Killed my PC

So its dead.

Long story short, i went to update my bios yesterday, saw there was an updated bios version that had a fix for temperature control (so i dont have a freaking tornado generator hopefully), i think i downloaded the wrong (they have two versions, one called Diamond Flash Image and one for normal bios update) one and when i uploaded it with Winflash it still took the changes. rebooted and wont get past "Verifying DMI Pool Data" and my debug LED's stay on 96.

suckage. i cant boot via floppy cause i cant get past the point where it verifies DMI pool data, so the board is ****ed (or at least unless i can replace the bios chipset itself)

Re: Killed my PC

you can also make a boot disk that will flash the bios when the computer starts up. Had to do that with my sister's comp since it would not even load windows, hope that helps.

Reset the CMOS and pull the battery out of the motherboard.

cant get to the boot screen. boot screen comes after "Verifying DMI Pool data" check which is what it hangs at, so a bootable disk (which i have tried already) is pretty useless.

hopefully tonight my buddy can get it fixed. says he has a burner that can reflash the bios on the chip directly.
