I have a motherboard - FOXCONN G31 MX-K. While I was updating my BIOS with the latest version , the computer froze up halfway through the "Programming' status bar. My computer was relatively new. I restarted the computer, only to find that the POST screen does not display, and nothing happens -no visual display on monitor.
I tried to reset the CMOS jumpers and CMOS battery methods, but with no luck.
By the way, my computer does not have a floppy drive.
My BIOS is Phoenix Award.
Now that my computer is stuffed, I am frustrated and I really don't want to fish out lots of money to get it serviced.
Since I bought it in Hong Kong, I don't want to get it replaced under warranty.
I heard that the BIOS could be replaced on floppy, and if it could be done, I'm quite happy to buy a floppy drive (only $15 bucks or so).
Also, I looked on the internet and found out about some 'Phoenix BIOS Crisis Recovery Disk'. Is it suitable for all motherboards, even for desktop ones, not only for laptops?
