Only sugestion I can make is, do you have access to another computer? (At work or belonging to a friend perhaps). If so make sure you have the correct details of your motherboard, (Model and version number). You will need a DOS boot disk. Download the files to this floppy, boot your PC from the floppy and run the BIOS upgrade sofware.
