I Have recently tried to overclock my system by a small amount ,from 200mhz to 208 ( did'nt change the multiple x11.5 )every thing seemed OK but the cpu was running a bit hot (55c) so I put every thing back to how it was ,and now I get a bluescreen(sometimes when downloading) "bla bla Device driver caused........?
A freind suggested I flash the BIOS ,but when I went to the ASUS site the process looked very complicated and frought with danger! is there a better way?
My system:
Asus A7N8X-Deluxe, AthlonXP3200,2xmatched pair 512 corsair RAM,120Gb seagate HD, XP SP2

Hi horlor44. The blue screen message says "driver" and it could be a driver, could be updating the bios will solve it, a whole lot of could be. There is always some degree of risk in flashing the bios, but my experience has been that if you follow the instructions carefully, it works. It has for me anyway. You can use the event log for more information on your crash event, go to start, my computer, right click, manage, event viewer. Look for ones with a red x corresponding to the time of the crash. Right click,properties to view details. You can also send a message to M$ and view their knowledge base for additional details and possible clues for a fix. Over clocking is not for everyone. Those who choose to do this do so at their own risk.
