    I've just updated my BIOS from 1004 to 1006 on Asus official homepage and now my computer won't work. What is happening is the monitor is just flashing green at me, I've swapped video cards and monitors and it’s the same effect on all. I suspect it’s the motherboard unfortunately, something to do with the flash. I hope not but please someone confirm this and let me know of any possible fixes from recovering BIOS failure?

    You could try clearing the cmos if you haven't already done so. When you updated the bios did it tell you it had succeeded.

    Yes I've just cleared my CMOS, the computer seemed to be functioning again. But after reconfiguring BIOS and powering down, the monitor is doing the blinking green again!!! This is really frustrating, could it be the battery is dying??

    /update, Well after clearing the CMOS a FEW times, its booted up about twice. Its on right now, and I'm going to try and reflash the BIOS, but to me it seems like the battery is dying?? But we'll see I guess. Randomly it still goes to the blinking.

    /update, after reflashing the computer is booting to blinking light on the monitor, the only way around it is to clear the CMOS EVERYTIME.....

    If it was the CMOS battery I think it just loads the bios defaults but you could try it. When http://www.nforcershq.com/ is back up have a look in the Asus part of their forum as they have a sticky for bios problems, bugs ect for each new bios for our board

    After reflashing its seemed to have cleared up, atleast so far.... But I guess we'll find out, something I assume, must have happened during the flash. Its the only thing I can think of.
