currently.

I checked the Kingston website, the board actually supports 256 MB RAM.

Do you think updating the BIOS help?

Thanks.

Managed to upgrade my BIOS using the ASUS Flash Programme to P5A ACPI BIOS 1011 beta 05. However, I need to use the DDO to set back the correct disk drive capacity. The reclaimed disk space was seen as un-partitioned space, so I just partitioned and formated it. Overall it was quite a breeze. Thanks...

One question, do I use the Award Flash or Asus Flash programme? I am having the Asus BIOS upgrade, I suppose either the Flash progr...

Rainbow,

Thanks for the tips.

I just hope that the BIOS can recognise the harddisk as full capacity - the reclaimed disk space as unpartitioned, so that I can easily re-partition and re-format that portion (50 GB) without the need to re-install the OS again.

Denniss, Thanks for the information. The beta BIOS has a filename that is named 1011.005. I thought BIOS files should end with .bin? So if I use the beta version, do I use the file as it is, or do I need to rename the file to 1011.bin in order to flash the BIOS? Right now, I set the harddisk to 32 G...

Soupy, Thanks for the mod, will try to flash the BIOS. There are two zip files - 1007a and 1011__05 - where the former is the final and the latter is the beta. So I reckon I have to use the the final copy instead of the beta version? By the way, so sorry for failing to read the rules, will take note...
