    well i built a computer for a friend but the mobo is a bit outdated and doesnt support semprons and gives me the error "error 0163 press F1 to continue"
    it boots to windows and everything works fine but pushing f1 every time you turn on/restart your computer can be quite annoying

    so i need to flash the bios but i dont have a floppy drive...
    so is there anyway to flash it using a cd-drive

    btw the mobo is Asus K8V-X with a sempron 2800+ S754


    Thanks

    Isn't there a utility for an online update?

    ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.
