hello i need help...i think i destroyed my motherboard, i m trying to find a solution to my destroyed bios, i was flashing my bios when the process stopped for some reason and i restarted it, that was a big mistake as i realised later, i searched a lot of forums and sites on the net and i realised that i have to make an A dos bootable disk with some files on it and in this way i could reflash the BIOS on my MotherBoard.
i downloaded the upgrade files and made the bootable disk i connected the floppy disk drive on the computer and when i switched it on it showed
Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0

BIOS ROM checksum error

Detecting floppy drive A media...
the led on the floppy drive remains on and it doesn't do anything...
the files i wrote on my disk are those i found in the msi site bios update version12 file 1:AWFL865.EXE file2: W7235IMS.120 and file 3: AUTOEXEC.BAT which contains the following order: AWFL865.EXE W7235IMS.120 /py /sn /cd /cp /cc /cks
i tried several floppy disks with different alterations on the files such as renaming the extension 120 to BIN, i even created bootable disks with different ways both from windows and with rawwritten, i used new disks and i formatted them but nothing works and the display shows only this message
Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0

BIOS ROM checksum error

Detecting floppy drive A media...
i forgot to mention i tried the battery and the jumpers but it didn't work,
is there a solution or is my motherboard destroyed? why can't i enter in dos when i insert a dos bootable disk without any files written on it?

You corrupted the BIOS. Are you sure you have the floppy drive connected correctly? The light staying on is an indication that the cable installed incorrectly. Make sure the red stripe on the floppy ribbon cable goes to Pin #1 on the floppy drive.

Here's how I would perform the flash.

- create a WinME boot floppy ( http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm )
- format a 2nd floppy & copy the flash utility (AWFL865.EXE) & BIOS file (W7235IMS.120) to it
- boot off the WinME boot floppy & choose option #4, minimal boot...wait for the A:\> prompt
- eject the boot floppy & insert the 2nd floppy with the BIOS files on it
- at the A:\> prompt, type AWFL865 & press Enter, then just follow the instructions

to jam
thanks for the response
i connected the floppy drive correctly, i am sure because i tried it on another computer.
and i have tried the way you told me with the to different disks but it doesn't boot, i have tried the same bootable disk on the other computer and it boots...and when i insert the second disk it's ready to flash...
i don't know why the broken computer doesn't read the bootable disk and it doesn't take me to A:\> prompt, thus i can't continue with anything from there,
what do you mean to press #4? is it F4?? it only asks me to press enter when i insert the first disk and then it continuously says Detecting floppy drive A media...

This might be useful if the bios chip is not soldered to the motherboard.
