To upgrade the bios. and i'm not sure why you would need to do this to install Vista. but go to manufactures website and look under the drivers for a biso update.

ex. if you have a Dell laptop. go to the website and load up your service tag number and look for a bios update.

if you have MSI net book do the same.

I would say with more info on the make and model of the laptop it will help with installing your Vista

Hi there
There is 2 ways to do this, firstly you can create a floppy disk with the updated bios flash file on ( not recommended to a novice ) or reinstall XP and updated the bios by downloading it from the manufacturers website and installing it that way. After that you can install Vista.

good luck

touching a bios update is a bad idea most people crashes motherboards doing that. the only thing you can try put the stock bios back but i wont like you used it before may have fail boots anyway the problem can be with ram's and HDD, you need to check them with another machine for the HDD observe the temperature if it reach above 46c then you have problem with HDD. good luck :)

My nx9600 wont boot up and gives me an error message.


Just to clarify: this is PART "Clarification Request" and PART "Solution" --

Sorry, but more information is needed before your question can be properly addressed. Please post back the exact error message it gives you, and WHEN the error message appears (for example: is it after you see the windows logo? before windows logo appears, but after the BIOS info appears? - where the error occurs in the boot process is very important to determine how to troubleshoot the issue).

You can always write down the exact error message, and do a search on the manufacturer's website, the Microsoft website (or website for whatever OS you may have installed if other than Windows), and most of all, Google - If searching Google, to narrow results to be more relevant, you can include your model number/mfg info in the search string then the error message (or error message #, if one applies).

Post back more info on your issue and error msg, and I will be glad to try and assist you further. Best of luck to you!

Windows Vista freezes while loading up& Blue Vertical Bars appear


Hi

Reflashing the bios doesn't make any difference.

Check in the BIOS Screen whether notebook scree has the same issue if it is the same then it is a hardware issue if it is fine in the bios screen then need to run the hdd and memory test

After the test result we can decide next steps

> If hdd and memory test passes - then reload the os.

To login to bios - Reboot the system and keep tap on f10

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
