    If your BIOS chip is really blank, then you can't do the recovery. You will need someone to flash the BIOS chip with an external programmer.

    Tqhoang thanks for gentles reply. Listen , I have try today to flash bios with a eprom programmer (nano bios prograggrem - so simply and good programmer ) but I have a big problem with file extension. The only one file that this programmer accept is bin file. In fact, I tried to flash with rom file but the operation is not successful (after flashing with rom file and have received confirmation of correct writing the computer will not turn on .I think so the problem is caused by the fact that the file rom is encoded (or compressed).I found the tool of Apokrif for unpack rom file to bin but not working correctly, get this error:


    I searched on google a solution to fix this error but nothing and especially at the level I do not understand anything about compilation software. Any help is much appreciated :worthy::wallbash::wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:
