Chapter 8 Eee PC Flash
BIOS Tool operation SOP
introduce
ENG EC is connected the PC and Eee PC,controlled the program by PC。It
should be connected COM cable to PC and KB cable to Eee PC。ENG EC
contains 4 ports:2 KB connects, 1 COM port,1 USB port。ENG EC is
depicted the photo below。
The ENG EC’s power supply by 2 USB port,COM port is communication
the PC and ENG EC between,KB connect have support power supply
and communication。
Preparations 1
Tools and cables are needed as shown of the pictures below:
One PC with COM Port
ENG EC and cables (KB cable , COM cable and USB cable)
1.KB cable
Preparations 2
2.COM cable
There are two kinds of COM cables, direct link
and cross link:
Please make sure the cable adopted is direct link type, otherwise FLASH
BIOS can not be continued.
√

╳
COM cable should be direct linked type.
Preparations 3
3.USB cable
One Eee PC to flash BIOS.
Program for Flashing BIOS should be installed on PC.
Connection 1
Connect ENG EC to PC via USB cable
Plug ENG EC directly to PC is also feasible
Connection 2
Make a connection between ENG EC
and PC via COM cable
Connect KB cable to Eee PC
(NOTICE: Please make sure both Adaptor
and Battery are removed from Eee PC
before connecting KB cable)
Remove Keyboard from Eee PC and unplug
KB cable
Connection 3
Connect KB cable to keyboard,
(Please notice the cable direction)
The other side of KB cable should be connected to ENG EC
Please notice the difference between the
two KB connectors when connecting KB cable
Connection 4
KB cable is often connected as the picture shows below
Finally please check all connections, and power on Eee PC
(Either by Adaptor or Battery)
FLASH BIOS 1
Copy FLASH BIOS program to OA
Right click run.cmd and edit
FLASH BIOS 2
Type parameters into run.cmd
Explanation: -C1 for COM1 port, -C2 for COM2 port set the parameter due to the
actua COM port that connected
-S115, Set bit rate, DO NOT alter it
701.ROM, file name of ROM image, type the full file name include suffix
NOTICE: Please put ROM image, enespi.exe and run.cmd in one same folder.
If you typed the incorrect COM port parameter or the ROM image name
and still executed run.cmd, the dialog window would be disappeared after
a sudden flash.
FLASH BIOS 3
After checking the parameter, execute run.cmd, you can start FLASH BIOS,
the window would be shown as the picture below
When FLASH completed, the window would be disappeared.
NOTICE: IF you found the system halts at “Checking Flash Manufacture ID
and Device ID…”,or it didn’t respond for a long period at “WWWW…”.
Please check the USB and KB cable are well connected
(remove adaptor and battery of Eee PC before unplug KB cable).
Wait until upgrade complete and remove adaptor
and battery
NOTICE:DO NOT remove power when FLASHING BIOS.
When FLASHING completed, power should be cut off firstly for Eee PC
(Remove both adaptor and battery), then unplug KB cable.
Problem Analysis
When FLASH BIOS completed, if POWER LED doesn’t light in power on,
BIOS was not correctly flashed, please FLASH BIOS again.
If POWER LED and WIFI LED are both on, clear CMOS,
if the issue still existed, please FLASH BIOS again.

Chapter 10 New Card Debug Card SOP
New Card Debug Card Function Introduction
1.If M/B reserved the NEWCARD debug circuit, then we can use Newcard
connector to show post code via LPC or SMBUS interface
(Priority: LPC>SMBUS)
2.If M/B reserved the LPC circuit to 12P FPC connector, then we can use
12P FFC cable to connector Newcard Debug card and show post code via
LPC interface.
3.If M/B didn’t reserved debug circuit, then we can only use Newcard
connector to show post code via SMBUS interface.
Note: ASUS BIOS support SMBUS post code after Intel Santa Rosa platform.
New Card Debug Card Operation Introduction
1.DIP switch Function:

Choose SIO 4E/4F (ps2)
ps1: debug card must have LPC/FWH ROM with BIOS
code.
ps2: Choose SIO address , avoiding the confliction with
M/B SIO address.
2. LPC/FWH ROM connector: Socket for LPC/FWH
ROM(Can’t use ISA ROM)
3. LED function:
POWER-ON LED (When +3v is available, LED turn ON)
Debug ROM LED (When switch1 ON, LED turn ON)
FLASH BIOS LED (When switch3 ON, LED turn ON)
Chapter11 NB DRAM DEBUG CARD SOP
SO-DIMM Debug Card user guide R1.0
SO-DIMM Debug Card with the SMBUS interface debug card(The funtion is the same
with Newcard Debug card via SMbus interface),It provides two type ---DDRII&DDRIII,
when you use it, please plug it in the SO-DIM socket.About it's component intorduction
is below the photo . When Debug card show "00", please ask BIOS RD to check if the
program code of SMBUS interface debug is supported this model or not.

Chapter 12 On Board Memory Test SOP
On Board Memory Test SOP
• This test program can test on board memory.
• There are two test mode:
1. On board memory fail causes NB can’t boot
(only for K40IJ,K50IJ)
2. NB can boot
On Board Memory Test SOP
1. If on board memory fail causes NB can’t boot
STEP1:Flash BIOS
STEP2:Some model don’t have debug card connector.(eg.K50IJ MB
R2.1), so you need to weld the connector, the PN is below:
12G18330120A FPC CON 12P,0.5mm,S/T,SMT JST/12FLT-SM2TB(LF)(SN)
STEP3:Please insert the debug card and boot up
On Board Memory Test SOP
STEP4:Check the debug code, please exchange the RAM chip as below
table (eg. If debug code is 29, please exchange U2302). If debug code is
AA or 88, it means the memory is good, please wait the confirmation
ended (about 10 minutes).
On Board Memory Test SOP
STEP5:There are two kinds of memory chip that we used, NANYA
and SAMSUNG, please note which kind you want exchange, the
PN is below
NANYA
03G15162F210
SAMSUNG
03G15162F311
STEP6:Flash the original BIOS
On Board Memory Test SOP
2.
If the NB can boot up,
STEP1:Please run mt211.exe in DOS.
To take K40IJ,K50IJ for an example: One DIMM have 64DQ, please check the last
bit of failing address first, if the last bit is 0 or 8, the failing address is DQ 0~31 group,
if 4 or C, is DQ 32~63 group.
On Board Memory Test SOP
The next, you need to check the Err-Bits, 0000ff00=0000,0000,00
00,0000,1111,1111,0000,0000, refer to below table, Err-Bits is 8~15
On Board Memory Test SOP
Warning: Because the last bit of failing address is
0 or 8 now, is DQ 0~31 group, and Err-Bits is 8~15
(0000ff00), so you need to find DQ8~DQ15 in PCB
Repair.
But if the last bit of failing address is 4 or C, is DQ
32~63 group, Err-Bits is 8~15(0000ff00), you must
add 32 bits, find DQ40(8+32)~DQ47(15+32) in PCB
Repair
On Board Memory Test SOP
Search DQ8~15,find
M_A_DQ8~15 are all
in U2302 on top
On Board Memory Test SOP
Press bottom and
find M_A_DQ8~15
Are also in U2402
On Board Memory Test SOP
So you can exchange U2302 and U2402, and U23XX
should be take priority over U24XX.
Warning: If the last bit of failing address is 4 or C,
search DQ40~DQ47, find they are all in U2306 and
U2406.
