How to update bios? what is the latest firmware?


Be careful with these on-line updates, because after restart you'll get a black screen. Try to discover what exactly you have inside, board name, revisions .... Than ask HP what to do?

I have a ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 motherboard. When I went into the BIOS, the only thing I see is the clock in the upper left hand corner. If I move the cursor the screen will ,one very big pixel at a time,...


I would definitely update the BIOS on your ASUS PC from the Windows Operating System.

Perhaps updating the BIOS will fix your current issues on the currently-installed BIOS.

You can find the BIOS updates on this site:

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.

How do I update computer bios


Hiyou do not need to update the bios of your computer (systemax desktop pc ) because the current version of your bios is still up to date. If you are having a problem and you want your computer bios default all you need to do is to remove the cmos battery for 1 minute just to be sure because the standard wait time is only 30 sec. put it back after 1 minute. automatically the bios will be back to default settings

I dont think you need any update for bios ..cause on this machine you will never be able to run with success nothing but windows xp ....The point for upgrading bios is only if you want to make it support other kinda ram memory or so ..but the operation itself is dangerous for the board.and I sow many clients that fried it ..or damaged it beyond recover trying to do this ..The Bios update it is just a urban legend ...and I don't see why you will want it ..unless you have some kinda device that is not compatible or so ..but before trying anyway ..think if it is worth to take the risk ..
if this was an asus it was kinda easier cause they have a way to flash bios directly ..but so ...
Anyway you will hear more opinions on this..but like I said ..updating bios will not make it any faster or so ..it probably be able to support other kinda ram memory speeds ..but probably same max allowed ..so ...unless you want to do something with it ..I dont see the point ..
I repeat ...chances for one that does this the first time to crash it are very high ..
it will never boot if you install teh wrong bios on it ..and some times you will never find its original one again to load cause is too old..

DONT UPDATE BIOS OR FOR THAT MATTER ANY FIRMWARE ON ANY HARDWARES NEEDS NO UPDATING....THEY ARE MFD TO WORK THAT WAY....THEY SHOULD REMAIN THAT WAY

DONT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF BEING ADVISED BY ANY WEBSITE THAT TELLS YOU TO UPDATE FIRMWARE / BIOS....IT'S ALL USELESS

Gateway DX4720 BIOS update


Your bios updates are here, If you are trying to overclock I do not believe that this can be accomplished with this particular board though.

Desktop hp Product Number P6402A


Step 1: Find the current BIOS version number
  1. Turn ON your pc. When the first screen appears, press F1 to enter the BIOS Setup. On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.
  2. The BIOS revision number is listed on the Main menu. Write down the current BIOS version that is listed.
  3. To exit the BIOS setup screen, press F10 , select Yes , and then press the Enter key.

Step 2: Check the Drivers and Downloads page for BIOS or ROM updates

  1. Go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareRedirector?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=67009&docname=c00007682 enter the model of the PC (for example, Presario 5002US or Pavilion a518d), and click the download button.
  2. Click the link for the PC Operating System (like Windows XP).
  3. Try to find the BIOS update listed under the heading, BIOS , BIOS- System , or RomPaq.
    NOTE: The term "Rompaq" refers to BIOS updates for Compaq Presario PCs prior to 2002.
  • If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your PC at this time.
  • If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your PC. This can be done by turning off the power to the PC, removing the side panel, and reading the name that is printed on the motherboard. The name of your motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
  • If a BIOS update is listed, proceed to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.
Step 3: Download and install the BIOS update

  1. Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary.
  • For most PCs with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • For many PCs before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive.
  • The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens.
  1. If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
  2. Restart the PC and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  3. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
  4. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
  5. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
  6. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
    When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.
Please rate this solution. Thank you.
