SOURCE: Bios update failed, computer will not start


Do you mean to replace the motherboard or the Bios? I assume you mean the motherboard.

I've been researching the possiblity of having a new bios chip put on the motherboard instead of the cost of a new motherboard (300+ install).

Thank you for the quick response.

SOURCE: Update BIOS E1505/6400 fails

The link below will take you to Dell's support download site for the e1505 BIOS download.

It is version A17. Download the file to your desktop and then double click on it to run it. A window will ask if you wish to upgrade the BIOS. Click yes. The system will shutdown, the BIOS will be flashed and Windows will restart.

The error that you mention above indicates that the file did not download properly for you before.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

SOURCE: DELL LATITUDE D600 fails to boot up


Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Not sure if it's a sure fix or not, but it worked for me.

I have a Dell Latitude c640 and when powering up, the caps LED would blink roughly 10 times, things would spin up, but after the 10 or so blinks, it would power down without anything having been displayed. This happened just after I had the laptop going on batteries, and it went into hibernate mode automatically after the batteries got low. When I plugged back up to a power supply and turned on, the computer started to exhibit this problem.

All I did was removed the bottom panel, removed both memory modules, put the memory modules back in the slot, rocked them at least 7 times before locking them back in to place to ensure a good seat, and completly seated them (clicks into place), closed up the panel, and powered up.

After doing this, the system booted up normally.

Just as a bynote , Faulty RAM, damaged motherboard affecting the RAM (ie cracked RAM slot where it was maybe forced in with a bit too much pressure) and lastly cooking the chip although this is a lot more rare.
Easiest way to check is get another laptop and swap YOUR RAM INTO IT if it affects that laptop then RAM, riskier is to switch ITS RAM into yours, still does it - generally MoBo.
there are also other problems that cause these errors, but in my experience these are the most common
Good luck!

How to recover from failed bios update attempt.

You need to hope that you haven't "Bricked" your motherboard. If the update has failed then you may need to replace either your BIOS chip(if you can find the exact match for your board), attempt to reflash the bios again or replace the motherboard.

Gateway 504gr bios update failed

You maybe using the wrong version, it's already updated, or simply can not be upgraded.
Unless there is a TRUE need to flash, and usually there is not, I would stay away from. So many people try and fail, only to wipe the CMOS, leaving the system useless. Here is some sound advice on the subject.

BIOS Update

You didn't state what the operating system is, your brand and model of BIOS or what the problem is you are trying to correct. You should state exactly what the problem is you are experiencing and why you think a BIOS update is likely the answer. Having said that, BIOS updates are usually a simple process, download the update and boot to the USB flash drive, CD/DVD or floppy containing the update. Follow the mfg's instructions exactly. If you are given an opportunity to back up your current BIOS, you should do so.

Even though this is relatively simple, it shouldn't be attempted by anyone not familiar with this type of process. A failed BIOS update can very easily render the computer totally useless until a new BIOS chip is installed, even if that is an option. Given the way your question is worded, I'd hazard a guess that you should have a qualified technician do this for you.

My brother tried to do a BIOS update. I dont know but something probably went wrong during the process and now, all my computer does is power on, no display, it wont even show the POST screen..

Firstly, BIOS updates are precarious at best (especially for older computers and is not a decision to be taken lightly. They are rarely worth the risk.
Here is are some links that "MAY" help you recover from "failed BIOS updates or flashes".
Flashing or attempting to recover your BIOS should be done by a professional. I do not urge or endorse the use of these techniques, have no affiliation with the writer(s), and cannot be held accountable for failure. Again...this should be done professionally!!
That being said, I wish you success either way. You may have to copy and paste or type the first one.

Good luck. Hope this helps you.

Netbook fails to boot up. Black screen after samsung logo.

I had the same problem today - Samsung updated some of its software last night, then this morning the netbook couldn't boot.

I entered the BIOS - press F2 - and told the BIOS to reset back to its default settings. This fixed it. I guess the update screwed up the BIOS somehow.

Is there a way to repair a bios after a failed update

Recovering a damaged BIOS is simply a matter of replacing the missing or damaged code contained within the CMOS or EEPROM. This is not an easy task and some computer knowledge is strongly advised if attempting this.

You can solve the problem by removing the Lithium battery on the main board, wait a few minutes, then put the battery back in and reboot.
The BIOS will detect that there are no BIOS settings, and use some default settings. NOTE...It will tell you that some settings are erratic, but at least you are now able to press DEL to enter BIOS setup.

After entering setup you will be asked to choose either "Load default fail safe" or "Load optimal settings". The latter will work most of the time. Save these settings, reboot and see whether your attempts were successful. I've seen this type of boot failure on many machines and in case of bios update failure, this has worked 90% of the time.
If, by chance it does not work at once, try to keep the battery out a little longer, and short-circuit the + and - pins of the battery socket.

When you do get some life back into your PC don't forget to check that you indeed flashed the correct BIOS version that belongs to your motherboard. Maybe you flashed just a slightly different version. If so, find the correct BIOS version even if your PC seems to work after following the above steps, find the correct BIOS version and reflash.

Won't power up

Thats what happened to me when my new RAM sticks weren't the type that my motherboard supports. Take your newley inserted ram stick out if you've put in any. I experienced that again when my bios failed to update. If you did try to update the bios of the motherboard and failed, contact the HP costomer support about how to fix it. If you've manually changed to bios for whatever reason, reset it back to the original state by changing the CMOS jumper position. To do that, refer to your computer's manual. ☺
