If your motherboard was bricked your PC wouldn't boot at all.
Depends on the BIOS or motherboard make/model, but on some you can downgrade to an older version just same as updating it. However, if the BIOS flashing program incorporates a version check, it won't install if it detects a newer version already installed.
Motherboard manufacturer should have all BIOS versions (both old & new) on it's website.
Valuable lesson here - - never update BIOS unless you absolutely have to for compatibility reasons.
Updating it just because it's out of date is not a smart idea.
Same applies to motherboard drivers.
Thank you for your reply Philips. I will keep that in mind.
