MSI MS-7060 ver 1 bios update


As old as this mainboard is, there would seem to be very little to be gained with a BIOS update. It will not provide any appreciable ability to upgrade components, and if you have used this board for any length of time successfully, updating the BIOS is questionable. Many people think that BIOS upgrades will solve all problems with the board....in most cases it only serves to fix bugs in the current BIOS, allow for a few later-models of the CPUs that are already approved for use, and upgrade firmware for the on-board amenities. Realistically, the only time a mainboard BIOS update is warranted is at purchase if there is reason to install the update to provide better performance. The risks of BIOS upgrade often outweigh the benefits; many of us are steadfast in the belief that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

What are the instructions for flashing BIOS?


Hello use auto detect here to find the right mainboard:

http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en

Download asus update, this is the easyest program to upgrade the bios, while windows is running.

Install first asus update:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/ASUS-Update-Utility.shtml

When the mainboard is found, select download, and select your windows system.
Open the bios folder, and download the latest bios version.
Unzip the bios file.
Run asus update, and select update bios from file, and select the bios file, in the folder you just have downloaded ( the bin file )

Be very carefull when you upgrade the bios, because a power loss will damage the mainboard, while the upgrade process is running.

You also have to setup the bios settings, when the job is done.
You have to select F1 or F2 to enter the settings.

If any doubt download the manual.

Good luck

I upgrade RAM on laptop, now runs slower. Running 64-bit WIN 7 OS,


Check BIOS if all RAM is being picked and or set to max on RAM settings.

Upgrading BIOS! If it isn't broken don't fix it. Upgrading is a scapegoat fix, and many manufactures have a disclaimer. "You are on you own, and the likes for a reason. Most solutions are found elsewhere.




However, if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade.

Hello, I have intel desktop board 845wn mother board and bios version is ''HV84510A.86A.0029.P07'' Actualy i need to update bios. So I downloaded file from below site....


Hello!

I must write again, because my conection is fall.
Upgrade bios first time is very hard, and upgrade bios is always dengerous.
First read from the site what you give with upgrade bios, and read all about upgrade.
The best solution is upgrade from the floppy, because you can save present bios, if something move bad.
In some case some part of motherboar isn¨t compatible with win. xp, and upgrade bios is solution for some bug on motherboard (broken sound, better CPU, better grafik card,ide and usb ).
It is question can you give anithing with upgrade bios in your case.

But if you want upgrade, do this:
X:\hv86ap15bi.exe (X - name drive in comp. from you boot )
Than upgrade give you a possibility to save your present bios, if you have a floppy save to them.
When you save or not bios then go far, and when is done you need to restart you comp.

Good luck.

Motherboard BIOS softwere for update


The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.

On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.

On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.

This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.

Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.

Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.

Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
possibilities:

1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.

2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.

3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.

This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.

===
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
with it.

1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!

2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!

N.B.
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.

If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,

the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.

(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

Good luck,

Price of a compaq rompaq diskette


Compaq somewhere on their website has legacy updates and archive products that will allow you to download legacy updates to very older machines. Its not guaranteed but you might be able to download a BIOS upgrade from that site and boot from the floppy drive and reflash the BIOS.

You can also try resetting the BIOS by changing the bios jumper pin on your motherboard. Instructions on how to do this must be googled by you (Make sure you have the right model and make before you search and print out the directions.) A majority of BIOS chips are fixed onto the motherboard with very few where I have seen removable if a flash or corruption occurs.
