How do I upgrade the Bios for E5140, E5320, E5520, E6150, E6520, E6530 and E6550 LifeBooks?
NOTE: This BIOS upgrade is for E5140, E5320, E5520, E6150, E6520, E6530 and E6550 LifeBooks. The upgrade fixes an issue with the Full Dock II/LAN Dock II/Port Replicator II.
Instructions on Upgrading the BIOS.
Step 1: Create a bootable BIOS upgrade disk
This step can be performed on any system (desktop/notebook computer) running a Microsoft Operating system.
  1. Place the BIOS upgrade disk in the floppy drive of your pc/notebook.
  2. Copy the system files onto the BIOS upgrade disk to make it bootable.
  3. For example:
    MS DOS prompt: type 'sys A:'
    MS Windows:
  4. Double click "My computer" on the desktop.
  5. Right click the floppy drive icon.
  6. Select "Format?"
  7. Select the "copy system files only" option
Step 2: Upgrading the BIOS
  1. Attach a floppy disk drive to the LifeBook to be upgraded.
  2. Place the BIOS upgrade disk (created in Step 1) in the floppy drive of that LifeBook.
  3. Reboot the system. Boot from the floppy.
  4. At the command prompt, type:
    phlash /mode=3 filename.rom (put a space after "phlash" and after "3". Filename is the name of the BIOS.)
  5. Allow the system to reboot.
Step 3: Change BIOS settings (For users upgrading from Windows 9x to Windows 2000).
To allow Windows 2000 to better manage your system, change the following settings in your BIOS:
a) Boot the notebook and press F2 to enter BIOS setup.
b) Set Power Management to Disabled
b) Set Plug and Play OS to NO
Consult your user's guide on how to change BIOS settings.

How to upgrade BIOS in my XW400?


Upgrading the BIOS is an easy task but not recommended unless your computer has a problem which will be solved by a BIOS upgrade.

I assume that you are aware that a failed upgrade may render you system unusable till it is reloaded. Primary cause of a failed upgrade is a power failure so please make sure your PC has a back-up power source in case of a power failure.

The latest BIOS update can be downloaded from this website.

Download the exe file on your desktop and double click on run it. It is to be used on Win XP or 2000.

Before upgrading, check the version of your BIOS. If the version number is same as the one with you are upgrading, it means you have already the latest BIOS and it is not necessary to upgrade. The version number of this BIOS is 3.06 Revision A.

Can I upgrade Vaio laptop bios in Dos?


BIOS upgrades are USUALLY done in DOS. Most times, you need to boot from a floppy or CD that is specific for BIOS upgrade. Some BIOS upgrade software may be apllied through Windows, but this depends on your computer manufacturer.
BTW, if your computer is running ok, DO NOT MESS UP WITH THE BIOS. You may risk ruining your laptop.
IF IT IS NO BROKEN, DO NOT TRY TO FIX IT.

When i play 3d games like Guitar Hero III for example, the game play is all rugged and its very hard for me to hit the notes! so with my other . computer games like GTA San Andreas, the game play is too...


Unfortunately you have a notebook not a gaming PC so there isn't much you can do. Go into bios and if it will let you increase the shared video memory. When loading the game go into it's settings and turn all the extra video features off. Intel tend not to make the best gaming video chips and I don't know of any laptops that are upgradeable.
Your laptop should be fine for all applications and multimedia except games. I prefer to game on a ATX size PC so i can upgrade and change things, but would recommend you get PS3 or xbox if the notebook doesn't kick it for you.

How bios upgrade


if you go to the website for your board they will have the lastest bios upgrade and flash utility. also you will find a text file that tells you what bug fixes the newer bios cures.
be that as it may.... i just don't recommend a bios upgrade if everything is working as you can cause the computer to fail if you flash the incorrect bios etc.
