Please ... PLEASE ... HELP ME!!!

Okay ... I am a proud new owner of an 8HDA3+. The board is absolutely wonderful and performs like a charm.

So, I come into this forum to poke around and I see a thread about a new bios for the board. I clickity click a couple of links, and 'viola ... there it is on the Epox UK website, a new bios (with memory timings!!!).

It was too much for me to resist. So, I downloaded it and tried ... yes ... TRIED ... to flash my bios. I have flashed plenty of bios chips in my day and never had a problem. Unfortunately, there is a first time for everything.

As it was flashing there was a beep and the screen went blank. Now, when I try to boot my machine I get a Checksum Error message and I cannot get it to boot at all.

I have unplugged it, pulled the battery ... and reset the cmos jumper. All to no avail. The error code listed on the board is 41, which in the manual is "reserved."

How much trouble am I in?!?! Does anyone out there have any ideas?

Try looking here: Uh-oh! Checksum Error? Please Help!

Double posting doesn't help much, as it tends to split answers between threads.
