Any chance of booting up my PRIME X370-PRO BIOS ever again?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Spent the better part of last week building a PC and had it working great. Loaded Windows 10 and done a couple different benchmark tests. The 2133MHz (I believe) RAM speed was bugging me (since I purchased 3000) so decided to try and overclock for the first time in my life. I read up on a few forums and finally changed the Asus Bios to XMP and selected 2666, as I had read online that the motherboard was working well when overclocking to that amount. After changing this.. I got nothing now. It won't even boot to the BIOS.

The BIOS came shipped with 0515 and I had successfully upgraded it to PRIME X370-PRO BIOS 0604 (came out 4/10) and it was working fine before trying this.

The only sliver of hope I have at this point is that I accidentally set 2700 (or something around there) the first time and the same thing happened... I powered off/powered on 3X and finally got a screen that said something about 'overclocking failed! run setup to return to configuration' which took me back in to where I could select again. I started to set back to the original at that point and saw that it was one step higher than what I had intended.. so "wrongly" deduced that this must have been the reason for not being able boot up. I set it to the 2666, got the below prompt, saved... and now, it's just mobo lights and fans but no video. I've rebooted about 50X with this newest setting (unplugging/powering on and off/ clicking F2/ holding DEL key down/etc) and I got nothing.

Am I totally SOL here or do I have any options at this point? Is it possible to return to previous BIOS settings in any way or anything else at all? Thanks very much.


Primary parts of my system:
CPU
AMD RYZEN 7 1800X 3.6GHz 8-Core

CPU COOLER
Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM

MOTHERBOARD
Asus PRIME X370-PRO ATX AM4

MEMORY
Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3000

POWER SUPPLY
Corsair 860W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX

Pull the mobo battery for 5 min to clear cmos to factory defaults

Agreed with the above, or use the CMOS jumper to clear it if you're familiar with doing that. It would be in your motherboard manual.

I would try unplugging the power cord, remove the battery on the m/b and let it set for 15 to 30 minutes to drain all voltages. Then I would put the battery back in and I would short the cmos jumper for a few seconds (just for kicks) and then plug the power cord in and give it a try,,,,,,Good Luck my friend!

Thank you all. I at least have hope again. I'll give this a try tomorrow morning and let you know. Much appreciated!

That did the trick. Whew! Back to normal. Kind of a bummer I have this RAM and can't go past the default values... but maybe in a future BIOS update. Just nice to be running again. Thanks a ton for the help!
