If all else fails and the bios that you flashed on the motherboard is bad, you basically need a new bios chip IF the bios chip is replaceable. Judging by a picture of your motherboard (if it was the correct picture), your bios chip may be soldiered on, in which case the board may be dead. If you can replace the chip, you can get them here: www.biosman.com

It's in your motherboards manual. If you don't have the manual it can be downloaded on Asus's support site.

Yes. It may also help to take the battery out for about five minutes.

How exactly did you flash your bios. Did you flash it while running windows or in the bios? And take out the battery for five minutes put it back in and try again.

Remember to also unplug your psu for a while, it has helped in clearing the CMOS when the battery is out... :D

i flashed with awdflash throu bios, on this flash it was weird because the first few (around 5-10) blocks were erased and programed, on other flashes the first few blocks were not removed and not programed.

Sounds to me that you didnt tick the flash all part of winflash where it turns all the blocks the same color prior to flashing....As mentioned at this point if the BIOS is socketed, concider yourself luck and get a new bios chip from www.biosman.com .

Other wise if the bios is not socketed, I suggest 2 things...


1 Go look for new mobo, flash has fubar'd that chip.

2 try to RMA, and be honest and tell them it was a bad flash, see if they will help you!
