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 ?

That's correct. What's the steps to flash it back, when I dont even know the original version lol.

I think we still don't know what motherboard you're using so what should we tell you ?
Just go to manufacturer website, look for the last BIOS for this motherboard, follow the instructions on how to flash it (since you've already done it once you should be good on that one) and... that should be it.

If it is worth trying I'm ok trying it but if it is easier just to replace the MB can someone maybe post some better MBs maybe from newegg, that will work for my PC.

Bro, if you just ****ed up your BIOS but can flash it back easily what is the point of getting another motherboard? It should be as easy to fix as it was to break, so at least try once before giving up, you should have all the infos you need in your motherboard manual.

I'd say try windows recovery first (if you still have the recovery cd)
And if that does not work and you already flashed to the latest BIOS you can flash back to the second latest BIOS from where you downloaded the latest BIOS.

I believe its a intel h67, would that be correct? Sorry for being dumb that's what got me here in the first place.

Trying right now. Thanks. Would I go to Gateway to get the bios update or Intel?

Like I said, if you're looking for BIOS file go to the motherboard manufacturer first. The Newegg link you posted earlier only mention the H67 (that is the motherboard chipset), the motherboard brand should be written everywhere on the manuals you got with your computer (and on the motherboard itself, AND on the spash screen when you boot...). Otherwise install CPU-Z (look for it on google) it will tell you everything you need.

It says Acer on the MB and I can't install anything as I can't get into windows. I'm writing this on my Ipad.I do some more research. Thanks

He wont be able to install CPU-Z as he can't get into windows.

If the Windwos repair does not do it go for the BIOS versions on Gateway (there's only two available) and flash the one you have not flashed yet, see if that will work with the new GPU...

Look for the model name on the mobo. Asus might have some different BIOS versions for that mobo that will work. I'd still however try to flash the other BIOS from Gateway (there's only two BIOS files available) first before going for Asus BIOS versions
