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.

Vertical lines and discoloration on my sony vaio vgn a140


It is required to get the BIOS and the Video Driver Updated in the Computer to resolve the issue.

The BIOS Update and Video Driver Update are available at Sony Support Site for download.

You can view and download the BIOS Update from this link

Before installing the BIOS update, be sure the computer is running from AC power. If the installation of the BIOS is interrupted by power loss, the computer may not operate correctly or at all.

During the installation of this update:
  • Do not turn the computer off.
  • Do not allow the computer to enter Standby or Hibernation states.
  • Do not start other programs.
  • Do not connect any peripherals.
Download the AIBSYS-00772903-US.EXE file to a temporary or download directory.

Go to the directory where the file was downloaded and double-click the "AIBSYS-00772903-US.EXE" file to begin the installation.

At the "BIOS Update Utility for Microsoft® Windows® XP" box, click "Next".

At the "License Agreement" dialog, read the agreement, then, if you agree, click "I Agree" to continue with the installation.
NOTE:
Please wait while the utility extracts the necessary files for the update.

At the "VAIO BIOS Update Tool 1.0.01.10181" box, click "Update".

At the "WBFLASH" box, click "OK".
NOTE:
Please wait while the utility updates the BIOS.

At the "WBFLASH" BIOS Update successfully completed box , click "OK" to shutdown the computer.

After the computer shuts down, wait for a few seconds, and then power on the computer.
After the computer restarts, the installation of the BIOS Update is complete.

After installing the BIOS Update, it is required to Update the Video Driver to resolve the issue.

You can view and download the Video Driver Update from this link

Download the ATDVID-00610812-US.EXE file to a temporary or download directory (please note this directory for reference).

Go to the directory where the file was downloaded and double-click the ATDVID-00610812-US.EXE file to begin the installation.

Then, please follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.

After installing the Video Driver Update, please restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

Performing the above steps should fix the issue.



If the issue is not resolved, please check if the Vertical lines and discoloration are visible while accessing the BIOS Setup Utility.

To access the BIOS Window, please restart the Computer, press and hold the F2 Key to access the BIOS Setup Utility.

If the lines and discoloration are available on the BIOS Setup Utility window, the issue may be related to the LCD Screen of the Computer and you will need to get the Computer serviced to fix it.

In that case, you can contact Sony Service Center get the Computer serviced and resolve the issue.

I have a dell 1525 laptop. It works fine except feor one problem. While I type, the cursor jumps all over the place and puts letters all over my document. It did this with both Vista & now XP. It does...


This is not a virus issue since you had already tried two version of windows.

First you can try to update the BIOS on your laptop by downloading the BIOS update from http://support.dell.com

Select the support for home users.

Drivers and downloads.

Enter the service tag of your laptop. ( even laptops w/o warranties can download updates)

Just download the BIOS update via browser only ( do not select download via download manager)

Just run or install the downloaded update (make sure ac adapter is plug-in and battery is at least 10% charge)

After the update check if still getting same problem. If yes then have you keyboard and palmrest replace.

Updating BIOS


Dear Sir/Mam
This is the Paddy_solver and since you are not able to find the bios upgrade i am giving you a link from where you can download your bios update however before you would do it lemme tell you it can crash your motherboard as well i would say if your computer is working fine you better not do it if your computer administrator has said so please go for it.
Link to download :-
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/utilities.html#BIOS
when the website would open you have to look in the middle of the page where it says "BIOS UPDATE TOOLS"
NOW BEFORE YOU WOULD INSTALL OR DOWNLOAD ANYTHING PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SHOULD KNOW THE BIOS INSTALLED ON YOUR LAPTOP FOR THAT YOU HAVE TO ENTER THE BIOS EITHER BY PRESSING "DELETE KEY" OR "F2 KEY " ONCE YOU RESTART THE LAPTOP TRY IT BOTH THE KEYS ONE BY ONE IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GET TO THE BIOS.
AND ONCE YOU WOULD SEE THE BIOS IT WOULD EITHER SAY "AWARD BIOS" OR "PHOENIX BIOS" ONCE YOU KNOW WHICH BIOS YOU HAVE THEN DOWNLOAD THE FILE ACCORDINGLY.

HOPE THIS INFORMATION IS USEFUL FOR YOU IF ANY FURTHER QUREY YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT MY EMAIL IE:-
sumitfor_u@yahoo.com

Thanks and Regads
