    Howdy,

    Can you set the bios to default by either getting into Bios on startup tapping F2 or DEL or which ever key get you into it or shortening the jumpers on the board for the Cmos battery or taking the Cmos battery out for about 10min and putting it back in.

    If you did that Bios update from a floppy on boot up - I'd try that again...

    What brand + model are we talking about?

    Bad news, you'll need to find someone with a chip flasher to reflash your BIOS chip or have the motherboard warrantied.

    However if you're using a seperate PCI-Express video card then take it out and plug into the onboard video.

    I agree you are going to either have to replace the bios chip, replace the board, or send the bios chip in to badflash.com and have them reprogram the chip.

    If you want to try plugging in a floppy drive and see if your system will access the floppy on boot up. If it does, it is possible to make a blind bios flash disk. This flashes the bios with no input from you; it does not matter if there is no display. The blind flash will take place and you then restart.

    Note this ONLY works if the system will access the floppy on bootup.
