Hello!

Bios update can be obtained from the manufacturer of your motherboard's website. If for example if your motherboard (MB) is made by DFI, then you can fine updates at DFI website. Please check your MB manual. Hope this may help you...

Goodluck...

HOW TO UPDATE BIOS ON DELL 1526


Go to support.dell.com. Submit the Service Tag and click on Drivers and Downloads. Make sure the Windows OS is listed correctly and then scroll down to the BIOS category. Do not run the BIOS from the web site, but instead, download them and save them to your desktop or other convenient place and run them from there. Your computer must have a good battery with at least 10% charge and also be plugged in. The BIOS update cannot be interrupted! If the update is interrupted, it WILL render your computer useless! Updating the BIOS is a good thing for your computer. You should make sure your BIOS is always current. It will make your computer run faster, too!

Can't update my bios on hp pavillion a1010n??


Have you downloaded the right BIOS for your computer and do you really need to update this?

According to the HP support web site above the only version is 3.09 dated 21 June 2006 - if you already have this version, this may be why you cannot update it.

If your problem is that your computer is very slow, then updating the BIOS will not make any difference - you should concentrate on cleaning up and optimising the Windows file system.

Download and install the following utility programs that can help you to improve the performance of your computer.

Advanced System Care Free - run the Deep Care option of this utility.
DiskMax - run a Detailed Scan and let it clean up all profiles, updates, cache etc.
Smart Defrag - run a Defrag and Fast Optimize
CCleaner - use this to compliment the above plus use the Tools Uninstall option to remove any unwanted software programs, browser tool bars etc. Also use the Tools Startup option to disable any of the programs being started on every boot that don't need to be, i.e. things like QuickTime, Adobe Reader etc.

No Power


This may be an unrecoverable issue. The bios are very touchy, it's the built in programming that allows the computer to work, never do a bios update directly from the internet, download, save, then run. If the loss of power corrupted the bios, in most cases they cannot be recovered, and since the bios is what tells the machine to power and run, cannot be reloaded. You will probably need to replace the motherboard. Take it to a tech (Bestbuy as a last resort), tell them what happened and see if he/she can recover it. Techs have diagnostic discs for this, however and again, if it won't power due to corrupt bios, the disc won't do any good and they'll probably tell you the same, motherboard replacement. I hope I'm wrong on this and it's just something simple.

Laptop froze when trying to download Bios


The bios is a very touchy thing, if you screw them up you will have a door stop. Reboot the computer and start the bios update again. This time download and save the bios update to the hard drive and then run it from there. You should never run any type of bios program from the internet, you should ALWAYS save or burn to disc, then run. The internet is entirely to unstable for such an important update, if there's a glitch or loss of connection, even only for a millisecond, it can ruin your machine. If you cannot reboot and finish the update, get back to me and i'll see if I can get you through this.
