If you have failed with a bios update, you have usually bricked(completely broken) your bios chip, and therefore your computer.
You could try and make a bootable disc with the correct bios update and see if you can get it working again.

HI, do you still have the recovery disc for your computer? . you can try going to recovery console by:

  • press F8 after starting your computer
  • the choose last known good configuration
usually that will load the computer back the last time you were using it.

Cannot detected controller to install firmware


The error you describe is a bios error. No drivers in the os will help.
Maybe you can find a bios update that will support that controller, or maybe not. You may need a different raid controller that is properly supported by your bios.

Can't install windows XP on a new 500GB Hard Disk


go to the manufacturers website and see what bios updates there are ? If any relate to recognizing hard drive capacity then it will be worth while installing the update onto the motherboard.

If not then check your motherboard for enabling LBA and if you read the manual it should explain what each option is for.

Also might be worth while slip streaming your xp installation disc with the sata drivers for your motherboard ( the sata drivers you can get from your motherboard manufacturers website, download and extract them and then use nlite to combine the sata drivers with the xp disc and re burn the xp disc ensuring to make it bootable )

Nlite website

Seeing as you are combining drivers it may be worth while getting all the other drivers ie network card, graphics, audio etc and combing that with your bootable xp disc.

Audio Driver is not installing?


The error you got means the device driver cannot initialize certain ports on your audio device. It normally indicates an incorrect driver. PCs/Laptops normally come bundled with drivers but on rare cases, they will have some compability issues with OS service packs/upgrades. I suggest you follow these steps:

First, you must be sure that your chipset drivers are the later one, otherwise download it from Intel Website directly.

1. Completely remove all your previously installed audio device drivers.
2. Restart your computer
3. Download the correct audio driver for your system.
In your case its a SIGMATEL Audio Controller 9750.
Try to get it from their website, instead of using the bundled driver
4. Install the audio driver

    ECS GeForce6100SM-M Onboard Network Adapter does not show up in windows???


    I had the same problem. Tyr this.. Install windows x64 1st install the ide driver (it's a setup program) reboot 2nd go to device manager, you will see a PCI bridge device, update that driver to the lan driver on the cd. reboot Then install the rest of the drivers. If you don't do it in that order you will NEVER be able to install the Lan driver without reinstalling windows.
