I flashed motherboard with a wrong BIOS. Now it won't boot, not even let me press DEL to enter setup. Can I do something about it or is trowing away the motherboard my only option?

Some cheaper alternatives:

1. If you have floppy access, you can do a boot-block bios flash.
2. If you have access to another computer, you can try hot-swapping.

This should answer both questions. I go by the handle soupy on Wim's message board, so if you have any more questions, feel free to ask them there.
