I can't find your notebook version.. 900 isnt in the ASUS support download section.

You need to put it on a usb pen drive, and boot with it.

you have to press alt+f2 on startup to run the bios flash process but when i does it, it says usb device found, reading file 900.rom and then it says file 900.rom not found on usb device???????

ive extracted it from the winrar file so its the actual file on my usb stick.

Hm. Can you put it on a CD at all? I know it's a waste, lol, but I did that with my ASUS P5K on my desktop, worked fine.
