failed video bios update


Recommended Posts

I tried to update the bios of my 4670 card and now the laptop (amilo pi 1556) doesn't boot. I start it, it does a long beep and restart again without seeing anything on screen. I can't even start a blind update with a boot cd. Can anyone help?

If you have access to soldering equipment, try lifting one leg of the BIOS chip. If this makes the system boot (behind black screen), then you need a new BIOS ROM chip (or an SPI flash ROM programmer).

I send it to bios-repair.co.uk and they repair it.
