When you do a bios upgrade the bios settings are often reset to default. So if, for example, you had added a LAN card and had the onboard one disabled the upgrade may have re-enabled the onboard. The same is true if you added a video card.

Anyway, you may want to go into bios setup and make sure all the settings are the way you want them to be.

Why did you update the BIOS in the 1st place? And which version did you update from? There have only been 3 versions released since the original & none of the "fixes" seem all that important except for maybe version 0601 - "Fix booting up will take long time with some VGA card". But unless you're experiencing that problem, there's really no need for the update.

As DAVEINCAPS stated, your BIOS probably reset to the defaults. Enter the BIOS setup & run thru each & every setting & correct as necessary. Make sure to save before you exit.

Are you sure you downloaded the correct BIOS? Often there are multiple versions of a MB and they each require different BIOS' for example, if the board comes in a version 1,2, & 3 and you have Version 1 but install a Version 3 BIOS which may have different internal components, some of them might not operate properly.

Try BIOS set up as recommended above first.

If you have to downgrade a BIOS, you download and install it just like you would an upgrade install. If the automatic or Windows BIOS utility fails on this, there may be a Flash Drive BIOS Flash utility that probably have more ability to install the downgrade BIOS.

As mentioned, ONLY update a BIOS if there is a significant reason for it such as either there is a problem you are experiencing and the update specifically says that is addresses your particular issue, or you are upgrading to hardware (CPU, Video Card, PCIe SSD drive, etc.) that only the new BIOS supports. THEN by all means proceed but with extreme caution after understanding all that can go wrong and all you can do to protect yourself from them (I strongly recommend using a UPS while doing it).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
