bios no show

Post by arthur dent » Sat Nov 22, 2003 7:45 pm

hi all,

i followed the instructions to update my bios with ru edition before loading w2k and something must have gone fatally wrong.

the power will come on but the system is dead. everything seem to go perfect while flashing the bios, i hit f1 and nothing.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanx.

Did you reset the CMOS?

Hold down "INSERT" on your keyboard while booting.

And welcome to the message board! :)

Hey Arthur Dent! I'm a H2G2 fan too. :)

If your BIOS is badly flashed, you can get a display up by using an ISA video card, and the BIOS can be flashed again.

thans for the reply guys.

i tried holding down the insert and that didnt help. i placed and isa card in that now allows me to boot. however; i cant not get back into the bios.

after some thought, i beleive i forgot to disable the video cache during the initial flash, so i dont know what the severity of this screw will be.

i can boot with a boot disk to the a:\, but i cannot seem to get back into the bios to confirm or deny that i properly disabled the video cache.

any suggestion would be great.

no i had not tried to flash it again with an older version. im just not sure if i should attempt a re-flash of the bios without being able to get back in and confirm the video & cpu cache are still disabled.

i guess it wont make it any worse than it is?
