If a client brings in a PC they tried to replace the BIOS we find the motherboard is beyond recovery. Yes, the maker may have a service center but we don't repair motherboards beyond say a connector or simple repairs.
This model should NEVER need the BIOS chip replaced even if you fail to update.
I won't go over that feature as it's on the web.
My view here is you'll ask the maker "How much?" to swap that motherboard.
Also, next time, explore the BIOS recovery methods these boards have as I've rarely seen anyone but seasoned techs solder in a new BIOS without destroying the board.
I have been using this PC for about 3 years now with no problems. I was gone all summer and when I came back I went to update the bios and it failed mid update. After this the computer would not turn on at all. I then proceeded to replace the bios chip and now the computer turns on for about 10 seconds allowing me to just get into the bios or just get to the login screen before it turns off again. I have tried replacing ram, and power supply, resetting the cmos and battery and also trying to turn on without any pci devices. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it, or is the motherboard just bricked?
My hardware is:
Hyper 212 cooler
16 GB Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz
Nvidia GTX 1070
Asrock Z170M Extreme 4
