It has come in a packard bell machine.

The person who has passed it to me used a bios off the packard bell website which has buggered it up.

Hopefully this can be recovered.

Just two questions where to get the GA-8SIMLNF BIOS from.

And whats teh best way to get this recovered?

Thank you

This board is known for bad capacitors:

Better check that first. Then, you need to find out what Columbia board you have, there are quite a few versions. We have updated ones for the Columbia 5 and 7 here:

With widescreen video support. What PB system is this?
