Samsung n150+ bios is corrupt , how do i flash the bios out of windows as i am unable to load windows and the samsung installer is through windows
Hi I have a Samsung n150+ and it will not load o/s. I believed it to be the hard drive so I swapped with my daughters n145+ and it was the same. I then thought possibly the sata lead, so I swapped that aswell , still the same. now I tried the memory, still the same, I started to believe the mobo at fault but on checking the bios to check the settings I noticed that some of the letters are incomplete or incorrect leading me to the presumption that the bios is corrupt,i reset the bios but this made no difference , I then removed the cmos battery and reset by earthing the pins and this did not cure either.
how do I flash the bios from usb as the Samsung way of flashing is from within the o/s . I made a bootable usb stick and stuck the latest bios from Samsung but I couldn't get this to work .
could you point me in the right direction on how to flash the bios to the latest version outside of windows
as I believe the bios to be the problem

Make sure you are on Windows 8 Desktop. Try download the Buffalo WLI-UC-GNM_E-105 driver and run setup.exe with XP SP3 compatible. After the installation, your Wireless-N150 Ultra-Compact USB 2.0 Adapter will be working fine in OS Windows 8.

Check if the harddrive is detected in BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) setup by pressing F2..or F12 (depends on what key is designed for the BIOS setup).
- If the harddrive is detected in the BIOS (usually shows the harddrive name or values beside "Drive 0"), your operating system is corrupted. You need an operating system disc to install it.
- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS ( no value beside "Drive 0"), either the harddrive cable is loose, the harddrive is not inserted properly or is defective. Check the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop and use screw driver to reveal it. Try to reinsert it or use a good known hard drive.

Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer. copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\ copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
Based on the information you have provided it seems that the issue might be due to the Audio Driver, which might be un-installed or corrupted.

There are many possibilities that would create this problem. Can you try to install Windows on a seperate machine with the same disk? This would tell you whether the disk has been corrupted or not. If this option is not available, I would suggest cleaning the disk well and trying again. Again, there are many possibilities. Your power supply may be inadequate or beginning to fail, you may have hard drive errors causing the shutdown. The possibilities are numerous and hard to pinpoint without more information. Check to see that your installation CD is not corrupted first.
