was not sure where to post, so sorry if this is not the correct place.
I just got a new HDD put it into my PC and wanted to do a fresh install of windows, so i plugged it up booted into the BIOS and started changing up boot priority.
Everything was going fine and i got to the exit screen and wanted to save and exit, and put the windows disk into the drive, right then the bios froze completely and had to do a Hard reset
after that my PC would not post no beeps nothing, figured bios was screwing so i reset CMOS with the on board jumpers, turned my PC on and still nothing, turned it off unplugged it and left it for 30mins came back to try again and it got to post past the welcome screen but my old HDD`s S.M.A.R.T function is a bit screwy (reason i got a new one) and halted the boot process asking me to restart i did and again....no post. Since then I was able to get it past post but was not able to enter the BIOS, I would like to flash it but EZ flash will not load up.
Do any of you have an idea what might be the problem and how to fix it ?
