This is not something you can do. specially you don't know the machine well enough to go inside and fix it.
and, you can't reverse BIOS revision. upgrade only.
so if you installed a more updated version of BIOS. you have no other choice but to buy a new PC or go to ebay see if anybody have DV9000 BIOS or motherboard for sell. take that BIOS and install it on yours.
if you want to try to fix it yourself. you are on your own, I will not be responsible for your action.

First of all like you say you need to get hold of a good PC so you can get on the Internet. perferrablely a PC with CD burner and the software to burn with.
get on the interent adn go the vendors' web site and download the BIOS, usuall (.EXE) file. double click on the file and open it in a temperoary location on the harddrive. then burn it on to the cd. if the CD buner is capable, you might be able to burn it directly on tot he CD.

Bios update

How to Update Your BIOS

By Patrick Miller, PCWorld

  • Check your BIOS version, without restarting your PC, by using msinfo32.exe (as described in the text).187437-versioncheck_original.jpgThe easiest way to find your BIOS version is to open up the System Information app in Windows--just type msinfo32 into the search bar (for Windows 7/Vista) or the Run box (XP), and clickSystem Summary; your BIOS version should now show up on the right under your processor speed. Record your version number (and the date that appears afterwards, if applicable).

    Step 2: Check your PC/motherboard manufacturer\'s Website for BIOS updates.

    Most PC manufacturers handle BIOS updates based on your specific line and model, so head over to your manufacturer\'s support page and check its listings for your PC, because if you download and install a BIOS intended for a different model, your PC probably won\'t work (although most BIOS updaters are smart enough to notice if you try to install them on the wrong hardware). If there is a BIOS update file available, grab it--along with any documentation it comes with, because often warnings and specific instructions are contained in the Read Me docs.

    Those of you who assembled your PC yourself will need to look for BIOS updates from your motherboard manufacturer\'s Website. If you don\'t remember your motherboard\'s model number, you can look it up without opening up the case by downloading and running CPU-Z and clicking on the Mainboard tab.

    Step 3: Read the included documentation.

    Your PC\'s BIOS handles a lot of the nuts and bolts ISO Recorder for Windows XP or the version for Windows 7/Vista) to create a BIOS update CD.Other systems will have you copy a few files to your bootable disk, restart, and open up the BIOS during startup (typically by pressing a specified key for setup options), and change the boot order so your system looks for a bootable USB drive or CD before loading the OS from your hard drive.

Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS doesn't recognize CPU

Smithbrother is right...

the file you need is here:

You'll have to get yourself a BIOS flash utility. There are some simple, good boot disks for that here:

then you'll need to boot to that disk (not into Windows), and run the flash utility provided at the previous link. Once your BIOS has updated itself, you should be good to go.

This is a known issue with early BIOS revisions of your board.

Bad BIOS checksum.... CMOS bad checksum errors



Does someone already fix this problem??????

Mine is version 1 of the MB, and I don't know about vista, but it skipped on simple audio tasks, till I figured the "Smart Fan Control" was causing it. Setting it to "Disabled" in the BIOS fixed this. This lets the CPU fan run full speed at all times. Try it, it seems to be temperature related, and should either make things better or worse...
You might also see if the BIOS updates available at help you at all.

Usb 2.0 problem

If you do turn off USB 2.0, you may have two options, "Full Speed" and "HiSpeed". Make sure you use "Full Speed", as it's faster than "HiSpeed". But the real answer is that you need to install the USB driver for your motherboard. If it came with a CD, insert the CD and read the instructions on installing drivers from it; otherwise, check Asus's website under the Support/Downloads section.
