Default BIOS stuck while updating??

so i was updating the BIOS on my P4 build through the harddrive and by mistake i pressed the reset button....after that the computer wouldn't startup...
So I gave it to the local repairman and HE CHANGED THE PROCESSOR. He just replaced the 2.4Ghz with another 2.4Ghz and the computer booted again...........

So why did the computer boot on replacing the processor.....was the processor broken due to the bios or is the BIOS in the processor( i know it isn't)....what was it???

Default Re: BIOS stuck while updating??

No it would be as simple as resetting the CMOS!! All you have to do is unplug power..Then remove the little CMOS battery...Press power button to remove all power from the system..Then put the battery back in and reconnect power..Should be fine after that!!
