Bios update messed up my video


Have you checked to see if there is a video driver update for your laptop? What sort of video problem are you having now and did you make sure that you updated to the correct Bios version for your laptop?

Hp Compaq Presario C700 bios update and numlock function is not work


Hi, did you download a beta version of the bios? If so you will have to try and install the last bios.
Which version of bios do you have?
Did you download the correct one for your serial number?
I think the current one is F.34
Did you make a backup of your old bios?
What was the reason for the bios update? I think this only improves bios security when a password is used.
If you haven't backedup your old bios, sometime there is and old bios file on one of the setup discs that came with the laptop.

I will try and help more-

Regards - Anthony

I want to upgrade the Award Bios


Don't do it. Don't even think about it. 99% of all bios don't need to be flashed or updated. Unless you have a specific problem with your bios and you go into the manufacturer's website and can read about the bios updates and see your problem as one of the ones that the bios update fix, don't update your bios. It's not going to make your computer run any better, it's not going to cure all the problems you have. About half the time it just messes up your computer or can ruin it. A lot of motherboard manufacturers have come up with Windows based programs to flash the bios but if they fail then you have to go back to the old method and they usually require having a floppy disk which most computers don't come with anymore. If you're one of those people that want to play around with your computer and do a little experimenting you're must better off to go format your harddrive, wipe it clean and start all over. Then you can go find all your new driver updates, software updates, find all the files you just deleted off your computer cause you forgot to backup before you formatted it. It's a lot more fun than flashing and updating your bios because your computer will still work when you get done.

I replaced a motherboard for my Dell inspiron 600m with a used one. It works but system thinks its a latitude d600. I tried to update the BIOS using the Dell BIOS for the 600m and i got a message that...


Hi,
If everything works OK I wouldn't be concerned what the system thinks it is. If you go messing with the bios, and install the wrong version, the your system won't work at all! As long as the system does what it is supposed to do I would care less what it shows as a system name, and wouldn't worry about it.

Hank.

I have the same problem with my T3120 emachine.


could be a 'gray market' machine! i've run into this before- basically 'your motherboard/bios' doesn't exist- good luck! boot up should show what your bios version is, look for that, rather than your motherboard version!
'my computer'- 'properties'- should have your bios info on it. use that info to find updated 'flash', if it's available.
good luck!

How can i update bios of asrock 775vm800. i have downloaded latest file but can't find flash utility on asrock website. ?


before updating your bios make sure there's a valid reason for it... in other words?
1. have you tried other solutions to the problems you may be having
2. is there something in the updated bios that you currenlty need?
3. is there something actually working poorly on your corrent motherboard or built in controlers, sound, usb devices, network controller etc..

when updating the bios there's a rule of thumb that says "if it's not broken don't fix it".. as it may create real problems you may not be able to revert back.

as per installation.. the package with the bios update is an executable file (???.exe) that may come prepackaged in a compressed file (???.rar)... download the file and then use WINRAR or WINZIP a program to unpack the ???.rar file for you to access you exectable file (???.exe) inside the .rar file.

hope it works and good luck..
make sure to back up your data as who knows what may happen...
also.. make sure your computer is not shutdown while your updating/flashing the bios.. this may mess up the board completely!
