I'll ask around for you, but if I was you I would not have told Maplin that
I flashed the BIOS.
"It just stopped working. I don't know what happened to it. Flash the BIOS?
I wouldn't even know how to do that! "
If you read the warranty I think it will say that if you flash it, it voids
the warranty, except on devices where it states otherwise. Personally I have
never had a problem at Maplins.
Anyway, as I said, I will ask around and let you know.
