Intel mobo won't boot -- One beep, no display.

Hi,

I reinstalled Windows on a friend's computer. He's running a Celleron, on a D845GVSR Intel board. After the installation, I needed to update some of his drivers (for the on board VGA, for his sound card, etc). While at it, I foolishly decided to also update his BIOS, using Intel's express updater.

The updater said it will flash the BIOS, and that I shouldn't turn off the power for about 3 minutes. It then ...

Sometimes bad flashes happen to good people

I have a HP a1250n with an ms-7184 MB in it. The bios was updated to a version from esupport.com.

The floppy is responding. I can boot to a floppy and when I type DIR it ...

Sony PCG K14 doesn't work after bios update

I have a dead laptop. A Sony PCG K14. After updating the bios (PH-A04X10802CL04US), the system power comes on, the dvd resets, but nothing else. I've read many of the posts on this web page, even tried the crisis recovery disk and the LPT key. No difference. Unit doesn't even TRY to access the floppy. I'm wondering if anyone has any other ideas or methods of restoring even the original bios.

I have a MSI 865 PE Neo-2 series motherboard. I was having trouble with my controller card, and I somehow "stupidly" ended up flashing my bios. Now, I can't boot up my computer.

This is the email I sent to MSI Customer Service, I'm awaiting a response from them:

I accidentally flashed my bios. After that, I restarted my computer, but nothing happened. My computer wouldn't boot. I couldn't even get to the Bios screen. ...
