The bios is here (do not use the beta bios)
http://support.asus......=K8N-E Deluxe


You will also need the Afudos BIOS update tool V2.11 to do it (find it at above page)
The instructions for its use are here:

You might consider updating your system bios as well, also at the above)

no, it means that one stick may be bad, even though it passed muster

I've had sticks of ram that test OK on ramtest,prime95 physical ram testers and still cause freezes in one any system I put it in.

If it works with just the one without freezing, contact the ram maker---most ram is guaranteed for life
