Updating laptop cmos bios
To boot the program I made two floppy disks, one with a Windows 98 SE boot disk, and the second with the spipgm2 program and the bios image file (extension).I confirm I successfully programmed my flash IC for an ASUS P8H67-M-PRO. I built the parallel adapter, I added a 3.3vdc power supply and used it to program my flash memory chip.I made a really bad attempt at using a chopped up parallel cable and the ends from a USB header port thing.This didn't work out well so I found at the local electronics store a parallel connector with a ribbon cable on it.Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.Visit Stack Exchange doesn't fully support Windows 64-bit.Same as others, I tried to update the bios with the bios utility. First I compared it's content with the ROM image and I realised that most of the ic content was #FF (erased but not programmed).
From the ASUS website, they have a 3 year warranty on the motherboard. There are some great suggestions here, but odds are you don't have the gear to fix (reflash) the rom on your own.Take a paper clip and stick it into the holes in the header connector to determine which lead needs to go to what pin on the DB25 using your multimeter. You then need to get a 5V line from another computer (The Red wire on a molex connector).
