Asus P8P67 Pro Rev3 - Flashed BIOS, black screen

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so in trying to fix an issue with a graphics card I went ahead and tried to upgrade my BIOS since I don't remember having ever done it. I downloaded the file and placed it on the C drive. Booted in to the BIOS went to the EZFlash Utility and selected the file. It said that everything was successful and that it would reboot. Well it did and now it just sits at a black screen with the red cpu light on. I read that there is the crashfree bios feature but placing the motherboard support CD in the drive does nothing at all. Is there some way to jump start this? Another avenue I should consider to fix this? I don't think the CPU is bad, I mean the computer was running just fine, flashed the BIOS, now this. Any ideas on what I could do? Thanks in advance for any help or light you may be able to shed on this.

Hi,

Well, there's not much you can do at this point.

Try clearing the CMOS if you have not already. If that does not help, you'll have to buy a replacement BIOS chip - http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Bios-Chip-Asus-P8P67-PRO-REV-3-0-/170917314837?pt=US_Motherboard_Components&hash=item27cb774115

For future reference, never attempt to flash the BIOS with EZ-Flash by putting the .ROM on the root of your c:\

Also ensure you load optimized defaults before flashing the BIOS in the future.

Put it on a flash drive or something.

Regards,

Patrick

Well lesson learned then I suppose. Thank you for your help. I guess the question now is do I spend the 16 and wait patiently, or do what any normal person would do and use this as an excuse to jump to the 1150 socket wink.gif
