Windows 7 Ultimate x64

As this is a new Motherboard (I know from a different thread) you should have a manual or you could download that as well then you would find the info you require in there.

So look at the manual, in the download version you need to look at Chapter 3, 3.2.2 ASUS EZ Flash 2 utility. I have always found this easiest. Make sure you downloaded the latest.

Ps. Did you find the Realtek HD Manager?

You may update the ASUS Bios either using the ASUS Update Utility (Windows Environment) or booting the system in the DOS environment with the BIOS files copied to a pendrive.

Both the procedures are explained in detail in "Chapter 2 BIOS Information" in the manual.

Follow any one procedure and and carryout the update carefully as per the instructions contained therein.

Be aware that any interruption in the flashing process will render your motherboard useless.

If you do not have the manual download it from ( Select others in the dropdown box which will take you to the Manuals link among others)

If you are not very confident that you understand the procedure for flashing the BIOS, I would recommend that you take it to a professional repair shop and let them do it for you. I have no idea of what they might charge now, but I did that once about 6 years ago, and it cost me $25. At the time, I felt that was money well spent, because I knew how easily things could go wrong.

If you don't know how to update your bios, then I recommend no trying as if you make a mistake. it is disaster.

And only from the manufacturer of your MB's site. Most have 2 or more ways to update the bios.

Bottom line if your not confident, don't try it.
