Bios update killed my machine

Hi again, i posted this in the middle of the night and got immediate help, but sadly it hasnt sorted the prooblem out, any further ideas please? Hi, I downloaded the bios update for the nc6120 direct from the hp website, ran the update and i got the blue screen of death. it is a stop screen apparently, that says try to disable to bios shadowing or cacheing??
i can get no further than that i'm afraid. have i killed it or is there life after Mike?

Hope you can help,
Comment posted on Jan 24, 2009 Tried F8 and got into the set up, there is no Shadowing or chacheing that I can disable. I have also tried to reinstall windows to overwrite the problems but that wont even launch into safe mode

You disable shadow and caching in bios at boot ...
at startup you need to hit f10 (modeels may vary)to enter setup(bios)
in bios make required changes save and exit.

Some laptops/computers allow you to revert back to the previous BIOS frimware version (ie undo).
Don't know if this is supported on your laptop.

Acer aspire 5570 AWXMi not booting after downloading something and gives blue screen and restarts some error called TRAP-000006 maybe some more zeros no recovery disc in hand help!!!!

As the computer restarts hit F8 and boot into safe mode, if you can get the machine into safe mode then perform a system restore as i expect an update for a driver is conflicting.
Take the machine back to a date before this happened. If the restore was successful and you may think that Microsoft Update was responsible for the system crash it would be a good idea to disable your automatic updates altogether.
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.

Good luck.

Acer Aspire 4315 BIOS Recovery

Hi there.
After using killcmos you should have updated the bios straight away, this is because you have wiped all the bios settings. As soon as you restarted the laptop you effectively killed the computer, getting it recovered can now prove near impossible. The only option you have left now is to locate the bios battery, remove it for an hour to see if the bios resets, other than that Acer may be able to help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Bios shutdown

Mike:   Look in your manual to see how to get to the BIOS setup screen. Find the BIOS shadowing or catching and shut it off.    If you need a manual download it. If you cannot get it going again, doing that . Try using the reload CD's. If you don't have one ,again look in the book and see if it is on the hard drive or wher.e If you need additional help, just ask.〈=en&cc=us

Strange snowy specks on Screen

If you have a known brand name video adapter, you can attempt to update from their site rather then the Toshiba Site, but I cannot guarantee that it will work since laptop graphics chips have custom drivers made that will not work with generic drivers

Check the brushes in the motor. They've probably worn down and need replacing.
