Unrecoverable BIOS crash

By xm9

  1. Asus P4P8X (AMI bios)
    When I booted:
    ..Checking NVRAM
    Overclocking failed!
    then the death blue screen appears (error 0x0000007E)
    When the restart button is pressed, everything went black
    I also tried to boot from a floppy disk, but it won't even boot or let me in the BIOS

    I remove the cmos battery, wait 20 min, then place it in, and power on, it started, I run BIOS and set default settings but it didn't work
    So I repeat the same action again and use the BIOS recovery from the support CD, recovery was successful but when I reboot, evrything was back from the start (all black again), I repeat several times, but now even if I remove the cmos battery and put it in, everything's still black.

    Now whatever I do, it's all black (the power light, HDD light, mainboard LED is still on). All fans works, no device conflicts (think so),
    This time it stucks, really. Please help me. Thank you everyone.
