    BIOS Error 1204 install

    I've just installed ubuntu 1204 and everything went fine but once I downloaded the updates and restarted the computer all I got was a black screen and later on I find
    out that the bios is corrupted or missing. Does anybody know how to fix this.

    Very much doubt that it is a BIOS error. Do you get a BIOS screen when you turn power on?

    It may be some update did not complete correctly. And then it can be a boot issue, a video issue or some driver preventing booting. If you hold shift key from BIOS do you get a grub menu?

    Lets start with boot issues. From BIOS change to boot CD (or USB) that you used to install or liveCD. Assumes you did not use alternative installer as it is not a liveCD.
