U have got a person with no hands, mouth or anything to take. First of all, u have to have a CDROM or DVDROM. Now coming to the point, first format the USB Drive (pendrive) and copy the system start up files in it. U can do it on other computer by the following steps: 1) FORMAT the drive. 2) go to DOS mode, then type COPY COMMAND.COM D:  (D: means the drive letter of the Drive)
COPY FORMAT.COM D:
3) for the bios setup... Press the F2 Key or DEL Whatever is ur bios activation key. (ESC/F1/F10/F12) 4) in the bios, go to the boot priority section. 5) in the first boot device, put the USB drive. Press F10 to save and exit. also u may just plug the USB drive in the port and the system will automatically boot from there.
6) when the system starts, it will enter the command mode. enter the following Command, FORMAT C: and press ENTER and ur job should be done. Also next time u install antivirus right after the installation of OS, before any program else there is always chance of virus infection. There are many free antiviruses such as Avira, AVG, McAfee etc...

Usually, the only setting in BIOS you have to change is the boot order, so you can start from cd.
As for hanging, it might be dust. Yes, it does tend to overheat due to acumulating dust in the cpu fan.
Also, before you format, make sure you have all the drivers for you hardware and get the latest updates for your operating system, because you SHOULD NOT go online BEFORE installing the drivers, updates and the antivirus, in that order. I know it is a bugger, but reboot everytime the computer asks you to.
If you need more detailed explaining, post a comment. Meanwhile, I´ll research about the board.

Hello, I have updated BIOS of Intel 845 GVSR board. But after the successful update USB is not displayed in BIOS hence no USB device is getting recognized. Please help.


Had exactly the same problem. This process fixed it for me:

http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/tech_reference/box_processors/int_inst_info/factory_notes_all/203939.htm

  1. Shut down the computer safely and remove the chassis cover.
  2. Move the BIOS Configuration jumper to the Maintenance position. (Refer to the Quick Reference Guide or Product Guide for the location of this jumper.)
  3. Power on the computer and enter BIOS Setup (press F2 during boot).
  4. Go to the Advanced > USB Configuration menu.
  5. Enable the USB Function.
  6. Go to the Exit menu and select Save Custom Defaults.
  7. Save and exit the BIOS setup.
  8. Turn off the computer.
  9. Move the BIOS Configuration jumper back to the normal mode position.
  10. Power on the computer and enter the BIOS Setup again to verify that the Advanced > USB Configuration menu is now back to normal.

Integrated Lan


Turn your computer off, wait 30 seconds and turn it back on again. When the computer starts up, press the key to get into the bios setup and search for the Lan controller setting.

If it's on and its still not working, replace it with a new network card and disable the lan controller.

Disable Display ?


You need tp press F2 or Del on startup and enter the bios and look in the peripherals menu, if not there, just look for VGA or onboard graphics and select dissable, but remember there will be a line in the bios to enable the PCI or AGP card as the primary graphics controller, save settings and exit for a restart.

Bios flash


hi there,
It seems your keyboard has a electronic circuit breakdown.
Im very sure that just replacing the keyboard will solve your problem.The keyboard has a circuitry inside which send different signals depending on which key is pressed.
formating and OS reinstallation should alwaz be kept as last resort
also i would like to remind you Please do not perform a bios flash unless required.Theres a high chance of completly ruining your motherboard during this stage.
I would recomend you borrow a keyboard from a friend and try it out.
Im sure your problem will be solved.
if you are currently using ps2 port you may consider using a usb keyboard.
Hope this answers your question

may this help!
