I built my computer a a few weeks ago. First Mobo broke within the first 3 weeks. Bought a new motherboard.... Worked fine for ten minutes, went to update BIOS and 80% way in, windows comes to a slow halt and crashes. Rebooted it even with the Asus disk and it longer does anything. Lights and fans are on, but nothing more. What do I do now?
EVGA Nvidia GTX670
Asus P8Z77-V Motherboard
Samsung 830 Series SSD
Windows 7 Pro
Have you tried using BIOS Flashback. It's mentioned in the manual Section 1-6. Not sure if it can fix a botched update, though. Just download the latest BIOS version, put in on a USB drive, plug it into a USB port and follow the rest of the directions in the manual. Might be worth a try.
Edit: I removed the renaming part, it might have been for a different utility, so never mind that.
