BIOS UPGRADE FAILURE

by TheChas In reply to BIOS UPGRADE FAILURE

Start by re-setting the CMOS memory.

Move the jumper, power up, shut down, move the jumper back.

If that does not work, remove the CMOS battery and unplug the power cord for a few hours, then try again.

The next step is to go through the BIOS recovery guide that is available from www.amptron.com

They seem to shut down their site on weekends. If memory serves me right, you click on support then tech info to get to the guide.

Final answer is to buy a new BIOS chip.
Expect to pay between $25 and $75 US for a programmed BIOS chip.
