Flash Bios Now Won't work

  I-W 14:30 13 Feb 07

I tried to flash the bios on my pc, half way thru i had a power cut. when i tried to turn the pc back on all i get are the lights on the DVD/DVDrw and a sound from the tower as if the hdd and the floppy drive is starting up, but there it all stops. Nothing appears on the screen. What can I do? I'm running XP

sounds like you may have killed the mobo in which case its replace the bios chip if it is socketed or replace the mobo

the only thing i can suggest other than above would be remove the battery and see if it will reset to origional config you might get lucky

did you switch off computer/remove plug/battery and press start button to clear residual current remaing in caps/and after a period of time replace battery and power up. If it still fails then you will need a replacement working bios chip for yoyr mobo. good luck

If it's a Gigabyte it may have the dual Bios feature (the replaced Bios is kept as a backup).

Some other manufacturers may offer the same or similar feature.
