    Don't know how useful this info will be, but it looks like (from what I researched) these are possibly for your motherboard. You would need to confirm of course.

    P5LP-LE Motherboard BIOS Update (Version: 3.19 (1 Oct 2007)

    P5LP-LE Motherboard BIOS Update (Version:5.23 (05-06-2008)


    And finally this thread at Bios-Mods. I am sure someone here can point you to what you need, if applicable. I believe the files you need are probably here already.

    This is just info, hopefully someone else will be able to help more.

    This is the request thread for Phoenix. Might want to read through it first. They might have what you need already.

    M7160N comes with XP means bios is 3.xx
    file is sp26758.exe 317.rom

    heres 3.19 with slic 2.1 http://www.sendspace.com/file/fi8qs0
    and heres 3.17 slic 2.1 http://www.sendspace.com/file/lk68ud
    if 3.19 is a no go use the awdflash from 3.19 zip to flash the 317_slic.rom (rename without _SLIC)
    (the bat file, right click edit). change the 319.rom to 317.rom

    if it dont flash dont force it..
    to recover u will need a floppy disk.. nt sure if cd or hdd or usb work.. but it didnt for me once.
