MS-7399 2.0 XFX Mobo issue.

Hello, I have a MS-7399 2.0 XFX motherboard and it is giving me some issues with upgrading my CPU... This is what I've done so far with it...

I upgraded from an E2200 2.2GHz dual core cpu to an E6600 3.06GHz dual core cpu. It worked perfect for about an hour, then I got a bsod... I did a BUNCH of research for quite a few hours... I found some information on similar motherboards... They were the same, except for the fact, Mine has a different heatsink on the board, it has a GREEN board, and it has 'XFX' printed between the ram slots and cpu slot...

2 of the motherboards that are similar...



With that said... After It BSODed I researched and read up that a lot of people flashed their BIOS to the updated version. So I went looking and found the bios for the P6NGM2-FI (Link above). I jumped the gun and flashed the v31 bios, when instead I should have flashed the v30 bios... Now when I turn my computer on, it runs, but my monitor doesn't recongnize it... I;ve tried my monitor -dvi and my tv -vga... Neither of them show a screen... Is there a way to fix this or is my mobo completely screwed?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Sorry, but the wrong bios file can kill a board. XFX is out of the board business, last time I checked. You'll need to try biosman for a fix or find a dead board like yours and remove the bios chip if you can. Some are soldered on, so replacing the chip is not possible.
