Most likey you will have to use the "floppy" (or usb), FLASH utility.

Your vender website should be able to provide you this via a download.. alas, if you do not have any other means to access the internet, try using a public one (ie; library, kinko's, or a University or local coffee shop (pay as you surf), to download the "utility" *and the most recent BIOS file.

Once you have both. on the same device (floppy, usb, or cdrom), you will want to "power on" your unit with that disc in the drive, it should be able to boot off of that disk (with the flash/utility software), and most of them will immediately start the "flashing" of your BIOS with the new flash image.,.

once finished, (usually within a few minutes), remove the disc, and reboot (either hard or soft reboot).. you should be able to enter your new BIOS and re-configure it for anything, or at least allow you to boot back into your system. Hope this helps.

This is a very common experience among "BIOS Updates" when they crash. I personally have had to do this procedure on my ASUS M/B quite a few times, :) (due to improper Overclocking:)

But be careful *Not to try and "FLASH" to many times without success, or even to many times "in succession" (one after another), that has many times lead to "burning out" your BIOS ROM (chip), and you would have to order a replacement chip from the vendor, (i speak from experience on this one;), there usually about $15-$20.. If all else fails, it's not such a bad idea to order 'an extra' BIOS ROM, just in case this scenario develops again, and your stuck in the a inopportune time, just a thought :)

Let me know if you are still looking for help.

Cheers, and good luck.

    I would suggest using the Motherboards, "RTS.CMOS" RESET located on most motherboards.

    You can locate these (three) PINS by looking in your Motherboard Manual (under BIOS/CMOS HARD RESET), or by opening up your box and finding the common CD2032 Battery (quarter size), and usually* near by that is a set of 3 PINS (. . .), that will have the engraved writing of "CMOS/RTS" near them, the square Jumper will be sitting on pins 2-3, (usually), or 1-2, please check with your manual, or just take note what they are set on when you open it up at first, prior to moving them.

    All you need to do is;

    1st; Turn off AND Unplug the unit from the back,

    2st; remove the CR2032 type battery,
    (just push on one of the corners and it should pop up).

    3rd; move the square jumper from its original setting (say its 'over' the #2 & #3 pin)[. .-.], to the *opposite*, say #1 & #2 pins)[.-. .], let it sit there for 10-15 seconds, *then put it back to its original setting (say pins #2 & #3)[. .-.], THEN put back the CR2032 Battery! (this keeps your settings & current time)
    (just pop it in at one corner, then push down on the other corner)

    Close the lid, screw it back on, plug it in, and power back on.

    *most* motherboards will have this "HARD RESET/CMOS" jumper configuration on them. But *please check your manual first, if you do not have the manual, we can try and locate a copy of one online for you here..

    Hope this helps, I would have suggested it first-effort, but usually better to try & fix issues first with software, then with hardware.

    Cheers, and hope you have a great holiday!!
    Please let me know if this is helpful, or if there is anything else!

How to Install any Driver/Software which isn't Supported by Windows Vista/7


There are lots of old Soft-wares and Drivers available which are not compatible with Higher Version of Windwos.

So some Windows XP exclusive setups can be installed under Windows Vista/7 As Under.

1. Try to install the drivers in compatibility mode.
2. For that right click on setup.
3. Go to properties.
4. Go to compatibility Tab.
5. Set it to win xp sp2.
6. Hit ok
7. Run setup as administrator
8. Ignore any error and hit continue anyway during installation
9. Restart pc

If the above trick doesn't work, then use the device in VIRTUAL XP MACHINE
You can use XP MODE or VMWARE or any other Virtal Machine Application.

Hope it Helps..!!

Windows os

Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

Downgrading from vista to xp sp2

I know this problem, The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first. I think this is the correct link extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen) Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list) you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal) you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish) Hope this helps
