    when i first turned on my computer i got a blue screen message saying that BIOS is corrupted and now is updating. Then the computer restarts and a flashing dash come up on a black screen and nothing else happens.

    Whenever I restarts the computer the same process happens.

    Anyone can suggest any fixes or causes???

    Maybe clearing the BIOS could help. Look at the motherboard menu, there should be a jumper which you can set to clear the BIOS.

    If you can still enter the BIOS by pressing a certain key on startup, then you can choose Load BIOS defaults or some similar setting.

    If you do clear the Bios with the jumper, make sure the power/battery is disconnected while doing it.
