    Default GA-M57SLISLI-S4 BIOS Bad Flash

    I was trying to flash with the newest nonbeta BIOS and used @BIOS and now I've learned my lesson. Now I no longer get video and the keyboard doesn't appear to work (both a PS2 and USB keyboard do not get numlock/capslock lights). I've cleared the CMOS and tried putting an older bios on a cd. I've tried a SATA and USB cdrom with no luck. I also put it on a msdos formatted floppy and attached it via USB. I currently don't have a cable to attach it internally. This is (as far as I can tell) a single BIOS motherboard which only makes it worse. I've searched all over the net and not found much, is there anything else anyone knows to try?

    Yes, this is a single BIOS board so you may have to RMA.

    What you should try, that you may or may not have yet, is putting in the motherboard driver CD into a CD Drive (IDE or SATA, then both if possible) and connect it only to the first SATA port (Or master if IDE).

    Then boot and see if it will recover the BIOS from CD. Floppy via USB will not work at all, but if you can find a real floppy drive you may be able to get it to auto recover that way, or you may get a blind flash to work.

    If you need RMA info let me know, you have 3 years from the date of purchase to RMA.
