You will need to contact Compaq and buy a new bios chip. Then swap it out with the one on your motherboard.

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

Laptop does not turn on after bios update


Try setting the BIOS to default, then rest the settings.

You can try to re-flash the BIOS version just before the latest version.

The Wz number you posted does not match a 655.

Read the manual carefully about how to flash the BIOS.

Look in manual for clearing CMOS, if you have it, clear CMOS, set BIOS to default, and reset, if this does not work, re-flash the next to oldest BIOS version, if you have (example) F23, then flash to F22.

Gateway 504gr bios update failed


You maybe using the wrong version, it's already updated, or simply can not be upgraded.
Unless there is a TRUE need to flash, and usually there is not, I would stay away from. So many people try and fail, only to wipe the CMOS, leaving the system useless. Here is some sound advice on the subject.

Failed BIOS update


Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address.

If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive.


Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board


CMOS battery.

The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions.

Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu.


If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced.


Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key.


Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter."


Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu.


Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer.

Then let your computer fully reboot.

The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically.


When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically.


If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.


hope this helps
