Asus Maximus Formula VII - Weird BIOS issue!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just flashed my BIOS to the latest one (2012) and now I have this weird problem where my computer will boot into Windows and work fine but I can't get into the BIOS! It doesn't show that starting screen before the windows logo, and when I press the Delete key, the screen just stays black Boot Device LED lights up red.

When I don't press any keys, the diagnostic screen on the motherboard hangs for a few seconds on A2 then AE then finally A0.

Anyone know what might be going on? Before I flashed the Bios, everything was going fine and just wanted to do routine updates.

First clear the CMOS. Unplug and pull out the battery for at least 30 minutes.



Another possibility is that there is a device that is causing problems. Check the hard drives, RAM, etc. Sometimes something is loose. Also reseat the CPU and check for bent pins. You may want to go ahead and reseat all components. Also check to see if there is anything shorting out the motherboard (screws loose, etc).

Check the manual for the beep codes but, from the manual:

The A0 codes mean though that everything seems to be ok - also check loose cables as well. I think that this may most likely be something loose.

Finally:
Can you downgrade to the old BIOS or reflash? It is possible that it did not reflash properly. Use the backup BIOS if needed.
