bios update woe

  BITS&BOBS 00:33 01 Oct 2004

Hi I earlier tried to update my asus motherboard via the live update utility.

All was going well until a promp update failed please try again, I did this and it failed again so i gave up.

Carried on surfing the web and then shut down.

Trying to turn my desktop earlier and I cant even get POST, just all the fans and leds.

I tried to clear the cmos and still nothing, someone suggested booting it with the motherboard driver cd however i cant even get the cd drive to open?

Now I have more or less given up, would it be as simple to just buy a new motherboard and connect everything up to the new one? or will there be problems doing that?

All help will be much appreciated

Will the PC attempt to boot from floppy? does the floppy light come on?

If so download new BIOS and Flash upgrade program onto a floppy. and reattempt BIOS flash.
