By littleaussiebattler ·
Stupid me went and updated the Bios on my old cyrix 686 and now i have no floopy drive or mouse.I know what i done wrong [when it said the number does not correspond with your sys i should have said no instead of yes][told you i was stupid]anyway damage done now. Is there anyway i can rectify this. I did backup my OLD BIOS but i cant boot up without a floopy drive.I have tried everything i know [not much ah] so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Bios Update

by TheChas In reply to Bios Update

Have you tried resetting the CMOS memory?

That can often help recover from a flash problem.

Their is a download guide that might help you.

It is posted at www.amptron.com
click on support,
tech documents,
BIOS recovery.

You may need to find a friend who is into electronics, and has access to a PROM programmer.
They would be able to take the BIOS IC and the saved file and load the original BIOS back into the IC.

Or, you can try BIOS providers such as:
http://www.biosworld.com/
or www.unicore.com

Expect to pay between $25 and $70 for anew programmed BIOS IC.
