BIOS Lost!

I have changed my CPU from AMD 1500 to XP2200 and downloaded BIOS 1012 from ASUS (MB A7A266)

On rebooting I flashed the new BIOS as per manual and received message erasing of BIOs had taken place but an error had occurred in programming. I repeated the procedure to the same effect. On escaping from DOS the system appears to have attempted to reboot but I now have a blank screen and cannot reboot. Is all lost?

flash back to your old bios if possible

Yes, fans whirring, I'm sure everything is mechanically OK but failing to boot up

make sure you haven't knocked anything loose when you installed your new cpu

Looks like a new mobo req!

such as your graphics card.

The system recognised the new CPU. looks as though I inadvertantly committed the error of rebooting before the BIOS had been updated. Not sure if there is anywhere I can go from here?
