My System Specs

Default Somewhere to get older Asus BIOS

Seems my old P5Q Deluxe Mobo suddenly wanted to kick in the die hard BIOS and reverted all the way back to the original version it came with. It was running 0804 stable, but newer versions has added features for newer processors that the Q6600 didn't support and the newer bios did not have the ability to disable them which caused a plethora of BSOD's so I stuck at 0804. I checked Asus's download page and it has nothing anywhere near that old. Is anyone aware of an archive or even FTP somewhere that would have the older versions?

Solid caps, besides it was back in 2008 when I had the issue, the board was only a few months old.

IRQ not less than equal

Definitely was the 0803 BIOS, which I have found. Wonder why it suddenly decided to revert back to the original BIOS though. I'd better check the CMOS battery.
