    I need to know a little more. Firstly, you obviously tried to flash the bios. Was it the correct bios for sure for your laptop? Do you have access to another computer? Are you still under warranty? Does your laptop not do a thing when you press the power button, or does at least lights come on? (if the screen comes on even better). Hold the Fn key and press the power button at the same time, what do you hear / see from the keyboard lights?

    and of course etc.? :)

It's quite possible that you may have to re-flash it using your old bios. Simply do so (if the computer turns on) the same way as the old one, otherwise, you'll have to send it end in order for them to reflash your motherboard (or as they usually do replace the motherboard.)

YOU could try to take out the laptop coin cell battery, and look for a jumper or a removable chip very near that battery (which will be the CMOS chip, the part you just fried, and the most important part of turning on a computer other than power :P ) Which would make life much easier for repairs (and much less costly). But since it is very difficult to flash a bad CMOS chip back, and because most laptops don't have jumpers, or removable CMOS chips, you'll just have to try the battery and pray. I hope it works for you, I once did that with my old presario, and only fixed it enough to get the screen working but nothing else. Good luck, hope this helped.

Stay Spicy and happy lappying :)

Asus f3j bios mod for upgraded ram

Not sure what you are asking about. Asus site says the motherboard will take DDR2 533/667MHz SDRAM, 2x SO-DIMM socket expandable to 2GB
Which means DDR2 533mhz 1 gig per slot total 2gig
or DDR2 667mhz 1 gig per slot total 2 gig

To enter BIOs press F2 at boot up, but no setting should need to be changed.

They do not have a BIOs update for increasing the memory limits.
BIOs upgrades from first to current are.

Update new CPU Microcode
System plays wave file and causes garbage sound.
BIOS 305
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.

Bios Flash

Are you sure you can't access your BIOS, or the OS selection screen?

In most PCs, the BIOS is accessible by DEL or F2, try to run those steps.
If the OS selection option is gone, you have to use another PC to Google the recovery process, and to execute it I am pretty sure you'll be needing your Opensus liveCD.

I updated my bios , during that the sys froze up and i had to reset the laptop. after reset it shows only blank screen and it wont boot.

on rare occasion, you can download a bios upgrade bootable image.

This can be made into a disc or floppy, and run on boot.

Once the disc or floppy is run, it will begin the process of re-installing the bios.

As of right now, you have a partially upgraded bios, which means you really have no bios.

Your computer will not run because your motherboard is having a major identity crisis.

unfortunately this is not an easy fix, and may require the assistance of the laptop manufacturer.
