Hi all,

 

Wondering if I can pick your brains for some help here.  I was updating the BIOS on my Zotac Nano AD10 when it shut down without completing the update.  

 

Is there anything at all I can do to revive it or do I now have a nano doorstop?

 

Current behaviour, it turns on, fan spins, green ring lights up.  No start up beep, no display.  (ring LED was turned off before update)

 

Thanks!

It is now a Nano doorstop, unless you buy a new BIOS chip and pull the old one out and put the new one.

Thanks.  Got the non-soldered one.

Cool. Make sure you buy a DIP/DIL package remover. It will make the job much, much, much easier!

Thanks for the tip.  I'm cheap and have pulled chips out before with a screwdriver.  Heck, the old one is no good so no loss if I lose a pin or two :P
