Hi I recently bought a computer it arrived a few days ago and sicne then it has sufferd a fatal error after loosing all video output from the Base unit to the monitor I updated my graphic drivers beleiving that this may be the cuase of the problem after doing this I tested a game while loading I lost all video and the sound froze as well I was forced to restart my computer while in this state. When I attempted to restart it I had no video output at all and there was no BIOS check and no boot sound this leaves me to beleive that there is now a problem there or with the motherboard itself I have a decent understanding of computer hardware and thus far cannot see any damaged componants can some one please help me.

There is also a constant supply of power to the board so this is not a problem.

Remove the motherboard battery with the system off for about one minute, then reinstall. This will reset the bios, and may restore your video. If windows loads, uninstall the video driver in the control panel under "programs and features". When everything is working again, I wouldn't change anything or flash the bios. I usually have the best luck with the original video driver that comes with the cd.

If you've tried it all, then you're done. You can request an rma from asus or the builder of your system, whichever you prefer.
