    Makes no sense for the updater to update the 2 BIOS chips, it will negate the reason
    why we got 2 BIOS.
    Here it does not update the 2.

    it depends whether it updated back up bios on reboot or not,or whether it flashed both main and back up at the time of flashing,its only what ive read from more experienced members

    p.s what did you flash with?? hope it wasnt @bios

    Good suggestion, didn't work for me...same results.

    I used qflash to update.......I see they have now removed the problem bios from here as other people have had the same problem..... Can I rma this board?

    did you pm lsdmeasap? you might get things going if you short the bios chip,lsdme knows how to do this and what pins to cross,you can fix without rma so i would speak to him first,if you cant get it going then yes rma should be fine if you explain what happened

    No I didn't pm LSDMEASAP as I did read about others who also used this technique to recover the board and also how they electrocuted themselves, not keen on trying that method and would prefer to rma if i can....

    If the backup chip was flashed you would know it as it tells you when this is happening, and that only happens with certain BIOS updates so that Qflash can be updated. Or if you do it manually.

    Electrocuted? I've never heard of ANYONE being electrocuted, if it were to happen I doubt it would harm you thought as I'm sure only a tiny amount of voltage is used in the BIOS chips.

    If you want the info on how to fix this via shorting let me know and I'll send you a PM, it's easy and fixes it fast. You won't be electrocuted because you will use electric tape on whatever you use to short anyway, I've done it tons of times as have many members to save themselves from a RMA.

    You have a 3 year warranty, and RMA takes 2 weeks sometimes 3, so if you do not want to attempt that it's fine and you can RMA no problem.

    Can you boot at all? If you can boot, can you boot to DOS via a CD or bootable USB? If so you can easily fix this via flashing.

    What brought the backup chip being updated into question here anyway?

    Have you tried starting the machine with only one stick of memory? How about quickly flipping the power on/off while you try to power it on, sometimes doing this several times in a row will cause it to recover via backup.

    What screen are you seeing when it stops before rebooting?

    theres some confusion whether the second bios chip gets flashed the same time as the main bios if you flash with the newer bios's? and why hasnt the backup bios kicked in to recover things? you wont get electrocuted from 12v anyway and always isolate yourself beforehand by using gloves or plastic handled tools

    It depends on the BIOS, the user would know if it happened as they would see the "Recovering/Flashing Backup BIOS screen"

    Backup BIOS doesn't always work, or sometimes needs some persuasion :)

    I'm fairly sure it's way less than 12V that goes into those chips, probably 1V or less
