Did the BIOS update go smoothly? BIOS update is risky. It may damage the motherboard if not done properly. Looks like it may the case for you. Try resetting you BIOS and boot. Check your mobo manual for that.
1. Have you pulled the CMOS battery out. If not, pull it out, do the "clear cmos (usally envolves shorting two pins) then leave sit for 10 Min. While it is sitting, reseat the 20/24 Pin and the 4/8 Pin and reseat the video card and any power connectors on the video card.
2. Whith cpu, video card installed, one stick of RAM (Make sure it is in the recommended slot. Power up. If no video, watch (listen) to see if the computer is tring to boot off of the HDD, does the Floppy light flash (if installed). If no video and no indication of Disk activity, Most likely you are hosed (sorry). If you do have "activity, with no video, there is an outside chance you can recover, but need to email MB Manuf. for "How to recover, with no video." Basically it is to have a bootable device, ie DVD, thumb drive, floppy that is configured to auto run a bios flash.
If you have no "activity" indicating that your system can access a floopy, or usb port, or dvd rom. you olly option to recover from a "failed" bios update is to return it to the Manuf to replace the Bios ROM chip. Kind of wished they still used socketed CMOS Chips.
