    I need to know a little more. Firstly, you obviously tried to flash the bios. Was it the correct bios for sure for your laptop? Do you have access to another computer? Are you still under warranty? Does your laptop not do a thing when you press the power button, or does at least lights come on? (if the screen comes on even better). Hold the Fn key and press the power button at the same time, what do you hear / see from the keyboard lights?

    and of course etc.? :)

It's quite possible that you may have to re-flash it using your old bios. Simply do so (if the computer turns on) the same way as the old one, otherwise, you'll have to send it end in order for them to reflash your motherboard (or as they usually do replace the motherboard.)

YOU could try to take out the laptop coin cell battery, and look for a jumper or a removable chip very near that battery (which will be the CMOS chip, the part you just fried, and the most important part of turning on a computer other than power :P ) Which would make life much easier for repairs (and much less costly). But since it is very difficult to flash a bad CMOS chip back, and because most laptops don't have jumpers, or removable CMOS chips, you'll just have to try the battery and pray. I hope it works for you, I once did that with my old presario, and only fixed it enough to get the screen working but nothing else. Good luck, hope this helped.

Stay Spicy and happy lappying :)

Asus f3j bios mod for upgraded ram


Not sure what you are asking about. Asus site says the motherboard will take DDR2 533/667MHz SDRAM, 2x SO-DIMM socket expandable to 2GB
Which means DDR2 533mhz 1 gig per slot total 2gig
or DDR2 667mhz 1 gig per slot total 2 gig

To enter BIOs press F2 at boot up, but no setting should need to be changed.

They do not have a BIOs update for increasing the memory limits.
BIOs upgrades from first to current are.
BIOS 304
Update new CPU Microcode
System plays wave file and causes garbage sound.
BIOS 305
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.
Support Intel Extend ID CPU:Merom Celeron 530 CPU.
BIOS 306
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.
BIOS 307

Dear Sirs, My note book is Acer Aspire 1360, and I am very fond of it. Last week I was doing the drvers up grading and it was comming very good. I tryed to upgrade the bios and the machine stopped, it...


The reason for this is abrupt finish of bios upgrade process.
Please check if you are able to getinto BIOS screen. If yes do 'save default configuration settings' on bios.

hope it works

PC RUN normal: the configuration BIOS STOP and message is: configuration is ok! Problem upgrade failed! use F1 for setup continue or F2 for chancer manual setting DATE/TIME.Thank you.


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Also you might try
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
hope this helps

I updated my bios , during that the sys froze up and i had to reset the laptop. after reset it shows only blank screen and it wont boot.


on rare occasion, you can download a bios upgrade bootable image.

This can be made into a disc or floppy, and run on boot.

Once the disc or floppy is run, it will begin the process of re-installing the bios.

As of right now, you have a partially upgraded bios, which means you really have no bios.

Your computer will not run because your motherboard is having a major identity crisis.

unfortunately this is not an easy fix, and may require the assistance of the laptop manufacturer.

Bad bios flash


Hopefully you save a backup copy of the bios before you did the upgrade. If you did then start the upgrade process again and select the original backup copy as the bios file to upgrade. This will put you back where you were before the upgrade.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.

Bios upgrade


You can use Winflash to upgrade the motherboard BIOS or during boot using text or character driven interface . These utilities can be downloaded free of cost from the mobo manufacturer website. BUT MIND YOU IF YOU DO NOT FEEL CONFIDENT ENOUGH OR NOT SURE OF THIS PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AS ANY ERROR IN THE PROCESS OF UPGRADING MOTHERBOARD BIOS WILL RENDER THE THE MOTHERBOARD USELESS. An 8x AGP PRO Card should work without hitches on tis mobo
