Hi,
I was setting-up a computer as a DOS machine when I got the bright idea of flashing the BIOS... :o
I know "If it aint broke..." but I'm usually not that much of an idiot. :o :o
Anyway, something went wrong.
I tried the BIOS recovery mode using the jumper settings on my mobo.
When I turn on the computer, there is a brief disk activity then nothing. Nothing is displayed.
Do I have a newfound paperweight?

Dell XPS R400
Phoenix Bios

Any help is appreciated

Dan

After many attempt at flashing BIOS in recovery mode, I get the 4-4-2-4 POST beep code. :rolleyes: I beleive it is 'recovery failed'. What now? :?:

I have exactly the same problem with a Dimension XPS R350 I was told to use a 16bit graphic card and with this I should get screen up. But of course this did not work.
I await with anticipation to see if anyone gives you a fix.
