xfx 790i ultra won't boot after bios update :(

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi, i have an xfx 790i ultra mobo which was running great until i updated to the latest P09 bios from the xfx website.
i downloaded the disc image and burnt it as an image then booted from disc as instructed,it went throgh the update then when it tried to reboot it goes through the codes on the display on the mobo then stops at 29
all the fans are spinning and l.e.d's are on but no boot, not even post!
i know all my other hardware is ok as ive tested it on another mobo i have.
ive checked all connections,cleared cmos,removed battery for a few hours,made sure bios chip is seated properly,even reseated my cpu with new paste.
i cant find anyone else who has had this problem so i thought id ask as im totally stuck

ive thought of buying a new bios chip off ebay but will that even fix it?

any help would be great guys

thanks in advance

ish.

Just buy a new BIOS chip. XFX mobo RMA SUCKSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! If the new chip doesn't work, you can probably kiss your investment goodbye you can TRY working with XFX "support".

FIXED! Changed cpu and it booted :-) P09 bios must not support the old pen d 925's as it still works in my old pc. Weird!
