    Strangest BIOS problem

    Abit NF7 motherboard. Recently a problem developed...
    Bios doesn't display correctly. System Posts fine, will boot and is stable (ubuntu). Press 'del' to go into bios and all I see is black screen and flashing cursor (can't input). I have the latest (22/10/2004) bios and have tried reflashing, refrash was succesfull but didn't fix. Also have removed PCI cards but get same problem.
    any ideas?

    to add.. its a home machine and I've not done any fancy overclocking tricks this time.

    Problem solved.
    Turned out to be caused by one of the fans - I unplug a case fan and it worked. I assume electical noise or something.
    New one on me, but glad its fixed
