I read awdflash.exe to update my bios, and it failed leaving me with a PC that won't boot.

Does anyone know if I can get an award bios replacement in NZ?

what motherboard is it and what bios did u try to flash to it?
do you get any error messages when trying to boot??

sometimes even if bios flash failed.

check to see when u turn power on, any floppy drive flash lights?

if so, try blind update without any msg on-screen.

of course, u need member key sequnces.

good luck,

I get nothing on the screen
I hear the screen warm up and watch all the drives get power but there is nothing else

I have an apollo mvp4 chipset from VIA, with an award bios

need to know what MANAFACTURE.who made it. look on the motherboard for any markings/writting. if you flashed the bios you must know who the manafacture is in order for you to get the updated bios.
