    So,

    During a BIOS update yesterday my PC crashed.
    Upon launching I was introduced to the Asus BIOS recovery screen.

    Q) What's the likelihood of this getting fixed without having to solder anything

    I'm by far no expert when it comes to repairing computer or even hardware in general, but I really don't think solding is gonna be needed at all. It's a software fault, not hardware. Reïnstalling the BIOS should do it, though I've never done that so I don't really have experience on it.

    I tried a couple things. I called my mate up and got him to bring a CD drive over, which after plugging in stopped the PC from doing anything, as I have the Asus repair CD. But you know, no CD drive no fix.

    What can your PC still do? Judging from a few guides online, it seems like you can manually download a BIOS somewhere, put it on anything such as a USB stick, then restart the computer, go into BIOS settings (if this is still possible), then perform a new BIOS update from the disk (the USB).

    Couldn't get into BIOS. Was thrown into a BIOS Recovery screen straight away. I had a BIOS version on a memory stick that I could flash onto it but it wasn't detecting it.

    I think you can revert your BIOS version by pulling a part of your computer and putting it back in (I think is the battery or whatever it is). I don't remember how to do it but, i believe there's a tutorial in the internet.

    You're talking about the CMOS battery? Removing that wouldn't help because it's the BIOS that's corrupt not the memory the battery keeps saved.

    Well... im not sure, im not really a tech guy so i couldn't help you
    I think i read something like that somewhere that it reverts your BIOS to default doing that ..

    Anyway, hope you find a solution to your problem soon.
