Angry No picture on screen after updating BIOS!

I updated BIOS like I always have through asus EZ flash like I always do. It updated, said it needs to restart, so I did. said windows logging off, then the screen went black... I waited a minute nothing, so I shut the PC off and defcided to do some wire management. 30min later, I go to turn the PC on and I cannot get a screen!! nothing! I tried both monitor connections on the video card, nothing! I took out the CMOS battery for a few min, put it back in... nothing! What is going on?! Please help. thanks

try resetting your CMOS by removing the battery for 10min or if your MB supports Jumper CMOS reset use that instead.

ill remove the battery for longer. I have no clue what that jumper looks like, do u just take that out?
ok i moved the jumper fro 1-2 to 2-3 for 10 seconds like it said to clear the cmos, and I have the battery out. gunna leave it out for 10min. I will NEVER update BIOS again... I hope I get a screen again.
