    yo.
    i downloaded a BIOS update for my PCChips M922LR mainboard.
    Then i go into dos and use Ameritrends BIOS upgrading program.
    After i upgrade the BIOS and the system restarts....BAM!...nothing.
    not getting any video or anything from the board. It just powers up and goes. Beep......beep, beep.......beap.
    Anyway to get my board working again? I hope there is a badass that can help me.

    Your board should have a jumper to reset the CMOS battery. If you can't find the jumper, just take the battery out overnight and put in back in the next day.

    I cleared to CMOS overnight...no dice.
    Does anyone know anything else that I can try?

    BAM! I got it.
    If any of you try flashing an AMI BIOS:
    make sure to reboot the system holding the "END" key prior to power on until you enter CMOS setup.

    This information can save your life someday.
