BIOS Error


Well i had an error yesterday, people said i should reseat my CPU, i did that and then i had the following message "New CPU installed, go to Setup" and "Fatal Error, System halted, chasis intruded", then i restarted my pc and got into BIOS by pressing "del" key, afterwards i pressed "esc" and got my self into "Advanced Mode" i could move around there with the arrows but i had some kinda "color" error, like so random colored Quadrats on the screen.

On my old HDD i had Windows XP Pro 32bit installed, as soon as it starts loading i can see the Windows logo then it just shut downs and then i get the "start windows normally" "networking mode" etc. and it keeps redoing it.

So should i get the file from ASUS site and flash the BIOS and afterwards just do a fresh install of Windows 7 64. I tried to insert my Windows XP cd and i could boot from the cd when i changed the boot priority.

  1. Don't flash the bios unless you've already formated and done a fresh install of windows. Always do a fresh install with board change.


    seriously wtf
  3. Should i FLASH BIOS now and then INSTALL windows 7 or install windows 7 and then flash the bios?
  4. You never need to flash the bios to run windows 7. I don't know why people persist in this false rumor. Try loading windows 7 first. Flashing to a new bios file can sometimes make things worse, not better.
