Can I change my BIOS for another type?

I've got Pheonix V4.0 / 6.0 and it's driven me nuts trying to sort out a boot-up hang and inability to resolve floppy options problem (I've no floppy drive but BIOS seems to think I have and even tho' I disabled all floppy options including controller the system still hangs at boot-up with "Press F1 to continue or press F2 to enter setup", and when it is booted into o/s XP finds a new device (floppy controller) and installs it, but the installation isn't good (floppy is disabled in BIOS remember) and so shows in device manager as "having problems".

I wonder if I can replace this cruddy BIOS with AWARD or something else that might work?

Mobo is Intel Seattle SE440BX.
CPU Type Intel Pentium II, 350 MHz (3.5 x 100)
System BIOS Date 10/05/98

SOURCE: Problems with the default settings

I don't know that particular thin client workstation but from the sound of it. it's very similar to others I have worked with. I suspect that some configuration data has got corrupted. There is normally a way to reset the terminal to the factory default - I would suggest you try that & then set it up again. It's a nuisance but I often used to find that was the only way to deal with this kind of problem. To reset it this way: There is often a small button on the back of the device which you keep pressed in whilst powering it on; if not you'll need to check the manual.

My Fujitsu AMILO M3438G will not startup. I,ve changed the cmos battery but it still says that the bios is wrong. I've tried pressing the F2 key but then the monitor displays a "wait" page...


The lines on the screen point to a failing graphics chip, faulty VGA lead or more probably, the screen itself beginning to fail.
The bios problem is most likely due to a damaged bios chip, this is usually caused by attempting to upgrade the bios by flashing and the flash process going wrong, resulting in a series of instructions on the bios chip being incorrect. Changing the Cmos battery will have no effect.

You need to reflash the bios with a stable version, this can be done via floppy drive or USB stick, but you will need to obtain a usb floppy drive (I THINK the bios on the laptop supports this). On the floppy drive, you will need to install a windows 98 type boot disc
http://www.bootdisk.com/

and obtain the bios and flash file for this laptop
http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/downloads.html ( dos version)

On another computer, copy both to separate floppies, boot to the floppy drive, let it load the OS then swap floppies and load the bios flash from floppy

I believe that you can also get the ISO (cd image) which, as long as the laptop can read the cd drive, will be a better option.

If you cannot even get the bios to recognise the floppy or cd, then the problem will need a replacement bios chip installing to sort it out

I changed my os from windows xp to windows 7...and i am using amd sempron (tm) processor 3400+ 1.80ghz..and 40 g hard disk..then the windows start up wont start normally. pls help!


Try hitting F8 just after your bios splash screen, before it would show the windows logo.
Select, boot in safe mode with networking.
Once you are in windows 7 safe mode, you can install any required drivers. This might prevent it from hanging on the next normal boot.

You can type in the run dialog CMD. This will open a command terminal. Type "SFC /scannow" without the quotes. This will tell windows to verify it's files. Let it complete, then reboot normally. Hopefully the problem will be resolved!

When booting, the system hangs at Windows XP logo. It does the same when booting (or trying to boot) into safe mode. What could be the problem and how do I resolve it? I tried to use the Windows XP CD to...


You can access the BIOS usually by pressing "esc", "F1", "F8", or "F12". One of those buttons

should work.

As for the hang up at the logo, it sounds like your hard drive might have crashed. The same thing

happened to me on my Vaio.

Having a blue screen issue, boots to windows splash screen, then gives blue stop:0x0000007E error with various (0xc0000005,etc) variations after it. have tried to boot with a floppy, no go. will not let me...


Hello,
Have you tried to boot in Safe mode? Well if not then press F8 as the PC starts and select safe mode. If it works, then select the 'system restore' option which will appear and restore the system to as far back as it worked very well. Your files will be intact. Well if safe mode those not work, then since you cannot change your boot order to boot from CD/DVD, then you would have to take out your hard drive and connect it to another PC and follow this tip of mine: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3766678-booting_bootable_windows_cd_dvd_fresh

All the best.

Booting Problems When Western Dig. USB Hard drive is Connected


Your laptop will be set to "boot from USB first" in the BIOS. Go into the BIOS (F2, F10 or DEL key as stated on startup) and look for the boot order options.
Change it to boot from the internal hard disk first and all will be sorted.

