to some reason I don't know why my pc was freezing whenever I played games or do some work even sometimes it froze while doing nothing so I read somewhere about the bios issue and to update it therefore I decided to update using Intel express bios update but it froze during the last second of the bios update so I waited for an hour then I restarted my PC but in turn it would not turn on and the post code was stuck at 00 also the bios LEDs were not lighting , therefore I run a troubleshoot diagnostic using Intel site and did everything that they said like checking cables, removing ram replacing ram. therefore I tried to turn on the pc without ram sticks and there was no beepcode no posting just stick at 00 and no beep message nothing.please help

Ok, in that trouble shooting, did you attempt a bios recovery?
https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005630.html Recovery BIOS Update Instructions for Intel® Desktop Boards
yes sir i tried it but the thing is do i have make the USB drive bootable or simply copy and paste the .bio file in that because i tried it and it didn't work and there was no prompt or display
I am the expert Al was referring to. Sorry I wasn't online last night to help you, but I was busy with my family.
I will attempt to walk you through the process. Follow these instructions; do everything I tell you, even if you have (or think you have) done so already...
If you hit one of the "skip the remaining steps" points, what you should do it remove your video card, plug one of your monitors into a video connector on the back of the board and then start from the beginning of the process again. If this too doesn't work, well, it means that you have likely bricked the BIOS permanently (why, I cannot say from here) and you will need to replace the board (probably a good time to upgrade to something newer).
Hope this helps; let me know...
I have a question regarding the flash drive does that need to be bootable usb drive or any drive also the root folder - the first blank space in it thank you going to post the result soon please see to it sir
Sir , whatever that you told me i did but it's not displaying nothing yet it is still locked to 00 POST CODE. Is my motherboard bricked . I have heard about bios change can't I do that with new bios chip?
thank u for your support
as you told me that my mobo is bricked therefore I bought a new one but that is of different chipset also different company actually its a cheap motherboard of $60 but as i booted into the system it already had my previous setting and also the os was same i didn't had to install anything and on logging in . It said intel express bios update was unsuccessful. for my previous bricked motherboard do I need to install everything again or can I work like this only? so can I do anything about my motherboard ?
please reply sir
There is no way to recover the board via changing the BIOS flash IC as Intel does not provide the BIOS in an unsecured form and this would be necessary to use a flash programmer. You also cannot copy the flash IC from another DX68BC board. This is because your board's branding - serial number, UUID, MAC Address, etc. - are also stored in the flash IC and would be wiped out by the programming operation. As the same time, the branding of the board you copied from would be copied to your board and this would be shared (hint: shared MAC Address is a bad thing). Now, I have the ability to recover this board properly (provided there is no physical problem with the board), but the cost of shipping it to me and back again would be far higher than purchasing a replacement board.
Bottom line, you've done the only thing that you could, namely replace the board.
Now, as I said earlier, you can just ignore the messages from the Express BIOS Update program. What you do need to worry about, however, is any differences in the features of the new motherboard. There might be, for example, differences in the LAN hardware used on the board (all Intel boards utilized Intel LAN silicon, while many 3rd-party boards utilize cheap silicon from RealTek and other providers). Bottom line, you should install all of the drivers that came with the new board. You should also go to the support site for this board and download and install the latest BIOS release and and newer driver packages that you find there.
Enjoy your new board,
Thank You Sir for you assistance, and i completely reinstalled all my system software and the OS typically win 8 now as Intel told me that h61 motherboard doesnt support win 10.1 I dont know why as I was running it before and my friend is also running without any issue or driver problems but still and one more thing If you could teach me how to restore the boards as everyone is not willing to spend money on newer gen. pc I have many friends that do have many issue I sometimes can fix sometimes not So it would be grateful if you teach me how to do it. And if not its well and fine you helped me a lot . A big thanks to you and Ali Sir.
Try Recovery Method, Steps
1. Switch off pc
2. Remove the Bios jumper
3. Plug in the Flash drive with .BIO file eg I recommend BIOS 039.BIO
4. Switch On PC give it like 3 - 5 minutes, it will perform recovery on its own from flash drive, when complete shut down
5. Return the Jumper to the normal position that it was in
6. Switch On PC
