SOURCE: Bios update failed, computer will not start

Pankaj_dic,

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.

Sounds like the person might be clearing the cache after they are done using the internet. Documents and settings is in your c drive. Just right click on the start button and choose explore. Try doing a search for all files and folders, then go to advanced search options and check the box that says all hidden files and folders. Hope this helps. Plese feel free to leave feedback for your answered question. Thanks

Yes, I also get similar problems with my Vista. For some reason, once in a while the updates does not install properly. And Microsoft give an error number without any description. If you hit "get hel with this error" still you will not get a good expalnation. Currently there is no solution to it.
However, it is totally harmless. In future updates this error will go away. Nothing to worry about it.

Internet shuts it self off


Whereas Internet Explorer is a very popular browser, you may have problems with it from time to time. Internet Explorer has been known to either randomly shut down or close pages. This can be extremely irritating, especially if you are in the middle of a project. Use these tips to fix Internet Explorer if it keeps closing Web pages.

Start by deleting your browsing history. Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab found in the top right corner of the Web browser. Then, choose the "Delete Browsing History" option. A box will appear on the computer screen. Make sure that there are checkmarks next to each option listed in the box. Click the "Delete" tab to delete the browsing history. Move to the next step if Internet Explorer keeps closing pages. Download, install and then run both an anti-malware and an anti-virus software program. http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4281&file=1&evp=dbb3b0aebe6a6a4ff18089a6489a5e62 anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7 http://www.majorgeeks.com/Microsoft_Security_Essentials_for_Windows_d6242.html microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered Spyware, adware, viruses and other similar infections can cause Internet Explorer to shut down or close pages. Deleting your browsing history may not take care of these problems. Spybot and AVG Anti-Virus are two very useful free programs that will search for and remove harmful infections from your computer. http://spybot-search-destroy.soft32.com/ Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules. Try resetting the Internet Explorer settings. Open Internet Explorer and then click "Tools." Choose "Internet Options." Click the "Advanced" tab. Then, click "Reset" found at the bottom of the box. A second box will appear on the screen. Click the "Delete personal settings" option and then click "Reset." You will need to restart Internet Explorer to finish the process. Go to the next step if Internet Explorer continues to close pages. Run Windows Update. Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab in the top right corner of the Web browser. Select the "Windows Update" option. You will be taken to the Windows Update Web page. Click the "Express" tab on that age. Windows Update will then check for any updates. Click the "Install Updates" tab to install any of the recommended updates. Hope this helps.

When clicking on the star, the history shows up but..


My Computer > C:\ (System Volume, Boot Volume, Windows) > The Documents and Settings folder > User Name Folder > Local Settings Folder > History.


If the Local Settings Folder is not visible in the UserName Folder you have to enable show hidden files:

While at the folder goto Menu at top Tools > Folder Options > View > Select the radio button for "Show Hidden Files"

If the user is using Firefox, then may have already selected not to save the browsing history, without advanced tools this information is not accessible.

If the user is using Internet Explorer, History will display unless they have selected to save the files for a period of "0" days, newer versions may even have the ability to not save at all.

Check the History folder to be certain.

Good luck.
