    Did you find the right .bin file and flash utility for your BIOS? If
    you follow my hints in your previous thread there would be a 99%
    chance of it going OK. I had no problems flashing my mobo and DVD
    drive. Some flash utilities will give you the opportunity to back up
    the existing BIOS.

    I've done a few "hot flashes" like this and they work really well. The pin
    outs are the same for all the major chip manufacturers too so the hardware
    doesn't necessarily have to be identical.

    And you get the extra bonus of the really worried look on the computer
    owners face when you're taking the chip out with the machine running. LOL

    Anyone flashed during an electrical storm?
    Im sure they can tolerate brown-outs during flashing :p

    Hardly see that warning in a manual.

  8. If you're really careful and have another motherboard which is
    electrically compatible, you can flash the chip in that.

    Warning: not for the fainthearted, you have to remove the working chip
    while the board is on, insert the messed up and run your flash program on

    Before I reply to this post: Try not to top post please, netiquette
    says bottom posting for usenet.

    Anyway... was I helpful?
    Also, you may want to give a little more time between asking the
    question "will this work?" and actually doing it.

    I mean, original post...

    Ignore whinging about top posting, it is one of the most inane and stupid
    complaints ever found on Usenet.
