Recovering a damaged BIOS is simply a matter of replacing the missing or damaged code contained within the CMOS or EEPROM. This is not an easy task and some computer knowledge is strongly advised if attempting this.
You can solve the problem by removing the Lithium battery on the main board, wait a few minutes, then put the battery back in and reboot.
The BIOS will detect that there are no BIOS settings, and use some default settings. NOTE...It will tell you that some settings are erratic, but at least you are now able to press DEL to enter BIOS setup.
After entering setup you will be asked to choose either "Load default fail safe" or "Load optimal settings". The latter will work most of the time. Save these settings, reboot and see whether your attempts were successful. I've seen this type of boot failure on many machines and in case of bios update failure, this has worked 90% of the time.
If, by chance it does not work at once, try to keep the battery out a little longer, and short-circuit the + and - pins of the battery socket.
When you do get some life back into your PC don't forget to check that you indeed flashed the correct BIOS version that belongs to your motherboard. Maybe you flashed just a slightly different version. If so, find the correct BIOS version even if your PC seems to work after following the above steps, find the correct BIOS version and reflash.
I WISH YOU LUCK!
