OH @@^%@^#@$, I may have messed up my BIOS.
Posted on 2006-07-13
I thought I did everything by the book but..............I got a checksum cmos error, hit F2 to install defaults thinking that would be the safest route but to no avail. Had to turn off. Turned back on windows starts to boot and then I get a blue screen telling me if this is the first time I've seen that screen I'm probably okay but if not then basically I have some work to do. I cannot boot even in safe mode. I can however, get to the BIOS setup. I've looked at and I can't see where the problem is. But then, I'm not the expert. Please HELP.
FYI.....It's an MSI K8N Diamond Plus (aka MSI 7220). I had the award BIOS V.1. I was trying this upgrade to like 1.2 first but then I was going to do it again (boring story behind that) with version 3.? anyway, I'm stuck. Need help. Thanks
