Bios update now won't boot up need help

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Ok sorry for being a noob but I tried to update my bios as I got a new gpu which wouldn't work so I updated the bios. Now the pc won't boot just goes through it's process then restarts over and over.

I have the Gateway FX 6860 ur-21p.
On the crucial site it said it had a intel h67 chipset. I can't find the original bios version or don't know how to make a recovery cd, or USB.

Any help would be appreciated.

I tired resetting the cmos jumper and battery. No luck.

Unplug the PSU from the wall outlet , pull the bios battery, change the CTRL jumper, and t. Wait 30 seconds then put it all back together.

It will be covered in your owners manual, under bios resetting.

Will clearing CMOS really help with a flashed BIOS anyway ? Surely it'll just put it back at it's default flashed staged, no ?

OP you should post more info (and do it the right way, your post now is a bit of a mess), including your motherboard name. Also you should change the topic name to what your problem is, "Please help me" is not really good.

Sorry about that I'm just tired and really lost here.

Here is the pc that I have.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113218

I know I messed up and didn't backup the bios before updating and dont even know if I got the right update. I went to gateway and sound my pc and downloaded the bios update, should I have went to intel to get the update instead?

And now the startup screen says Acer which it didn't before. But it looks like it wants to boot but then gets so far and just restarts.

The only jumpers I see on the MB are flash override, clr cmos, and rom recovery. I unplugged the power supply, took out the battery and switched the jumpers to clr cmos. Still restarts over and over.

I tried to find the bio file from intel but couldn't to at least put on a cd to try and do the recovery process. If I'm out of luck can someone point me in the right direction for a new MB.

Thanks again

Yes, when the flashed BIOS is not working then you can't just "reset" the bios to make it work again. Actually it wont change anything since the BIOS he flashed can not be accessed in the first place. You can also not flash back to the old version (tried that myself redface.gif)
The only way of getting that thing back up and running is to replace the BIOS chip or reflashing the chip to the correct version in another computer. (As long as it's not soldered to the mobo)

I'm pretty certain that these are your only options, but I'm still going to ask you to answer the below questions.

  • What motherboard are you using?
  • How have you flashed your BIOS?
  • What BIOS version did you flash from and to?

EDIT: Nvmnd, just got ninjad

I'm curious about that ROM recovery, ain't that what you are looking for ?

I have no idea. I tried searching it and didn't find anything about it.

The intel site has a recovery bios instructions which say download the bio file and either put it on a non bootable cd or USB. Change the bios configuration jumper which say just remove the jumper altogether. Hook up the USB or put in the cd and start the pc then it will update then shut off and replace the jumper. But there isn't a configuration jumper unless that's what the rom recovery is.

If it says ASUS on the start screen are you able to enter the BIOS? Normally when a flash goes wrong you shouldn't be seeing anything on your screen...not?

EDIT: Sorry I was for some reason thinking the BIOS was flashed incorrectly and therefore nothing would be working...

Yes I can get into the bios, the boot option and even safe mode. Boot is right and I tried f9 for default setting then save and exit, and changed the date and time.

I was thinking the same.

If you can boot your pc that far you should be able to flash it back with no problems, but I don't get what is your issue, you can't get into Windows, is that it ?
