Hi there, who can help, please?

The computer is only a few weeks old and I had some CPU temperature reading issues with Asus PC Probe 2 and I thought that downloading a newer version PC Probe might do the trick.
The new PC Probe 2.250 did not install but required for the BIOS version (12/26/2005) to be updated with a BIOS version (09/22/97 or later?). Well, I could find no such thing but decided that the youngest BIOS P5(LGA775) Version 0702 would be fine.
Not so, the PC no longer boots and I think that some BIOS auto detection of IDE devises are of concern.

Primary IDE Master [Not Detected]
Primary IDE Slave [LITE-ON DVDRW SHM-]
Secondary IDE Master [ST3120023A] <this is actually HD 2, no OS
Secondary IDE Slave [Not Detected]
Third IDE Master [Not Detected]
Third IDE Slave [WDC WD2000JS-22MHB] <this is where the OS is, Win XP
Secondary IDE Master [Not Detected]
Secondary IDE Slave [Not Detected]

No trouble booting when hitting (F8) and manually selecting the boot devise.

Currently I have reinstalled the old BIOS but there were no changes to the above settings, the system will not boot unless I use the manually (F8) and select the boot drive.

Thank you very much for your effort.

Chris K.

so there is nothing on the monitor when you turn on the pc ?
if you see anything on the monitor it is not the bios , try clearing your cmos, since you have flashed the bios

clearing the cmos must have done the trick - she is all sweet again.
Thank you much for your help.
Here in Australia it is 2 AM and now I can go to bed feeling good.
