Re: 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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your not going to be able to update the BIOS without having XP installed on the computer. I had the same problem myself as a motherboard i had would not update with Win 7 installed. If you have a spare hard drive and an XP install disk then i recommend installing XP on that and then download the exe BIOS update file and run it from within Windows to update the BIOS. After that just turn the PC off, put back your Win 7 hard drive and your good to go.
your bios is not updated properly. try again. make sure there is no power problem while updating. update bios from sis official site only.
but i dint understand wheather u already updated n the after updating its not working or u r planning to update. if u r planning to update then see that the ata cable is connected to motherboard. set first boot device as cd rom. then check if it fails go for bios update.
im sorry to say this laptop is just not fast enuf to run windows XP you best bet for this would be to run windows 98 or a distro of linux that fits your needs
there are no bios updates at this time that will allow you to install XP on this system. sorry
Click the link for the PC Operating System (like Windows XP).
Try to find the BIOS update listed under the heading, BIOS , BIOS- System , or RomPaq. NOTE: The term "Rompaq" refers to BIOS updates for Compaq Presario PCs prior to 2002.
If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your PC at this time.
If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your PC. This can be done by turning off the power to the PC, removing the side panel, and reading the name that is printed on the motherboard. The name of your motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
If a BIOS update is listed, proceed to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.
Step 3: Download and install the BIOS update
Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary.
For most PCs with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions.
For many PCs before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive.
The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens.
If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
Restart the PC and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter . When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.
