I tried rebooting by pressing reset but it opens the bios in the utility again... Try using the clear CMOS jumper (2 pins that you can connect with a jumper) or bios reset button (some boards have a button instead of a jumper) on your motherboard to reset your bios settings. Glad everything worked out =)Many MOBOs / OSs have been fixed by this way, I work as Help Desk and it's a way that even non tech savvy could do without actually bringing the computer to my lab to remove CMOS battery.

If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.)Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. The final message will be "Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard.See also: How to install Windows 7 Before you start, heed this warning: if something goes wrong during the BIOS update, your computer could be rendered useless.If there's a power cut, or the computer gets turned off while updating, it could mean that it's unable to boot at all.A BIOS update might be all a user needs resolve them.

Though it's not without hazards, the process is fairly easy. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file.I thought it may be a good idea for future reference to use my favourable Google status to tell the world about my experiences flashing the BIOS on my Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard. In an effort to make the computer as up to date as possible, I decided to upgrade the BIOS. Asus has a unique feature on their boards that will let you flash directly from floppy or cd, without booting into dos first. Having no access to my floppy drive because of the buggy beta bios, I decided to use the CD that came with the motherboard and flash the BIOS version that's on it. Flashing went as planned (I'ld even say it went surprisingly well), but unfortunately the machine would not boot, not beep, not do anything...
