Trueflight Silverwing: Was in the middle of using an old 5520 and the screen suddenly went white.

and shows the line press to enter the setup, with the progress bar
below, moves up to 75%. When I press F2 or F12, is says waiting.... But the
progress bar doesn't go 100%. I tried waiting up to about 30 minutes but
there's no luck, the system won't let mo go to setup bios or boot menu. I
tried removing the hard disk ang booting it but the same problem occurs.
I saw your video but the bios i downloaded is different from yours in the
video. i didnt know which to rename with what. i tried without renaming.
but i can't make it work.
Can you suggest me anything I can do?

see that my BIOS is from Phoenix technology.
By the way here is my system specs:
Intel HD graphics3000
2 GB DDR3 memory
