Update BIOS what is the best method to doing this? If USB is the answer, then should I make it bootable or just drop the update at the root of the USB storage device? Can I update to the latest version, or does it need to be incremental? Thanks!

A word to the wise.

Bios updates are intrinsically not without risk and should not be attempted unless it is absolutely necessary. If all is working fine, leave it alone.

If mandatory, then consult with the web site of your motherboard for the update software and bios revision and their recommendations for how to go about it. An "accident" will result in a dead mo bo.

Brian,

Go to the manufacturers website and download the most current driver. Go to device manager and uninstall the device.
Run the driver install that you downloaded and then reboot the computer.
It should pick up driver you installed.
You are probably seeing the ! because windows loaded a generic driver and the device does not recognize it.

Hi. I have netbook acer aspire one AO725, it seems the battery wont charging.. I read about solution that needs to update the the BIOS version.. current BIOS version v1.5, the latest is v1.8 but, it w


I suggest that you make sure the battery is in fact good before you update the BIOS. If the battery was charging OK and suddenly stopped charging then the problem is not the BIOS version.

If you do decide to update the BIOS you will need to find the appropriate procedure to follow by searching the Acer support site and/or knowledge base. Please be aware that using an incorrect method or if something fails during a BIOS update it can result in unrepairable damage.

Acer Aspire 4736z always shutdown on start-up


Try to update your BIOS. Download it here : http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

You must need USB Flashdrive to update it. Please make sure that your USB Flashdrive is bootable. Here's the link on how to make USB Flashdrive bootable: http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/usb-drive-bootable/
After you make your USB FLashdrive bootable, copy that BIOS update folder in your USB flashdrive. Please also rename it in simple words so that you can easily access it using command prompt. And after that make your USB flashdrive as first boot priority. Then save and exit.
When the USB flashdrive is now booting.
Type this:
cd (name of the BIOS Folder)
cd DOS
FLASH
then wait it after it finish.
NOTE: Make sure you plugged in your AC adapter.

Hope it helps

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

Hello,
Borrow a USB floppy drive, copy the update on a floppy disk. You will need a floppy to update the BIOS of the old computer anyway. Reviving a defunct machine with Linux is a worthile endeavor.

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios? I don't have a floppy disk, can I use a cd rom?


The real question is why and truly if you need to upgrade your BIOS. You should avoid unless you have a specific reason to do so. Secondly you can use alternate methods to upgrade such as a bootable CD, which you can use several programs to create. UltraISO is one and a free trial is available.. The resulting disk will start on boot the same as the OS disk would self start. You should also check your Boot sequence to ensure the read of the bootable CD as priority 1. The bios update needs to occur in Dos, rather than through Windows. Look here for exact instructions fron ASUS:
http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?root=198&SLanguage=en-us
And look here for Bios update files:

Hi truckereric, The short answer no.
USB 2.0 is acheaved by two things.
1. You need to enter your system boards Bios. Find the USB settings. If USB 2.0 is listed here than your board will support it.

2. USB 2.0 is installed through windows updates.

3. If your board can't handle USB 2.0 maybe there is a Bios update. No, I checked your bios & there is no bios update to bring you up to USB 2.0.

AOpen's driver / software & bios support found at the link posted here. http://download.aopen.com.tw/Default.aspx
You'll need to fill in the three dropdown menues.
Motherboard
MX4BS
& Order by: LastUpdated
There are five pages of updates. If you change the Category dropdown menue to Bios. AOpen will show you the bios updates.
At least you have AOpends update link.
You can always add a PCI card that supports USB 2.0

UPDATING BIOS FOR ASROCK M266 A MAINBOARD


In order to update your Bios, you need to have a bootable diskette.
First make sure your 1st boot sequence is Floppy Disc. Place a bootable floppy, if you don't have one just do it by using unused floppy. Right click on 31/2 Floppy (A:), choose Format, then tick the box "Create an MS-DOS Startup Disk". Once finished use this disk to boot your system. After the system completed the boot process, replace your boot disk with your upgrade disk. Type the require command to update your bios.
Good Luck
