Sounds like the BIOS corrupted while updating. It's usually easiest to just buy a new motherboard. As for the second one could i please get more information. Is it new? Are you 100% it's plugged in correctly? They usually don't just do nothing. You usually get a sequence of beeps alerting of an error. This may mean a power supply issue.

    Sorry i have never heard of them -damian

    Just a thought. Since they are both the same model you can try putting the BIOS chip out of the dead motherboard into the half working one. Worth a shot. I can provide pictures of what it will look like if you need. In some cases you may need to solder but usually not.

Sistem build on ecs p4m800pro-m motherboard shut down every time

I had the same problem, make sure the connector is plugged in the right way, use USB0 as the manual shows, check the front PCB make sure it's not shorting out at all.

I had the connector backwards.

Problem in audio

Without knowing the model number or manufacturer of your motherboard I would say check the manufacturers site to make sure you have the latest audio drivers. ALSO a general rule of thumb is that when you buy a new motherboard the drivers on the bundled cd/dvd are generally never the latest. Always check the manufacturers site for the latest, it is a common occurrence that motherboards are shipped with broken drivers just to get them out the door, the correct drivers will be on the site.
