well, I wouldnt use anything downloaded from KAZAA, if thats what you meant, let alone my BIOS...even when I download it from a trusted source, such a mfg. website, I run AV scan on it. Yeah, Im paranoid. Now, CIH virus does attempt to ruin your BIOS but cases of that are rare...the first payload of the virus goes after boot sector on your HD...The second part of it goes after flash BIOS. Since there are many types and versions of BIOS, it usually does not succeed in corrupting it...it seems like that part of the virus was written poorly. If it does succeed, it goes after flashBIOS, throwing it into a loop...now again, due to the sloppy virus, sometimes you get trough and boots ok, sometimes you get nowhere... try downloading fresh BIOS version from mfg. website and flash it....If it doesnt work, you might have to get a new mobo

HTH....
