Do not update Lenovo E430 bios to V2.54


Updating Lenovo Edge E430 could destroy your motherboard and cost you $450. Latest bios update is V2.54 and will update but leave you with a non bootable computer with no access to setup. Do not ever remove the power cord, battery, and bios backup coin cell battery at the same time. Result is Instant destruction of your system board. Update of bios up to V1.18 is okay but I would not activate the UEFI bios. Read all update directions carefully to understand procedure. Windows 7 and Windows 8 have different procedures.

My laptop is not starting or boot


BIOS updates have gotten much less risky over time, but things can still go wrong. You need to get your system model number and check the SONY website to ensure that you did in fact install the correct BIOS. This is the most common problem when the BIOS update seems to work, but reboot fails. Some BIOS updates are restricted to certain countries and/or certain sub-models. You may find a procedure that will let you reload the original BIOS and get control of the machine back. If not, you may have what we refer to a "bricked" machine. You can probably send it back for repairs, but they are usually too costly to consider. It may be too late to say this, but I learned a long time ago a good set of rules about BIOS updates:

  1. BIOS updates will not fix hardware problems that pop up - if the old BIOS was working before, the new version won't make things right.
  2. BIOS updates should only be considered if you are upgrading hardware (and in some cases software) and find that the original BIOS does not support it. Ensure that the new one DOES support it before updating.
  3. The golden rule of BIOS updating is.....if the machine ain't broke....don't fix it. A perfectly functional machine will not function more perfectly with different code. The risk isn't worth the some unknown potential benefit.

MSI MS-7060 ver 1 bios update


As old as this mainboard is, there would seem to be very little to be gained with a BIOS update. It will not provide any appreciable ability to upgrade components, and if you have used this board for any length of time successfully, updating the BIOS is questionable. Many people think that BIOS upgrades will solve all problems with the board....in most cases it only serves to fix bugs in the current BIOS, allow for a few later-models of the CPUs that are already approved for use, and upgrade firmware for the on-board amenities. Realistically, the only time a mainboard BIOS update is warranted is at purchase if there is reason to install the update to provide better performance. The risks of BIOS upgrade often outweigh the benefits; many of us are steadfast in the belief that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Bios update for windows 7 {sp27726}


You should be able to restore it to an earlier time before you added the Bios update. I've read so many problems after bios updates, that I don't install mine when I get a notification of one available.

Dear Friends i have used in gigabyte mother board model no:GA-G41M-ES2L the problem is how i update my bios now is currently used in old version 1.0 but i have to update my bios pls tell me and solve...


you need to flash the bios .

download the new bios from gigabyte website and follow their instructions on how to update bios. be very carefull when doing this because if done incorrectly it would render your motherboard useless permanently .

in my experience if your m/b is working its best not to update the bios only time i would update the bios would be if the new bios update has new features that i really needed . if not i would not really flash the bios .

Windows vista has does not response when i install it , and i find the problem that the bios software is out of date so i will work to update the bios but i cant know how can i update the bios can you help...


Hi,
To explain how to update the bios, would be very difficult, as it is a strict method to complete.
And would be a very lengthy conversation.

below is a link to the procedures for you

(WARNNG) you must get it right first time.
Flashing the Bios is not difficult, it must be right.

http://www.wikihow.com/Update-Your-Computer's-BIOS

Take your time, soak up the method's and procedures, practice the procedures in the steps,

Go for the BIOS update, only when you are confident that you have understood all the topics involved.
You will need a working, online Pc system,
so you can download and get the updates.

Hope this helps
Regards.
Richard.

My problem is that i have updated the driver of my graphic card Geforce4 MX440 SE AGP8x 64MB after driver updation my card lost it's 32MB memory and it shows 32MB memory only in bios in dxdiag everywhere...


once you update the drivers it changes right after you hit the enter key, all prevouise information is written over and it updates the bios. unless you have at one time made a backup copy of your bios than you would have that information.
