Hi guys, last few days I solve very frustrating issue on the ASUS P5BW-LE revision 1.01 motherboard that is made for HP Desktop PCs. I bought it as a used piece and it is the worst thing I could do since there is no support for this piece of crap. I really confused of this motherboard because I watched out the whole HP website for support of this mobo, but didnt found anything related to it. I found out some info on the HP site about P5BW-LA mobo which is made in 2 different versions, with integrated graphics (HP called Buckeye) and without it (HP Basswood or Basswood2). I really dont know the difference between -LA and -LE versions of this crap. Anyway my Award BIOS ID is "Broadwater-Buckeye-00" version 0.06 (!??) dated 01/20/2006. I solve this strange issues: After installing WinXP I am not able to shut down the computer regularly since it permanently reboots when shutting down. Another strange issue is that it is not possible to install graphic drivers for the G965 chipset, this attempt ends up watching black screen:o( There is some windows based BIOS update for P5BW-LE/LA mobo on the HP site, but it is used only for Windows Vista and should solve the restarting issue. I've tried it to extract and got winflash utility and some strange .ROM file that could be the new BIOS but is is not recognized by any flashing utility even the included winflash (!?) I desperately need some new BIOS file for this mobo. Is anybody so pleased and send it to me? Please if anyone of you uses HP Pavilion Media Center Desktop PC versions m75xx, m76xx, m77xx or Compaq Presario Media Center SR20xx, SR19xx (xx=various numbers) it would be very very nice of you to make a backup copy of your bios by some flashing utility (uniflash or winflash should be working) and send it to me. I will very appreciate it. Thanks for your help.
