Many thanks for the info. Will try and get hold of one and have a go.

Is there any way to get my z68 back up and running after a bad bios scenario?

When the board died I think I got up to 3305 but wasn't able to recover the machine so brought a Maximus V GENE as I couldn't get any further.

I was hoping to be able to recover the board and build a new machine from it.

Essentially it doesn't even post (black screen) and as it doesn't have a USB BIOS Flashback like on the Maximus V I couldn't essentially wipe it and start again which is what i'm after doing now. Probably a stab in the dark though.


Cheers Mark

There is a removable bios chip on the board and while a long shot maybe it just needs to be reinserted or something. Its located by the red sata connector. See if that chip is n all the way but like I mentioned its a long shot, you will most likely need to try an RMA.

There's a way to use the disc that comes with the motherboard to fix a borked BIOS. You'll have to research it. Read a little bit about it in Post 5501 in this thread. I don't know if that will work for you though. Maybe get a replacement BIOS chip off eBay?

 yep ...

 

ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 allows users to restore corrupted BIOS data from a USB flash disk containing the BIOS file.

This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip.

 

- Remove any discreate GPU, use the onboard Video output.

- Remove the CPU from the socket and clear CMOS (must do with the CPU out)

- Place a single memory module in the slot furthest from the CPU

- Remove all USB devices (Mouse, Drives, etc.) apart from the keyboard 
- Try Running CrashFree BIOS Utility as outlined above

Hmmm dunno about that headscratch.gif don't think Asus would like or allow that ? but ?

 

IF I were you, email one of the ASUS Customer Service Rep guys, I list many of them on the FRONT PAGE, under the HELP & ASSISTANCE section, plus there's another new Asus Rep guy here on OCN, Thomas I think is his name ? ... and ask if they could ship you out another Support DVD. I think they HAVE done this before for someone in our group, be ready to provide them your MoBo's Serial # for proof.

 

Some of the ASUS Reps here on OCN ;
