well.. i got everything workin.. vista ultimate 32 installed..
but after i updated my bios and after my comp shuts down. it wont start up again. i mean the power comes back on but the screen is nothing!!!
i tried resetting the cmos but its still broken!!! HELP! and would returning and getting the exact same mobo fix the problem?
Classic BIOS update gone wrong. If it will not POST (try the usual stuff, take everything out but CPU, Video Card, 1 stick of memory) Clear the CMOS by removing the battery for 10 minutes or so.
If nothing works, you are now the proud owner of a dead motherboard.
Nothing you can do but return it if the BIOS chip is not removable.
If it is removable, you can contact ASUS for a new BIOS chip.
Good luck with the motherboard, and trying to get hold of anyone at ASUS as well if you are going to try for a new BIOS chip.
