i recently got round to upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 64-bit and when i was installing all the new drivers for Windows 7 i thought i would take the opportunity to update my BIOS as well - big mistake!! I have an ASUS P5Q motherboard and before i attempted to do the update the BIOS version was 2002 and i used the ASUS update utility to update to version 2209 which is the latest available for the P5Q.
The update seemed to go fine, but when it rebooted it just goes to a flashing cursor and does nothing. I used my laptop to download the old 2002 BIOS rom put it on a flash drive and used the EZ flash utility in the BIOS itself to flash it back to 2002 but i still get nothing. The one new thing i am noticing on attempting to boot is a message about the ASUS Express Gate which i had never seen before this little debacle. Any ideas what the hell i have done to my computer?
