    And you have a new battery?  You can purchase new BIOS chips and change out the chip itself.

Hello

Please make sure that you change the onboard battery as it is the problem for making your bios lose the time. Also note that later on it might lose other settings such as hard drive settings etc.

To change your battery

1. Please refer to the manufacturer's manual of the motherboard ... you can download a pdf version of the manual from the website of the motherboard.

2. Locate the battery and make sure it's powered off and the power chord is out of the Power supply.

3. Remove the battery using a delicate plastic lever of the size of a tiny screw driver. I said plastic so you don't short circuit anything in the process.

4. Do not touch anywhere on the motherboard with your bare hand due to static electricity.

5. replace the battery with new one

6. Go to CMOS and change settings and save them

Hope this fixya was of help to you :)

My bios setup language is change. so how to change english language?


Most BIOS versions included a language option


Get the computer manufacturer and your computer model number.

If it is available, go to the manufacturer site and look for BIOS & Firmware upgrades.



Most BIOS versions included a language option

When your PC is starting up, press the Setup key. This is usually Del, F2, or F12.

The key, however differs with each machine.

It should be stated on the screen for a very short time which key is the setup key

you can change the bios settings by using the ARROW KEYS select it press enter and exit then press the F10 key to save to cmos and restart

if your not sure or you have made any wrong bios changes you can set failsafe or optimised defaults


if you are unable to change the bios language settings the bios might need to be updated or bios chip might need to be changed or flashed


Before flashing the BIOS do a search on BIOS flash and read the caveats.

Backup your current BIOS and only flash if it is absolutely necessary!!


If the computer vendor is unknown or unavailable, try to identify the motherboard vendor and model number if you can, BIOS updates are specifically associated with motherboard versions:



you can change the language settings

click start control panel regional and language options select regional language options from the drop down list select the language you want also from the bottom drop up list you can select your present location location or another language


hope this helps

I have using msi k8mm-v ms-7142 ver:1 motherboard with amd sampron 2500+processor its audio driver is not working i download and install ac97 audio from msi site but it is asking to enable bios audio...


You have to double check the cmos or bios settings which the audio are enabled mostly on integrated peripherals inside of you bios! Tap DEL key to enter bios setup.If the audio settings are enabled other solution is to upgrade your bios firmware. You can actually download the update from MSI official website. But be careful while updating your bios firmware, be sure to download the exact model of the motherboard and you must have back up battery or UPS while performing flashing your cmos because if interrupted while flashing causes of fluctuation your motherboard will be dead set.Always remember to back up your cmos before flashing it. After flashing your cmos, install again you downloaded audio driver. The audio driver must be compatible with your operating system in order to install the driver. Hope this works for you!

My pc doesn't want to boot up. this happend after i updated my bios. what might be the priblem & what's the solution?


> this happened after I updated [the] BIOS

After the 'flashing', did you enter BIOS SETUP, and then use 'Load BIOS Defaults' ?

After that, did you use 'AUTO DETECT DISK DRIVES' ?
If so, were your disk-drive and your CD-drive detected properly?

Hopefully, you updated with the correct BIOS that is specific to exactly your motherboard.

Some motherboards have the capability to 'flash' the BIOS even when a recent BIOS-update did not fully complete -- check the manual that came with the motherboard for the exact key-sequence to activate this 'emergency' BIOS-update.

If you can remove the BIOS chip from the motherboard, and you have your own EEPROM 'writer', you can update the chip while it's mounted on this EEPROM 'writer', and then re-install the BIOS chip onto the motherboard.

Hello, I have updated BIOS of Intel 845 GVSR board. But after the successful update USB is not displayed in BIOS hence no USB device is getting recognized. Please help.


Had exactly the same problem. This process fixed it for me:

http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/tech_reference/box_processors/int_inst_info/factory_notes_all/203939.htm

  1. Shut down the computer safely and remove the chassis cover.
  2. Move the BIOS Configuration jumper to the Maintenance position. (Refer to the Quick Reference Guide or Product Guide for the location of this jumper.)
  3. Power on the computer and enter BIOS Setup (press F2 during boot).
  4. Go to the Advanced > USB Configuration menu.
  5. Enable the USB Function.
  6. Go to the Exit menu and select Save Custom Defaults.
  7. Save and exit the BIOS setup.
  8. Turn off the computer.
  9. Move the BIOS Configuration jumper back to the normal mode position.
  10. Power on the computer and enter the BIOS Setup again to verify that the Advanced > USB Configuration menu is now back to normal.

I accidentally updated my bios and can't get windows to boot. All I get is a solid dash in the upper left corner and Can't do anything but manually power down.. How can I get the default bios back


sounds like you may have installed the wrong bios. Did you keep a backup copy of the old 1. You should have been prompted to save a copy.
Second thing is to report exactly what was said in an error message..."something/something" really does not cut it.
Lastly it maybe that your mobo just fried itself.One should not just go to doing a bios flash unless absolutely neccesary.
You might try to restart and enter the bios again and click on the install default tab and see if it will restore the default settings. You may have to reset the date/time settings. then save and exit. If the cpu fan does not remain running shut down immediately and try placing a house fan to blowing directly into the pc and try to reboot again. If the cpu fan shuts down again then you probably blew the mobo

I did BIOS flash update on my ASUS P5WD2 Premium motherboard. The reason was to fix boot message: “CPU load error. Press f1 to continue” I have two questions: 1) immediately after...


Install the BIOS Flash update, one by one. Like for example 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0.
And if still the problem consist. I think its not your BIOS problem.
Clear the BIOS by disable the JUMPER Setting.
And one last thing change the LITHIUM BATTERY(CR2032) a new one.

If you got the problem again, put a comment so that we can easy understand what is the problem with your MB.

If i am helpful, please rate me.
Thank you very much.

6U214 Motherboard Failure??


1. try clearing your bios setup using the jumper provided on your motherboard. make sure that the computer is shutdown and power cable unplugged before doing this. make the jumper settings and wait for 3 to 5 minutes before returning the jumper settings back to its normal position.to locate the bios clear jumper; it's always near the cmos battery of the mainboard. after doing so, plug back your power cable and power "on" your computer. select bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

or

2. or try flashing your motherboard again using the latest bios file available for your board downloaded from dell website. and select to bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

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.

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios?


Of course floppy is the easiest but if you configure a flash drive with flash drive utilities to be bootable, and the BIOS will support it you can flash from the USB flash drive.
