BIOS and motherboard problem!!!v

hi i have a AK32 shuttle board. i originly had a 900mhz chip.but i upgraded to a amd athlon 2400xp at first i could not see the screen with it so i changed it back and changed the BIOS settings. The AMD chip worked after that.

I have had my AMD chip blown so i put my 900mhz chip back in. but my graphics dont work nnow and i dont have a chip to put back in so is there anyway to chamge the BIOS without seeing the screen like a disc or sumthing!!!

help will be apreciated.
thanx in advance!!!

Everything else works except graphics? Does your os start booting (you can hear it) and you just can't see anything?

Reseat the video card. Check if the VGA connector is properly connected. Also check if there is power to the monitor. When the computer is completely disconnected from AC outlet, try discharging the BIOS by either removing the battery or moving the jumper. If you move the the jumper, move it back to its original position after 10 to 30 seconds. If you have remove the battery, put it back in after 10 to 30 seconds. Then power the computer on.

If Athlons are not properly heatsinked, they will get damage. Use either tape that came with the heatsink or silver heatsink grease. Never use both.
