2 boards dead now. no beeps no bios no boots. i went to run the auto tune for 2-4 hours and when it asked to reboot to apply default settings i clicked ok, it shut down windows and it was just hung. no video, fans on, no boot. i left it like that for an hour and finally power off. recovery bios procedure doesnt work, clear bios procedure doesnt work. different RAM tried, different video tried, different processor tried. it definitely is the mobo/bios thats hosed. does anyone have a fix for this outside of RMA again?
Based on the tests done, I'd suggest clearing the CMOS as outlined here:
Note: Make sure you leave the battery out for 20 min.
After this, attempt to boot up the system without any of the memory modules; if the system beeps, proceeed performing BIOS Recovery, anew:
Reminder: The .bio file for BIO version 5561 is found here.
