You should also replace CMOS battery before flashing BIOS firmware. Also power down your computer disconnect power cable from back f computer and for 30 second press power button connect the power cable and power on your computer see this will resolve the issue.

Thanks for the update thawkins53
Not often that BIOS chips fail but fortunately most if not all are now removable using a pry that is normally supplied with the replacement chip, unlike years back when they were soldered in place

Just wanted to thank you for all your help and suggestions. We ordered a pre-loaded bios chip from the states. This has been fitted and the PC booted immediately.
I dont know if this will work in all cases but as the chip was only about £12 including carraige it is worth the try, rather than buying a new MB or scrapping the PC.
Hopoe this helps others with the same issue.

That is great news, thank you for letting us know that all is now well and for sharing the solution so that it may help others
£12 all in makes the stress a little more easy to manage I should imagine

We tried many things and eventually decided that the problem was somewhere on the MB. Rather than spending the £150 plus for a ne MB we decided to try and find a new pre loaded BIOS chip.
Found one from China for about $12 including carraige. No competion with the prices. Ordered the chip which arrived in about 2 weeks. We changed the current one on the MB abd powered up. Everything worked immediately and PC is still running with no issues.
Dont know if this would be the solution in all cases but for an outlay of $12 it could save over £125. well worth the risk.
Again thankyou and hope this helps others.

Something amiss somewhere as we did receive notification that you had resolved the issue by replacing the BIOS chip on October 31st, regardless glad to hear that all is well and thank you for the follow up
