Intel Q57 Motherboard Bios Update

I have a intel Q57 motherboard that will not post, installed post card in pci slot and get random error codes (FF, 50, 80, F6, F4)

I would like to reflash the bios

 

How can this be done with a mobo that wont even post (no video or anything)

 

What format of bios file is needed?

First, provide the motherboard model number.

If you are getting nothing from the bios when you turn on the machine, it is unlikely that flashing the bios will work. 

The Q57 chipset does not mean much, except it is already 10 years old.

That is not what I asked for.   What is the board's "model number"?  That, or the AA number.   Look on the board.

Sorry, I see nothing in your photos that indicates this is an Intel board.

It’s a variation of Q57 motherboard

Very similar to:

Not much information I can find on the motherboard, but want to try and fix the no POST issue.

That is fine.  But, bios updates from intel are ONLY for INTEL DESKTOP BOARDS, which your board is not.  Contact sega for a bios update.

You mentioned earlier may not be bios that’s problem, what else could of went bad.

If it can’t be fixed I can source another used motherboard, just exploring options.

"You mentioned earlier may not be bios that’s problem"

No, I did not mention that.
