Hi

I tried to get into bios 2 today but all I get id the pc turning off after 2 or 3 seconds and starting again in a continuos loop. Is there some thing I am doing wrong here or is the second bios corrupted and if so..how do I fix it.

I would like to have both bioses available to me on this board.

thanks in advance.

hello , Griff
You can try clean the CMOS or flashback the previous version
Doe it can access into the 2 bios?

Try clearing CMOS first and/or flashing BIOS BIOS Flashback method. http://event.asus.com/2012/mb/USB_BIOS_Flashback_GUIDE/

If that fails you might think about getting a new BIOS chip for the board...very easy to replace...best place to get new chip is here http://www.bios-chip24.com/epages/63730052.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/63730052/Products/30403 will come with latest BIOS flashed.

What is the actual method for replacing a bios chip? Any guides or pictures showing this procedure?

The BIOS chip is not soldered in...just slotted down into socket. You can get a BIOS removal tool..but frankly a bit of ingenuity and you can pop the chip out with any piece of suitably shaped plastic...or even a small screw driver or needle nosed pliers covered with a bit of cloth...etc. etc.

The BIOS chip is notched on one side...just make a note of which and replace with new chip in same orientation

Some dreadful YouTube videos here....but they serve to get the idea across
