Update The Bios On An Asus P5q3

Update the BIOS on an Asus P5Q3

The Asus P5Q3 motherboard features an LGA775 socket designed to work with Intel Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Pentium Dual Core and Intel Celeron processors. The P5Q3 can handle up to 16 GB of 1800-MHz DDR3 memory. Periodically, Asus will issue updated BIOS files to expand the capability of their motherboards, or issue patch fixes for problems that may arise. Updating your motherboard's BIOS is a relatively simple task if you have the right software and/or hardware at your disposal.


1. Turn on your computer and wait for the operating system to load. Open your web browser and navigate to the ASUS support webpage with updated BIOS files for your computer (see Resources). Select the appropriate product, series and motherboard model from the drop-down menus and click the "Search" button to continue.

2. Select your operating system from the pop-up box and press the "Search" button. Click on "BIOS" to display the available BIOS updates for your motherboard. Choose the latest version by clicking on either "Global (DLM)", "Global" or "China".

3. Type the characters shown on the webpage and press "Submit". When the download dialog box appears on your screen, choose "Save" and press "OK". After you finish downloading the BIOS file, insert your USB memory stick in an available slot on your computer and copy the file onto the memory stick.

4. Restart your computer and press "ALT" and "F2" simultaneously before your operating system loads. When the "Asus EZ Flash 2 Utility" appears on your screen, press the down "arrow" key to highlight the BIOS file on your USB drive. Press "Enter" to start updating the BIOS.

5. Allow the new file to completely load; do not turn off your computer during the loading process. Exit the EZ Flash 2 Utility by pressing "ESC".
