It's somewhat difficult to answer your question if you don't provide more info. At a minimum, provide the CPU, motherboard and BIOS versions.

You didn't save the old BIOS before flashing a new version? If your CPU sSpec is HD9850WCJ4BGH, you shouldn't get that error. Did you clear the CMOS after flashing the BIOS? What was the issue that prompted you to flash the BIOS?

What is the sSpec of your CPU? AMD seem to have more than one version of the PHENOM x4 9850 (95W and 125W).

You can't change the wattage of the CPU. You need to install a 95W or less CPU that's supported and flash the old BIOS back or replace your CPU with one that's on the supported list. The sSPEC of your CPU should be on the retail box.

You will need to reflash the bios, but if you can't swap the cpu to do so, the only option would be replacing the physical BIOS ROM with a preflashed version of the older, working bios. Again, im curious as to why you were flashing the bios in the first place.

It used to work, but the BIOS has been fixed to detect your CPU properly and it now knows that it is a 125W version. I already told you how to fix it. Install a 95W or less compatible CPU and flash back the old BIOS.

If you didn't save the previous version to a file, then you'll have to contact Biostar. I wouldn't recommend loading a BIOS file that you got from an unknown site as it could render your system useless.
