PC issue - bios flash gorked it
01/06/17 10:06 AM


So I wanted to upgrade the bios on a machine. I did through a Win utility provided with the bios. Re-started. Bios booted and showed the new number. Re-started machine....and, one long beep.

Nothing unusual apparently. Tried all the suggested bios recovery. Nothing.

Unplugged Everything. Everything. Replaced ram with working ram from identical machine. Nope. Still no recovery either.

The thing is, it beeps right on power-up. Not the normal 'press power button, button lights, pause, then beep, then boot'. Right At The application of power.

No keyboard lights, though. Yet all the ports have power; phone charges through them.

Did the mobo just take a shit or what?


Scifi frauds. SF illuminates.
