Hello,

What BIOS do you have? Some BIOS can be reprogrammed using a ROM file on a floppy disk if there is corruption, such as AMI BIOS.

The trouble is you'll need to obtain the BIOS ROM file specific to your motherboard.

If you are able to get a hold of the exact same mobo, your Windows should have no problem with it.

If you get a different mobo, you'll probably have to reinstall everything, losing all of your data unless you use your current hard drive as a data disk and reinstall on a different hard drive.

I'm glad I'm not you right now... No offense.

Ok, i don't care. Was planning on reformatting anyways.....lol. But the question i really want to get an answer for is the "whole chipset" thing. As long as i get a socket 478 i can have any chipset i desire right? It doesn't have to be a 845pe chipset(same chipset as the mobo i fired) i could chose a socket 478 mobo with an 845GV chipset instead, right? Thanks
and Trotter no offense taken, i guess this is what it takes to reallly figure out your computer. BTW- this is the first thing i've royally screwed up on my computer. Oh yea Trotter you'll get a kick out of this. I told my girlfriend today what happened(she has no clue about computers) and she asked me if it's because of all the porn i look at.....,LOL. Hopefully that last statement will make sense too you.....

Anyways, this is an EPROM flasher
