Reformating ASUS f3f series laptop from Bios

Hi, I have been searching for instructions on how to reformat harddrive from bios on the stated model. I know it can be done as a mate did it previously on same machine - he said it was simple task and drive rebooted in its original state. i cant get in contact with Friend today and need this task completed today. If anyone online can supply me with step by step instructions i would be very grateful.

    Your teminlogy is confusing. You can't reformat from BIOS unless your reformat definition is different from standard procedures. Tell me exactly what you want to do with no computer terms and if I can't help I can find someone who can.

Asus f5 bios download

If you don't know what you're doing flashing the bios can really screw things up. You might already be at the latest bios version, so be sure to check it.

You would get the bios driver to flash it from the manufacturer's website and follow the instructions.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "ASUS Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the BIOS drivers. There will be instructions on flashing the bios. Also check your current bios version.

My asus x83v laptop keeps giving me a big red error message, called tech support they just want me to send it in to them. On the same red error msg screen I've gotten the following messages in the left top...

For that first make sure SATA is disabled in bios. When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 to enter in bios then go to advanced and disable SATA then save settings and exit from bios. Then check if still same error then you need to repartition and reformat the harddrive with windows disk. For that boot computer with windows disk and then follow the procedure on screen then reformating the harddrive will fix this issue. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Want to updat bios for xp

Operating system doesn't have an effect on the bios update process. Simply you can go online and search for your motherboard's website for BIOS flash utility, and new bios files. And through that website, you can follow the instructed steps and update your BIOS. (For example: Asus Mainboard Model P5GD1 Pro -> Go to Asus international website and select your mainboard model, you can find the tools and updates related with your particular model there). You just have to look up for your mainboard's complete brand and model name first.

PXE-E61 Media test failure check cable my note book is asus f3f and when this massage appear i cant connect to internet.

That message is when you have your computer set to network boot. You can disable it in the bios or change the boot order to put network after hard drive. Press probably Delete when booting to get into your bios and look for Boot Order.
