Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Clearly the BIOS is corrupted, this is ASUS's way of telling you to insert the ASUS OEM CD/DVD that came with your MOBO -- part of the ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2 recovery process.

You have (2) choices:
1. Use the ASUS OEM CD/DVD and insert it in the PC's CD/DVD/BR drive
2. Create a NEW CD/DVD with your (file_name.ROM) file - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_754/K8VMX/#...
* (a) To determine the correct (file_name.ROM) ROM file name put in any CD/DVD ; see video.
* (b) Download the latest BIOS (.ROM) file from the link above, unzip (extract) K8VMX211.zip, copy the K8VMX211.ROM file to the desktop, RENAME per (a) above as shown in the video below.
* (c) Burn the CD/DVD with the file_name.ROM

Recovery: Turn-on PC with the NEW CD/DVD <or> ASUS OEM CD/DVD and allow the recovery to complete.

Hi dont know if your still around or not because this was a long time ago and i mean if you still go on this website..


anyways same problem and i am actually going to be using a dvd driver for this but i do not think the motherboard is reading the dvd player because i put the cd in there the one that came with the motherboard and it did not say anything
