    Went back to shop today and the guy in the shop produced an e-mail from
    HP extending the warranty on my type of laptops. The e-mail was
    intended fot the USA, but appearantly it is valid world wide. Makes one
    think of dodgy batches. Anyway the shop took back my lap top and have
    sent it to be repaired. I guess HP will just replace mother board. So
    if anybody there has a problem out of warranty, it might be worth
    cheching your serial number.
    Once again thanks for your help and advice and so long for a while from Ireland.

Asus f3j bios mod for upgraded ram


Not sure what you are asking about. Asus site says the motherboard will take DDR2 533/667MHz SDRAM, 2x SO-DIMM socket expandable to 2GB
Which means DDR2 533mhz 1 gig per slot total 2gig
or DDR2 667mhz 1 gig per slot total 2 gig

To enter BIOs press F2 at boot up, but no setting should need to be changed.

They do not have a BIOs update for increasing the memory limits.
BIOs upgrades from first to current are.
BIOS 304
Update new CPU Microcode
System plays wave file and causes garbage sound.
BIOS 305
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.
Support Intel Extend ID CPU:Merom Celeron 530 CPU.
BIOS 306
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.
BIOS 307

Last upgrade date is 2008 7 14

Screen went blank after updating Adobe. Gives command at bottom left corner to press esc for start up menu. nothing happens.


Somehow it seems that updating adobe crashed your operating system. Take battery out. Keep pressing power for 30 seconds. Reinstall battery. Press power again. If problem persists check to see boot order in bios and test hdd for failure. Post here results

My computer wont start on after bios update failure


And nothing will happen. Do not PERFORM BIOS UPDATE unless strictly necessary. Do not perform BIOS UPDATE without CHARGER plugged in and be sure you have enough power for 10 minutes. NOW... If you are lucky, in service they will be able to REWRITE your BIOS. Check HP website for service in your area. If not, your motherboard will have to be replaced. Good luck. Keep us informed of the results.

If computer SHUT DOWN while reading BIOS FILES you might have a little chance to repair it. Unplug battery. Charger must not be connected. Press POWER for 30-40 seconds. Plug back battery. Press power. And pray before this.
IF this will not repair it... the two options described before will...

Dv6000 will not startup ,Black screen , hd isnit being accessed


When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

Update BIOS for memory upgrade


You cannot change the memory settings in BIOS. All you need to do is go into the bios screen. confim that it has seen your new memory and "save and exit" If it is not showing your new memory try removing and reinstalling the memory confirming it is installed correctly. it should just see it.

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?

Up dated Bios


first make sure you have the correct file, then you need to make sure you know how to do that. A botched "flash" will ruin your entire system. also take out the battery and only use the power cord.
