Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard
Tried to recover bios using the support cd, and after cd was found and file was read, flashing was started, then computer turned off, and now when computer is turned on there is no screen on monitor, and computer just beeps. what went wrong and what can i do?
If you look on any support/bios update forum/website, you will find that flashing the bios is very risky. The reason it's risky is because of what you just described.
While flashing the bios, the bios chip memory is deleted and then the new bios is written. If you lose power, system crashes, or anything that interrupts the flashing process, the chip is rendered useless.
The computer turned off while flashing, and the reason there is no screen is because there is no bios to load. There is no way to reverse this or repair it.
If you are handy with a soldering iron and are confident with electronic components, you may be able to pick up another bios chip on the internet, but you will have to solder it to the board yourself.
Otherwise it's a new motherboard.
Sorry it wasn't good news

Hi, there are a couple of solutions you may try.
Using the support cd that comes with the mobo.
Remove any floppy disk from the floppy drive.
Turn on your pc.
Insert the support cd to the cd rom drive
If it works the application will be update the bios.
When it finishes restart your pc.

There is a bug in the BIOS refreshing procedure. It does not verify itself to make sure the BIOS is really updated.
You need to pick out the BIOS, ie: the EEPROM, with an EEPROM ejection tools or a small screwdriver carefully from the socket. Program the EEPROM with the updated BIOS downloaded from Asus website, using the EEPROM programmer, such as ALL-07. Put it back in the socket, matching with the cut at the EEPROM's corner. Then, turn on the power and check. The POST should come up again.
