I have an ASUS A8N-VM CSM MB and need to upgrade the bios for the sound to work.
I have downloaded the file identified by the BioAgent Plus: A8N-VM-ASUS-CSM-1001.ROM. What do I do now? I am a bit worried I'll stuff something up.

Now you stick it on a flash drive formatted as fat32

Then, when you boot up hit Alt+F2 and select your BIOS file..

When I do that it only checks the floppy drive or cd rom and not the Flash drive.

Open the case up to make sure, its that mobo. Dont rely on a program

Yup, it'll be the mobo, it probably doesnt support booting from USB flash drive (using Alt-F2). You'll have to have a floppy. Or Make the USB flash drive bootable (hopefully theres an option in the BIOS to boot from it).

You may have to change the filename of the BIOS update. It wont be the name you posted, it'll be shorter (If you have a floppy)

Who told you that you needed to upgrade the BIOS for sound to work?
