So I ran into a dram led red light, made a change to ram settings in bios and after that I could not get the system to post. I went to flashback my bios and after I plig in my correctly formatted USB, it blinks. It doesn't stop blinking. For hours.

I then took the USB out, reset the system and it starts for a split second before turning off and trying to start up again for a split second, etc...

So now I can't get into bios and if I plug a flashback usb it just continues blinking as if it is making progress. The USB has a light and there is no activity going on with the USB. I have several USBs that, after formatting, get to the blinking stage.

Is there anything I can do? CMOS has been checked. Thank you for reading, I really do appreciate it!

the bios could be corrupted, luckily it's socketed, you could find a similiar bios chip and hotflash the bios. might want to bring it to a local pc repair shop. but even after the new bios chip installed and propperly configured and still wont boot, it's either the mobo or the cpu.

I do believe it's the Mobo, my thought is it's where the video card is, I am using the not optimal slot because I have a water-cooler in the way.

Hey, I made an account just to say what fixed it for me, after trying everything, was to not use the absolute latest BIOS file. stupid as it may sound but I tried everything, removing RAM, CPU, BIOS battery, MBR formatting, etc etc, the o0nly thing different was i used the 2nd to latest BIOS file and it's flashing... Will try to finally post soon I hope as it's now a happy fast green blink...
