I Bricked My Computer With a BIOS Update. But There’s Hope!
The screen went black, then nothing.
The notification in my task tray suggested a driver update, and I had some time, so I acquiesced. This particular alert prompted me to update the BIOS, and the convenient Intel Driver and Support Assistant let me do this right from Windows. I rarely updated my firmware; however, for the past two years, I’ve been enjoying the Hades Canyon NUC, an ultra-small form factor device the size of a paperback novel capable of low-end AAA gaming.
