Angry argh - asus p9x79 just died due to turning on 'optimal' mode?

hai guys,


Just turned on my asus 'ez' mode - optimal - for the first time, and now no boot, nothing.

tried resetting cmos loads, and taking out battery and still nothing. lights turn on, everything seems fine but nada.


I have been travelling around india for a few months so I am out of the loop and this machine is new to me - is this a known problem? any ideas what to do? shall I try to update the bios?


Just about to get some prints made for my first exhibition tomorrow so Im a bit pissed off!


cheers for any help!


russ

Default Re: argh - asus p9x79 just died due to turning on 'optimal' mode?

managed to flash the bios back to the first revision and it worked.

scared now to use any overclocking and updating to the latest bios's..


going to finish the project im working on first, what would you guys do?

are the original p9x79's really that buggy?
