Bios damaged


You are fortunate that your BIOS has a built-in recovery procedure. However, you will need a working floppy drive to recover the damaged BIOS.

Do you know what BIOS microcode you're using? Specifically, do you have an Award, AMI, or Phoenix BIOS? (Or some other one?)

Award, AMI, and Phoenix all have different procedures for recovering the BIOS. Once you know which one you have, search Google for "XXXX BIOS recovery" (Where XXXX is Award, AMI, or Phoenix).

Typically, the procedure includes placing a BIOS file onto a floppy, renaming it to a specific name (like AMIBOOT.ROM) and inserting that floppy into the drive.

Bios is damage please insert maintenance disk in drive and press any key when ready


If you don't have the disk you can try contacting the manufacturer, they sometimes have a copy of the Operating System disk backed up on your hard drive. If so they can tell you how to access it to restore/flash the bios.

This message is seen on the laptop screen BIOS Damaged! Serviceman: Place maintenance disk in drive and press any key when ready.


Hi,
The maintenance disk was simply a floppy with rewritten code on the first few sectors that bypassed any kind of checksum or self-diagnostic. Useful if you lost or forgot your BIOS password. Also let the tech into the bios to look at settings before replacing the chip. Back then it was cost effective. Nowadays they just replace the whole dang shebang.
Here are your main options, in order of attempt:

1. Hold down esc key when booting, see if you can get into bios. If not...
2. Remove battery and disconnect ac adapter
3. Gently disassemble case until you find a round coin-like battery
4. Go out, buy replacement battery, replace battery, then reverse step 3 and 2

If these steps fail, you've a bad BIOS chip, you could try to ...
5. ebay it.

Hope this helps!
