    Default Motherboard problems after BIOS update DG965WH

    Greetings, this post is about my computers failure power up after a bios update. Me and my brother who at one time built computers for a living couldn't figure out how to solve the problem and i was thinking that you might. I have an intel DG965WH motherboard that has been used by only myself and seems to be totally dead. i gave up 6 months ago trying to fix it but, as recent events unfolded i need the board for a friend. All of the other parts in the computer operate fine, since they all work on my new motherboard. In attempt to find what the problem is i have pulled out the battery for a long period of time, ran the system with two different types of processors and power supplies, multipul sticks of ram and pulled the discrete graphics. The board shows that their is power going to it but won't turn on. no fans spin, the moniter doesn't turn on, computer doesn't post, nothing. Any replies are greatly appreciated thx.

    Bad bios flash = dead bios chip. If the bios chip is removeable, it could be replaced, otherwise the board is a goner.

    Did you check to see if you can remove the chip? Here is a page about this, so you can see if you have this type of BIOS chip >>>

    Here is a thread with some options on trying to recover it >>>

    There is a specific BIOS listed for use in trying to do this, so read carefully
