I would say piss on 'em.
I got this board (a7v133-c) in oem box cause it was real cheap from compgeeks. I probably won't buy another asus as there are other boards that are looking real good like epox. This board works great though.

newer BIOS company
Ok, so I got a BIOS subscription from http://www.biosman.com
Now whenever a new bios is released, I get it in the mail!! The first one came with an extraction tool! This rocks! This is even better then having two chips, because the ones on the board are both old.
So far I have recieved 2 chips in the mail within 1 week of their release from Abit!

ASUS BIOS FIX
Ok Guys, I'll give you a solution that worked perfect for me.
I have an Asus Crosshair and yesterday I were playing with this program called MyLogo I get exactly the same problem, I start looking over the internet
and all the solutions I get were: Replace your Bios chip or replace your motherboard.
Obviously that wasn't the answer I wanted, so I keep searching for something and I found an answer from a guy in a forum and that's the same info I'll
give to you because I did it and worked 100% for me.
My case was with the Asus Crosshair that have a LCD window for diagnostics, but I think it can be done on all ASUS motherboards w/o a problem, just the
small issue that w/o the LCD window you are blind but still can fix it.
Ok lets start with this:
After using MyLogo the sistem ask for a reboot, you reboot and it shows your nice picture or new logo and get stuck in there, you can't do nothing at
this moment because there is not keyboard, mouse, hard disk, Optical drive or anything working, you're just looking at your new image and obviously
scared about what happened in there.
First thing you'll need here is a good and operational floppy unit and a diskette, download from the ASUS site the bios and bios utility you need, you
can do that here at the address I'm giving to you, just select your right system at the dropdown menus:
When you have your right Bios utility (For DOS) and your right Bios file (usually a .BIN file) follow this process:
Format the diskette and add the system to it, you can do this going to My PC, right click on the floppy, format and when the format windows appear,
select the option at the bottom to put the system files and hit the format button, it will start the format and adding system process, wait until you
get the window alert that say everything is ok.
Now go to the diskette and delet all the files EXCEPT: command.com, autoexec.bat, msdos.sys, io,sys, the rest of the files you can delete them w/o
problems, and you will need to delete them or you won't be able to copy the Bios utility and the bios file because remember a floppy is just 1.44mb of
space, now, if you finished deleting the useless files from the diskette now copy in to it the the bios utility and the bios file on my case the bios
utility is a file called AWDFLASH.EXE and my bios update is 0802.BIN.
Now right click on the file called autoexec.bat and hit Edit or open it with your notepad.
Add the next 2 lines to it
AWDFLASH 0802.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r
Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 0802.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using and save the file with the changes.
The parameters are explained here:
py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot
For other bios or more info about this you can check here: :: BIOSMAN Inc :: AMI and AWARD :: BIOS Recovery
If you get to this step, then Congratulations now you have your diskette ready to save your PC.
Now, let's go to the PC with the bad BIOS or CMOS.
Remove the video card, disconnect all hard drives and optical drives and usb drives or memory cards or whatever you have for storage, just let the floppy connected.
Turn on your PC with the diskette inserted, and wait the time you waited before to get your logo on screen and a litte more, that means until your computer get stuck again, on Asus Crosshair users you can also check the Back LCD window of your motherboard until it says CMOS ERROR or BIOS ERROR.
Now when you're 100% sure you get to the point when your computer is stuck or the LCD window show the error of bios/cmos, hit the F1 key from your keyboard, and you'll see your floppy when it start reading and doing something you can't see because you have no video card installed at this time, give it like 10 minutes to finish.
How to know that is already done?
When your floppy stops basically, but give it enough time because sometimes stops and start again so let it stop and keep that state for at least 10 minutes so you'll be sure that your bios has been updated. On Asus Crosshair you will see that the system will reboot itself on the LCD window and this window will show back again the CMOS ERROR or BIOS ERROR message, don't worry because that message is because you have no video card installed.
Now turn off your computer, reinstall your video card, turn on your computer and check your bios, everything should be ok now, turn off your computer again and plug all your hardware and start again, reconfigure your bios and that's it.
Hope it help to solve your problem, I followed those steps and get it fixed at the first time I did it, so I think it can work for everybody.
