I have windows XP with an asus A8N SLI Deluxe mobo, amd 64 3500+, nvidia 6600 GT. I recently tried to update the BIOS using asus's BIOS updater where you can supposedly update your BIOS from the internet with out having to create a bootable floppy disk and all that groovy stuff. After I restarted it, it would go through the post then it would proceed to give me some options. Start windows normally, start windows to a known default when it worked properly, start in safe mode. I have tried all the options but they all do the same thing, it just starts the computer over again and comes back to the screen with those options. So Im wondering, do I need to flash the BIOS to get it going again? Or will a fresh install of Windows XP do the trick? Or is it dead? Thanks.
