Ok, the only thing you cna try is to completle unplug the power then remov ethe CMOS battery for at least 20 minutes, then put teh battery back in and straight away on first boot try the BIOS update recovery with the just .BIOS file try both wioth a cd and a usb stick if it dosnet work you will need to replace it.
i will try this and update.
it's so frustrating, i did every thing by the book, and the safe mechanism doesn't work...
can the 'un post' thing get any connection to the fact that the board include an on-board graphic?
same problem happened to me, you had to remove the jumber of bios recovery from 1-2 and install it in 2-3 in order to go into configuration mode the load optimized default after that save and exit the it may start correctly after returning the jumber in 1-2 position.
I had another problem.
the cpu after making update same like you and has the same problem... it refuse to restart after issuing the command of restart from inside windows. however.. it will shut normally.
also restart process is not complete (means that it pehaves as if it will restart then it stops at the middle (power led is on, fan is on) and power switch is not responding and I had to unplug the power to issue booting.
what is the problem now. ?
i try it all - the board doesn't want to start...
i can't understend why, i did all by thr book.
i think i will buy a new one - and not an Intel one...
Hi, sorry it didnt work.
The only thing you have left is to contact INtel support then for warranty
Just wanted to know, did you remove the hard disk while doing the recovery? Once you remove the BIOS jumper, the firmware searches for the .BIO file.Make sure you remove the hard disk. I would also recommend you to remove the ram and check whether it gives beeps and if possible try with a different ram....
Yes, i removed the hard drive, tried SATA OOD, PATA OOD, USB, all together - didn't worked...
it doesn't bip with no RAM - it's looks like simpale no post. the board is just dead...
i don't know if intel will replace it to me.
Are you able to get into the Setup? If you are, have you tried setting your BIOS to factory default?
I can't go into the setup.
the screen is just black...
Only two ways to continue from here, replace motherboard or order replacement CMOS chip. Most motherboard manufacturers are not going to sell a replacement chip, so, you're probably going to need to RMA the board. Note, some board manufacturers will not fully cover a replacement if you tell them you had an overclock on your hardware when you flashed your BIOS, so if you did, don't mention that part. Good luck.

I had the same problem. I solved the problem like this: Power off your PC. Move the BIOS jumper to 2-3. Power on your PC and you will enter the bios. Set up the BIOS to its default settings. Save and exit. Turn off power. Then you need to restore the BIOS jumper on position 1-2. Power on and PC should be boot.
