Default BIOS problem.... i think

Well i have a EVGA nFORCE 680i se sli motherboard. I downloaded an update but it hink it was for the wrong mother board. My computer will constantly crash, and will not always finsh booting. IT shows a bunch of crap i dont know and says to things wich i think are relevant. "none" and "none"

once i hit the restart button a few times it will boot up, but then after a while (sometimes sooner, sometimes later) the computer will crash, and a blue screen flashes for a second not giving you time to read it, and then i go thorugh thoe whole process again.

help would be tremendously apreciated!!!

thanks so much,

Some more info would help! What did you update the BIOS or board drivers?
And what OS are you using?

why not find the right BIOS update and reflash it? See if that fixes this problem? If not then there is somethign wrong with your current BIOS and you need a older version.
