    Hello FixYa,

    Many thanks for your response. My mistake was, as explained on HP website, one should not attempt to flash the bios using only the usb cable. It should be on the cradle and on power. After reading from the website, it was obvious what I did wrong. I re-installed using the Windows Mobile 5 CD. Everything is fine now.

    Much appreciated.

If you have tryed hard reseting it then

You need to get your hands to a working flash of your pdas operateing system, can be hard to find, I was lucky I found many for mine.

After you have the software and the tools needed, most likely the software will have instructions so it shouldnt be hard to do.

After a successfull reFlash of the operateing system everything should be fine.

If you where playing with the bios you need to flash a working version to it. If you cant do it youself I recommend takeing it to a professional, the bios chip can be hard to reprogram.

Hi, my name is prince can any body help me. I have a mother board gigabyte 845 and we can not installed xp. we have done the partition but when system copy the system file from CD the system againt showing...


Are you installing Windows XP service pack2? This is the problem from the bios, upgrade the bios with latest and it might solve your issue. But be very careful when upgrading the BIOS if the proper version of the BIOS is not upgraded it may corrupt the bios and will make the motherboard dead. Download the manual of upgrading the BIOS from the website, you will also get the latest version of the BIOS from there.

How to upgrade BIOS in my XW400?


Upgrading the BIOS is an easy task but not recommended unless your computer has a problem which will be solved by a BIOS upgrade.

I assume that you are aware that a failed upgrade may render you system unusable till it is reloaded. Primary cause of a failed upgrade is a power failure so please make sure your PC has a back-up power source in case of a power failure.

The latest BIOS update can be downloaded from this website.

Download the exe file on your desktop and double click on run it. It is to be used on Win XP or 2000.

Before upgrading, check the version of your BIOS. If the version number is same as the one with you are upgrading, it means you have already the latest BIOS and it is not necessary to upgrade. The version number of this BIOS is 3.06 Revision A.

Where can I find info to setup bios. also how do I upgrade bios


Hi,
For this you need to know the exact model of your motherboard. Your current BIOS firmware version can be seen in the BIOS setup window itself ( Press DEL key during your system startup to enter into BIOS screen)
Your motherboard should have Flash BIOS so as to upgrade its firmware. All latest motherboards will have this type only. Goto your motherboard manufacturer website and search for latest BIOS firmware for your exact model. There itself you can find the utility required for BIOS. download that utility and using which you can update your firmware. Please do update your BIOS only if it is required.
I hopt his is helpful to you

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computer?s random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area...


What are you doing when this happens? It sounds like you will have to get a BIOS upgrade weather you like it or not. Visit the motherboard manufacturer's website and obtain the BIOS update from there.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.

Windows 200o pinstallation problem on intel 945 motherboard


I think that this can be bypassed on a per boot basis (press F7) on the boot where it asks you to press f8 if there is any problems. (before win2k flash screen)

you can get round this by updating your motherboard's BIOS

To upgrade your bios you need to follow the online instructions carefully.  (mis flashing your BIOS  can stop your board from loading at all)


FOR BOARD D945GCZ!!! WARNING  IF THIS IS NOT YOUR BOARD DO NOT CONTINUE AS THE FILES WILL BE WRONG!!!!

To upgrade to the latest bios  you first need to upgrade to ver 1788 (you cannot go direct to the latest version.. if your current BIOS Version is already 1788 you can skip this

please read and follow the instructions on this page http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&Inst=Yes&ProductID=2063&DwnldID=9165&strOSs=19&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=eng
one this is completed you can upgrade to the latest version here
