I have a BCM motherboard, QS440BX-2mb. I installed a Maxtor 30 gig hard drive ATA 133, 7200 rpm with a PCI Maxtor Adapter Card. The Bios is Award 32dip pin made by Winbond. I obtained the upgrade from the BCM website. Upgrade for 2mb chip was version 2.10. I booted from a floppy with config.sys and autoexec.bat files deleted and new bios upgrade on it. The process started fine until a few seconds into it and then the screen went blank. Only thing that seems to be working are the fans. I removed the bios chip to have it professionally upgraded but can anyone tell me what could possible have happened so that I can be on guard for the next time. Thanks,
