How do i fix corrupt BIOS in DH61WW

Hello people,

I encountered an issue when I was updating my BIOS. I preferred not to update, but a software (Actually came in as a malware) forced me to. It installed 0099 build of BIOS using the exe method, and the PC did not boot after that. Tried the F7 Update via USB disc, no help. The PC gets stuck at the "Hit Enter for Yes and Escape for No" dialog. Tried the recovery BIOS flash method, but my PC does not display anything for a long time. I also tried removing the CMOS Battery and clearing. Now I believe that my board is bricked. Is there any way to fix it? Will the Intel center be able to fix it?

P.S. my Intel Management Engine shows version 0.0.0.0. The thing that went wrong was that it flashed 0099 over 0016 which I realised after the flash was over.

Re-attempt to install BIOS 99, but this time do it via the recovery method. Check out these links for more information:

Hey people,

Thank you for your support. I did this lately:

1) Removed all the devices from my PC.

2) Removed the CMOS battery and the AC power cord

3) Used a flash stick and copied 0109 build of bios into it, completely wiped.

4) Removed the jumper, put on the flash stick, and booted up my PC.

And it started flashing. The next boot succeeded, and my PC is all good!

Thanks again

Hi CruciformHawk7,

 

 

Let me know first if it is possible to get into the BIOS? The BIOS jumper needs to be over pins 1 and 2, use at least 1 memory stick.

 

 

More details about BIOS jumper, page 51.

Intel has a warranty center for replacement processes. For troubleshooting it is necessary to take your board to a third party pc shop.
