Yikes.. wrong BIOS!

That BIOS was for the LANPARTY UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert and not for your LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D.

Here are a couple of options, from this source: http://www.pcguide.com/ts/x/comp/mbs...ashDead-c.html

1) Some newer PCs come with a boot block feature that enables them to recover from a corrupted BIOS situation. If the BIOS code is whacked, a tiny built-in program will look on the floppy drive for the appropriate files to reload the BIOS. You should contact the manufacturer for instructions.

2) You can usually purchase a replacement BIOS chip from the motherboard (not BIOS) manufacturer. Physically replacing the chip with another that has the right code will solve the problem.

If you have a removable bios you could always send it down to the biosman.

I wonder if a wrong BIOS Flash can create that much havoc. At this point, I recommend you contact DFI and explain what happened. These things can happen, and they should have some kind of solution.

Good luck

If they can't help, then I guess we'll have to do some more digging around

If it was OCed and you didn't set to defaults before the flash, that may have been the issue.
Check your CD for BIOS restoration, there may, as mentioned, be a method of recovery.

Hmm, nope no OCing, the ONLY adj. is the V. on the DRAM, 2.8 as recommended. Just for S&G's, I ordered a new BIOS chip, but the flash I did didn't mention any problems. I flashed it w/310 and it still had "issues". So I went to DFI-Street and THEY said flash it with nF4LD406.BIN. So I did. Now I say to my computer, cuz she don't want to play with me anymore. sniff, sniff.
