What do you mean it doesn't work?
Program won't load, won't accept the Update file or what?
I would reinstall the ASUS Update program. Much easier to do.
If not Find the FAQ On ASUS Website, they will have an answer for BIOS Flashing.

Why do you need to flash it anyways?

ASUSUpdate will say "Connected", and than it will stay "Connected" for 2 minutes or so, than it will say "connecting" again, and after about 3 or 4 attempts, the program stops responding. This is on all 3 servers also...

Asus Update generally won't work if you set it to download and install a BIOS update. What I do instead is go to Asus' website, manually download the BIOS update I want (save it anywhere), and tell Asus Update I want to "Update BIOS from file". Then just select the file I downloaded and let it do the rest.

I've done it a couple times already on this comp.
