Yes, i understand how tedious it can be sometimes,
To be honest, i prefer to do bios update using the recovery method as it is most of time 95% reliable.
Note there are other ways to update the bios.
All the best,
hi there, could you be so kind to help me...i bought the same mb in may 2007, today i decided to upgrade the bios with the BIOS Update [DPP3510J.86A], i did all steps carefully in accorcance of instruction, i used the "exe method", everything went like in the pdf (the same black screen and text, jumper hasn't been removed), then computer tried to restart and that's all , it can't even boot any more at all, cd drive works, fan spins, sometimes it spins more accelerated, but nothing happens, black empty screen with non-blinked little strip on the left top corner. does it mean that i lost my mb? is any chance to repair it, because i carried all intel instructions during the upgrade making?
when i tried to set jumper in configuration mode then the new version of bios appeared and i could do some settings, after "save and exit" i was prompted to turn off comp. and set jumper in normal position. i did it, but the trouble came back again and no boot actions happened.
what should i do? can i find somewhwre the old version of bios to try restore things? or i lost my mb finally?
