    The first thing you should try is to clear the CMOS by using the CLEAR CMOS jumper or by temporarily removing the CMOS battery.

    Beyond that you're going to need a new chip, motherboard, or to find someone with a flash programmer.

    If you flashed the bios and your system is not functioning at all besides the power being on. Chances are you probably flashed it with the incorrect bios. This is something you cannot make a mistake on. It has to be the correct one otherwise the motherboard is nothing but a paperweight. There are exceptions to that rule, but were talking about the most current boards and not a pentium 2 motherboard.

    The term flash programmer is a machine which programs the instructions onto the bios chip. If by chance you flashed your bios with the incorrect one. Unless you can find the exact same motherboard you can swap the chips. Otherwise the flash programmer is your only option to restore your bios.
