Hello,

today I decided to update my MB BIOS to the newest version 3805 (before that I had default bios from 2015, dont know the number).
I used EZ flash 3 in BIOS, update went fine but at the end it said something along the lines of "update sucessfull, Pc will now restart" but it didn´t. It was stuck for 3-4 minutes, then I hit hard reboot.
Since then I get no signal on my monitor (using DVI / display port) neither from GPU (GTX 1070), or integrated one.

I tried clearing CMOS battery for few minutes and CLRTC pins reset, with no result.

Only thing it solved (always until next reboot) was turning off the VGA_LED - which is on pretty much constantly after reboot (and so is the Standby one)

I get no beeps on startup, every fan runs correctly and the "ornamental" LEDs on MB are blinking.

I read somewhere that later asus bios arent desingned for all procesors, but why would it give no signal to monitors?

My other specs are:
i5 6600k - Skylake
32Gb RAM
GTX1070
2*SSD
3*HDD

Hi, As a last option, you can order a BIOS chip on ebay and replace the board's one.
Oh, that is at least a month of waiting (not living in US).
Nevermind, time for upgrade then.
Is there any possibility that BIOS update would damage the GPU?
