My laptop is not starting or boot


BIOS updates have gotten much less risky over time, but things can still go wrong. You need to get your system model number and check the SONY website to ensure that you did in fact install the correct BIOS. This is the most common problem when the BIOS update seems to work, but reboot fails. Some BIOS updates are restricted to certain countries and/or certain sub-models. You may find a procedure that will let you reload the original BIOS and get control of the machine back. If not, you may have what we refer to a "bricked" machine. You can probably send it back for repairs, but they are usually too costly to consider. It may be too late to say this, but I learned a long time ago a good set of rules about BIOS updates:

  1. BIOS updates will not fix hardware problems that pop up - if the old BIOS was working before, the new version won't make things right.
  2. BIOS updates should only be considered if you are upgrading hardware (and in some cases software) and find that the original BIOS does not support it. Ensure that the new one DOES support it before updating.
  3. The golden rule of BIOS updating is.....if the machine ain't broke....don't fix it. A perfectly functional machine will not function more perfectly with different code. The risk isn't worth the some unknown potential benefit.

Bios update


Why?


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.

The BIOS has been erased, I do not have floppy, but i want to write the bios


In order to write a BIOS, you would have to have acess to very expensive equipment as well as be amazingly good at whatever programming language they use to write BIOS (something like Assemly or some other hardware-level language). In short, you can't do it.
See the motherboard drivers section for a listing of computer motherboard manufacturer driver and BIOS update pages or our support section for computer manufactures.
Unlike earlier computers that date before 1996, new computers have a Flash BIOS which enables users to update the BIOS chip on motherboard using a software program. These programs have the capability of correcting issues that may be occurring with your computer hardware. These issues can include, but are not limited to, the below corrections.
  • Add the capability of adding new hardware into the computer.
  • Additional options or corrections to the BIOS setup screen.
  • Correcting issues with incompatibility with hardware.
  • Update hardware capacity and capabilities.
  • Missing information or instructions.
  • Update a startup logo.
Older computers who need an update for the Year 2000 issue

Only obtain the BIOS update from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer, unless the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer is no longer in business.

Do not shut off or reboot the computer until the BIOS instructs you to do so.

Verify that the BIOS you have been instructed to use or the one that you are downloading will resolve the issue you are attempting to fix. Remember that BIOS updates will only fix hardware issues and will not fix software issues, unless that software is directly related to the hardware.

Verify the BIOS version and make sure that the BIOS update you plan on using is the next version. For example, if your BIOS is 1.0a, and the manufacturer has 1.0b, 1.0c, 1.0d, etc. You should be updating to 1.0b. If you need 1.0d, update to 1.0b, 1.0c and then 1.0d unless otherwise instructed by your computer or motherboard manufacturer.

Verify that the computer has been scanned for viruses, viruses that may reside in the write-able portion of the BIOS may cause the BIOS to abort or fail, possibly causing the computer to encounter additional issues.

If you are updating a laptop or portable computers BIOS ensure that it has AC power and is not running off the battery.

Finally, when upgrading a BIOS, it is important that your read the disclaimer and any other information or instructions included with the download. Many computer manufactures will not support a BIOS if done by the user of the computer without the instructions of a technician or company representative. If the BIOS causes any difficulty with the computer you may be held responsible.

How do I download a BIOS update without a working computer?

If you are unable to get to the Internet in order to download a BIOS update we suggest downloading and creating a BIOS diskette on a different computer. For example, a friends computer or a computer at your work.

I need flash my bios , motheboard quanta uw1, please


Why do you need to flash your BIOS? Only flash your BIOS if you need a fix for something, don't do it just because there is an update.
Anyways, You need to download the BIOS and put them on the USB drive, then boot from the USB drive and it will update your BIOS.

Bios update


Hi.
Be aware that you should only Update your BIOS when it is only your last resource, that means when you are having problems with your BIOS, because if the BIOS get corrupted you wont be able to fix it and your computer may become unusable.

If after reading this you still want to update it, all you have to do is visit the motherboard manufacturer website and look for an updated version of your BIOS, there you will find everything you need to know.
If you need to know anything else just ask, i'll help you with pleasure.

Good luck.
