    the model # is 443694-001 if the computer do not read from the restore disc how will it be able to read from a burned bios cd and how do I make a cd and is this the same as a flash first of all I don't even know what a flash cd is it can be restoring the bios for all I know. In addition, is it better to make an usb bootable? In addition, will the computer read from the usb? In addition, what is the better the usb or cd? Keep in mind that the computer is not working I cannot download so that means I have to get on another computer.

    Please teach me how to burn onto an usb or cd the one that will get the computer working thanks for your help

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

    If it is attempting to read , there is a good chance it will work.

    There is one other method you can try.

    Purchase an external USB-Floppy drive. Download the firmware on to the Floppy. Then hook the USB- Floppy to your laptop. The Floppy drive should boot when your laptop powers up and you should be able to run the firmware update.

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!

My HP Pavillion DV9000 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


When I tried first installing windows XP on my laptop, I had the problem that I already had Windows Vista on it, but wanted to delete it and install Windows XP. Whenever I tried installing XP, it kept telling me that there was no hard drive. I searched through all the forums on this topic and finally found out that I had to change a setting in the BIOS called native SATA driver support.

My assumption is that once they changed the mainboard on your PC, the bios settings changed as well. Try searching through your BIOS, it might have a similar setting that you might need to change.

Toshiba 5005-s504 bios update


the most appropriate bios version can be found on support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support 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.

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


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)?
