|Yes I checked it every time it said F2 to enter setup, to see if there were any changes. It was always set to boot from pci-ex, time and date always correct, boot order correct, always recognized dvd and sata drive, etc. I have even removed the card and tried to reset bios so it would boot via onboard vga but nothing. It won't even beep removing memory. |
There has been no attempt to flash it at any time. Only thing that currently happens is you press the power button and fan's start spinning, cd rom makes a disc checking sound and light on it flickers, power light is on, screen goes from black to grey, Nothing else, no beeps etc.
As of nowI think the only options I can think of is replace the bios chip @ $18 or buy another motherboard like it for around $34.
