Default Bio's Update

I'm going to Flash my bio's because I keep getting this problem while during games my system will totally lock up, and I'm forced to physically hold the power button for 5 seconds.

Well after trying everything, latest software drivers (for video card), upgraded my cooling system in my tower for my video card, ect.

I've decided I might as well try to Flash my bios. I have an ASUS A7V8X-X (thats where I got the driver v. 1013)

My question is: I never have flashed my BIO's before, and just a little cautious doing it. the file saved itself as an ".awd" file. What are the proper steps to flashing my bio's?? --

Thanks.

You have to get the aflash221.zip file from that site. That is the utility to update the BIOS. Look in your manual for complete instructions on how to flash the BIOS.

I warn you i had a similar problem
FLASHING THE BIOS WILL NOT SOLVE ANYTHING BUT IT WILL JUST PUT YOUR BOARD IN DANGER
i suggest you to check your rams for errors
search google for memory error checkers
