Hi folks, I'm trying to update the bios on my system but it won't have it :-( I downloaded the file 1006g.zip from asus' website, and followed their instructions to the letter, but I keep getting an error message: "Warning this bios does not match on board". So, I have to abort it. Anyone know why it won't work? I have version 1003 on my system and am having problems which I havn't been able to sort any other way so I reckon I need to do this update. Any thoughts? Cheers.

Check you haven't got some sort of lock in place(jumper?)or another setting elsewhere in the BIOS,other than that I don't know.

Thanks Chegs, it's possible I suppose, But I wouldn't know where to look. I e-mailed asus and asked them why their ez update (thats a joke) won't work, have not had a reply yet.

1006g.zip states it's to add support for more CPU types - is this the problem you have? If it isn't then I would have thought it's unlikely to help you.

What problems are you haveing?

I've managed to update the bios via a utility on the mobo cd rom, it was actually quite easy funnily enough. I'm getting lock ups when game playing and have updated everything else on my system to no effect. I even swapped around most of my cards ( with my old pc ) but still get the problem. I upgraded my power supply. I think there's some kind of incompatability SOMEWHERE, but I'm damned if I can find it, it's been months of trying this that and the other all to no avail. My system consists of: asus p4g8x deluxe, p4 3.06 cpu, Hercules Prophet 9800 pro, Audigy 2 platinum, 1 gig ddr ram, 4 extra case fans,Windows xp home, 550watt psu, 60 gig hdd. It's the dogs bits, when it works.
Anyway, thanks for responding.

I sorted it myself with a program from the Asus disc :-)
