Question about FIC AZ 31 Motherboard
Hi, can anyone help me this problem:
Award Bootblock V1.0
please insert bootable disket
My m/b: iwill vd 133pc
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:
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.
