Hi.

The BIOS (Basic Input output System) on your motherboard has become corrupted and the computer can't boot normally. The Bootblock is a "failsafe" device that allows the computer to boot far enough to use the floppy disk drive, even though the rest of the BIOS code is scrambled.

How do you think this happened? The most common cause is people trying to "update" the BIOS and messing up the flashing process. Sometimes some particularly nasty viruses can wreck the BIOS code as well.

Now this might be fixable. You will need to download a known good BIOS from Iwill's website and the Award BIOS flashing utility. Then you will need a bootable floppy disk (DOS) to start the computer. You will have to copy the BIOS .BIN file over to the floppy beforehand and the flashing utility. There will be information on the Iwill website on how to flash the BIOS.

Here is a full detailed webpage on how to go about all this:

http://pages.sbcglobal.net/jefn/bootblock.html

I just did a quick Google search using the motherboard details you provided and came up blank ....

If you can't get the BIOS flashed and usable again then I'm afraid it's time for a new motherboard/computer.

Bios failure, or what?


Hi there.
Try clearing the cmos
d015d7b.jpg<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted. If there is no jumper remove the battery for an hour and make sure the power cord is removed from the back before you clear the cmos

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Bootblock


Hi,

This messages indicates that the BIOS could not be located and loaded up. Normally this happens when the BIOS is corrupted. The corrective action required is to re-flash the BIOS using a DOS bootable diskette in the 1.44 FDD. Aside from the BIOS file, a flashing software is also needed. Pls start here.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

check the manual , there is a jumper plug that allows you to move a jumper over to reset the bios to default , ie , the jumper makes a connection between two pins for 10 secds and then replace back to rest position..do this with the pc off and unplugged of corse,
