ERROR: BIOS has no flash information available
I don't how to use EZFlash to update the BIOS. In the manual it says press <alt>+<F2> during POST. I don't what they mean during POST. During intial start-up i get the P4P800 Logo screen and if i press <alt>+<F2> there my monitor screen goes black and the monitor light turn to red from green. I don't why that happens. Anyone with any info, please help me. My BIOS version is v1005

The reason you are unable to flash your bios is because you are using the wrong flash utility, Asus makes a flash utility that runs from the windows desktop for win2k and winXP, go and get it and flash away.
but in the ASUS P4P800 deluxe unser manual booklet it shows 2 ways to update the BIOS. First through MS-DOS using the afudos which i tried but got errors and the 2nd is using the EZ-Flash utility which i don't how to.
What flash utility is it, i looked over the ASUS downloads page but couldn't find anything. thanks for the help.
