Question about Medion M3 Director 5100 PC Desktop
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!

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
