Hey everyone! I've recently reinstalled Windows XP and was playing WoW and had some low framerate issues and decided I would update ALL drivers and such on my PC and see if it helped. Well I got to reading about BIOS updates on the ECS website http://www.ecs.com.t.../...D=1&LanID=9 and noticed that one of the updates was for issues with this Mobo using a ATI video card (Not the one I have but I figured hey maybe mine will work better with the update) so I downloaded the BIOS update from the site and it included software to erase and rewrite my BIOS. Well I ran it and it worked fine. Just like normal my PC restarted and I got the usual errors when you update a BIOS (CMOS Checksum Bad)(CMOS Date/Time Not Set)(Press F1 to Run SETUP) But my keyboard wont operate..... It doesnt seem to do ANYTHING I tried to press F1 and it didnt work, so I tried to do the CTRL ALT DEL to restart and it doesnt even work. I even tried to use a different keyboard and it didnt work. Both PS2 Keyboards not USB! I tried to clear the CMOS and even took out my battery for about a half hour, still no Keyboard response.......... Anyone have any idea? Thanks in Advance.......

welcome to geeks 2 go

This was posted on the page of the bios update.

* Please do not update the BIOS if your system is running fine.
* Please do not update the BIOS if the BIOS patch doesn't pertain to your current problem.
* Please read the update description and special note carefully before updating the new BIOS.
* Unsuccessful BIOS flash may cause the system fails to boot up.

Now try a usb keyboard. reseting the bios wont do much cause the bios was changed and old one erased as u posted you did.
If you manage to boot you will need to update the bios again.
Go to this link and tell us the name and version of the motherboard.
