I decided to update my mobo bios (biostar a55md2 )i saw it said that i shouldnt update my bios with the sistem running but i did anyway,i was downloading the update and as soon as it started i saw a message saying to reboot the sistem so i clicked it,and now my pc wont start,i get a no imput signal on my screen,i cleared the cmos but nothing happened,im going to buy the same mobo and a new processor this monday but i was wondering if there is any fix to this?

If it was due to an update of your motherboard BIOS, a new motherboard and CPU should fix this, but also if you downgrade your BIOS to previous version it should work. -That's if you can even access it.

No. Typically if you interrupt a BIOS flash it's pretty much irreversible. You'll need to get a new Mobo, which is good that you were to buy a new one anyway. The CPU should still work but the Mobo is most likely screwed.

Oh make sure you match the Mobo socket to your current CPU if you don't plan on replacing the CPU along with the board.

There are many things you could do , every bios have a recovery feature built in , it varies across bios , try putting your bios file in a usb and plug it into your back panel usb 2 port and see if you can get the system to give you recovery option on boot , but since you said no input signal I doubt it will be successful, then the only thing to do is change the bios chip , if it is removable chip you can remove it urself otherwise if it is soldered give it to the manufacture , they will change it for you, it should not cost much . DON'T BUY THE SAME MOBO , its just the bios chip ...also did you try clearing the bios while unplugging the power cord from the mobo ?
