Is there any way to flash the bios chip when my system won't post?


Recommended Posts

Hi! I pushed an OC a little far, so when I saved my settings in the BIOS and rebooted, it wouldn't POST. Then, I tried clearing the CMOS. I have probably done so about 15 times. I've also removed the battery. I tried switching the ram and video card out. I think the BIOS may be corrupted. Is there any way to flash it with a corrupt bios without having a system that will post? Thanks!

Hola,

I would suggest finding a buddy with an Nforce2 MB and hotflashing it. I used Wife469s Shuttle XPC (with the /force and /tiny switches) and it worked great. If you don' t know anyone with an NF2 board you might need to get a pre-flashed BIOS from badflash.com or one of the fine peeps around here selling spare BIOS chips. ciao
