  1. 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.
  2. oh wow.. i didnt do that yet.. do you think returning and getting the exact same motherboard would work?
