I am unable to get the system start up so i am unable to get to the BIOS, i do realize i need to flash the BIOS to the latest version to be able to work properly with my ivy bridge CPU.
It's a problem with Intel based motherboards for a long time. You will have to borrow a friends CPU (or buy a low end CPU that will work in the motherboard). Or you can bring it to a local PC shop and pay them to update the BIOS. Bringing it to a local PC shop to update the BIOS will give you validation that the motherboard works.
