Hello again

 

Its my guess the firmware has collapsed

Their is little you can do Im afraid

The firmware will have to be re-loaded or upgraded on your board or the mainboard replaced firmware pre-installed

Would the repair be very expensive?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 5 years ago.

Hello again

 

It can be especially if the board is replaced sometimes $400+ it would depend on the strategy of the repair company sharp agent

Another may redo the firmware on your board that would be cheaper (assuming the board can be saved)

A home visit has costs built in so you would be better off if you can taking it into an approved agent.Its only an approved agent that can do the work.
