  • Yosnowman2 Nov 20, 2007

    I upped the ram from 2 to 4 gb (4x1GB ddr 800 transcend ts28mlq64v8j).

    Could see more than 3 GB in the BIOS set up so updated the BIOS to 1601 to fix the problem. Initial issues said overclocking values were incorrect so reset to defaults. Now can't boot from HDD. Can see HDD's in BIOS setup OK. (still can't see more that 3GB ram)

    1. can't see more than 3GB ram

    2. can't boot from HDD (vista ultimate)

Windows XP can't see more than 3GB of RAM -- never has, never will. Even thought the BIOS may show 4GB, Windows will show 3GB - not a mainboard problem.

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.

Power failed during MSI P67A-C43 B3 bios update


Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address. If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive. Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board CMOS battery. The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions. Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu. If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced. Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key. Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter." Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu. Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer. Then let your computer fully reboot. The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically. When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically. If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.

Changed out the motherboard reformatted a blank hardrive, No issues in the reformat.Installed drivers then updated the bios.Currently will only boot to bios briefly then shuts down.Tried resetting the bios...


Sounds like your BIOS update did not complete successfully. Head to the board manufacturers website and check if there is some way you can reload the BIOS and recover from this. Most boards now have dual bios which means that if one bios chip fails or an update fails, you can reload the stored BIOS through the other chip. If you are unable to recover from a failed BIOS update, you may need to purchase a replacement BIOS chip from the board manufacturer. You may even be able to reload the original BIOS onto the chip through your local PC repair store so give them a call and enquire..

Firmware update interupted, server out


If you have jumpered for BIOS recover it should be able to boot from floppy. I think you will have to install a floppy drive, boot from floppy. Jump the MB for BMC update (if ness) and flash the BIOS and BMC that way.

Price of a compaq rompaq diskette


Compaq somewhere on their website has legacy updates and archive products that will allow you to download legacy updates to very older machines. Its not guaranteed but you might be able to download a BIOS upgrade from that site and boot from the floppy drive and reflash the BIOS.

You can also try resetting the BIOS by changing the bios jumper pin on your motherboard. Instructions on how to do this must be googled by you (Make sure you have the right model and make before you search and print out the directions.) A majority of BIOS chips are fixed onto the motherboard with very few where I have seen removable if a flash or corruption occurs.

Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner


With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.
