 Yesterday my computer just shut down like power loss. (X299 dark)
A little of this and that determined issue is the computer. Just wouldn't boot, was even stubborn about powering on. I reset bios (nothing was overclocked) with no change. Switched to a different bios position, (the middle one) boots up fine every time. Only the middle bios position works. A bad bios chip?

    A bad bios chip?




    Maybe.

    Get BIOS 1.28 which is the latest as of now..Then boot from the middle BIOS..Then move the BIOS Selector Switch to another position..Then run the flash routine..Use either the Windows or the BIOS (preferrably) installation methods as described on the download page..Don't flash the working/middle BIOS..Also take note of the BIOS version of the working one..Whatever switch position it's in prior to running the flash is the one that will get flashed.
     
    Roll from there..If no joy, there's more to try like flashing the non-working BIOS switch positions the the BIOS version of the middle switch position in the same manner.

    Tried flashing nonworking positions no luck a little wary of flashing the only working position.

    It would seem to be the bios chip for the first position. I would be looking at anything that could have caused the issue and then after that I would be backing up data often just in case it’s an issue that spreads.

    I remember back in the day there was a way to flash bios from a startup with a bootable USB it saved my tail plenty of times. hers is a tutorial on how to make a bootable flash drive. when you done creating it stick in the bios you want to flash and tell your computer to boot from USB this should work

    If you flash BIOS 1 and 3 to the same version as BIOS 2 and 1 and 3 still don't work, then there's bigger issues at hand..May be the BIOS chip itself, or try reseating it..But yeah, don't mess with the working BIOS.

    Solved. Reseating the bios chip several times did not help. Cleaned bios chip with contact cleaner problem resolved, makes sense I suppose. Now boots from all bios chip positions.
    Thank you for all of your help.

    So this problem came back.
    In the end, I accidentally put the bios chip in backwards (had a dumbass attack) So now the board is useless, I broke it. Most likely expensive to repair.

    Ooops..Stuff happens.

    From the mobo manual: "This chip **IS DIRECTIONAL** and inserting the replacement backwards will cause immediate failure of the motherboard and BIOS chip, including the potential for fire or smoke from the socket."

    Time for a new mobo, I guess..Some good upgrades out there but kinda pricey these days.

    Yes, I know that. Hence the dumbass attack.
    Didn't want to admit to such ignorance. I know better.
