Trouble Updating BIOS: Medion M3 Director 5100

I'm installing more RAM in my desktop. However, after I installed it, it hangs on the Pentium 4 logo. So, from the memory company's troubleshooting guide, it says perhaps I should try updating the BIOS.

So, I'm trying to update the BIOS. I downloaded and extracted the file from Medion's site, as directed, and then booted up from the CD-ROM. Medion's directions say to choose "MS-DOS" prompt from the menu and then execute the autoexec.bat file of the update.

However, when I get to the menu from the CD-ROM (that I've booted from), selecting the MS-DOS prompt isn't one of the options provided. My only options are "Restore Startup Files", "Restore Startup and System Files", "Restore Factory Settings," and "Reboot".

Is there another way to boot my system from this CD or other external media so I can access the DOS prompt to install the BIOS update?

Thank you so much!

    You can boot your computer in MS-DOS mode via floppy disk, USB memory stick or CD-ROM. Booting using floppy disk is the easiest way to do this.

    Which operating system are you using?

SOURCE: Bios Update

You first have to find out what kind of Chipset you are using. To update the bios, the PC information is not relevant: Relevant is to know the Motherboard/Chipset/Mainboard Manufacturer/Vendor.

you can find information abour your Chipset in your BIOS. Your chipset will be INTEL but the question is now: What is the the Intel Chipset Model ? You can look on the motherboard on the chips itself or on the S/N sticker that tells you the complete Chipset model number/ serial number. If you have the numbers, please state them here so that I can find a link where you can download the bios upgrade

Kind Regards,
Dominik

Reinstall Windows using the recovery cd that came with it. If you no longer have it then any Windows disk will do, just that you will have to install the drivers yourself.

I'm wanting to add ram memory. Will a Micron 2GB PC3200 DDR-400 ECC Reg ram work? Thanks! Harold


I dont think it will.
It is the right type and speed, but it says your maximum module size is 1 GB.
So you will need 2x1GB sticks for a max of 2GB

My medion radeon x740xl graphics card cant cope with new games.


Your computer has a PCI Express x16 connector. You can replace the card for less than $100; for example, a 9600GT card from NewEgg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127382

Note that card is designed for a PCI Express _2.0_ x16 connector. The card will be more capable than your computer, but will slow down to work with your computer. It's a solid card, reasonable price.

You may want to evaluate how much memory you have and consider upgrading it if you have less than, say, 1gb. Memory's cheap.
