Hi,
We have a strange problem.

We have a Shuttle computer and we have (we think) flased a wrong bin file into the BIOS.

Result : When you start the computer, nothing happens. The fan is running at full speed, but nothing comes on the screen.

So we thought to buy a WILLEM programmer. We bought it in Hong KONG.
The BIOS chip is a SST49F004A (a 4 mbit chip).
We have downloaded a couple of bios flash files of which we are CERTAIN that they work well.

We have flased the EEPROM as we can read the content with WILLEM programmer and the .bin file is programmed in the chip.

BUT....the computer still does not start !!

Now is my question :

Are there certain parameters that needs to be set on the Willem programmer so that the chip is programmed in another way (you can put 16 bit or 32 bit programming, etc etc...)

Who has experience with reprogramming a Phoenix Bios flash chip with a Willem Programmer ?

THanks,
Stefaan
