HELP!!!! M5a97 r2.0 FREEZE AFTER BIOS UPDATE with fx 8320 and 8 gb x1 corsair vengeance ddr3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought these motherboard with all my other components 15 days ago. Everything was working fine untill i decided to update my bios.Since i do overclocking,updated bios is important for me for stability.So, the board came with bios version 1903.I went to the asus support page and saw new bios 2006 for dis motherboard.
I downloaded the file in a usb and updated the bios from ASUS EZ Flash 2 Utility from within the bios.

It showed that the update was successful and system will restart.
But as soon as the system restarted it got stuck with American Megatrends nothing else was displayed no error nothing my keyboard got hanged so i was not able to get in the bios also,though my cpu fans where running.also my cpu started with a post 1 beep sound.
I called the support in india and they tried to trouble shoot it with cmos clearing with battery removal as well as jumper switch..but nothing same problem.
So, they told me to go to the service centre and drop my motherboard for either repair or replacement.
Today, i went and dropped my motherboad.
My only concern why did these problem occured after successful update of the bios.

I was also thinking about updating my bios. I have the same mobo, but the LE version. But after reading this, I think I will leave it alone!

Did you ever figure out what was wrong?
