I recently bought a DZ48DB and a i7 2600k package deal, and the motherboard is dead now after a BIOS update. When assembling all the components together and booting up everything was running smoothly. I installed window 7 ultimate and booted everything up getting all the latest drivers avaliable for windoes it self. After all the installation was completed, I then prodeeded to instal the latest BIOS for the board from the intel website. The version of BIOS that came with the board was version 14. I searched on the download page and found that version 32 was the most up to date version and selected the .exe file which installs the BIOS from windows option. When ran the program everything was looking normal and the computer restarted it self and a page of information was posted, showing all the different files were being installed and completed. Upon completion of the installation it proceeds to restart the computer byself and thats when trouble came. When the computer restarted nothing was being posted on the monitor at all. I waited for a while to see if the computer is still doing some kind of installation or work that needs to be done but after 30 minutes of waiting I decided the BIOS installation was failed.
I then proceeded to try and do a BIOS recovery with every single method provided on the intel website through CD rom, through USB of 4 gig and a USB with 128 MB using the original BIOS 14 .BIO file with nothing else in the CD/USB drives with the jumpers removed. Upon removing the jumpers I disconected everything from the computer including the power cable. I've tried resetting the BIOS by removing the CMOS battery and retrying the BIOS recovery that way. Nothing works. Cruising through the web I came upon a person that had a simular thing that happened to him but he was able to get into the bios by putting the jumper into configure mode (2-3). http://communities.intel.com/message/136819#136819 is where I found it. Unfortunately that method did not work for me. I am running out of ideas to somehow get this motherboard working again. I've contacted the technical support from intel using the livechat option and they didn't really help me at all. Basically just asking me if I tried all the recovery methods that was provided by intel's website. They said they were going to transfer my problem to someone near my geo and I'm suppose to get a call from them but I haven't recieved anything. At this point what else can I do to get this computer working again? If the board is dead where do I go from here?