Frezes at verifying DMI settings. Already changed MB and Power supply. Lan connection only flashes green once in a while should be constant. Tried on a working terminal and does the same.


The Desktop Management Interface (DMI) is a new
method of managing computers in an enterprise. The
main component of DMI is the Management Information
Format Database, or MIFD (the DMI Pool Data). This
database contains all the information about the
computing system and its components.
At times, some systems may experience hang
conditions after partitioning, formatting and initial
bootup of a hard drive. The message, "Verifying DMI
Pool Data" appears and the system hangs. This
condition may continue after the drive has been
removed.
! WARNING ! ALL SUGGESTIONS LISTED IN THIS
INFORMATION BULLETIN ARE BIOS RELATED. FOR
A PERMANENT SOLUTION, MAXTOR RECOMMENDS
THAT USERS CONSULT THEIR SYSTEM OR
MOTHERBOARD MANUFACTURER FOR BIOS
UPGRADES.
Suggestions to Resolve the Condition:
1.Apply power to the computer. 
2.Access the system BIOS. 
Set the drive type as None or Not Installed. 
Load BIOS Defaults 
Load SETUP Defaults 
3.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a
System Boot Diskette. 
4.Shut down the PC after the memory count is
displayed. 
5.Reconnect the power and interface cables to the
hard drive. 
6.Access the System BIOS. 
7.Auto-Detect the hard drive. Ensure that the LBA
Mode option is enabled. 
8.Save the BIOS changes and boot the PC with a
System Diskette. 
9.Partition and format the hard drive via the
operating system. 
10.Reboot the system. On bootup, the screen should
read: 
Verifying DMI Pool Data
Update Successful
The system should continue booting normally.
Other Possible Solutions:
1.Apply power to the computer. 
2.Access the System BIOS. 
3.Disable both the Internal and External CPU Cache.
These features are located in either the "BIOS
Features" or "Advanced Settings" options of the
BIOS Setup.
NOTE: Consult the System or Motherboard User's
Manual for exact location of the Internal and
External CPU Cache settings. 
4.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a
System Boot Diskette. On bootup, the screen
should read: 
Verifying DMI Pool Data
Update Successful
The system should continue booting normally.
5.After the system successfully boots, re-start the
PC and access the system BIOS. 
6.Enable the External CPU Cache. This feature is
located in the "BIOS Features" or "Advanced
Settings".
NOTE: Consult the System or Motherboard User's
Manual for exact location of the External CPU
Cache setting.
! WARNING ! User's MUST re-enable this feature
for optimal system performance. 
7.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a
System Boot Diskette. On bootup, the screen
should read: 
Verifying DMI Pool Data
Update Successful
The system should continue booting normally.
NOTE: If the aforementioned suggestions fail to
resolve the issue, contact the system or motherboard
manufacturer to:
Remove the "Clear CMOS" Jumper and reset the
system BIOS 
Obtain a Flash BIOS Upgrade

from pc help;
SYSTEM HANGS AT MESSAGE: "VERIFYING DMA POOL DATA":
You did not say what operating system you are running but I assume Windows 95 or 98. It is possible some Windows
system files are corrupted or perhaps the system doesn't like your ram (if you added or installed ram recently). There
is also a possibility that there is something wrong with your BIOS and you *may* have to update it, but I would avoid
doing that if at all possible.
A quick fix - if the problem is software related - is to:
1. boot to a Windows startup disk (one that matches your operating system). this step assumes that your PC is setup
to boot to the A: drive before the C: drive (via the BIOS SETUP program). If you don't have a Windows startup disk,
you will have to make one on another person's computer that has the same version of Windows. You make one via:
my_computer/control_panel/add_remove_programs/startup_disk
2. run "scandisk c:" to make sure that any file corruption is fixed before going to next step
3. do a "sys c:" from the "a:" prompt to transfer a good copy of Windows system files to c: drive
4. remove the boot floppy, reboot the system and see if all is well.
If that does not solve the problem you may have to reinstall Windows 95/98. Ouch!
I recently had someone bring me a computer that had this DMI error message problem and I tried the "sys c:" method
(with the startup disk) without success and had to entirely reinstall windows 95 (and almost all applications except for
some programs that did not need to be placed in any Program Files directory or other special location) to cure the
problem. However nasty a job that is, it did cure the problem.
