flashing me ol' bios

Having found that a new bios version for my mother board exsisted (INTEL 865PERL), I decided to flash the bios. However, during the process my power supply decided it would stop working and my computer lost power halfway through the bios flash. My question now is if I were to flash the bios again, would this fix my problem (said problem being that my computer now will not boot up or if it does it simply freezes halfway through the boot). Any feedback anyone could give me would be great.

It gets as far as the black and white Windows is starting up screen. The compter itself turns on, just the bios seems to not be working all that well (read as: not at all). Before you ask Win2k won't startup at all. I've got HyperX memory from Kinston which needs to be manually configured before windows willl start up at all. However if I try to access the bios so as to change the setting for the memory. It will simlply never load, or load and then freeze up.

You can't do any more harm then is done Flash it again. Did you by chance get as far as saving the existing BIOS as a backup?
