    I need the complete model number for the laptop, it will be on the base. The BIOS is model specific and if you install the wrong one, you have made your laptop a boat anchor.

There are usually two ways with Compaq's

One is with a DOS boot floppy

The other is via a windows utility

both are usually available from the support section on the Compaq website.

Heads up only do this on mains power not battery !
DON'T stop it or switch off for ANY reason

If you knew how many crashed bios questions come through Fixya.

Check the text file or only as to what problems that bios fixes and if they don't apply to you then don't do it.

Most bios updates fix very minor issues nowadays

Updating bios from ubuntu


You don't "Boot" a BIOS it means "Built In Operating System" it provides onboard instructions for the essential computer hardware, It is generally best to update the bios before you install the OS, as there can be difficulties and conflicts afterwards. You can update the BIOS and it is available on the Compaq Support site. Good luck.

I am assuming you mean you are updating the bios? If so set the laptop bios to boot to the CD drive and try that. Then after its done, boot the pc with the CD in the drive. When you are done, be sure you set the PC back to boot to the HD.
