|I just read about how you can save an erased bios because pretty much the same thing just happened to me this morning. Just a couple of hours ago I downloaded a bios update from Dell because their update manager thingy reminder said I needed it. |
I had no idea that a bios update would kill my beloved desktop computer, and stupid me, I did the update. Now I'm stuck on my laptop.
Just like you, everything seemed fine until it locked up at shut down. Or at least I thought it did, so I manually shut down my computer. But now I'm wondering; if only I had left it alone longer maybe.....
But anyway, it was a bad move on my part because now my computer fires up but no bios. The hard drive sets and spins a thousand miles an hour, the screen stays black & I kick myself.
I called Dell and their tec said pretty much sorry about your luck, now you need a new motherboard.
But I just not ten minutes ago, found a site that tells you how you can save your motherboard even after some kind of a nasty virus wipes it clean.
I wish I knew enough and that I had the parts handy, I'd save my own motherboard with this information. But at least maybe you can make use of the knowledge.
