Im not sure what that's about sorry. Hmm nothing is helping. Im wondering if you should return the ram for Bdie kit CL 14. CL 14 will be Bdie, the most successful ram for 1st gen.
Please help me , this is just so frustrating... where is the problem now... my pc doesnt even work anymore, the lights and fans spin but the keyboard and mouse and monitor dont light up , did anything happen to the motherboard?

Reset cmos. Downloading bios wouldn't cause this or do you mean you flashed the motherboard?
I did reset cmos by removing the motherboard battery a few times and waiting for like 5 mins or even more . Now heres whst i've done , i downloaded the older bios on a usb flash drive amd then i booted from that one, and once it was done changing my bios amd everything was done, i shut down my pc from the power button as stated in the video i watched , well he didnt say use the power button but he said to shut it down , and after thst i doesnt work now .... and yeah i think i was flashing it with the usb

What version did you flash to? Have you got r5 3400g or r5 pro 3400g? First 3400g bios support since 1201 and the pro version need from 1804.
I have the r5 3400g , i flashed it to the 1820 version , and at the end when it finished everything and then some /c command appeared i shut down the pc from the power button and then it never worked again ... whats frustrsting me isnt the fact thst im gonna have to buy a new motherboard but the fact thst the ram may not run at the specified 3200mhz speed again so idk where the problem is rn and its just so frustrsting

After c:\ the flash was completed. This method has bricked motherboard's for people in the comments downloading the wrong Bios revision which Ezflash would have validated first before proceeding. This utility in the video forces flash if Ezflash doesn't allow flashing to an older version. Did you try Ezflash utility first?

Yes i did try ezflash first and it didnt load the bios so i just followed the steps in the video , was there a certain way to shutdown the pc rsther than using the power button ?

Shutting down the pc wouldn't have caused that. The utility was finished and was just sitting at dos prompt.

Where did you get the Bios file from?
I downloaded it from the official asus website for the prime b450mk , i really hope it isnt bricked but the pc doesnt turn on , like the fans run but the screen is blank

If it works and you get Bios screen, load Bios defaults. F5.
Heyy i tried it a few times with the flash drive in the front io port and pressed the power button to turn it on but ihe screen is still blank, or do i have to do something else ? Honestly i think this motherboard is cursed 0-0

Yes try that and use a usb2 port. Plug it in before powering on.
ok i plugged it in before i powered it on , and i kept it in the back io usb port , a blue one, and then i powered it on, nothing happens :( , are these all the files that i need ?
