    Why do you wish to flash your BIOS from DOS? The BIOS upgrades are meant to be done from Windows. Thanks.

Get your DOS version number and manufacturer details. from product catalog or enter the dos when starting up by using f10 or del. Download the BIOS update from manufacturers site. Follow the instructions strictly. Also check if you have sufficient power back up in case of power failure during upgrading.

No display of my cq40 330tu bios problem


Bios UPDATE was not OK. Never update BIOS unless necesary. Never update BIOS from WINDOWS. Only from USB and from MS DOS. You may need replace of the motherboard now. Your BIOS will have to be rewritten. If will not be succesfull, you will have to replace the motherboard. If the laptop still have warranty, take it back to the shop and DON'T MENTION ABOUT YOUR BIOS UPDATE. JUST PRETEND YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Good luck

Reset BIOS


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your Compaq Presario laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Can I upgrade Vaio laptop bios in Dos?


BIOS upgrades are USUALLY done in DOS. Most times, you need to boot from a floppy or CD that is specific for BIOS upgrade. Some BIOS upgrade software may be apllied through Windows, but this depends on your computer manufacturer.
BTW, if your computer is running ok, DO NOT MESS UP WITH THE BIOS. You may risk ruining your laptop.
IF IT IS NO BROKEN, DO NOT TRY TO FIX IT.
