I don't see another thread for the AX370-Gaming 5 and more than a few mentions of the 5 here, so I'm assuming this is the right place to post - if it isn't please let me know.
I think we might be beyond help at this point, but I'll ask anyway. My father decided to upgrade the BIOS on his Gaming 5 this past week and in doing so bricked the board. He's using a Ryzen 7 1700 and probably shouldn't have tried to upgrade but we're past that point. Here's what he did:
Started on BIOS F20 -> ran EC FW update -> updated to F31 via Q-Flash.
According to him, F31 updated successfully, but upon rebooting the Debug LED reads 00 and the CPU LED is lit. Obviously can't get the board to POST. Backup BIOS gives the exact same error.
I'm guessing this board is headed for the recycling center at this point, but I figured I'd ask before I gave up entirely. Thanks in advance for your help!
