    I think that I wiped out some registry files prior to rebooting. Now can not access system, not even open BIOS setup.
    Put Win xp pro disc in and rebooted many times, pushing DEL to open BIOS setup, but can not. Only comes up motherboard flash screen.

    I really screwed up and have no idea how to access BIOS setup. This is a work machine so in a tight spot.

    Any suggestions would be great!

    What were you doing to your computer before this happened? Where you flashing the BIOS?

    No, I have a Palm TX and was Hotsync with it and computer, Win XP Pro, that's the only thing I can think of prior to the crash.

    I have been able to enter BIOS setup and the HD's are shown, but when reboot or boot only info about the VGA video card and ram comes up then to the MB flash screen. Using an "Acronis" bootable disk I'm able to get to windows and it is working fine. Have flashed the BIOS with most recent update, but still on start will not recognize HD's.
