Computer Dead!

  shezzer 20:23 18 Jun 2004

After flashing the bios computer wouldn,t boot up so reset the bios from jumper on the motherboard.All was well on default settings but when i tried to put correct settings computer kept crashing. On the last attempt computer wouldn,t even power up. I have tested the power supply unit on another computer and it works fine.I dont know what i can try next dont want to buy another motherboard until i know thats the problem.Can anyone help?

Sounds like the attempt to update the bios did not go totally as planned. Have you tried to redo it?

Will it start with default. if it does then the BIOS is not at fault

You flashed the Bios and now it's dead...

you'll have to check what they say about how likely it is to work for yourslef thou..never flashed a bios or had it go FUBAR.

This is why they now make duel, dule, ....rats.....

This is why they now make mobo's with twin bios chips, if you flash one and kill it you power-up from the other (un-flashed one) and restore the dud...

If it started ok with default then Bios ok, you may have fried chip when changing settings but would expect monitor and hdd to light.

Reset jumper to bios default and retry what happens?

You have updated your bios. Are you using an out of date manual? Check to see if there is a more up to date manual that suits the updated bios.
