Default Bad mobo

Hi everyone, I DL drivers for my intel D875PBZ motherboard. "win xp home" After reboot it crashed. Black screen is all I get, with a lil happy face at the bottom left. Is this a virus or bad flash? I tried to put in a recovery disk, pull the jumper and boot. That was suppose to recover the bios but it didnt work. I also pulled the cmos for awhile and that didnt help either. Im on the verge of purchasing a new mobo, but figure I would make sure there isnt anything else I could do. Ty

Default Hi There

Are you talking about the bios reset jumper?If so that should help can you get into your bios at all?If you can you can try the reset to default.
