Hello,
I had similar randmom crash problems with my P4C800 Deluxe, but I found a solution, that works fine for me: updating the Intel Chipset Driver Utility to version 5.02 (which supports the USB 2.0 Controller) solved my problems, there was no crash afterwards

Greetings

Sad BIOS Update did NOT work

Ok, so I updated my BIOS first to 1008 and then to 1011. Same problem of system freezing as before.

What's left to try now?

I tried looking for the Intel Chipset Driver Utility v5.02, but could not find it on the Asus website. Also, is the driver update the same for the E version of the motherboard?

What would cause the computer to freeze when idle?? Intensive CPU tests and RAM tests don't seem to find any problems. Is there any other probable hardware cause? How would I test the motherboar itself? (But wouldn't a motherboard problem show up at more times than just during system being idle?)

Frankly, I'm beginning to get genuinly frustrated here. My old 800Mhz Gateway was slow, but at least it didn't freeze all the time!

Specs:
Asus p4c800 deluxe 800mhz bus
p4 2.6c HT
Twinx corsair 3200llpt (2x 256 mb)
400W PSU
120Gb Seagate HD
Ati Radeon 9600 pro

My computer radomy restarts and crashes all the time mostly when i start up my computer, and especially when i play a game, if i can ever get a chance to install one. Windows error report says that it is from a memory error and suggested their windows memory diagnostic tool, which i used and it game me hundreds of errors, i also used the memorey tester at www.memtest86.com site that was previously suggested. that one gave me just as many errors also.
i am assuming that it is the ram that is the problem, is there any way to fix this or is my ram broken and should be returned
thanks in advance

The Intel Chipset Driver Utility can be found on the Intel page (support/download section), I Think it's also on the Asus site, but I'm not quite sure

Welcome to the forum. What are your RAM timings, your voltages, and other bios settings set to?

I would suggest that you test the modules again but please make sure you have the latest bios and that you have followed the read me files for each version you have flashed. If not it can cause this error. If suspected I would test the modules in another MB. Please load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.75 Volts and Disable Legacy USB Support and please do not set any of the performance options and test the modules again if you still get errors then test them one at a time.

The problem is the way you updated the BIOSes won't work. 1008 has to be loaded and updated using DOS as stated in their directions. Then you have to do 1009, 1010, and 1011 using the ALT-F2 built in flasher. You can't skip from 1008 directly to the highest version as ASUS for one reason or another doesn't have all updates in the flash so 1009 only updates part of the stuff while 1010 updates another part, same with 1011.

Good advice, Almighty1.

I'll re-flash my bios, but I can't find the BIOS for 1009. I've downloaded 1008, 1010, and 1011, but can't find 1009. Does anybody have a copy?

Also, I applied the Intel Chipset update described above, but that didn't help any.

I've contacted Asus tech. support. We'll see what they have to say.

I have the same problem as andrew82, except I cannot even find version 1008 either, only 1010 and 1011. I have looked all over Asus' FTP ( ftp.asus.com.tw ) and their downloads page (under 'All' and under 'Bios'). I am not sure where you guys are finding these bioses.

Also, be aware that my particular motherboard is the P4C800 Deluxe. Some of you have the E version and that definitely makes a difference when it comes to bios roms.

I have the ZIP file of 1008 Final for the P4C800 NON-E. Email me if you want me to send it to you.

Big Grin BIOS Updates Galore!

I posted my question on a half dozen or more message boards to see if anyone out there might have a solution. One of the guys posted this link to download BIOS updates for motherboards.

I found the 1008, 1009, 1010, 1011 BIOS updates for the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe, and the site also has updates for other Asus motherboards.

ftp://ftp.cizgi.com.tr/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478

This site is worth bookmarking for future needs!
