i have DG 33FB motherboard with quad core 2.4 ghz processor. yesterday i updated my bios with latest version available on intel download centre. But computer didnt boot up on restart.It is not showing anything , just black screen.
I have tried every possible method given on intel site like removing and the placing back CMOs battery and also all posible bios recovery methodsgiven on site but nothin worked.
Even maintanence mode is not showing.
i have tried that too.
but nothing showed up on screen.
what exactly this recovery method is??
is this method is different from the one in which we remove cmos battery and keep it out for 10 mins?? I have tried that and alos other methods given on intel site but this one wasn't there.
Please tell me how to perform recovery using this method??
It is the Recovery bios update procedure. Click here to read the pdf file. It requires you to remove power to your computer. Remove the bios jumper. Put CDROM or Flash drive or floppy disk with bios file in the particular drive. Power up.
thnxx man for the promt reply but i have tried it already.
I though u asked me to remove cmos and jumper and then do something.
i have tried all the methods given in that pdf already.
i dont know what i am doing wrong.I have followed the procedure exactly.
do i need to make USB stick bootable ? If yes, then please tell me the exact procedure. It will be very helpful to me.
There is no need to have the flash drive bootable if you are doing the recovery. When you are doing the recovery, do you find the CDROM drive or Floppy drive activity LED blinking? If yes, that means that the system is trying to load the bios file (It takes time to load the bios file). So use an old version bios that you find to be working previously. Do not use the new version.

Well Guys, I think I am a new member of this unfortunate club of the DG33TL owners who had the bad idea to update the bios of his motherboard. Anyway, I FINALLY managed to solve the problem. So you got the ugly black screen with the top left cursor. OK, so you maybe want to do that
1/Turn off the comp, unplug the alimentation, remove temporairely all the unecessary peripherals.
2/Put the jumper bios in position 2-3
3/Turn on the comp and go into the bios menu, desactivate the core multiplexing technology (it's for just a moment), save your options and turn off the comp.
4/Put the bios jumper in position 1-2, turn on the comp, you can go now in the bios menu, then load the optimal settings of the bios, save that, and reboot, the core multiplexing technology is activated again, but the black screen is forgotten, you can go to the bios menu normally to customize it for your needs.
5/Replace your peripherals, and yeah, your OS boots normally again.
6/Say loud "Shame to Intel" for this crap.
