If it doesn't have a dual bios then it might be bricked and you would need to rma it. :/

As said above, if it isn't dual BIOS then you may have bricked it. RMA means you contact the manufacturer and tell them what happened, you send it in and they repair it/replace it.

However, I'm not sure what they're going to do for a bricked mobo. But for future reference... NEVER! update your BIOS unless you're having an issue that can ONLY be solved with a BIOS update.

First of all, when you update a BIOS, you NEVER use a saved profile from a previous BIOS. That's caused all sorts of issues, including cases where the CPU would get like 1.78v improperly. But it sounds like you never even made it that far.

Look in the instruction book for the clear CMOS/RTC jumper and try clearing it with the instructions provided. There's usually a jumper on the 3 pin block, and you clear it by turning off the PC, unplugging PSU, trying to turn on the PC with the PSU unplugged (this clears standby voltage), wait 60 seconds, then open the case, then moving the clear cmos jumper from positons 1-2 to 2-3, wait 30 seconds while keeping the pins shorted, then move it back, then replug and power on.

If the clear cmos jumper only has two pins (and no jumper), you can use a HDD jumper or a flathead screwdriver to short the pins.

If you can't understand my instructions, then I can't help further. Hope this works. If it doesn't, RMA the board.
