    Default help !!! new ds3l won't boot after bios update !!!!

    damn it !!! just got my new computer with DS3L and E8400
    i guess i was to tired when flashed last night so maby flashed to earlier ver that what it was or dif REVISION (but same model - p35 DS3L)
    now nothing works after restart !!!
    first time the comp did a restart loop every 3 seq ...
    then i took the buttery off ...nothing ....
    tried the jumper ...
    now the comp just starts all fans moving but can't do anything !! i don't get a signal with the monitor - nothing !!!
    tried removing all hardware from the board...same - nothing ...tried remove memory to 1 slot - nothing
    what else to do !!?? new computer !!! :(

    is there any other way i can get a signal with the monitor or the DS3L is dead ?
    what about getting a PCI Graphic card and connect it to a PCI slot instead of my PCI-E one ? will it help ?

    It is not your graphics card so ya dont need to worry about that. Sounds like you flashed to incorrect revision # or a older BIOS that does not support E8400

    All you can do it try this with a floppy Post #6 >>

    If no luck or you do not have a floppy you will need to RMA the board. By they way not sure if you used @BIOS or not, but when you get your board fixed, or a new board DO NOT USE @BIOS

    No, Please FULLY READ the link posted in post # 6 I linked. It is how to BLIND flash

    If you have a floppy, then go read what is posted. It will tell you how to make a blind flash disk that will automatically run with no interaction from you

    Ohh yeah, I guess you would have needed A to be first in the boot order, which it should always be set to if you do have a floppy for this and various other things

    If you need the RMA page let me know and I will post it for you
