I have dz68bc motherboard that was working fine in my computer for over one year. Once I rebooted and the computer got stuck in POST.
What I tried:
The only components I couldn't replace or remove are motherboard and CPU. So I assume one of them is broken.
I even tried to connect UART reader to the serial transmit pin of the board's debug connector, but I didn't get any data out of it.
Any ideas what could I try to do to fix it or find out what is wrong?
Any tips whether it is CPU or motherboard issue?
Is there some very low-level way to flash the BIOS to newer version? (So that I can try the other CPU.)
Michalsrb, the troubleshooting performed was exceptional; however, did you try to remove the CMOS battery? If you did not, please remove it and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system.
