Hi

You said you currently have a beta version of the bios & you tried to update it to a full version. According to Asus's website, the latest bios version available for this board is a beta so I don't see how you can have a later full version.
When you first power the system on, you should see the bios version stated on the very first screen.
EG
ASUS A7V8X BIOS Revision : xxxx
Let me know what revision is stated (the 'xxxx' will actually be a string of numbers obviously)

Can you also confirm which video card you are now using, the Radeon or the Nvidia?
What do you mean when you say you have disabled the video card? How did you 'disable' it?

One more thing....Can you please open up the case & look at the motherboard (turn off first & do not touch actual board). Look to see if there is a sticker with '333MHz FSB SUPPORT' written on it. This sticker should be located somewhere in the lower right corner of the board (ie. to the right of the PCI slots & below the memory slots).
Let me know if you see this sticker or not.
