F.40 is the latest bios for this system (it just came out Aug 2008).

If you have one of the model that supports 2 drives and the problem is that it does not show up in windows, you probably don't have a bios problem.

Right click on My Computer - or just Computer if you have Vista
Select Manage
A Computer Mangerment windows will open.
Click on Disk Management
The attached drives will now appear on the right.
Do you see an unidentified drive, no drive letter etc?
Right click on it and initialize the drive, now create a partition and format the drive.
You can also assign it a drive letter.

Now you should be able to see the drive in My Computer (or Computer)

Hp 20-f230 bios battery replacement


Remove the case and it is usually a CR2032 button battery. You will see it on the motherboard with a small clip. Having said that, your is not a straight forward desktop, but a Apple type clone. There is a picture of the motherboard here and I don't see anything that looks like a CMOS battery. You can contact HP Support direct.

Gateway essential 500 blinking cursor, how do i uninstall windows i have a windows 98 to put in will that work?


Yes, but does the system see the hard drive?

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

ER 1402-05 Upgraded to 4GB RAM and 500 GB Samsung HDD Everything working fine for about a month. Now on Boot, BIOs will not detect my C Drive - not sure what to do next


Try looking in your BIOS, look for anything that indicates that it see's your hard drive at all. You should be able to see the hard drive size from the BIOS, if not, check the power and data connections inside your computer. Does the hard drive power up? If you don't feel it running, it could be that it has died.

Getting a media test failure on initial boot up then windows blue screen pop up when windows tries to start. Is my video card not working properly? BIOS was reset.


probably hard drive failure.
try changing the boot order in bios.
if that doesnt work try reinstalling windows.
If windows doesn't reinstall then your hard drive is bad.
