    Default GA-MA770-DS3 flash gone bad

    I did flash my motherboard to version F4 with @Bios, then the screen whent black and the keyboard froze. I left it alone for 10 minutes then I rebooted the machine. It is now totally useless, it does not boot, I have taken out the battery, shorted the CMOS, pressed END when rebooting but no luck.

    What can I do? buy a new motherboard?

    @Bios is a Windows flash

    Ohhh yeah I guess I didnt notice you said that.

    Yes, it sounds as if something went very wrong during your windows flash, can you even load Qflash now? END key at boot.

    Hmm no bios error message? Sounds like you maybe able to flash it possibly with a floppy still, but you would have to know how to do it since you would be doing it blind.

    RMA may be your only option

    If I put the BIOS file on a floppy and boot the computer, does it automaticly flash the BIOS with the file on the floppy if the BIOS is corupt?

    No, I dont think so. What I meant was you would be TRYING, so you would have had to known which buttons to push to get to, browse to the disk and then how many times to push what to start the flash.

    You can always try though, but I think without being able to see to select the floppy you wouldnt ever find it. If it was in fact letting you do this all blindly which some computers will do

    IF your system can not boot any more.....RMA IT.

    IF your system can boot try update it in your BIOS BY usb flash drive
