    Why did you update the BIOS? (Just wondering)

  • BillW50 May 11, 2010

    It depends... some BIOS manufactures allow it and some doesn't. What is the manufacturer's name of the BIOS?

Open your case look on the motherboard find what looks like a big watch battery carefully remove the battery leave it out for about a minute and put it back in. This will clear CMOS and restore BIOS to factory settings. Hope this helps

You might have another part that has gone bad. Check the RAM and see if it gives you any problems.

There is a program call mem test that you can burn to a CD and test your memory. But if your no longer able to get to the bios:

For the first one, you need to enter BIOS and set the HDD settings. Maybe you can automatic detect it once and then the system knew where to load system from. If it can see the hard disk and reads it but no operating system found, then you may need to check the operating system on your hard disk.
For the second one, I do think it is better to upgrade to a upper level OS such as Windows 7. While you have Vista you will have better deal with Windows 7. If you do have a agreement with Microsoft to have newer OS for free in a certain period, you can get Windows 7 for free. If you don't have that agreement, you can get Upgrade version of windows 7 with a huge discount if you have Vista.
You can actually back up your data to an wim file on vista and restore all the data and settings after the upgrading. But be sure to keep a full backup of your hard disk and everything just in case.
You can enter BIOS and make sure booting from CD first. Then there is a key you need to press very early in the booting process to launch the recovery. There is also a factory default restore you can use. Did you call HP to find out what the key is and how to use factory default restoration? You can always plug the hard disk to other computer to back up the data and then restore to factory default and put the data back.

Problem with burner after removing hijacked file


It depends what HP PC you have, it should say on the front or on the labelling on the back, but most HP's do not ship with recovery (software) CD's. Instead they have an inbuilt recovery system that runs from the Hard Disk Drive and will run a non-destructive recovery by default, in other words it will restore the PC's factory shipped software without destroying your personal data. Even so, if you have an external HDD or another option it's always a good idea to backup your personal info before you run recovery. To access the recovery system on a Windows XP based HP PC you can: 1: Click either Start, then All Programs, then HP Tool, then HP System Recovery Or on some models: Start, then All Programs, then PC Help & Tools, then HP System Recovery 2: Keep pressing the F10 key from the moment you switch the PC on and following the on screen instructions. Or on a Windows Vista based HP PC: 1: Click Start, then All Programs, then Recovery Manager, then Recovery Manager again 2: Keep pressing F11 key from the moment you switch the PC on until it says "Windows is loading files..." on screen, once Recovery Manager loads click advanced options, select system recovery, select "backup your files first" and follow the on screen instructions. With some model HP's your PC will look the same as ever when you restart but with others your personal data will be in a folder within the Documents & Settings folder on your C: drive. If you need any more help message back.
