the bios on my 2.2lite+ seemed to spontaneously "go bad" a couple weeks back for no reason - it would just frag 3 times every time - so i was told the best option would be to buy a programmer. except the programmer doesnt seem to work worth shit. ive used a number of tutorials, but the chips used in the tuts are older, except for this
one. but x2cable still gives me SYNC errors, esp. F. also, either x2cable or the programmer fried both my and my roomates lpt driver, to where it simply could not recognize or access the lpt port...had to do system restore to undo that. it is just becoming a huge, inexplicable hassle to get things up and running when i dont even know what happened in the first place. any help/advice with this programmer thing would be much appreciated.
