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.

Hello, Please Help :-( I've replaced a broken monitor on Acer asprie 5570Z I would like to use it again BUT. the BIOS & Windows Vista Ultimate OS have passwords. I remember the BIOS password but not...

Download, burn to CD and then boot Hiren's Boot CD to change the password of any account on a Windows PC to one of your choosing. If you don't have a CD - you can put this on a USB flash drive instead - but you'll need to ba able to boot from USB. This is a free download and there is nothing to buy.

I *know* this will help - good luck! Please rate my reply, thanks!

Your system has a hidden partition with Vista and all your drivers on it, you need to decide wether to keep this partition in tact (incase you want to install Vista again) or to delete it and use the whole drives available space making it one partition instead of two.
ONLY delete the recovery partition if you have a copy of windows XP that you OWN. otherwise if you have problems again, you will have to find a disk again.
You will need a copy of windows xp, set the bios to boot to the cd/dvd rom in the BIOS and boot the system with the xp disk, do a full install first delete any partitions (unless you save the hidden partition, then just delete the large partion)
Repartition the empty space , then format the drive, which you will be prompted to do after partitioning, then the cd will install windows. follow the prompts.
Once finished , go here
and download the 5 XP drivers for your system, install the chipset andcpu driver , then proceed to the NIC, audio and video.
You will then need to install any programs you had installed before. keep in mind a vista version of software may not operate correctly on XP. windows xp is about 130 dollars for the disk , but you can find copys on ebay for around 90.
poast again if you need more help

Reinstall my vista

If you want to completely start from scratch and erase all of you files to reinstall windows, here is what you have to do. You need to "boot" from the Vista CD. To do this, you will need to insert the Vista CD and then restart the PC. After it shuts down and starts to start again, will need to press the button that says "boot options" or you will need to press something along the lines of F1 (it depends on your computer type) Pressing F1 will take you to bios. From there you will need to find "boot options" or "boot priority." Set the CD drive to be on top so it boots from the CD first, before the hard drive. Then save and exit bios. This should restart your computer. After that, continue with your normal boot up until is says "press any button to boot from CD." Press any button you want to. You should be able to follow the on screen directions for installing Vista there. Hope this helps!

Wrong bios

The # 443694-001 refers to the cd set. You need to know which DV9000 you have. On this link you will see all the DV9000 models.:

You will need to use a friend's computer for the following.

Once you find the correct firmware, You can make a bootable CD by using Nero or Roxio burning software,these are the most common on computers nowaday.Once you make the bootable CD, you will have to set your laptop to boot from the CDROM. Then boot the CD you made and run the firmware update.
I don't believe you would be able to get a USB flash drive to boot in this condition.
Good Luck
You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.

Toshiba 5005-s504 bios update

the most appropriate bios version can be found on for US model or for Canadian model. If the install from windows wont run, i think your os is a 64 bit windows vista. If you do have a 64 bit vista, try this solution. Downgrade to XP then update the bios. it will do work. Then reinstall again the OS 64 bit vista. Its quite bit long but it will eliminate the use of cd or floppy disk.

Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
