Question about Computers & Internet
Unless you know someone with the exact same motherboard and they let you borrow their BIOS chip (unlikely) ...
you are screwed!
I take it you were doing the BIOS update while in Windows?
If you were in DOS, at least you would have had a backup to resort to - if you did not turn the computer off before restoring the backup.
Blue screens are more likely corrupt software than a hardware issue...a BIOS update is always risky especially for a newby.
You may be faced with getting a new motherboard and/or getting a repair shop to do the work for you.
If you purchase a GIGABYTE motherboard they usually have a Dual BIOS.
