Situs sex online Bios is updating ec firmware

Here is how the header pins are numbered: Here is a table showing which header pins should be connected to what parallel pins. Here's what my cable looks like (Note: it looks like the power lead is connected to the DB25 but in fact it is solder to the ribbon, it goes to pin 1 on the header) If you use a cable similar to mine, open it up and desolder the ribbon from the connector.

bios is updating ec firmware-70

The bios isn't removable, so surely there's some kind of device they plug into to reflash it for you I thought. Next to the BIOS chip, to the left of the south bridge, is an undocumented 7 pin connector labeled SPI_J1.

After a lot research I stumbled upon a few pages (linked at the bottom) that documented the type of cable necessary and the software to use this port to reflash the bios.

First, you need to run cwsdpmi.exe, then run spipgm.

(Note: you have to run before SPIPGM each time.) It will ask for the total size of the flashrom, enter 1024 If SPIPGM reports your chip id as fffffffh then something isn't right. SPIPGM has several functions, such as erasing the BIOS first. Giving credit where credit is due, without these sites I never would have figured this out.

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.

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).i knew that when i next rebooted the computer: it would be a brick. But before i rebooted i transferred the bios backup, the new bios, and Asus DOS-based flash utility to another computer. This Asus motherboard has a fail-safe bios recovery called WARNING: Never use the ASUS Windows based bios flash utility.There have been scores of people with the same issue, if only I had known before hand. In perhaps a moment of great stupidity and laziness, I reflashed the bios on my ASUS P5B Deluxe using the ASUS windows based flash utility.So I retry, now it won't even try to write the bios. The motherboard is supposed to have a built in bios recovery mode, but it seems that was wiped out as well by the Windows flash utility.Having no other choice I rebooted the machine and hoped for the best. It was time to send it back to ASUS so they could reflash it.By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie Policy, Privacy Policy, and our Terms of Service.
