This issue occurs due to various reasons. However, in this case it might be due to corrupt BIOS settings. To resolve this issue I recommend you to visit the following website to download and install the BIOS Update:

===Installation Instructions ===

1. Download the BIOS update. (from Dell website)
2. Double-click the BIOS update icon, and then click NEXT.
3. Accept the license terms, and then click NEXT.
4. If an Overwrite Protection message appears, click YES TO ALL.
5. Click OK at the Windows Based BIOS Update window.
6. Click YES at the next Windows Based BIOS Update window, and then wait for the update to complete.
7. At the Windows Based BIOS Update window, click YES to restart your PC.
8. If you see the following message during the restart of your PC, continue with the remaining steps; otherwise you are done with the update.

Default BIOS settings have been loaded due to BIOS update or checksum issue.
Press to enter Setup. Otherwise, allow the PC to continue.

9. Press and hold F1 for a few seconds to open the BIOS Setup.
10. Press F5 for a few seconds, choose YES, and then press Enter to load the BIOS defaults. (Use the arrow keys to choose YES, if necessary.)
11. Press F10 for a few seconds, choose YES, and then press Enter to exit the BIOS Setup and save your changes. (Use the arrow keys to choose YES, if necessary.)
12. Press Enter to confirm the save.
13. If you see a System Settings Change message prompting you to restart your PC, click YES to restart the PC again.

Also use a sytem utility software RegInOut -- a System Utilities program that includes several features which allows the PC users to speedup their computer performance. It improves system performance by removing junk files and fixing registry errors. Its additional feature of

How to update bios


To find the current BIOS version, follow the steps below:
  1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  2. Write down the BIOS revision number from the Main page. You will use this number to see if HP has a later version available.
    1. Go to the HP Software download page
    2. If you are presented with a page to enter your model number, type in your model number. For example, Pavilion p6230f or TouchSmart 600-1050uk.
    3. Select the version of Windows the computer is using.
    4. Click the BIOS link.
      • If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your computer at this time.
      • If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your computer. To do this, turn off the power to the computer, remove the side panel, and read the name printed on the motherboard. The name of the motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
      • If a BIOS update is listed, continue to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.

        Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary. For most computers with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions. For many computers before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive. The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens. If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
        1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
        2. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
        3. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        4. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
        5. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.

D946gzis bios.bin file i need pls help


Hi,

You need to update your bios interface and to do so, CLICK HERE. It's a PDF file and all you need to do is to click on the 3rd topic which is for the BIOS Update and what you need to do are as follows:

Updating the BIOS with the Intel® Express

BIOS Update Utility

With the Intel Express BIOS Update utility you can update the system BIOS while in

the Windows environment. The BIOS file is included in an automated update utility

that combines the functionality of the Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility and the ease

of use of Windows-based installation wizards.

To update the BIOS with the Intel Express BIOS Update utility:

1. Go to the Intel World Wide Web site:

http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/

2. Navigate to the D946GZIS page, click "[view] Latest BIOS updates," and select the

Express BIOS Update utility file.

3. Download the file to your hard drive. (You can also save this file to a removable

USB device. This is useful if you are updating the BIOS for multiple identical

systems.)

4. Close all other applications. This step is required. Your system will be rebooted at

the last Express BIOS Update window.

5. Double-click the executable file from the location on your hard drive where it was

saved. This runs the update program.

6. Follow the instructions provided in the dialog boxes to complete the BIOS update.

How can i make bios k8n-vm.rom to motherboard because i cant read from flopy this file , thank you


anaging and updating your BIOS
The following utilities allow you to manage and update the motherboard
Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) setup.
1.
ASUS EZ Flash
(Updates the BIOS using a floppy disk during POST.)
2.
ASUS AFUDOS
(Updates the BIOS in DOS mode using a bootable floppy
disk.)
3.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
(Updates the BIOS using a bootable floppy
disk or the motherboard support CD when the BIOS file fails or gets
corrupted.)
4.
ASUS Update
(Updates the BIOS in Windows
®
environment.)
Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to K8NVM.ROM.

Recovering the BIOS from the support CD
To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.
4. Restart the system after the utility completes the updating process.
DO NOT shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing
so can cause system boot failure!

Bios verify error


Flashing BIOS from Windows can be problematic. It's usually best to boot from a removable disk and flash from DOS. You can make a bootable floppy using Windows XP if you have a floppy disk drive.
Also, your problem may not be a BIOS limitation, it may be a configuration setting in BIOS such as Clock Speed or a Multiplier. Double check those before trying to flash.

The BIOS in the system is not fully ACPI compliant. I want to updated BIOS. How can I do?


Hi meangmoeurn, what makes you think your bios is not ACPI complaint?
Enter your bios & disable ACPI. The reason for this is windows must be fully updated. One windows has been fully updated you can turn on ACPI. Its a software issue.
Read through this Microsoft link;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314088

Update for ACPI, (Windows update);
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=B0FF829D-C427-4F40-BC56-F481837EFFBE&displaylang=en
The above update should be included with other updates. This is why I suggested the above.
If you still feel you need to update your bios,
(Flash Utility software). I'll need the motherboard model number & manufacture's name.

Good luck meangmoeurn!
Feel free to correct me on this issue.
Thank you for using fixya.
