Dead P5N-SLI after EzFlash lock-up

Hello everyone!

Well, this wednesday, I was updating my bios to the latest version. I was using the Asus EzFlash utility, wich can be loaded directly through the bios, and can update the bios through a Pen-Drive, CD-Rom, HD or Floppy, so that I didn't have to go through the hassle of creating a bootdisk and etc.

The problem was that the PC locked up, and the progress bar stopped moving. I left the computer ...

Dead Bios - MSI x975 Platinum Powerup Edition

--Award Bios--
I have a (as said above) MSI 975x Platinum Powerup Edition Mobo. I accidently flashed the bios for the regular 975x plat mobo, and now I don't get a post screen.

I first tried to hot-flash it using another board that uses the same bios chip socket, but unforunately the flashing utility said it was the wrong bios for the board, if ...

Have I fu**ed up this laptop or is it normal?

Hi!

I bought a HP Pavilion ZE5525EA with a bad BIOS flash. It was charging and light came on when pushing the power button. I tok it apart and de-soldered the bios chip (actually cutted the legs and then de-soldered the remining legs). I have ordered a new chip. But now, without any BIOS chip there is no response from the system. No charging, nothing!

Is this normal? ...

Upgrading a 390x with PC133SDRAM not possibble?

Hi

i tried to upgrade myThinkpad 390x (PII 400MHz) with a 256 MB PC133 SO-DIMM module (in the other memoryslot there was a PC100SO-DIMM with 128MB). My 390x boots up and recognizes about 384MB ram. But when it comes to grub (the Linux operating system loader) then it hangs. If I boot my 390x only with the new 256MB PC133 module (after removing the old 128MB PC100 module) then i get even at the boot ...

ECS K8T890-A is dead! boot block recovery doens't help

Hello,

My ECS K8T890 (AMI BIOS) is dead after a failure of BIOS upgrade. I tried floppy boot block recovery. but the harddrive won't access the floppy even though i press and hold CTRL+HOME.

Since it doesn't show anything on the monitor since it's death, i don't know if there is any instruction on screen after CTRL+HOME to force boot block update.

Does anyone have any idea how to save my board? Thanks!!
