Good Morning Folks.

First time poster, long time geeker, not so long techie.

I have an issue with my PC. Let me first start of with what i did and why i did it.

I have built a PC a bit back ago using a ASUS Striker Extreme. Last Thursday i tried to use my SD card reader as well as my USB adapter to try and pull pictures from my SDHC 32gb sandisk extreme U1 card and my computer did not reconize either and so doing a little research I read that i possibly have to update my Bios in order for it (PC) to reconize it. Personally I figured it was windows 7 that would have been able to reconize it but i was wrong. So i went to ASUS websight and i pulled down the latest Bios version (v.2002) and rebooted my PC to Bios and used the flash v2 to flash on the new bios. So everything looked like it was doing the right process. It deleted the v.1004 and installed the v.2002. When it was in the reboot process it did not reboot, it totally shut off the PC. Now when i go to turn it on i get everything like fans and HD's and DVD roms that turn on but nothing is on after that.
After trying to clear the cmos and even pulling everything out of the mobo i still dont have any sucsess. I have even grounded the terminals on the battery and nothing. the nice conveiniant thing about this mobo is it has its own clear cmos button instead of a jumper. After doing all that i broke down and bought a new bios chip assuming that i corrupted the other one and i still am haveing no luck with anything. I noticed that even the usb ports for like the keyboard and mouse dont even work so it is not even producing power to those. Please, any advise would be appreciated. :killcomp:

Some motherboards have a backup BIOS, I dont suppose this is one of them? if so, it may be possible to enable the backup bios, but Im thinking that since replacing the chip didnt do any good that the motherboard is bricked.

Hi
I tend to agree with the_patriot11 with one Caveat.

Where did the replacement BIOS chip come from? ASUS? Are you sure it is the right one?

Some Bios have a method to recover from a bad flash.

Take a look at this post. http://www.overclock.net/t/395007/striker-extreme-bios-recovery Post # 3
try that with the old BIOS chip.

Good Luck
Roger
