M3a32 mvp updating the bios
Namely there is a hardware bug present in current Phenom processors which can cause problems in instances where software uses nested memory pages.For the short term, AMD has come up with a solution that they call a TLB patch that effectively disables the 2MB L3 cache, working as a solution but crippling performance which is not something the Phenom 9500/9600s can afford to forfeit at this stage.Runnning the application "ASUS UPDATE", from the asus website latest version Asus Updt_V71401 and its previous version.i have the bios ROM file on my desktop and when i select "Update BIOS from file" click on the rom file, the Asus Update program disappears.The instructions presented withing this tutorial must be followed correctly, or you can damage your Windows 7 installation even further.This tutorial is designed to help recover from a bad registry that is causing the startup repair loop.

I checked with Asus, and confirmed this is a board that can accept socket AM3 chips with a BIOS flash to a more recent version. I used EZ Flash and flashed from a USB stick a I got direct from the Asus site. Googling around reveals this is a VERY common problem with Asus boards in this generation, and it always happened when using EZ Flash. I was only able to successfully flash one version behind the new one I flashed.

Currently my bios is Version 1301, and the latest and greatest bios just came out with tons of major fixes BIOS verion 1406, i even dl couple other of the same version differnt parts of my drive.
one thing i should mention is when i updated to this current version my pc and when it worked and so it was going to reboot, while it was rebooting it was taking a slowprocess at turning on and what i did was rebooted the pc again with the safety switch, did i hurt my current bios?
