Comp won't load/start after BIOS update

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just updated my BIOS to the newest driver and now it won't even load, nor get to the BIOS display. It turns on but does not display anything. I used a DVD, loaded defaults, update bios, shutdown completely, resetted CMOS, and then started the comp.

It was posting 7F. Checked the manual and it says "Check POST error and display them and ask for user intervention"

2b
When the system powers on and the Debug LED shows the usual POST code sequence but hangs on 2b or you get a beep code as soon as the sequence reaches 2b, then the Mainboard cant detect your Videocard properly. Note that the POST code sequence might not halt at 2b but continue, so the final POST Code it displays could be FF, 00 or 7F which means the Maiboard booted, entered BIOS, or OC recovery kicked in and is waiting for Input to enter BIOS. Since the Videocard couldnt be detected properly you will only see a black Monitor and either 2b, FF, 00 or 7F. Check if there is something wrong with the Videocard, the PCIE slot or BUS, the Monitor or monitor cable. Turn the Monitor on and off, switch the Monitor cable from one D-SUB or DVI plug to the other in case your Videocard has two. If this doesnt help then reboot and load the optimized defaults. If that doesnt help either try another Videocard if possible, or try the Videocard in another system to make sure its working properly. Try another monitor or try the Monitor on another System.

7F
When the system detects that a critical error happened during the last boot attempt or several boot attempts failed, so OC recovery kicked in. There should be a message displayed on the Display informing you that OC revocery kicked in and that its waiting for your input to enter BIOS. If you cant see this message cause your Display stays black, please check the description for POST Code 2b.

Hope this helps, not sure if you are seeing the screen mentioned or a different one?

No problem! Glad I could help, I have never used EVGA but I knew the error codes were universal.

So did you get it going yet?

Yup, everything is working perfectly now, but the BIOS update doesn't show up in CPU-Z as the new one. It probably never updated..

Nice to hear!

Ya, it's likely the update failed. I'd say try it again, possibly using a different method or a different BIOS file
