Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

How to restore my bios on a desktop.

\015 Ok I just wanted to know how to get my old computers up and running. In this case I want to know how to recover my bios on one of my PC. I already know what bios I should download for my mother board and I have a boot diskitte, a flash drive formated with a bios file at the root ready. The thing is the bios would not start up at all. In other words it just a black screen showing up etc. I want to know how it works with a desktop motherboard by recovering the bios using a thumb drive or a diskitte since I had some experiences with a Aspire One Netbook and it worked smoothly restoring my bios using a thumb drive. Please don't tell me to just buy another Bios chip or a new PC I just enjoy repairing PCs with a passion.\015

\015\012or ... there are two (or 3) pins next to the BIOS chip that may be marked reset / normal.
\015\012Either temporarily short the two pins and release (done)
\015\012or ... move the jumper from one side of the set to the other side of the set (pin 1 & 2 .. move jumper to 2 & 3) and then back to the original position (done)
