Hi everyone, i have a problem where i put together a new computer and updated the bios with USB flashdrive(it was successful, blue light blinked and all) ........but when i push power button to start the computer, the red device led on the motherboard stays ON and hence computer wont post. I changed the hard drive  and had to reset the cmos jumper to get the computer to start up again(without posting). Since I reset the cmos jumper settings to bios default, do I need to redo the usb flashdrive bios update again?



        mobo:   Sabertooth X79

           cpu:  Intel 4820k

 hard drive: WD 500GB Caviar Black

           psu: Corsair 850w pro series

my guess is, since it wont boot the flash update failed. You can try putting the jumper back to where it was and try it, but I suspect you will have to re-flash the BIOS to get it to work right.
