Hi, I've been lurking here for sometime and now have a serious problem with my system. Up until recently everything was running stable and fine. I just received my x64 Vista Ultimate Edition, and in preperation downloaded all the latest drivers and updates. I also used the asus web based bios update to upgrade the bios to 9.01. However after rebooting the system it would not post, I've moved the CLRTC jumper from postion 1-2 , to 2-3 and followed the instructions to reset the bios and so far have no luck. Any suggestions as what to do next? before I RMA the motherboard?

Can you go back to the other bois to see if it works right like it used to before you updated to the new Bios update and see if the new bios is the problem.

Sounds like your bios chip didn't take the flash and failed and errored out. This happens alot with most Asus motherboards I've used. Even the Asus striker extreme can fail to no matter how high-end you go. Call Asus tech support and get transferred to their Bios dept. there's a lady named Karen who might be super cool and FedEx ground you the most current bios rom chip free. I know your motherboard is good it's the small bios rom chip in the socket which you can pull out and replace with a working bios rom chip. Go online and buy a cheap bios rom extractor tool called the PLCC Extractor http://www.hobbytron.com/PLCC-Extractor.html use it to remove the dead bios and replace it with the new one. I know because I've been in the same boat as you a couple of times before. Get a bios rom mailed to you or you can wait it out for nearly 3 weeks and have you motherboard shipped back. Do as I tell you and I'm sure your going to get a better result in getting your motherboard up and running again. I know your just dying to get back on it! :D When that **** happened to me I didn't know what to do but now knowing is half the battle for you! Good Luck! :D
