Asus P5bw-la Bios


Here is what I have:

- HP Media Center PC m7790n
- ASUS P5BW-LA v 1.05 (motherboard)
- Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0

I need to reflash the BIOS but cannot find the original BIOS for download anywhere. I tried looking on HP's site, but no luck.

Can anyone send me a copy of the BIOS files, or point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much.

I sent the computer to HP for a complete reinstall of the system. They would not give me a copy of the Bios (spoke to customer service for *long* time) and since the PC was still under warranty, the shipping & repair was free.

You´re probably better off that way, since flashing the BIOS is a little risky.
