Can a failed bios update be recovered?

My Medion PC lost power during a BIOS update. MS 7502 motherboard I believe. It won't boot now. Not even a POST beep. Is it dead or can bios be reflashed somehow?

Do you have a floppy drive in this PC? From what I've found you you *may* be able to fix it, but it will more than likely require a floppy drive and a disk. Also, you would need another computer to be able to get the files prepared for the floppy disk, and that computer also would need a floppy drive.

In a nutshell, you would use the 2nd PC to make yourself a boot disk, then put the boot disk in the broke PC and turn it on. In theory, if all goes will, it will read the disk and restore the BIOS.
But you may have to change some files on the disk so it will boot to the BIOS recovery program.

If you do have a floppy drive in the dead PC, turn it on and see if the floppy drive light comes on at all. If it does, then the computer is trying to access the floppy drive, which may allow it to read a disk. You will stand a better chance of getting any recovery to work.

SOURCE: how to update medion ms-7502 Bios?

You download the BIOS update from here. In case you don't speak German, here's the translation:

  1. Download bios7502.exe
  2. Double-click the file and unzip (default is C:\Medion)
  3. Go to the location where you unzipped the files and run WinFlash.exe
  4. You can save you old bios (just in case) as i.e. oldbios.bin
  5. Now open the new bios version with the name W7502MLN.10R and start the update process by clicking the update button.
  6. Reboot and you're done.
Note: Don't run anything else when you're doing this and do not interrupt the process until the reboot is complete. You could risk rendering your BIOS unusable!

If the BIOS failed to complete your only option is a replacement loaded BIOS chip as the motherboard is otherwise a write off. You may find a supplier on flea bay.

MS-7123 BIOS Update


All you need is to get to the command prompt. Try hitting F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode with Command prompt. From there you need to navigate to where the file is. Like C or D dive. Here is where you need to know simple DOS commands. Simplest way is to put the update at the root. That's the first folder so you don;t have to change directories.

It is very important that you follow directions and make a backup. Flashing the BIOS can be very dangerous, that is why DOS is where it should be done.

This will help you get started, but it is up to you to do your homework, because systems very so much. GL

My brother tried to do a BIOS update. I dont know but something probably went wrong during the process and now, all my computer does is power on, no display, it wont even show the POST screen..


Firstly, BIOS updates are precarious at best (especially for older computers and is not a decision to be taken lightly. They are rarely worth the risk.
Here is are some links that "MAY" help you recover from "failed BIOS updates or flashes".
WARNING!!!
Flashing or attempting to recover your BIOS should be done by a professional. I do not urge or endorse the use of these techniques, have no affiliation with the writer(s), and cannot be held accountable for failure. Again...this should be done professionally!!
That being said, I wish you success either way. You may have to copy and paste or type the first one.

The following utilities allow you to manage and update the motherboard

ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
(Updates the BIOS using a bootable floppy
disk or the motherboard support CD when the BIOS file fails or gets
corrupted.)
4.
ASUS Update
(Updates the BIOS in Windows
®
environment.)
Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to K8NVM.ROM.

Recovering the BIOS from the support CD
To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.
4. Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing
so can cause system boot failure!

Sounds like your BIOS update did not complete successfully. Head to the board manufacturers website and check if there is some way you can reload the BIOS and recover from this. Most boards now have dual bios which means that if one bios chip fails or an update fails, you can reload the stored BIOS through the other chip. If you are unable to recover from a failed BIOS update, you may need to purchase a replacement BIOS chip from the board manufacturer. You may even be able to reload the original BIOS onto the chip through your local PC repair store so give them a call and enquire..

Computer won't turn on already replaced power


Try unplugging the PC for at least 10 mins. If that fails... it could be the BIOS failing to Boot. Leaving it unplugged my discharge the System and it may Boot, once it does it maybe best to update the BIOS. If the continues it will force you to replace the BIOS or the Motherboard. If the System is older than 3 years, I would replace the Motherboard and reinstall to a new hard drive and recover your data. Or buy a new system and recover your data by using a USB external HD Container.

To recover your motherboard bios and bring it back to life, you will need this following things:

1. Floppy Drive: It is needed to load the Boot Disk and the new BIOS update.
2. Boot Floppy: It is needed to load the basic operating system, preferably MS DOS.
3. ISA Video Card: Optional, but can simply the recovery process.

Notes:
A startup disk can be automatically built from the Add/Remove Programs applet within the control panel. The boot disk is a vital part of this guide, though users with WinNT/2K will need to build this boot disk from a system running MS-DOS or Win9x/ME.

You can obtain it also from this website: www.Bootdisk.com

Be sure to copy all needed BIOS utilities and update/backup files used during the original flash process to this disk as well.

After making the boot disk, delete the config.sys and autoexec.bat in the boot disk. It can be found in the disk primary directory path.

Create your own autoexec,bat. Using a notepad, build the autoexec.bat file by putting all the command lines in flashing a BIOS.

The approach for using flash utility from AMI or Phoenix is similar, but be sure to read the provided help information about each command line option before building the autoexec.bat entry. Create the text command entry, and then save to the file "autoexec.bat" in drive A: . This will load the command at floppy boot time, regardless of whether an ISA video card is available.
