Question about Tyan Thunder n6650W Motherboard
I flashed the BIOS from 1.01 to 2.02 on my n6650w. I received video after rebooting and I tried to get into the BIOS but the keyboard wasn't responding so I powered down the system then powered it back up and there was no video. I've cleared the CMOS, tried another video card in different PCI slots, reseated the CPU and the power to the board, still no video. Did the BIOS flash corrupt the CMOS chip?
I got fet up with the board and let it sit without power or anything socketed or plugged into it and after 24hours I plugged everything back in and powered up and got video with the new version of the BIOS intalled. Thanks for the help.

Yes could be the problem. Flashing bios is always!! a risky business. Best you can do is check all the connections, ie reseat all cards and memory. If that doesn't work looks like new motherboard time unless you can get a new CMOS chip to fit the board.
