Licked a battery? Bet it gives you a bit of shock, because of the current, that's only 9v. All depends on the current and amperage where you touch it.



Also hot swapping BIOS chips is an awful idea, you can very easily ruin the other motherboard. Best way is to replace the motherboard rather than trying to save it.

I'd seriously just let him get on with it but take away the "broken" board for your own uses. Especially if he tries to sell it, unfair on the buyer frown.gif just drill it into him that he's wasting perfectly good money and perfectly good hardware. Pointless advising him if he's inpatient.

EDIT: Thanks for rep thumb.gif

Always give rep to people who help me smile.gif

Yeah, I'll try to convince him, it's a dead board, and then keep it for myself for later use maybe.

I noticed no one else mentioned this. You said the guy installed the mobo himself. Have you taken it back out of the case for testing? You could be grounded out if he got the standoffs wrong or something.

I disassembled the whole thing when I got it, and the standoffs were correctly installed, so it has not been grounded out. At least not that way...
