Bios damaged


You are fortunate that your BIOS has a built-in recovery procedure. However, you will need a working floppy drive to recover the damaged BIOS.

Do you know what BIOS microcode you're using? Specifically, do you have an Award, AMI, or Phoenix BIOS? (Or some other one?)

Award, AMI, and Phoenix all have different procedures for recovering the BIOS. Once you know which one you have, search Google for "XXXX BIOS recovery" (Where XXXX is Award, AMI, or Phoenix).

Typically, the procedure includes placing a BIOS file onto a floppy, renaming it to a specific name (like AMIBOOT.ROM) and inserting that floppy into the drive.

I want to update motherboard bios. manufacturer : esys current bios : Phoenix-Award bios oem : 945p Release 10/24/2005 V6.00PG


DISCLAIMER: It is NOT recommended that you upgrade your BIOS firmware unless you are a.) experiencing a problem related to your BIOS; or b.) a qualified service technician. Updating BIOS firmware can give you undesired results, not the least of which is the complete malfunction of the computer.
TO WIT:
Phoenix WinPhlash is a Windows-based application for re-programming Flash memory device that contains a PhoenixBIOS with Flash2000™. The utility works with all Windows operating systems and works in: Advanced and User modes. Advanced Mode is for engineers and provides full access to the DMI strings and all WinPhlash options. User Mode is for PC users who need to save or update their platformware safely without corrupting the code or causing system failures. Phlash16 comes with WinPhlash as well as documentation for support technicians, end users, and developers of platformware.

boot the pc from cold, note the long identifier number - it contains a 2 character identifier for the board manufacturer. For more info go to the Award bios website, it has a better explanation of this. From there you will be able to either download new BIOS from there, or the website of the vendor/manufacturer.
