Thanks Ingtar for your fast response, will take a look, but how would i update my bios if i cant even get an image on the screen? would i need a different cpu that is compatible and then update try to update the bios?
exactly how you'd fix it yourself. yes. That's why i suggested you contact Asus. They probably will be willing to send you either a replacement board with the proper bios preloaded, or a new bios chip and instructions and the stupid tool needed for changing the physical bios chip yourself (assuming they still make mbs with interchangeable bios chips. I might be dating myself here, but i remember doing this a number of times once upon a time... but it's been a long time since i even considered the possibility, not sure if this can still be done, it's been over 2 decades)
and yeah... a computer repair guy probably would be able to get you up and running pretty quick if its a bios issue.
