    Can you enter the BIOS with one stick of ram then or not? If you can, then you do not need to use the last resort method because you can easily flash your BIOS using Qflash to the latest BIOS and see if that helps.

    The last resort is for boards that will not enter the BIOS or Qflash in any way

    Did you ever Clear the CMOS using my method, if not please also do that then try to enter the BIOS with one stick of ram in slot one

    Your last post sounded like it was working, did I just misunderstand you?

    Have you tryed disconnecting all your HDD's and let it recover from the backup BIOS? Same thing happened to me two or three times on my old DS3L. For the first time I waited for a couple of hours but nothing happened. So I powered of the system, removed the SATA plugs from my HDD's and powered on the system. The backup BIOS went doing it's job and my board was like new in less than 30 seconds.
