i was doing a bios update, with the es flash utility via bios. and all seems well and then they asked for a reset. wheni clicked ok it hung for some time ... then i did a manual reset via power button ... since it seem to have hung already ... and i do not get any bios screen anymore (nothing on LCD at all) ... how can i recover from this?
Update: it might be my mistake of flashing a wrong BIOS ... might be ... I think my BIOS is H67M but I downloaded the H67M-PRO (so PRO) version BIOS. Shouldn't it tell me the MB model is wrong tho? Either way, is it possible to recover?
There is CMOS Jumper :
1.) Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.) Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 ( default ) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3.) Plug in the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.) Hold down the < Del > key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.
I already tried, that can try it again later... am curious tho ... if the computer has no power, does moving jumper cap do anything? Btw, before or after I tried that clear CMOS jumper thingy, I see nothing on my LCD when I start my computer. Fans are spinning tho (HDD too I think, theres some sound)
Do I also need to do
There is a CMOS switch on the back I/O of the motherboard.
1.) Press down the “clr CMOS” switch on the back I/O.
2.) Hold down the < Del > key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.
By back IO, I think it means the one with all the USB ports etc? Or must I remove the whole motherboard to access its back?
Btw, just read some articles, and CMOS clear seem to be for clearing settings, I think what I seem to need might be to revert the BIOS? Afterall this only happened after I tried flashing BIOS?
