I have an extra PC. Its old but I wanted to upgrade it. I tried to update the BIOS since it will enable the motherboard to support some am3 socket processors. But I realized that my method was wrong. I updated the BIOS through asus update utility in windows. It erased the current BIOS but was unable to install the new one. So I was left without a BIOS.
The motherboard is Asus M3A78-CM.
Knowing that it supports crash free BIOS 3, i turned the PC off then power it on again. The fans would turn, there is no beeping sound, there is no display, the lights on the keyboard (num, caps, scroll) does not work but the mouse has its lights on.
I am using a PS/2 keyboard and a USB mouse. I removed every peripheral including the graphics card. I removed the rest of the RAM sticks leaving just a singe 2gb stick.
I tried to plug a USB flash drive formatted to FAT and FAT32 with the latest ROM. Nothing happens, the flash drive doesn't even light up. I already renamed the rom to M3A78CM.ROM but still nothing happens.
Can anyone please help? It would mean a lot.
