version and now i can't overclock and its ****ing me off I duno

of samsung ram and a
geforce 5500 grafics card and a 320 gig maxtor sata

Re: restore default bios
Some BIOS tools only deliver a warning that the user is attempting
to update with an older BIOS. Other tools prevent the user from
succeeding (but there could be an override in the interface).
Checking around, it looks like the Asrock flashing tool, is actually
the AMI flashing tool. You could try playing with this one, and
see if the options offered are the same. I tried looking at
both the Asrock (ASRFLASH) and the AMI versions, and I don't see
any options for forcing a flash as such. Note that this AMI
download offered, is older than the tool that Asrock is offering.
I can see this message in the code:
Warning:The BIOS file is older than the current system BIOS
Since that is a "Warning" and not an "Error", it should
allow the flash operation to proceed. What exact response are
you getting when you try to flash the old version ?
