Bios says not installed in bios

download the bios and follow the proceadure for the installation. copy the bios on a floppy pr usb pendrive , making sure that the pendrive is bootable, place the pendrive in the USB slot and switch on the pc, normally F9 is for boot selection, select the drive in which the pendrive is and then press enter, then select the file name and follow the onscreen commands.

Bios rom error

Well, if you can "flash it", you may use an integrated software, who loads the normal BIOS ROM/FLASH from a USB storage (MAximun a 2Gb FAT32 Pendrive), this will depend from the manufacturer. If it is an OLD motherboard, you may go to technotrash shops, buy and crappy old pc, take it BIOS ROMchip and put on the place of you bios chip, but must be the same model, and if you install wrong, something very bad will happen. You must search on the manufacturator's database and the bios creator's database, to find the right way to reprogram or replace it. Remember: on very old Pcs, the BUIOS chip is removible, the most recent PCs, uses flash memories, who can be erased easyly by help of manufacturator software, and reprogramed.

Updated bios

Can you still access the bios setup page? It could be a flash gone wrong. Flashing could have failed, or wrong flash, or other reason. You can try flashing again, but tell me step by step how the problem goes.

Compaq Presario 5102US with uWave2 motherboard just want to fdisk & reformate

If you need to install XP, you need to get into the cmos settings and in the standard settings enable your cd drive as the first boot device, save setings and exit. Put the XP cd in your drive before you boot the pc, then when on the screen you are prompted to press enter to boot from cd, it will then go through the installation process and ask if you want to format in fat32 or NTFS, the later is the norm for XP. You can delete or set up partitions and format using the cd you do not need to use fdisk as XP does not use it unless you format with a win98 cd
