: Thanks Henry for helping out. I am glad there are people out there that know this stuff and actually reply. I tried calling a few computer places but the typical attitude is 'you didn't buy something so I'm not going to help you.'

: I guess I'll try a couple different BIOS's since I have a EPROM burner I shouldn't have to worry about screwing anything up too bad.

: I do totally understand your reasoning in your other threads where you suggested people not fix it if it aint broke and I do believe in that. I hope you don't think it's silly that I want to do this because quite frankly I've had enough of Phoenix's 'you don't need to know what's going on' attitude and I'm looking to experiment. I think you are right on though for most people as I at least can recover the EPROM, most people would be forced to buy a new one.

Most BIOS disasters can be repaired by reflashing with the right BIOS. Phoenix BIOS need Recovery diskettes from Phoenix (poke around Phoenix web site) but AMI and Award have "easy" methods if the boot block is overwritten. If interested, read the corrupt BIOS recovery article at:
