Hi I need to downgrade my bios because the new updates caused me to only have 4gb out of my 6gb when I overclock or change a setting in the bios it restarts to show only 4gb.
Either I need a solution to this or I need help downgrading my bios
I need to downgrade to 1306 from 1802-1704-1639-1504-1406-1306.
This problem has been going on for 6months+ I kinda just gave up for a while now I'm trying again. I bought a brand new patriot xporter flash drive 4gb and that's what I will be using
core i7920 overclocked to 3.7ghz
6gb of corsair memory
asus rampage I I extreme motherboard
EVGA gtx 285
1kpsu (Overkill I know)
300gb velocity raptor
How did you flash this BIOS update? If you used a floppy/CD/USB stick just after after POST then you should be able to just load the previous BIOS onto the media of choice and re-flash it.
I once had a similar problem with an HP laptop. I updated the BIOS and it made the mobo no longer compatible with the memory, so I reloaded an older BIOS and it started to work again. I feel your pain.
I usually stay away from the Windows BIOS flashing, too many horror stories. I am not sure if you can specify a file using the Windows method, but if you can it may work. Still, ASUS does have a flash utility that you can access during POST and you can put the BIOS rom file on a floppy/USB stick and flash it that way. Check your mobo manual for the section called, "3.1.3 ASUS EZ Flash 2 utility." It has an easy-to-follow step-by-step to guide you through the entire process. You just need to download an older BIOS from ASUS, or use the one that came on the mobo driver CD/DVD.
From my understanding the instructions want you to make a flash drive bootable, but I believe this can only be done with a floppy, so just format a floppy to be bootable and copy it to the flash drive. I've never done that but it should work. In My Computer, right-click on the floppy, select format, check "Quick Format" and "Create an MS-DOS startup disk," and click start.
Those instructions from that forum got really weird on step 2 of the USB drive part. Sorry.
