    Black screen after BIOS update DG45FC motherboard

      I first updated the bios with the 0097 version from .exe file in windows.

      It rebooted fine and ran the flash utility. After that there were a blank screen. I turned the computer off.


      Now it goes blank after BIOS is loaded. I tried with the recovery process but the screen goes blank even there.

      Also tried with flash from CD with version 0097 again and it goes blank after it is finished...


      Can I restore somehow?

          Hi there,

          1. Remove the memory
              Does the board issue any beeps?


          2. Do a CMOS clear first.
              Put back the memory and now switch the bios jumper into Configuration Mode.
              Does the system boot into the bios?


          3. Then try a bios recovery using a formatted USB media.


          Instructions for Recovery BIOS Updates

          In the unlikely event that a BIOS update is interrupted, it is possible the BIOS may be left in an unusable state. The recovery process requires the chassis to be opened to remove the onboard BIOS Configuration Jumper.

          1. Copy the latest recovery file (version 97) (*.bio) to a formatted usb disk/CD ROM.
          2. Place the usb disk in the target system.
          3. Shut down the system and unplug AC power.
          4. Open the chassis and remove the BIOS Configuration Jumper. See the Technical Product
          Specification for details including the location of this jumper.
          5. Power the system on.
          6. Wait 2-5 minutes for the update to complete. When the usb drive LED is lit, the system

          is copying the recovery code into the FLASH device.
          7. System will either turn off when the recovery process is completed or it will prompt

          you to turn off the system.
          8. Remove usb disk
          9. Replace the BIOS Configuration Jumper.
          10. Restart system.
