Is it possible to flash a bios update without BIOS access or Windows access?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I don't have access to bios or Windows, but I want to flash a new one so I can access it. I have another computer that I can use to fix it.

To my knowledge no.

How do you not have bios access on the system? Missing parts?

It's corrupted and I only see a black screen when I turn it on. I've tried resetting CMOS jumper and battery. Why can't I access windows?

Well how did it get corrupted?

If the computer doesn't post it certainly won't boot the os.

I was flashing a bios using Winflash and my pc froze for 30 minutes so I decided to just turn it off. That's where the problem started. I just want to know if there is anyway I can update the bios or get the old one back

To my knowledge there is no easy fix. I just did a quick google search on the topic and there are some suggestions out there so I would encourage you try that.

Or I would try calling the board manufacturer and see what they suggest. Each board is different, some do have ways to recover from a failed flash..

In the future avoid windows flashes.

"restore bios after failed update"

You could expand by trying the specific board model as well.

If the board is in a custom built system the tech support guys are usually pretty easy to deal with on the phone in situations like this too (asus, gigabyte, evga, etc)
