Even with a bad flash, the board can still be saved, the BIOS chip can be flashed with an external programming device (it's quite cheap and there are decent guides on how to do that). The problem is, you would need to find the E7A36AMS.I00 BIOS file again for flashing.

So first let's see what else we can achieve. I would first try a Clear CMOS (short the JBAT1 pins with a screwdriver with the PC off). Then i would remove all the components one by one to see how the board behaves. For example if you remove all RAM, the EZ Debug LED "RAM" should be on.

Thank you, i appreciate it but my bios version is E7a36ams.I00 it seems cant update because of the i00, is there some other way fo update it?
Sorry I some how linked the wong link :bonk: :bonk: :bonk: :bonk: :bonk: :bonk:


But I also see you foud it with a bit of help


Try a Cmos reset short erh Jbat jumpers for 15 seconds with PSU powered off. Try it a few times if you need to I have had to spam the Cmos reset several times in the past to get a Board to post after a Bios update. And remove a RAM mouel as well just use a single stick in slot two.

Also try a previous older bios to flash with

You may have a problem with the UEFI Secure boot enable set as defult so a older bios version will get arround that

If you erase the BIOS chip contents, you're gonna have to program it again for it to have a chance to work.
As i said, finding the E7A36AMS.I00 BIOS file again will probably prove difficult. You can try other versions of the official BIOS first.
