I have a p2b-f motherboard from asus. I am unable to upgrade my bios. my old bios date is 2-9-99 and the bios that I want date is 8-18-00. when i check the website, it says that the newest revision is 1013 and I have 1009. the mesage that I get is " the model of bios image doesn't match to the one of bios rom" How do i get around this problem. Win xp OS

Did you check the readme that came with the BIOS or on the website. Sometimes this warning shows up for valid upgrades. I'd make sure the upgrade IS valid before flashing the BIOS, because if you flash the wrong one, bad things happen. :eek:

I did and this bios upgrade is supoose to allow Hard drives larger than 65gb. since i upgraded to Xp, my computer will not shut down by itself like it used to. The same problem happened on my other computer and I flashed the bios and the problem went away. I am using the asusupdate program and not getiing anywhere.

Well, I'd contact Asus tech support for the answer to the question of whether it's the right BIOS. As far as XP not turning off the machine, did you check if "Use APM" is checked in the Control Panel power options?
