New BIOS for Asus m4a78t-e motherboard

I've started one thread about my motherboard/BIOS (or I don' know what) problem. It's here - thread. There I managed that new BIOS for my motherboard could help.

I have visited Asus site, found there my board, but I am not sure about which/where to get that BIOS. It seems like they have updates there, not complete versions.

(Just to make this thread more "self-dependent", here is list of my "symptoms":
1. After pressing "on" button, computer gets turned on, so far, it looks like standard start.
2. Fans are rotating, hardisks are (probably) running too.
3. Problem occurs when POST information are expected to be showed. Instead, nothing happens. Display keeps clear, and in no signal mode.
4. There are no beeps - my BIOS beeps once (VGA detected) standardly. Also, if I remove all RAM, can't hear any beeps.)

Please help me, I am kinda hopeless for this. I am student. buying new board would be kinda killful for me. Thanks.

All the BIOS versions on their side are complete BIOSes. Use the newest one, or the one that is specifically mentioned in your manual for use with the Crash Free BIOS, if one.

By the way, I think it would be a better idea to not spread your threads out, just you don't know which BIOS version to use.

Ok. So the CrashFree BIOS thing does not work for me. Also, I currently haven't got any floppy drive for use. Is there any other way to flash corrupted BIOS on Asus m4a78t-e motherboard ? thanks.
