Did you have to perform a BIOS recovery to start the board again? Do you still have the exact error message you mentioned?
Yes I had to do a BIOS recovery
The first two times it would just report the opening info and then hang the third time every time you tried to restart it would go right to this BIOS screen with two options but without any way to make changes and there was only one tab on top of screen. thinking it would go back if I hit ESC but it would only ask to save or exit. I know I should have written down the screen but!
This only stated after I went to Windows 8.1
I have the latest BIOS and if I run the auto check from INTEL on drivers it is up to date but when I do the check manually there is a later dated chip set driver?
