If you are looking at Device Manager, the computer must be working to some degree. Since there are no drives on the SATA controller, you're probably using an IDE drive and don't need the SATA controller anyway. Disable it in the BIOS. And get more memory.

Update driver Phoenix FirstBios(tm) Desktop Pro Version 2.0 for IBM ThinkCentre


Log on to Lenovo.com and download the drivers and install instructions. It's pretty easy. Just DO NOT stop it once you start it. Let it run to completion. If you stop it, you will corrupt your BIOS and your system will not start. So, just let it run to completion.

As far as I understand there is no way to recover it self the dead BIOS, You can only send it to Dell Service Center and get new Bios chip.

Hi! I need help with my computer. I use a seagate ST380811AS hard disk in my desktop computer. The problem now, is that everytime I start my computer "A non system disk" appears on the monitor or...


1 Remove any floppy disks or bootable CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives or other bootable media from the computer. Attempt to restart the computer again. Proceed if you continue to receive the error.
2 Restart the computer again. Press the key required to enter your BIOS setup. (The monitor usually displays a "Press [key] to access BIOS" right after restarting your computer. Press the key shown on your screen.)
3 Navigate to the "Boot Options" or "Advanced" menu by using the arrow keys. (The precise menu terms will vary according to your computer and BIOS type.)
4 Select the hard disk that contains your operating system (usually C:) as your primary boot device. Select your CD/DVD drive, your floppy drive or another hard disk as your secondary boot device.
5 Save and exit the BIOS. Proceed with the next step if you see the "Non-system disk error" message again.
6 Restart the computer. Return to the BIOS' "Boot Options" screen by following the steps above, then set the "CD/DVD drive" as the primary boot device and the hard disk as the secondary boot device. Save and exit the BIOS.
7 Insert your Windows installation disc. Restart the computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Follow the on-screen prompts to reinstall Windows.
8 Replace your hard disk drive if you cannot install Windows.

I have an hp pavilion dv5. When I power it on the computer starts up but the monitor doesn't come on. And then it does this series of beeps. Beep beep beep. It does that series 5 times


Before you begin
Check the following items before using the steps in this document:
•If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
•Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
•If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
•Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots.
With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
Step 1: Connect the computer to another monitor
Connect another monitor to the computer to determine which device has the problem (the monitor or the computer). This step is very important to help you determine if the problem is coming from the computer or the monitor. If necessary, temporarily connect the computer to a friends monitor for troubleshooting purposes.
After the monitor is connected, turn on the computer and the monitor. What happens?
•If the newly attached monitor does not display anything , disconnect the cable and continue at Step 2: Is the video connection damaged?
•If the newly attached monitor displays the first startup screen(s) but then goes black, there is a problem with Windows starting. Skip to step 5 .
•If the new monitor works , the original monitor or its cables are faulty. Do the following:
1.Replace the monitor power cable.
1.Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
1.Replace the video cable.
Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
1.If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor.
Step 2: Is the video connection damaged?
Inspect the video cable and video connectors for damage. Check for sharp bends or breaks in the cable and bent or broken pins at the connectors. With the monitor and computer off, try to straighten bent pins with a small metal tube, like the tip of an empty mechanical pencil or the tip of a retracted pen.
Figure 1: Video connector
If you had to straighten any pins, reconnect the monitor making sure that the video cable is firmly connected and then turn on the computer and monitor. If the display is still blank, continue to the next step.
Step 3: Resetting and updating the BIOS
You can use these steps even though you will not be able to see anything on the monitor.
In case an item was changed in the BIOS, such as the primary display device setting, use the following steps to reset the BIOS back to its default configuration:
1.Turn on the computer and repeatedly press one of the following keyboard keys. Press the key about once every second for 5 seconds after turning the computer on.
◦For HP and Compaq computers that came with Windows 7 and Vista, press F10 .
◦For HP and Compaq computers that came with Windows XP, press F1 .
◦For Compaq Presario desktop computers built prior to 2002, press F10 .
1.Wait another 5 seconds.
1.Press the F5 key. This restores the default settings of the BIOS.
1.Press the Enter key. This accepts the changes.
1.Press the F10 key. This saves the changes.
1.Press the Enter key. This saves the changes and exits from the BIOS.
1.The monitor should display the first screens received from the computer (the logo screens). If not, find and download the latest BIOS update if one is available for your computer.
1.If a BIOS update was not available or the monitor is still blank, continue to the next step.

Unable to Acces BIOS on IBM Netvista 607931u w/ Phoenix ROM BIOS


When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios

Blank screen


See lets isolate the fault...As u have checked the monitor cable is fine,the monitor is fine and the video card is also fine..I believe you have tried these 3 components on another pc and it has worked fine..Rit? Now the last thing is first download the latest BIOS update (Find the current BIOS version number,Press F1 when Pc starts,on Main menu u can find BIOS number ; From ur other PC,check the Internet for BIOS or ROM updates keeping in mind the BIOS version number u have noted down ;Download and install the BIOS updates to a CD ..copy the BIOS files to the hard disk, and then restart the computer with the CD still in the drive...That should work..2ndly,I would update my video card driver from the internet using my other computer in the same way..
