You may need to enable the 'ezflash' feature in the BIOS... Refer to your board's manual for specifics.

You may have bricked you MOBO. If have your original ASUS CD/DVD see if it has a '<file name>.ROM' file you can either boot off the CD-ROM or use the Flash Drive procedure for CrashFree BIOS 3.

Good Luck! :)

You may try to press ALT+F2 to access EZ Flash shortly after pressing the power button even though nothing is displayed yet.

If you had anything showing-up on the screen prior to your attempt to flash your BIOS and now you don't it's clear that your BIOS is corrupt.

The ONLY way that I know to salvage a corrupted BIOS on ASUS is the 'ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3' method per the ASUS video I linked.

Therefore, if your screen is 100% blank and it's not not going through the CD-ROM... & Checking for USB... then it's bricked a/k/a shot, bad, expensive paper weight, etc.

If your MOBO is under warranty then contact ASUS for a new/replacement MOBO, or if it's less then 30 days old attempt an RMA {return} with the place of purchase :( 

Q - What happened during the process when you were flashing the BIOS?
