Help reflashing my mobo!!!

well I had a perfectly working hp mobo its an asus p5lp-le leonite
this link its where i was being helped on updating the bios I cant update my bios for my mobo!

apparently i didnt update i mest it up.

Click the link and read on

Well as you read the forum i mess up the bios and now everytime i start my PC its sys bios checksum error.
please insert system disk.


I just now installed a floppy drive to my PC from an older pc.

I read that you can fix that bios check sum error by putting the bios file on the floppy disk and fix it from here.
But i need step by step instructions like what files do i put on the floppy drive and once i burn the files to it will the mobo recognize the files and get the original bios back?

I just want my mobo fix please.

Any pro out there that can help me?
If your wondering What i did to mess it up just click the link above and read.

Hi,

I remember that thread. Unfortunately you didin't receive good advice concerning your BIOS and it all went pear-shaped because you flashed it incorrectly. The person that convinced you to flash your BIOS is no longer here, to help.

From what I recall in that thread the only option left was to either:

1. Buy a new BIOS chip.
2. Buy a new motherboard.

No amount of flashing will fix your problem - I thought you had realised that at the end of that thread? Do you remember writing this:

yes it is not broken i will not fix it and waste my money when i can jsut get a replacemnt mobo

Well i guess i learned one this in the past two day.. !!! DONT EVER FLASH MY BIOS!!!
Regards,
Golden

Just finished reading the other thread. I agree with everything Golden has said.

I feel for you man, and I know you are hoping against hope, but the damage has been done. You have to get into the BIOS to flash a BIOS and that's that. There is no magic cure.

Sometimes I wonder why a BIOS needs flashing. In all my years (40) of working with computers I have never flashed the BIOS; never could see any reason to do so. That said, you have a very servre problem and that is you will have to replace the MOB. I realize this is a sad thing to have happened, and the only help I can offer is just to say "Good Luck". A new MOB is not all that expensive by the way. You can proably find the same MOB that come with you computer out there somewhere on the internet thus you wouldn't have to worry about reinstalling your OS, hopefully.

Well, what do you have to lose now?
If you can download the BIOS .ROM file for your motherboard (I would suggest the original one), then copy it onto a floppy disk, put it in the floppy drive (that you have connected to the motherboard, right?), and boot.

Hope springs eternal!

Dont worry will never mess with mobo ever again.
Well only the bad ones.

Ok so i jst copy the .rom file in the floppy drive?
the orignal file its from hp becasue my desktop is an hp pavilion a1719n

So do i just copy the file into the floppy or do i need to burn it in a specila way like with some software? or jst a normal burn and install mobo with bad fbiso and let it detec the floppy disk witht the file and and it will install an the wait untill its done rebbot and shold work?

If the downloaded file is a single .rom file you just cut and paste, or copy and paste, it onto the floppy.

Even if it is an .exe file it's the same thing.

Good luck!
