Aspire M3985 - BIOS UPGRADE FAIL - Need help !!

FusionzFusionz Posts: 10Member

Hello to the Acer community..

 

Ok i have a problem..my desktop was performing a BIOS upgrade and the computer was unexpectidly shutdown during the end of the upgrade process so now all i am getting is FOUR Beeps and a black screen..no post screen no logo..nothing, things i have tried so far:

 

- Ive removed all expansion cards, RAM etc. so ive ruled out other possibilties to my knowledge

- Removing CMOS Battry 

- Clear CMOS Jumper

- PS/2 Keyboard w/ USB AMIBOOT.ROM pressing "Ctrl + Home" still no avail..

 

Soo i think i am ruled out with 3 options:

 

- Buy a new BIOS chip and "gamble" my chances and solder the new chip on and hope it works

- Try a USB FDD (Probably will not work)

- OR just buy a new motherboard..

 

So yea..i am in a bad spot and i need help, anyone got any suggestions on what i should/could do ??
