Help! Bad Bios Flash...Mobo Bricked?

  1. Hi folks,

    I have an ASUS M2N-SLI deluxe mobo. I decided to update from bios version 1102 to the latest (1302 or something like that). For some damn reason, when I started flashing the bios using ASUSUpdate, the computer froze while erasing the EEPROM information. After waiting 15 minutes, I became convinced that the machine crashed while flashing, and I restarted, and as expected, there's no bios, so the machine does not post.

    Does anyone have any home solutions to fix this particular problem, or is my only option to send the motherboard back to ASUS?

    Thanks, and have a Happy New Year.

    Thanks for all your help guys,

    It turns out that my BIOS was not lost after all--I just had to reset the jumper for the CMOS data, and everything was okay.
