awalleyeguyA bad bios chip?
bob16314awalleyeguyA 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.
awalleyeguy 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?
awalleyeguySo this problem came back.In the end, I accidentally put the bios chip in backwards
bob16314 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.
