Everything was working fine
P8P67 PRO, i7-2600K, 2x4GB G.skill 1600 RAM (F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL)
EVGA Geforce GTX460SE video card
Win 7 64-bit
I put the system together, managed to install windows 7, it booted, was working fine, except for having to boot twice through ASUS bios splash screen.
Then I tried to install drivers for video card from the install CD.
Now I cannot boot - I get hung up on BIOS splash screen - "press DEL to enter EFI BIOS setting". I have no idea which BIOS revision I am running- can't get that far.
Have tried resetting CMOS, taking out CMOS battery, unplugging mouse and keyboard, taking out one stick of RAM.
Nothing works. Systems hangs before entering BIOS. I just heard it chirp and then reboot, after it had been on for 10 minutes or so.
What to do? I swapped out the video card for another known good one - same problem.
Am I going to be forced to return the board to the vendor?
I liked the "overclocking for dummies feature" - can anyone recommend aboard that has a similar feature in case I do return this?
