    Hi. I have a Packard Bell Imdeia 1901 which does not display anything, just a blank screen (no display, no beeps). I am trying to recover the bios on it.

    Does anybody know which Bios this system has. It has a Gigabyte GA-8S648fxm2 motherboard. There is a chip inside which says Phoenix Bios.

    Also is there anyway of recovering the bios. If so could you please point me to the instructions?

    Many Thanks in advance.
