Hello!

I, too, am in desperate need of this install file. Asus A7N8X-LA (Focus) v3.07 file name: "SP24001.exe". HP replaced the one in their FTP with a blank file (those jerks screw up my computer, then take away my only means of fixing it). I have locked completely up about 25 times since I stupidly updated my BIOS yesterday. I have an a384x, which seems to have the exact same motherboard (Focus = no integrated video version) as the others with this issue. I have even been adjusting all the fan voltages but still can't get the computer to stop locking up. It freezes so bad even Ctrl-Alt-Del won't do anything.

Please, if you have this file, post a link or email it to us that need it. My email is:

pietro623-bios@yahoo.com

Thanks much,

Aero

Hello Ken Banh, et al:

Thanks for your help. I was able to acquire the 3.07 BIOS install file SP24001.exe. Ken: I sent it to you from my hotmail account. Be careful! Good luck. My computer has been working great since I reinstalled the 3.07 BIOS.

I still can't believe HP would allow such a file to remain on their downloads sites months after people discovered it was a problem. I didn't know because I shouldn't have to surf for issues with an update before I download it but apparently I should with BIOS-type updates. I told HP tech support to take down the file -- somehow I doubt they really will do it. Heck, I even emailed Asus to tell them that BIOS version is bad, maybe somebody will look into it (doubt that too).

Oh well, at least everything worked out good in the end. Email me at my above address if anybody else is looking for this update. Make sure you have the "Focus" A7N8X-LA with no integrated video.

Thanks again,

Aero ENGR

OMFG. Why did this happen to me. Let me start off with i hope who ever made that bios and hp burn in hell. I dl that bios and got the same issue like you guys. frezzes and crashes. Well I tryed evrything, I even ask jesus himself and he told me i was screwed. Talk to 5 diferent hp techs and non of them could help me especially cuz i had no more warrenty. Well i took matters to my own hand and did several things. First i thought mabe its a power issue and i took out ram, didnt work then i tryed a destructive recovery - didnt work, Then i formated my hard drive and install windows xp from a friends cd and finally thought i fixed the issue after lossing everything (unfortunately i could not back up files because every time i used nero comp would crash) and still did not work. So i said the hell with everything and bought a new motherboard which should arrive in 2 days. Why did god forsake me , WHY. Well thank you for solving issue and ima send this forum to hp and make sure they remove that crap. If you can send me the 3.07 version at jfernandez2@bellsouth.net so at least i can fix that motherboard and explain how did you find it because i looked everywhere.

Hi all, and thanks for the bios link Morten.

I could do with a little more help:

When booting to DOS, I've used both the AFUDOS and NEWBIOS programs to write. The newbios.exe asks me to press A, which I do, then it says "Installing flash..." but puts me back to the A:/ prompt without doing anything.

I've also used afudos with the command

A:/afudos /i307

which does this:

Reading file...100%
Erasing flash...100%
Writing flash...100%
Verifying flash...100%

Then I am back to A:/. I would assume thats the new bios updated, however the revision is still 3.12 in the bios spalsh screen, and inside the bios itself.

I really hope theres something you can advise me on because I've been stuck with these freezes and reboots for days now and finding this site was a blessing :D

Regards,
Scott

A:\afudos /i307.rom this should be the right command to run, i'am not sure what went wrong with your system but try again, it might help

Best regards Morten

Thanks Morten, the error I made was by saving the current ROM first with the /o command and I was then loading it back in, doh.

I have it back to 3.07 now. Unfortunately I'm still locking up just like before so it can't have been a BIOS issue :/
