PackardBell Asus M2N NVM motherboard
















I got a slow old PC from a friend. a PackardBell  with slow sempron 3000+ AMD processor and only 512mb ram ind it.  I discovered  that the motherboard (Asus_M2N_NVM/s)  had the same socket(am2) as the newer AMD duo cores(am2+).

I  tried to put a athlon x2 5000+ in the socket, but  the motherboard just give me some error beep codes. i Searched the net,  found out that people had a lot of problems with flashing this exact motherboard, because it was made for packard bell. Asusdo not make bios updates for this motherboard and i dont know who has made the 0501.

well somebody did!

The board is now running flawlessly with athlon x2 5000+, 3 gb ram, dual channel,  internal bus speed:1000mhz, each ram channel 667 mhz.

    • Flashing the bios


  • First  download bios update 0501(bin-file)  save it somewhere on your PC.(i found the file here ), but unfortunately i got the  spy-ware “babylon search” installed at the same time, so don’t.  send me a massage and i will E-mail the bios update 0501.bin  to you.
