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...

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it.
Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Place a tick in either windows software or all software box.
You might have to try a few times to get it right.

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.

If the BIOS update doesnot work it probably should be a hardware issue. Check with Compaq Tech support if your system is in warranty.

Changed some things on BIOS to remove McAfee virus protection program because the computer was running slow. Now even my internet program (Mozilla Firefox) will not even download updates. I am not sure...


A slow running computer can be fixed by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Anyway, what are those things you have changed w.r.t BIOS? Make sure that you have removed McAfee completely through control panel.

Why does my fan seem to be cycling at all times which is slowing down the computer big time


your fan has nothing to do with your computer slowing down.
your fan goes on when a threshold is reach in the cpu temperature or another component's temperature being cooled. the question is what's is causing your cpu or your chipset to work harder than usual causing your system to seem to be sluggish??

the simple answer is malware and need for a clean up and tune up

I suggest you do the following:

1. get an air can, open the case and without touching anything and watching for ESD, dust off your system free.

2. close the case and turn your computer on

3. update your antivirus and run deep scans

4. get all critical updates for your system from windows update

5. download, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, superantispyware, and a square free edition, update them and run deep scans.

6. defrag your hard drive

7. to improve perforamance make sure you update or upgrade memory

good luck!

Sounds like the fan is making a whirring sound for first few minutes after boot up


You should visually inspect the fan (inside and outside the case) to check for dust clogging things up. Very often dust will accumulate on the fans and cause them to slow down, make funny noises, or it will collect on the processor heat sink and cause the computer to run hotter than normal, indirectly causing the fans to work harder to cool the system. If there's no visible dust accumulation, try downloading the newest BIOS for your machine from Dell's support website. A BIOS update may fix the problem by addressing the thermal sensor on the motherboard. Or... you might have a failing fan or thermal sensor.
