I may have erased BIOS on my Maxdata eco 4000a laptop. Can it be restored?


Your problem is the boot sector on the hard drive has become corrupt. Nothing to do with the BIOS.

Find yourself a hard disk utility and check your hard disk integrity.

Low level format your drive and reload your Linux

Will hdz965fbgmbox processor work with ami po1-ao mobo


AMI is American Megatrends Inc.

A BIOS program company. (Basic Input/Output System)

AMI po1-ao is one of AMI's BIOS programs.

Used on a LOT of desktop computers, and consequently several different motherboards.

How about the motherboard manufacturer, and model number; or computer manufacturer, and model number? Model number is on the back of the computer next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

Post back in a Comment.

Boot error always


Hello sir, hi your boot error can be caused by the following:
  1. Your IDE hard disk is not the first boot, and wrong available boot on the bios. Check your BIOS setup for proper boot device.
  2. Your IDE hard disk has bad serctors, since its P4, I estimate your drive to be 8 years or more. You may need to format the hard drive again and reinstall your OS (windows XP).
  3. IF your HD cannot be formated, or no amount of windows installation can be done on the disk, its time to replace it.
  4. Your IDE cannot be detected by the motherboard. check your BIOS configuration for proper hard disk setup.
  5. Your IDE hard drive and your CD drive are both master or both slave, set the hard disk to master and the CD drive to slave. The settings can be seen on the case of the HD and CD drive.
  6. Your IDE ribbon cable is bad.
  7. Your 4 pin molex power cable to the HD is loose.
If I miss out something, please let me know. thanks.

Does not show up in my computer but does in bios


Can you boot the computer from a boot floppy?
If so, try and partition and format the drive with fdisk and format.

Kob 740 ESC mainboard bios can not detect more than 99 gb of HD


What is your file format? FAT32 wont detect much Space. Try NTFS if not using. You should get the bios update on the site of manufacturer.

Slaving my hard disk


hmm..
it's hard to put it on words, but ill try my best.

1st Inserting and removing the IDE cables and power cables :
- 1st of all you should know how to insert the IDE cables and power cables, but before you remove the cables and put it back again, try to observe the color of the cables, the Red color of power cable is parallel to the red color of IDE cable. so when you insert it again, you put it on the same way, the Red color of each cable must be parallel.

2nd putting the jumper:
- try to check the printings on you hard disk at the bottom, and see if there's any tutorials on how to put the jumper.

3rd access the BIOS:
- to access the BIOS, click Del. Hence, before you modify any settings there, MAKE SURE to remember those settings that you modify, so that when there's a trouble you can put it back to it's default setting. Ok let's continue, if your BIOS has an auto-detect it will directly detect the Hard Disk drive that's being installed, if not you will manually detect it on the different Hard Disk setting. After modifying save and exit setting and reboot your PC.

i hope this helps you.

Weird error message on boot. BIOS error?


This is a strange one. Does the BIOS on your motherboard detect your hard drives at all? I'd try the lowest level first. If so, then try to boot from your XP CD ROM (hopefully this should work). Try to go into recovery console to see if your hard drive can even be mounted by the system. I'd check there.

If you still have issues,try to reflash your mobo BIOS to the most current one. Could be a flaky BIOS issue.
