Flash BIOS

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?

If the Bios chip is not soldered to the Mainboard then you can replace it with a new chip. Get the numbers from the top of the existing Bios, make and model of your mainboard, and then contact the Bios manufacturer or Computer surplus store and explain your dilemma and see if they have a Bios chip that is compatible with your motherboard.

Good Luck!

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.
