HOW TO UPDATE BIOS ON DELL 1526


Go to support.dell.com. Submit the Service Tag and click on Drivers and Downloads. Make sure the Windows OS is listed correctly and then scroll down to the BIOS category. Do not run the BIOS from the web site, but instead, download them and save them to your desktop or other convenient place and run them from there. Your computer must have a good battery with at least 10% charge and also be plugged in. The BIOS update cannot be interrupted! If the update is interrupted, it WILL render your computer useless! Updating the BIOS is a good thing for your computer. You should make sure your BIOS is always current. It will make your computer run faster, too!

How to successfully flash your bios


Don't do it. Don't even think about it. 99% of all bios don't need to be flashed or updated. Unless you have a specific problem with your bios and you go into the manufacturer's website and can read about the bios updates and see your problem as one of the ones that the bios update fix, don't update your bios. It's not going to make your computer run any better, it's not going to cure all the problems you have. About half the time it just messes up your computer or can ruin it. A lot of motherboard manufacturers have come up with Windows based programs to flash the bios but if they fail then you have to go back to the old method and they usually require having a floppy disk which most computers don't come with anymore. If you're one of those people that want to play around with your computer and do a little experimenting you're must better off to go format your harddrive, wipe it clean and start all over. Then you can go find all your new driver updates, software updates, find all the files you just deleted off your computer cause you forgot to backup before you formatted it. It's a lot more fun than flashing and updating your bios because your computer will still work when you get done.

The BIOS has been erased, I do not have floppy, but i want to write the bios


In order to write a BIOS, you would have to have acess to very expensive equipment as well as be amazingly good at whatever programming language they use to write BIOS (something like Assemly or some other hardware-level language). In short, you can't do it.
See the motherboard drivers section for a listing of computer motherboard manufacturer driver and BIOS update pages or our support section for computer manufactures.
Unlike earlier computers that date before 1996, new computers have a Flash BIOS which enables users to update the BIOS chip on motherboard using a software program. These programs have the capability of correcting issues that may be occurring with your computer hardware. These issues can include, but are not limited to, the below corrections.
  • Add the capability of adding new hardware into the computer.
  • Additional options or corrections to the BIOS setup screen.
  • Correcting issues with incompatibility with hardware.
  • Update hardware capacity and capabilities.
  • Missing information or instructions.
  • Update a startup logo.
Older computers who need an update for the Year 2000 issue

Only obtain the BIOS update from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer, unless the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer is no longer in business.

Do not shut off or reboot the computer until the BIOS instructs you to do so.

Verify that the BIOS you have been instructed to use or the one that you are downloading will resolve the issue you are attempting to fix. Remember that BIOS updates will only fix hardware issues and will not fix software issues, unless that software is directly related to the hardware.

Verify the BIOS version and make sure that the BIOS update you plan on using is the next version. For example, if your BIOS is 1.0a, and the manufacturer has 1.0b, 1.0c, 1.0d, etc. You should be updating to 1.0b. If you need 1.0d, update to 1.0b, 1.0c and then 1.0d unless otherwise instructed by your computer or motherboard manufacturer.

Verify that the computer has been scanned for viruses, viruses that may reside in the write-able portion of the BIOS may cause the BIOS to abort or fail, possibly causing the computer to encounter additional issues.

If you are updating a laptop or portable computers BIOS ensure that it has AC power and is not running off the battery.

Finally, when upgrading a BIOS, it is important that your read the disclaimer and any other information or instructions included with the download. Many computer manufactures will not support a BIOS if done by the user of the computer without the instructions of a technician or company representative. If the BIOS causes any difficulty with the computer you may be held responsible.

How do I download a BIOS update without a working computer?

If you are unable to get to the Internet in order to download a BIOS update we suggest downloading and creating a BIOS diskette on a different computer. For example, a friends computer or a computer at your work.

How to update bios


To find the current BIOS version, follow the steps below:
  1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  2. Write down the BIOS revision number from the Main page. You will use this number to see if HP has a later version available.
    1. Go to the HP Software download page
    2. If you are presented with a page to enter your model number, type in your model number. For example, Pavilion p6230f or TouchSmart 600-1050uk.
    3. Select the version of Windows the computer is using.
    4. Click the BIOS link.
      • If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your computer at this time.
      • If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your computer. To do this, turn off the power to the computer, remove the side panel, and read the name printed on the motherboard. The name of the motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
      • If a BIOS update is listed, continue to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.

        Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary. For most computers with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions. For many computers before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive. The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens. If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
        1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
        2. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
        3. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        4. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
        5. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.

No update bios found for p4i45d bios 1.20


Why do you need a bios upgrade. Unless there is a specific problem you don't need to update the bios. Updating the bios and be very dangerous if you don't know much about computers. Also unless there is a specific problem with the motherboard they won't make any bios updates.

Our computer is telling us we need to update the BIOS computer shuts itself off


All BIOS components are serviceable via a firmware upgrade that is known as "flashing" this process is called "updating the BIOS". The process itself is fragile since any power fluctuation during a flash may irrevocably corrupt a BIOS' firmware. Great care will need to be taken in order to safely accomplish this.

This guide will help you flash your BIOS by taking precautions and walking you through each step. Not all computers will have the same BIOS manufacturer, let alone the same process, but many have similar steps and precautions.

CPU upgrade T2400 to T7600


Hi

The BIOS needs to be updated every few years when technology changes to accommodate the operation of new parts.
The update is normally obtained from the maker of the computer, or in the case of a non-brand computer, from the maker of the motherboard or sometimes the BIOS maker itself.
The BIOS contains all the technical information about key components of the computer like disk drives, keyboards and display settings. It also keeps track of the date and time.
In recent years some computers required BIOS updates to make them better operate with plug and play features built into Windows. BIOS updates were also required to accommodate larger hard drives.
The BIOS updates are generally downloadable from your motherboard's or computer's websites. You'll have to do some detective work to figure out what brand and model of motherboard is in the system that you have to update. If you bought your PC from a small shop, a manual for the motherboard is usually included with the system's documentation.
Once downloaded to your hard drive, run the update program and you may be prompted to create a floppy disk, which can then be used to update the BIOS.
However some newer programs will do a BIOS upodate without the need to create a floppy disk. You just the run the update and the BIOS is updated after a reboot.


Good Luck
